I know that each person's dog is special to them, but what are those really special things that your dog does which makes your heart melt? I have two - they are regular moments when I feel as close to my dog as I'm ever likely to feel... 1. First thing in the morning, when the bedroom door opens, she storms in, jumps on the bed, and gets her face as close to me as she can. Sometimes I think she'd climb inside me if she could. Then she will lay there until she hears the words "let's get up then". At which point she rushes down the stairs as though her tail were on fire! 2. Each day I go and work out in my home-gym. As I do, Ellie comes in, sits on one of the spare benches and just lays there. I think it's great that she could go anywhere in the house, but chooses to come and be with me, despite the clattering of weights.
