Dogs all seem to have their own special way to request (or demand) a petting from their owners. My no-nonsense miniature schnauzer would push his bearded snout under my hand, while my current pup, an American Eskimo/Jack Russell mix, looks into my eyes and whimpers eerily, as though she’s talking to me.

There are few things more relaxing and pleasant than petting your dog’s soft fur, but sometimes life gets in the way or something distracts us from what really matters. But our pets aren’t shy about telling us what they want, and it can be nice to take a break. Is that T.V. show really more entertaining or important than giving your pet the attention he craves?
