The other day, as Luke sat on the couch between my hubby and I, giving and receiving hugs and snuggles with both of us, I commented that I thought he was the most affectionate dog we’ve ever had. While all our dogs have been loving, Luke seems to seek out that love more than others ever did.
He has his independent times too, like when he decides it’s bedtime and he’s going whether we’re ready or not. He keeps my spot on the bed warm until I get there, and he almost always sleeps right between his Dad and me, often with his head on Dad’s pillow.
Maybe it’s because he’s an only dog, and maybe it’s because he doesn’t share his love with many other people (in person – he loves all our readers!), but the bond we all have is very special, and it means the world to my hubby and me. So no matter his quirks and challenges, the love he gives us makes it all worth the extra effort he needs. ♥

Awwwwe. How cute.
What a sweet description of Luke. Our special boys share lots of traits, and this is another one.
I was amazed to read that you’d been through the same sudden changes in putting on collars, clipping nails, etc, as we’ve recently been through with Hachi. I don’t know what to make of the similarities except that perhaps we can learn from each other.
Absolutely! But I also think it shows that a lot of their issues are genetic, not brought on by something we’ve done or haven’t done. That makes me feel better. ♥

Luke is such a sweetie.
He’s a sweet boy and he’s lucky to have such wonderful owners who can give him all the love he needs.
Thank you!!! ♥

Their love makes all the crazy or worrisome times so worth it. Luke is such a sweetheart!
Awww, you just described our Little Bit. She loved on us all the time too. She slept between us each night as well. Most loving pup ever. We think it’s because we spent so much time with her.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Lovies and scritches to Luke. ♥
I think you are right about the time spent. Since Luke has become an only dog he also gets all of our attention, and I think he loves that. It also helps that I work from home some so we are lucky to get to spend a lot of time together.

Amen! Ducky is like Luke – very affectionate with us (especially me), but also with an independent “streak” – makes them all the more special, just like their needs.
I like that they have their independence too. It makes me feel better if we have to leave Luke home alone.
That is so sweet! We are blessed that Dakota is super affectionate too 🙂
