Soooo, Bichons are the top friendliest dogs according to that article.
It is so hard to be me. I am all Bichon. I am cute. I would not call myself "friendly" to strangers. In fact... I am not fond of being touched by anyone I don't know. I don't know where those hands have been...
And I had a bad experience. Someone tried to steal me from momma.
So... if you are a stranger, let's be polite and respect personal space, please.
But now... I have to make a real effort to live up to the hype. Sigh.
JD is the greeter and social butterfly of our group. He loves being petted by female humans. He is all about lotion, perfume, painted toe nails... and sun dresses and sandals. We wonder about him. We wonder a lot... Momma says he has the soul of an old sailor. Kind of a strange statement, that boy does not give a hoot about ships or uniforms... it's all about the women with him... who knows what momma means.
All right. I am willing to try and be "friendlier". I will go into my TBFR ambassador mode. Just the same, let's keep it real. No kissing and no puffing my belly. That kind of intimacy is for my pack.
Like I said... it is not easy being me!
