Mel, I know of what you speak with the bleeding while making quick trips to the vet.s I suspect this is one reason Cameron has Labs instead of cats.
It has been my experience that dogs mostly enjoy the attention and will for the most part accept anything as long as it feels good and includes treats. It cracks me up when I see some of the clothing that people put on their dogs for special events. Just try that with a cat.
The way I read things on Cameron's posts is that those dogs have him wrapped around their paws and they know it. That is, until he brings home a new ball, chew toy or squeaky toy of course.
