    My Studio dog, Jack, agrees.
    He finds it quite relaxing :eek:

    Thumper, the Useless Terrier, is the ultimate in Attention Hogging.

    If you cross your legs, he’ll run up under the dangling foot and expect you to rub your foot on his back until he gets tired of you doing it...about 3-4 hours later.

    I shouldn’t gripe...he’s around 17 years old and pretty soon he’s not going to wake up one morning.

    Almost as relaxing as giving your cat a bath. :)

    I'm a dog lover but would find it hard to love and pat that dog.

    Reminds me of this guy.

    No, I didn’t watch the video but the premise is super strongly true
    I always fell better giving my animals a pet, a scratch, a hug, or a belly rub. I’m sure they do too, but I have no real point of reference except they always want more

    I love dogs... That weigh more than about 20lbs when full grown.

    That little golden “type” pup is simply gorgeous. I’m assuming the older dog is the pup

    Lucy (6) is an absolute basket case of a lab ( lots of energy/ separation anxiety)
    but truly a wonderful best friend to us.

    Petting a dog is the BEST in relaxation! I miss our dear departed dog SO much and so I rely on the substitute dog next door that we sit for for pets and cuddles. And you know, he likes it too!

    And I love the well behaved pup in the video! :lol:

    Hell yeah!!!!!
    My sister calls them meth labs. She’s had several so she should know. Goofy and full of love and energy. A great companion animal under the right circumstances

    I can think of an activity that leaves me more relaxed than petting a dog.

    Sorry Trev. My little "dumped" mongrel terrier, Stitch", ( like Toto) died peacefully on HIS couch under the back porch about two years ago.
