I took our dog to the vet the other day to get some updated shots for her. It was a busy waiting room and the other dogs and cats made her nervous and so very excited and happy she hardly knew what to do with herself.
So I stood off to the side with her while SuperBoy made friends with all the dogs, cats and owners. No, I’m not exaggerating. Every single one was his BF forever. Meanwhile, Maddie (the dog) and I are standing there; her a bundle of nerves, me a bundle of keeping my eye on SuperBoy and a dog. Maddie sat down and leaned against me a little and then, here’s the odd part, she raised up her paw – as if to “shake” – and we stood there, side by side, holding hands/paws while we waited. I have never known a dog to hold paws/hands before. Does your dog do that? Or is Maddie, as I suspect, completely and totally codependent?
