Holding Paws

Charlie loves to hold paws. In fact he demands it!

He'll come up and put a paw out for you to take. And forget ignoring it. Ignoring is not an option, unless you want to experience escalation in action.

No, your best choice is to take the paw and hold it. And hold it. And hold it. And hold it.

Eventually he will become tired and lie down. But you're not out of the woods yet. Oh no...

Even when lying down, he wants to hold paws. So you can count on doing so until he falls asleep. Eventually.

Then you can let go. Maybe. If he's sound asleep. And he doesn't wake up.

It will happen. It must...

Hey Chuck-Z-Bux,

I have the opposite problem - my Dad just loves holding MY paw, and he gets upset if I let go and walk away:-)
