My mom came up today and brought Oliver with her (the Yorkie I got from Lisa's easy child, who subsequently went to live with my mom). Oliver is always excited to come over. He runs through the house doing the excited yelping that little dogs do and jumps from person to person. But, when my mom is ready to leave he will not let her leave without him. The couple of times he has stayed behind, he was watching the door every second. Today, Oliver wouldn't leave with my mom. I was holding him and when she put her arms out to take him, he squished up against me and put his head under my chin. I'm in a nasty flare and feel like koi. i think animals know this. He hasn't left my arms or my lap. Needless to say, he's spending the night. Cute.
