Loving Touches

Duff here. Auntie Pookie loved to be Petted. And fussed over. And Kissed. And Loved on. She was a Pro at garnering Attention, even down to the Pathetic Look at the End. She had so mastered that last Technique that It usually resulted in More Petting. Perhaps even a Snackerel! Living unstuck.

I have taught Mom to do This in Moderation., for I am an independent Little Fellow. In the morning, I am at Her Mercy. She pins Me down to brush My Silky Fur, wash out My Eyes, and tend to My paws. We’ve got that Move down to about 2 minutes. Then I’m up! But there are Times when I want Her Loving Energy. My Pleading Brown Eyes work Their Magic to best enhance My chances of Some Lap Time. It works! Living unstuck.

How about You? Do You get enough Attention? Or are You okay on Your Own? I say: You can never get Enough Loving Touches. Hugs. Pats on the Back. Smiles. Just plain Loving. It greases the Wheels of the Relationship. You might even get a Treat! Live unstuck. #unstuck-living#loving-touches

Children (Canines) need loving attention, closeness, and deep affection . . . and also a loving touch. Love will make them feel safe.
