Hold me, Keep me safe, and Never let me go
written by the chihuahua
When I let you hold me on my back, it is because I trust you completely and I don’t have a pressing secret mission or place to run off to. Think of me as a baby when you hold me on my back. Let the back of my neck cradle in the bend of your arm and hold me secure with the hand of the same arm cupping my rear. This leaves the other hand free to entertain me, just as you were feeding a bottle to a baby.
I like belly rubs when you are holding me like this.
I could lie there, in your arms, for hours, unless of course, I get a secret mission. Giving me belly rubs is good for you too, they help you to relax and me to just completely vegg out.
I am young and developing my personality. As I develop it, I could start to growl or snap or have other bad behavior.
We can play tug on the rug, tug on the couch, tug on your lap and tug in the park. Because of my size we can play tug anywhere, which is why I mention it is best for me to be on solid ground if I must jump.
