Hungry Snuggle

I read somewhere that dogs like it when you stick to a schedule, that they feel more secure when you impose routine into their lives. Arthur's dinner time is 6pm, and part of his schedule is to start bugging me around 5 or 5:30 with what I call the "hungry snuggle." That means, if I'm sitting on the sofa, he'll get right next to me and lean his whole body against mine; if I'm in a chair, he'll crawl into my lap (all 50 lbs of him); and if he can't manage either of those things, he'll put his muzzle on my thigh and stare at me until I crack.
