My boy loves to be rubbed and scratched. But he is definately not a kissy dog. Every time I ask for a kiss or smootch he snorts in my face. Guess I can consider that him "Blowing" me kisses huh? He'll smootch up on momma, but not me.
Mine are all very affectionate. If I lay on the floor I would be swamped with kisses. Unfortunately, or fortunately I can no longer lay on the floor, 'cause I can't get up! Just like the old commercial!!
Slim is not a cuddler. He tolerates me loving and kissing on him, but will never come lay with me. Oh but when HE wants to be scratched and rubbed he will keep pawing me if I try to stop. Also when I go to bed at night even if he is in a dead sleep, he wakes right up and follows me to the bedroom to get in his bed beside me. He is a big chicken. lol
If I am in my chair, that is all the invitation Buster needs! I have to fight him off sometimes to give my dead legs a break. I am usually first up in the morning so as I am drinking my coffee, he is up on my lap. The funny thing is as soon as my husband sits down with his coffee, Buster will jump down and get on his lap and that is the ONLY time he does it! First thing in the morning only, odd.
Geoff is not into cuddles, he does not like any attempt to Cozy up. I’m upset a bit at that as he gets nothing but love. He acts like he has ants in his pants . Always on the move never just sits down unless he is away to go to sleep. Sometimes I have to leave room to get him settled . He likes being scratched under his chest and if I try and stop he starts pawing me. Also he is constantly licking my arms
Meaty LOVES to have his ears, chin, chest, back scratched/ rubbed. We also
sometimes massage his VERY arthritic elbows (sad!) and shoulders.
He is NOT affectionate at all, which, at first, bothered me. I'd read
about dogs going to their hoomans when they're sad, sick, etc. And how they'd put their head on their hooman's lap, etc. It's totally fine NOW----i accepted it years ago! I'll never forget a scary incident from when he was only 6 months old.
I had just lost my brother and was crying soo hard. I went to hug Meaty, and
he snapped at me. Scared me to death! I knew from that day on NOT
to approach him for hugs.
Once in a RARE, RARE while, he will put his sweet wittle head on
his DADDY's lap, and it is just sooo sweet! We both love it when
he does it, especially since it's SO rare!
