Lip Quivering

Hi Everyone,

I've just joined the forum. I'm the mom of a beautiful 4 year old black girl who I adopted 6 months ago. I've noticed that sometimes her bottom lip quivers, and I can't figure out why. It doesn't seem to be related to any emotional or physical state. It doesn't seem that she's cold or scared. Do other greys do this? Any ideas for me?

Thanks! :colgate

:lol They do other stuff too for no reason! Mine chatter their teeth when they are excited, you can hear them clicking from other rooms. Only one of mine "smiles" at me when I get home. He will also talk back to me when he wants something and gets mad when I tell him to go lay down, he can be a pest!!

 

So I don't think it's anything to worry about, she's probably just excited to see you and is happy. I think she may end up chattering her teeth eventually too!

Nothing to worry about :)

Our boys, when they smell something of interest (female dog pee) their whole bottom jaw quivers.

My guess is its an excitable thing. She probably does it when she is exciited. Cassie does as well as her teeth chatter

Ditto here. Thats when Petey does it too. He use to teeth chatter but now it is just lip quiver.

My dog's chin/lips quiver when he's excited. Nothing to worry about.

Welcome to the "GT Family". Sioux's whole bottom jaw quivers and his back legs shake and make his toenails hit the tile floor. It is so funny. That is one way they show they are happy. They also spin around in circles in front of you and sometimes bark too.

All that aside, if the dog is doing this when s/he is not excited, I would be watchful. Neurological problems can present with tremors of the jaw and other body parts. If it happens only when she is happy and excited about something, though, I'd figure it's just as everyone above is saying.

Thanks everyone for your kind and helpful replies. I'm glad to know that she's happy and/or excited. I want her to have a happy dog life in retirement!
