Massage comes in many forms

Massage -- as a form of touch -- creates a bond between people and animals alike.

Here at Phillip Island, our back verandah fills with light and sunshine most mornings. Consequently, it's a favourite place for breakfast and morning tea. It's also the place where our two German shepherds have their beds. Major loves nothing better than to lie in a pool of sunshine with me massaging his tummy with my bare toes (and I have long toes!). Del prefers a little distance.

Both dogs love their nightly groom, however, leaning into the brush, clearly enjoying the rhythmic brushstrokes against their skin.
