My chihuahua Sam, always checks on me whenever I am sleeping in our couch. She just stands in the side and takes a good look at me and then goes back to her blanket. Sometimes I pretend to be sleeping just to see what she's doing but she just stares at me. Lol. I really think she's watching over me. I think that's her way of showing her love to me. :)

My White Shepherd always stay at my (or someone in the house) side, even when i go to bathroom she stay at the door waiting me leaves. She never stay alone and never let anyone in the house alone. :)

Hi rkamurugy: This happends with my dog and my mommy. He never leaves my jmom alone. I think this is probably because my dog has been always with my mom. My mom is always in the house so my dog can't live without her. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO.

My cody and I have been together for now 11 years and he still follows me in every room laying down near my feet all the time. In fact there are times I will play with him hiding from him and he runs around the house looking for me. Its the funniest thing ever. He also protect me by barking each and everytime someone comes to the door. This is his way I think he shows me that he loves me.

That is her way of telling you to get out of the couch and play with her. :) But that is real cute of her.

when I come down the stairs my rats climb up the side of their cage towards the sound of me coming down stairs. which is very cute, coming into the room to the sight of two sets of four paws, and two ratty tummies.

I have always had big dogs, so they are outside dogs. But Lola, not only wags her tail when she sees me, but thinks she must perform a circus act to get mt attention. She walks on her hind legs, jumps over me, licks my hands (she knows I don´t like face licking) and prefers to be cuddled even when I´m bringing her food and she´s hungry. I have to remind her its time to eat or else she wouldn´t let go of me.

I have a 5 year old Golden Retriever named Emma Sue. She follows me all over the house. When I get home from work every day, she won't let me into the living room until I give her attention. I can tell she loves me very much. When I lay on my couch, she will also sit by my side and look at me a lot. I know she is protecting me. When I go to bed at night, she lays by the door of my bedroom to protect me also. I would be lost without her! She is my baby, and my child!

Hi santosmarichris We had a dog called tommy which was very cute it jumps over me when I return home from the office and it will not leave me to go anywhere because it wants to play with me and I used to feel very happy and felt that how much it loves me and it does the same thing even with my parents,I feel animals cannot speak so they show their love in actions. You are right your pet too is showing its love towards you by watching you.

we have 8 dogs at home but my favorite is shandi. i don't actually know what her breed is but i love her so much. and i think i'm her favorite too. :) when i don't go home and stay somewhere for the night, when i get back the next day, my mom would tell me that shandi's up all night, guarding my bedroom door, waiting for me to come out and give her her nightly hug. she's pretty jealous too. when our other dogs get my attention first, she won't come to me unless i tell her i'm sorry. i don't know if she actually understands it, but whenever someone else would go to me first, she just walks away. we find this very amusing. :)

My dog Bern always gets excited whenever I reach our home from work or anywhere. He's jumps at me and stand at me and he barks while he's tail is waggling, it will take for like 1-3 mins. before he stops. He always wait for me outside the comfort room, he will just lay there waiting for me to get out, I think his guarding me. Whenever I go he will follow me,he makes sure we're on the same room. He sleeps with me in my room but he stays underneath the bed.

I know mine loves me because my dog "princess" always greets me when i arrive home and runs around to play with me but im pretty confused, i think she is a dog that is easily frightened. Whenever shes doing something and not giving me attention, the moment i touch her suddenly, she squeals. and she actually runs away from us when we have a visitor or when im holding something and i swing or lift it up. I just do not know what to do with my cowardly dog, been pretty hard to play with her when she becomes stiff when you touch her after she wags her tail looking at you, lol. i just leave her alone nowaways and keep and eye on her.

well,if they like being close to you alot or everytime ur around, then i believe that is a definite sign of affection towards their owner

well, it depends on the animal one has. each animal has a different way of expressing themselves and well, as an owner,master or mistress, you have to take time to know ur animal. Spending time with the animal of course will be the best way of getting to know how they respond to different things, their emotions and also their likes and dislikes. but if its one thing i came to find common in all animals, it was the fact that if they like someone, they all seem to react in an excited manner, usually by making some noises. Lack of response from an animal usually shows indifference or lack of closeness to the person.

my dog pet always greet me and my kids every time we arrive, then my cat would circle around my feet and would curl there. if there are some arguments at home, they would hide but after they would come and brush their body on our legs.
