Sammie’s been quite the snuggler lately. When she’s not goading Emma into rough-housing inside, she’s snuggled up as closely to Aaron or me as she can get.
Of course, I love it! She’s the best at giving snuggles. If she sees a space, she’ll find a way to fit in it. The first picture above is a good instance of that. I was probably laying on my side, and she saw room next to me so came right on up.
She’s back to chewing on her paws again – that had stopped for a while after we moved into the house, and I still don’t think it’s as bad as it used to be. The BIGGEST improvement when it comes to her feet, though, is her willingness to let me touch them. She still doesn’t like me spreading her toes or feeling between her pads, but I can hold her paw and pet the tops/bottoms of them without too much difficulty. She really needs her nails trimmed, so I’m hoping some treats and this improvement will make doing so easier.
She’s also been more willing to go to her kennel when she needs a break from Emma, and Emma seems to understand that the kennel is Sammie’s “safe space” and that she needs to be left alone when she’s in there. I’m glad Emma loves Sammie enough to respect her space. It makes me so incredibly happy when everyone gets along!
