Good afternoon, thanks for your question. Can you tell me more about your girl?

1) Is it just today that's bothered her?
2) Is she otherwise normal when she's walking, is it just sitting that bothers her?
3) What breed is she and how old?
4) Is she regularly groomed?
5) Has she had any past issues with her tail or bum?
6) Have you noticed any scooting of her bum on the floor? grass outside?
7) Is she sensitive if you try to examine her back end, perhaps tucking her back end and moving away?

This additional info will help me to give you the most accurate information for your situation.
