I think that's a rule from the dog rulebook. They must be right up your ass while being annoying. If I'm in bed and they start to go at it, they are right by my side of the bed....or I'm in the bathroom getting ready in the morning, they are right there bitey facing it....we'll be out on the deck, with the gate open to their huge fenced in yard, and they are right up our asses.it was so quiet last night w/o hours of bitey face at my feet. (Really, there's an entire house here.. must you do that at my feet?)
They're showing off, just like kids.
