    Definitely a quirky dog! I expect this will only increase as he ages. :D

    Paris will squat and pee on things to mark it as "hers" leading to exasperation on my part as she pees all over the hay I just put out for the lambs that are in her care...... :lol:

    Trip will lay on my feet. He has laid on things I was working on, but will get off if I ask him to.

    Mel likes to stand in front of me and block me from wherever I may be trying to go. He'll lean into me so heavily that I have to be real careful he doesn't knock me off my feet. No idea what he's trying to protect me from, but I constantly have to push him out of my way so I can get anywhere. o_O Still love him to death, even if he is a bit of a dork.:love

    Thank you! That's one of my grandgirls, my first one. And she is as sweet as she looks, which always amazes me! I raised 3 boys, so I was in for a big surprise with little girls and how much sweeter and more laid back they are. :D =D

    If I say "MOVE!!!" to Ben once a day, I say it a million....he wants to stand right in front of me as I move back and forth doing chores. Finally I'll say it like I am going to skin him and turn his hide into a rug and he gets the picture and will go lie down in a huff, with hurt looks darting my way every few seconds. :rolleyes:
