Most pet owners will tell you that their pets have varying degrees of neediness. Often, cat owners will report that their feline friends are somewhat aloof. They may not require much attention and some could even be considered anti-social. But, I’ve met my fair share of cats that are very loving and social. They demand a lot of attention and will act up if they don’t get it. However, I’ve rarely met many cats that are as needy and attention seeking as dogs.
My own dogs are pretty needy. They want to spend all of their time with me, though that in itself isn’t unusual. But when three dogs ranging in size from eight pounds to eighty-five pounds all want to sit in my lap and have my undivided attention, it can get a bit difficult to manage.
Rueben, the dog in this video, really loves attention from his owner. Reuben’s dad, Mike, has this to say about him: “He’s funny, cute, demanding and the most social dog around. No joke, this guy makes our family smile and laugh every day.”
The pup is looking for some attention in return for that laughter and Mike tries to ignore him. After making a fuss, Reuben reluctantly gets into his own bed. “Look at that. How novel. He’s actually using his bed. For once. Although, he’s not happy about it.”
The adorable dog makes his displeasure known with the occasional bark.
“Because I can’t always have a dog on top of me every time I lie down. So, now he’s pouting.” Mike gets a laugh out of his pooch’s frustration, but it’s clear that things will be just fine between these two,
“Pout all you want. Give me a break just for today, alright? Alright. I don’t think this is going to last. Right, Reuben?”
