    DefaultVelcro Lab

    My Mercedes is almost 5 yrs old and as of lately she seems to be really attached to me 24/7,,I love dearly but I almost step on her because she stays to close to me..like when i am cooking or doing dishes she is lying down right at my heels...had a check up when i got her rabies booster last month and she checked out fine.I am a widow so we are the only ones is the house. She was always a very hyper dog from day one and still is. When I have company over she has to always have something in her mouth and carries it around the whole time they are here. When I leave to do errands, etc she goes right to her crate and goes to sleep..when I return sometime she greets me and then goes back in the crate to sleep again!!! eats good , bowel and pee normal..what can be the problem if there is one? I love her to be by me but just worry that something is wrong and not being addressed.

    Since her eating, pottying, etc. is normal I don't think I would be worried. Has something changed with you recently? Are you home more (or less)? Did you recently return from a trip? If those things have stayed consistent, then maybe she is just mellowing a little as she gets older.

    I have a 16 month old velco dog. He follows me everywhere except the bathroom (where he lays outside the door until I come out).

    Since she's not a puppy this is not a real problem - but I've found if they're not velcro'd to me it means they're off getting into something they shouldn't be.....

    Aren´t all labs like that? My Brownie used to be like that, lying right beside me. If I moved two steps, she moved two steps also. Homer is just the way you describe your dog also. He´s always lying besides me. As long as they don´t start having separation anxiety (which poor Brownie did develop after my other dogs passed away) then I say it´s just normal lab behavior.

    They are lap dogs! or at least that´s what they think

    MOST DEFINATELY.


    All three of mine are velcro...try pottying with THREE in a small bathroom.

    Just a lab thing...
    Nothing cures a bad mood like a Labrador ... or more in your lap!
