Tomba went thru a stage where she was segragating herself from us (around 6mo's). Like she wouldn't lay next to us on the couch. So every day I would go lie with her on the couch and cuddle her. After doing this for about 3 wks she started getting on the couch beside me. But she couldn't figure out how to lay with me. She would bump me over and over with her body trying to figure how she was to lay with me. Finally I would have to take her front legs and pull her backwards to lay her on me. She's 1yr now and still can't figure it out. Bumps me still and I have to adjust her to the position she is trying to achieve. It almost looks as if she's being frisky, but she's not, she just can't seem to do the math haha. She's a smart girl, but for some reason this still baffles her. I've managed to teach her how to recieve love and enjoy it, now she is the most effectionate dog ever. The bumping thing still cracks us up every time. Never encountered a dog like her EVER.
