when you are hurting? My grand-doggies will lick my legs when they are very painful. They always know. It's amazing. Neugat will lick my legs for five minutes and it actually helps. My other animals will be very sweet when they know i'ts a bad day. The cats will sit on me and purrrrrrr while the dogs will look at me with such sympathy. Is there anyone else whose animals feel your pain?
