I’m feeling a little bit less anxious about integrating my puppy into our house. It comes and goes. Thanks for all your nice replies. I work from home, and I try to work in my study. I’d really like Arthur to come and settle down with me. And I think he wants to! But, he really loves to sit on the sofa with us, and to snuggle. I think he wants to sit ON me while I’m working. Which is not really practical, or possible. I’ve made him a blanket/bed area in the study room, and I’ve been encouraging him to settle there, but it would be great to have some suggestions about how I can make him comfortable near me, but not sitting on my lap. I’m thinking of putting his blanket over my feet, so he can come and sit ON them. And letting him snuggle with me at other times of the day when it is practical and possible. Any other ideas that might help?
