In the past few months Dexter has become much more cuddly. Before that he had no interest in laying with or on us. Recently he has started coming over to us (on the sofa) and will lay on us (in a totally loving way - he is in no way dominant).

My question is I wonder if this is a result of him getting older or a result of us getting Kirby? Has anyone with 1.5 yr or older doodles observed such a change in behavior? I totally love it - I like having a soft doodle to snuggle with :)

I haven't noticed that with our Sadie but it would be nice if she did. She follows me from room to room, and always lies close by, but she is not a cuddler. If she is coaxed up on the bed or furniture, she will tolerate it for a few minutes, then jump off the first chance she gets. She likes being rubbed and petted when she is on the floor though.
She is over two so I don't know if that will change, but we would like it if she became more cuddly.

Tanner hops up on the bed every morning for his daily cuddling. He will lay there for 10-15 minutes getting rubs, scratches and give kisses.

Other than that he doesn't cuddle. He does lay next to me on the couch most every morning when I drink my coffee and every evening when we watch the TV. I suspect he does it more now because of the cold floor and when it gets warmer weather I doubt he will lay next to be.

Napa's cuddly. Sometimes I have a hard time telling if he's attempting to be dominant, or if its cuddling.

But, usually he ends up sitting or laying RIGHT next to our feet to the point where he's almost on top of them. Then if we're on the floor, he'll come over and lay down to the point where is almost on top of us. He's on the floor, but he gets really close. It's the same if we're in bed. He'll lay at the bottom of our bed, inbetween our legs. Of if just one of us in on the bed, he'll typically just lay next to us. I think its out of love, because he's not attempting to push us away, or anything.

But Napa is, without a doubt, a cuddler. And I wouldn't have it any otherway....

My significant other has turned Ozzie into a cuddling zombie. He knows that once we are finished with dinner and she's settled in on the sofa to watch some HGTV, it's time for him to catch some ZZZZ's on her lap. So he sits there impatiently humming the theme song from Jeopardy until she hoists him up. From then on, he's immediately in a profound sleep. No amount of noise will wake him. It's kinda spooky!

Boyd is almost 21 months old and he has become more cuddly as he gets older. He loves his morning cuddles (I let him upstairs to join us in bed) and he will curl right up with us on the couch. However, the cuddling is on his terms. He does not tolerate being fawned over or picked up. :roll:

haha...yeah that's what I mean. This all just started in the past few months (he's just past 18 months). Dex hates being picked up too...sometimes I try to get him to come and cuddle by bringing him to me and he doesn't like that. He wants it on his terms too.

Sampson will come and put the upper half of his body on your lap. He like lays down but with his hind legs on the ground and most his weight on your legs. The funny thing is that he seems totally comfy like that!
