All the dogs I've ever owned didn't like it if someone touched MY feet. Why is this?

I do have one foot that is partially paralyzed and I'm slightly more careful about what happens with it, as I can damage it and not know that I've done it (most of the foot has no feeling) but I normally like having both my feet touched, so I don't think I'm putting out any hidden signals that they pick up.

They probably sensed your handicap and were protecting you. Dogs do protect their owners.
