Well it seems my Buster has become very clingy as of late. I cleaned off the recliner in my office Friday morning and Buster has now made it his home so to speak. All day long Friday he would follw me each place I went. He would lie in the recliner then when I got up to use the bathroom he followed me sitting at the door waiting for me to come out. Then he followed me to the couch laying alongside me. Then to the office again. On and on and on. he just seems to have gotten really clingy since it got really cold. So does your dog or cat etc ever get this clingy to the point you feel like you're being stalked almost? HAHAHA!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

What an adorable dog! And a cute name too! It's nice that he needs your presence during this cold spell that has hit almost everyone in the country.

Buster must be around 8 or 10 years old I think. He loves getting up on the couch to curl up against anyone for warmth and human contact as well. I love the warmth on nights like last night and tonight. HAHAHA!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hello dear happy Grandpa Bob. It is very interesting of your clingy buster to follow you everywhere, which can be seen that he likes and depends on Grandpa Bob very much. I am sure that he is very happy to be with you from his daily performance that way. You are really good friends to each other. Keep up, Grandpa. lol

He loves me dearly. I am the one he listens to when he wants his treats each day. HAHAHAHA! I got him wrapped around my fingers. Either that or he has me wrapped around his paws. HAHAHAHA!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I know what you mean. My cocker spaniel Sonny is 13 years old and all of a sudden he has started to follow me everywhere. Everytime I get up he does to. I don't understand why he is doing this all of a sudden. He never followed me before.

I don't have that situation instead there are 3 Albino Catfish driving me a little crazy today. They are wall walking, begging and eating the bottom of their vegetable. There isn't anything wrong with the top, but they are trying to get it to float.

They have a cucumber, but don't like it. I need to buy a zucchini, as its their favorite vegetable. My local store didn't have any available. I'm going to start growing them next season, as they have been eating a lot of them.

Shilo - Beagle  - Shilo is a 2-3 year old beagle we got from the animal shelter in Jackson Michigan a few months ago.
Oh yes, I know this one well - actually took me a few minutes to get camera but I have what I call 'My Shadow' who is otherwise known as Shilo. Shilo has been my shadow since the second day we brought him home from the animal shelter. We thought he would be a great companion for our grandson, 5, but grandson moves to fast for Shilo who has obviously been abused and wants nothing but to be as close to me as possible. Right now I'm in a glider rocker which means there's not room for Shilo next to me so he's keeping a close eye on me from the loveseat 10 feet away.

I keep hoping Shilo will adjust but anytime anyone moves fast or makes loud noises he runs to me and tries to hide in my armpits or behind my back - he'll shiver and shake for an hour. I really feel bad when I 'yell' at grandkids or son - Shilo doesn't like that either and is totally confused as to what to do then "Oh no Mom's losing it too where do I hide now?"

How cute of Buster. Our dogs are not clingy because they have their own room and do not wander around the house. The indoor cat sometime tries to be practically on top of you to the point of following you into the bathroom at times. Not very often though. He usually is in get the heck away from me mode.

Buster is basically an indoor dog even though he loves running around out back. So this is a strange action for him. But I love it. Hee hee!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yes, my mini fox terrier is like this. She just follows me everywhere when inside. If I go to make the bed, she gets on it. When I am on the computer, she lies on the lounge near me. I am really not sure why some dogs do this, other than a desire to be with their owners 24 hours a day.

yeah seems my Buster has been starving for attention as of late. He is always bugging dad as weel. Wait let me rephrase that, dad is always bugging Buster to climb into his chair with him. HAHAHAHA!!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

My dog was like that....if I was upstairs....he was...when I went downstairs..he did. If I laid on the couch ...he laid on top of me...but that was only in the last few years of his life after the kids moved. I was never anyone special to him even though I was his main care taker until the kids were all gone. Then he was my constant companion..

It's just odd because he has never been this clingy to me in the past. Don't get me wrong I love the attention myself. HAHAHAHA! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

This is kind of a new action for Buster is all. If we are gone for awhile when we return he follows us. But this was ALL day Friday he followed me. HAHAHAHA!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Actually, Sherlock is doing that to me today. He won't let me lie down for a nap, when I sit in the computer chair, he whines until I pick him up. He followed me to the bathroom, the kitchen, and has also tried to eat from my plate. It's rather odd.

All my animals follow me around where ever I go. I am their mamma. The dog thinks I am the only one that is supposed to let her out. They all sleep in my room. I am the one who feeds them. I have a bunch of critters too. 3 cats, 1 dog, 1 puppy, and 2 birds, plus the 2 legged critters (people).

I have a cat that likes to follow me all around. I can be at one end of the house and he'll see me move. All of a sudden there he is at my feet and then he is relentless. He will try to go every where with me.

That's my Taj. He is always following me wanting pets. He's my sweet son, but sometimes he's a pest!

Yes, when its cold they love to cuddle, and cling. My wild cats and kittens will often cuddle together even the ones that do not get along when it get cold it for them is a natural survivor instinct my dogs were the same way...

I know what your going thru, Grandpa Bob. We have a approximately 6mo. old kitten whose always cold so constantly follows us around to try and cuddle up in our shirts or on us under a blanket to get warm/stay warm. Drives me up the wall cause I end up stepping on him all the time. Can't wait for warm weather only for that reason.

My Petie is my stocker! He follows me all around the house. I go to the bathroom, to the garage, to the office, to the kitchen. He is underfoot. He is 6lbs so I am afraid of steping on him.

Oh, that's kinda sweet. He loves you. I don't have any animals anymore other than a fish. But the kids I babysit do that to me sometimes. LOL Sometimes I have to get a break by going to the bathroom because they won't follow me in there. hehehe
