stand-offish. Good Heavens! I can't even go pee without her! If I sit on the couch, she's on my lap.

When I'm at the computer desk, she has to lay in front of the monitor.

Anyone else have an affection starved critter?! LOL! :hug:

Yep, Ellie is that way with me. When i get out of the shower, there she is....when i sit down, there she is....when i walk around.....there she is.....she's my pack I guess!!!! Dori likes to go off by herself.

oh, at such a young age she IS very lovey. my cairn has become much more affectionate as he has got older (is not almost 7). at 20 months he didn't have time for a lot of cuddling, was a very busy guy.

Cricket is very snuggly too..and getting snugglier everyday. At one year old, she is far more affectionate than my 4 1/2 year old female yellow Lab, Lucy.

Another snuggler in Dusty. Every evening he lays next to me while I'm watching TV or on the computer. And every night right before bed he jumps into my hubby's arms to get held for a few minutes.

Pepper at 8 is a sometime snuggler: he will jump up by me on the couch for a cuddle, and then jump down and sleep on the floor. He too has gotten a little more snugglier (sp?) as he gets older. But my 6-year-old Westie is sleeping at my feet right now as I am on the computer, and he also stakes a claim on the computer chair right against my back. He sounds like your description of Ellie, Mrstki. They are so funny in the way they react!

When Packy was a little boy (well, he's still my little boy at almost 3 yrs.), I made him go into the bathroom with me because DH was busy and couldn't watch him. Now, Packy whines if I don't let him into the bathroom with me. He does the same thing with my Mom, who thinks it's really funny! He's normally very independent, but some days he follows me around like I'm attached at the hip. I think they get more affectionate as they get older, but maybe that's just my experience.

Mine are too busy being puppies still. Every once in awhile Miya will jump onto my lap for a cuddle but not very often.

Teona is my snuggler. She is always in your lap.

If I try to take a nap on the couch she has to be on me. She's like a little mountain goat.

If I sleep on my side she crawls up and lays on my hip and goes to sleep.

Cookie is the first Cairn I have had. She is a follower-everywhere I go in the house. She also is either under my feet or next to me depending on where i am sitting and what I am doing. She sleeps in a crate at night, but LOVES to get in bed with you and when she does, it is right up next to you. Her fave place to sleep if allowed is with my daughter on her bed. She will roll and whuffle, and even get under the covers. I was wondering if this was normal behaviour-she is about 2 and is a rescue from a shelter, so i don't know if this is something she is doing now, or if it will taper off later as she gets comfortable.

Henry has always been super affectionate and follows me around everywhere, too. He goes to the bathroom with me, sleeps outside the shower, lays on my feet when I cook, etc. He trails me everywhere.

Now that I have 3 in my house, we've started calling them our caravan. All 3 follow us everywhere we go. And they hate to be outside. They do their business and then want to be right back inside on our laps or ON our feet.

We have snugglers too. Scout likes to sleep next to me, but will lay down on DH. Finch is attached to my hip and wants to be on my lap all the time. She also follows me around the house. They both HAVE to go the bathroom with me....no question...always!

When Renny was a puppy, he was very much a snuggler. He will be 2 years old on the 19th of this month. As he grew up, he gradually has spent less and less time on my lap, but still tends to stay with me in whatever room I'm in. When I'm on the computer, he curls up at my feet.

Last week was a big exception when the fireworks were going off in the neighborhood. He spent the entire evening on my lap. Usually after our late evening walk, he will simply go to bed while I read in the tub for about an hour. The night of the 4th, he stayed right on the floor near the tub. When I headed for bed to watch the news before turning in, he curled up on my lap in bed instead of next to me. When I settled in, I literally had to roll over with him on my lap and wrap an arm around him for awhile due to the fireworks.

To sum it up, as he's grown up, he spends very little "lap time", but still prefers to be with me instead of off on his own.

i wish my dog would curl up on my lap when alarmed by fireworks and so on. on such occasions there is no way i can hold him --he shoots off my lap in the direction of whatever is provoking him, barking angrily the whole time and raising one holy (and usually very long) ruckus. i have never been able to get him to just hide under the covers or in my grasp. maybe when he's an old man...

Well...after 2 days...I have to say..it is like having a new human baby in the house...This puppy has already bonded with me...He is sleeping at my feet as we talk right now..I took him to the vet this morning for his first check-up here at my house..and he was perfect...No problems...with the exception that he would not give the vet a stool sample...I drove all the way home and took him outside..and guess what? I had to take a stool sample back to the vet....lol He and I have been out walking in the middle of the night and he always does his business....Do they plan things like this just for meaness? :devil: I have already fallen in love with him...and with that..Here's a picture of my new baby...Peyton!171198518-M.jpg

Barbi, I have to agree with the Vet, "Peyton is Perfect"!! What a cutie! I know you are going to have a long and beautiful life together. Whenever you're feeling a little low, just look into those beautiful brown eyes of Peyton's and it will lift your spirits. Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!!

My youngest cairn, Hannah (3) is my little snuggle bunny. Kiara (6) and Abbey (almost 4) keep more to themselves, but Hannah is a very much "in your face" type and wants to be w/ me 24/7. She's the only one who loves to lay at your feet for belly rubs. I have to laugh at Kiara tho, when I bring them all in from outdoors and dh is home sitting on the couch watching TV, Kiara has to run and jump up on the couch and kiss him. She loves her daddy!

I think my girl, Izzie (14 months old), became a little more affectionate after she went through her first heat cycle (her only one--spaying will happen shortly).

I was thinking about the bathroom thing yesterday (she also follows me to the bathroom). I wonder if because she pees and poops with me standing close by, she thinks she needs to watch over me doing it? Kind of a reciprocal protective service?

Yes, my Ellie is like that. Always at my heel, she follows me everywhere I go, and she DEMANDS attention constantly. If I go to take a nap, she's right there, curled up on my feet (she's an excellent foot-warmer). Nothing stand-offish about her!

Peyton is adorable!

You will have such fun with him and yes, it is like having a baby in the house.. lol

I questioned myself after my husband suggested getting our 2nd one but I'm glad we did! :)

Jazz is our snuggler. Digs only want to snuggle when his sister has been let on the bed in the morning for snuggles. Otherwise Digs can be more like a cat. Jazz will follow her dad everywhere he goes, and if you pick her up and lay her on you she will drift off to sleep.
