Hey Dad, while you're just standing there could you scratch my back? Please.
Oh, that feels good.
Could you scratch a little lower and more to the left? Ummmm.. that's the spot.
Tess's favorite activity is having her back scratched. Any time she sees a human standing around, not doing anything she interprets as important, she asks them to help her out. Once you're done, she'll run around like crazy to show how happy she is, then she's back for more scratching.
