What does he want from me?

for the past few days Jasper has been ever so demanding! He will sit right in front of me and stare,and hufff, and puff, and grunt, and whine and paw at me. if I ignore him he starts lifting the handles of the desk and making noise with them... He wants something from me... I just don't know what! He has food, he has water, he gets to go out and potty, he gets to play with Cash and with us. He does not seem in pain. And remember this is my independent boy!

I am trying to ignore him, because I think he has learned that if he does this I come running trying to do what he wants. But he is relentless, and those big black eyes just bore a hole in my heart.

Could my almost 4 year old Neezer finally be acting like his kind and wanting attention?

What could he want from me?




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Attention! I guess. Any kind of attention is better than nothing with these little guys. As soon as I sit down anywhere, especially in front of the computer, Rascal is there, standing up and pawing at me - and yes, looking at me with those big brown eyes! Do I pick him up and put him on my lap, even though it is almost impossible to type or do any sort of work? Yes. I'm such a sucker.

lol- he is just doing this. All 3 of mine do this all the time. It will escalate if I dont play with them too! Belle always involves barks, Dash paws, and Dora jumping up at me.

Murphy walks across my lap top and stares at me! I think that means, "Pay attention to me!"

That's just it Amanda. He IS just doing this!!! this is very new. He has always done this when he wants to go out and do his biz. But this constant attention seeking is very new.

Yep, Jasper wants mom's attention.

Benji does it too. It depends on location and time of the day what he wants with his pawing- wants to watch TV, laptop screen, wants to sit in my lap while I do mail, wants me to pay attention to his favorite stuffed toy- Mr. Skunk or Mr. Foxie, or play ball with him.

Lizzie paws and nudges my leg for cuddles and belly rubs.

Best, Poornima

Missy- well I have sold it a bit in my office. When they are relentless and bugging me to play and I really can't.... I put a dog bed up on my desk and I pick them up and put them there to lay while I work. Belle treats it like a reward but Dash doesn't really like it

I think he wants attention and loving!!

Lincoln does this too. Especially when I'm in the bathroom (I guess he figures I'm a captive audience)....

If he comes over to me and does that, he wants petting/scratching and to be fawned over.

If he does it to the kitchen cabinet, he wants food or treats.

If he does it to the family room door, he wants someone to open the door for him because he doesn't feel like going out the dog door.
