|Sanka's leg goes crazy when his ears are touched. If you rub his ears, he'll put all his weight onto your hand and then his one back leg will thump and shake.
He likes to go up to the tall prairie grass and scratch his own ears. All you can see is his butt sticking out and his one leg wobbling.
But, once he starts scratching his ear, he gets into these scratching fits. If there's nothing for him to scratch his ear on, he'll just start to constantly shake his head. Everytime he shakes, his leg wobbles and thumps. It's so bad that he's fallen over from shaking his head and then trying to walk. His wobbling leg made him fall over. He'll have a hard time walking for the time being because his leg will just keep going everytime he shakes. And since he was scratching his ears before, he'll keep shaking his head. Sometimes he calms down on his own, and other times I have to put him in a secluded area to make him calm down.
I'm not sure if he really enjoys the leg shaking during all of that. You should have seen him at the vets office when they had to remove stitches from his ear....you'd a thought he was having a seizure his leg was shaking so much.
But he does have other spots that if I catch him while he's walking by, he'll stop to let me keep scratching the sweet spot.
