This is lucy with my brother's dog Daisy when we visited them in California a few months ago. She loves her, she follows her and picks her up as much as she can with out getting in trouble.....that poor dog.
Her smothering compulsion carries over into other areas too. When she sees something cute, an irresistible urge overwhelms her and she can not control herself. She will squeeze the person, animal, toy out of sheer selfish pleasure without a thought to the object being squeezed.....i think i use to do that when i was her age. I find myself battling the same urge with the cheeks on their faces, and sometimes the other cheeks too;)
