Why is Lucy laying on her back?

man, she was at the vet yesterday and everything went fine, but now she has started to lay on her back in discomfot! Does it have a specific meaning?

She doesn't rub her back against anything and doesn't scratch herself, but she sniffs the surrounding area for 30 seconds and then growls while laying on her back and looking very angry.

Lucy has learned the "ROLL OVER" command and usually attempts to fool me into giving her a treat by constantly rolling on the floor in front of me, but today she's not doing it for fun. She's doing it with a lot of anger. She doesn't look to be in pain and she's very playfull, but just when it's time for her poop she has these strange rollings!

Her poops is normal and on-time now. The vet said she was just constipated and is fine now(she really is, except for these angry rolls!)

Did she get an injection at the vet's? Inbetween her shoulders? Cause the site might be irritating her a little.

No she didn't!

Is she only doing this outside? She could be rolling in something dead and/or smelly that she's found.
