dogs are weird

I have two Pomeranians but one took a more potent liking to me while my first pom obviously worships my husband. Anyway, Meeko. My little lap dog. He does this thing that makes me burst out laughing and I have to know if anyone else's dogs do this!

He sits on my lap a lot. He's a 9 lb dog so it's not a big deal and that's why I chose poms. But he'll be sitting there while I pet him and he'll just like, make a head flop onto my chest, kind of like a soft head butt. It is so silly and I laugh every time he does it!

Does anyone else have a dog or cat that does this? It's absolutely ridiculous.

My 8# Chi does pretty much the same thing. She'll sit up on my lap & put her head back against my chest so she's looking up at me & its the most precious thing. Or I'll hold her & she'll put her head on my shoulder, I call it a hug, and I give her lovings.

I've always loved dogs but small dogs seem so much more easily bonded to people than the larger ones I've had!

I love that little hug thing! Both mine do it though Meeko moreso than my other pom lol I am glad I am not the only one with overly adorable dogs.

I think people tend to "baby" small dogs more than larger ones, you can pick them up & cuddle them easier, they can lay on your lap for hours; big dogs not so much. I had a 105# Lab & she was quite bonded to me, followed me everywhere, wouldn't eat well if I didn't feed her & wanted me to love on her all of the time.

Ahh you definitely have a point. It's easy to baby when they're puppies but after a certain weight it's kind of hard to let them sit on ya.

I had originally wanted a large dog but with a small child and cats we decided a small dog would be best for our lifestyle and time.

dogs are weird

Most people would say that the bigger dogs are better with small children. They can take much more abuse (small dogs are much easier to injure) and tend to play a guardian role over children. However, big dogs come with big responsibilities so it's certainly a balance there.

I'm glad my gf's kids are older so I don't have to worry about them with my chihuahuas, but when there's a baby some extra attention will likely be required.

And yes, my chis do that too

My dogs are patient but snippy. I agree, big dogs are better with kids in my experience but you gotta do what you can when you live with other people. They honestly believe my poms will kill one of the cats when they are TERRIFIED of the cats.

The cats are bigger.

Oh they get pretty rough with each other. It's not a good day of play until someone yelps.
