Freddie is definitely liking it. Not a great video lol ,but he's moving forward and placing his paws up for more. BTW Fred hasn't answered Molly's Valentine request.

Nope! He is my affectionate one. If I lie down on the bed or even to do sit ups, he immediately climbs on my chest and lies down flat on me. Its so cute. He demands my attention several times a day. I love it!

Hah. My Hav isn't subtle at all. He tries to do a full body leg hug if I come home and try to take him for a walk without sufficiently saying hello! with lots of pets for him. So many headbuts and the paws on the arm asking for more. I feel like I can't possible give him enough love.

That is a really great video for kids! I wish they had one like back when Gucci was a puppy about "does your dog really want to be picked up by young children?"...

Gucci is generally more of a 'yes' type , but I have seen her say no a few times.
