    Comparing my three dogs made me think. For Tabby, the most important thing in her life is Comfort (which includes Food). For Rocky, the most important thing is Love (giving and receiving). For Maxey, the most important thing is Everything! He has absolute enthusiasm for whatever he encounters - toys, dinner, walks, people, other dogs, an interesting blade of grass. We've never had three such different dogs, with such different drives. What do your dogs rate most important?

    My 3?

    Shona just has to have her snuggles with Mom, no-one else is good enough.

    Rizzle just want to play, play and play some more.

    Karnie just wants to snuggle under his blankie and ignore the world LOL

    Hector is food, followed by squeaky toys and being warm and comfy, and love, Hilde is all about the love and cuddles but loves her walks, running around sniffing and digging and sniffing.

    Fly - foooooooooooooooooooooood. Food, food food food.

    Puzzle - attention, or toys

    Nooka - far too complicated to know what her raison d'etre is

    With Jack, it’s me and my bed :)

    If I’m in, he’s with me.

    If I’m out, he’s on my bed.

    Bedtime, it’s a race to my bed for the best spot! :D

    adam- mum/people
    hannah- mum/small furry things
    heidi-mum/food
    alfie-mum/mum


    They are all pretty much driven by getting as much attention and cuddles from me as possible!:D Although I did put a '/' just to show their secondary interests in life!;)
