i agree. in fact, aside from entertaining me, that's harriet's main job.

hmph, with Fancy its all about manipulation and guilt-tripping me. She gives me the look. You know, the absolutely pathetic, I need you, look. If I happen to be otherwise engaged at the moment I find my shirt getting the snot-blowing treatment. That and the really dramatic sigh are precursors to the goofball climing into my lap.

the dogs are generally surprisingly tolerant of Saber's many foibles).

that's pretty darned cool.
When he's looking for something he stares very intently, without blinking, in the direction he thinks the something is (and often there's nothing there, har har har).

bless his little heart!
I think it's probably more common than not. Emmett lays his head on my legs or hip if I'm in bed reading, but I won't let him do more than that because he's just too big.

good plan. a few times, harriet's climbed on top of my back while i was sleeping. she's only 47lbs and it damned near killed me.
Saber doesn't try because he does worry about provoking the other dogs and he can't often tell where they all are.

is he the one who used to have social dorkitude issues? it sounds like he's acquired some sensitivity about inter-dog relations.

harriet does fit in my lap, though. she's a petite, dainty girl, and can curl herself up into a ridiculously small, lap-sized ball.

Grace, my massive 26 pound bc, only occasionally wants to be in my lap. When she does, it's often in order to bite my wrists. She's fallen asleep in my lap a few times, gently biting my wrist like a doggy pacifier.

oh yeah, harriet pulls that crap, too. sometimes it works for her, and sometimes it doesn't. i'm pretty pigheaded and single minded, though, so when i'm not in the mood to acquiesce, i don't. she quickly gets the hint, and goes to her crate to sulk.

I, um, well...Fancy kinda-sorta (always) tells me what to do, ... a sex-change to accomplish it. I need a 12-step program.

Oh that'd surely work too. I don't drink alcohol so a stiff drink should take care of me for several days!

Cala's big thing is that when it gets near feeding time she sits about a foot away and STARES. It's a very neat, tucked sit. Very alert. Ears straight up. STARING. Occasionally she flumphs into a down. Complete with staring. She'll stay that way, motionless, for 15-20 minutes. Now mind you, can I get a down or sit stay when I want one? Hah.

Spenser likes to curl up with his feet tucked into hand. And then he either tucks his chin also inside my hand or rests it across my wrist. Both he and Sassy also grind their teeth just a little as they relax just before sleep.

It's pretty cool.

He went to the School of Emmett(*). Saber's endlessly entertaining, being very careful about walking around and keeping his head turned away from a dog that isn't there. Har har har ^ 2.
(*) Emmett got schooled himself last week. All hail Queen Crow.
