is this good or bad?
Many of you know my trials with Jasper, my very independent, insecure alpha, who really wants to be an omega dog. But one of the things about Jasper that was always good was he was totally independent, would prefer to spend time by himself in his room on his chair, and was never phased by what we did or things like thunder.
Lately, he has been very watchful of us. If one of us goes up stairs he will sit at the bottom of the steps so he can watch both of us. And if there is a storm, like right now, he will come and lie down between my chair and the wall. He does not look anxious, is not whimpering, or cowering just sitting next to me and staying there. Part of me thinks it is good that he is looking to me for comfort (and I love his attention.) But another part thinks it is yet another phobia that could escalate. So I have not been coddling him when he does this.
He is now 2 1/2-- what are your thoughts?
