I have two little white fuzzy dogs, one a Maltese and the other a rescue (guess is Bischon/Poodle). They are "my kids" (I am kind of embarrassed to say that!) They have always slept in our (large) bed but now they can't get close enough to me. The only problem I have had is that they have gotten very protective of me and when new people come in, the little one nips at their ankles. Now the rescue dog is copying him. I think I am going to get soft muzzles for them both. They also are barking a lot.

Hi Cindy. I'd like to welcome you to the Long-term illness group. You've already jumped in on some discussions, which is a great way to get acquainted with others. Request some friends that have things in common with you, and try out the chat room sometime. I look forward to getting acquainted with you here in Widville.
