One particular advantage small dogs have over their larger counterparts is the ability to sit on their owner’s lap.
Just lately, Daisy has taken to having a snooze on my lap as I work on the computer at my desk during the day. She hardly weighs more than a bag of sugar, so I often forget she’s there and there have been the odd time when I’ve decided to get up for something and nearly tipped her onto the floor!
Luckily, being a dog with the usual amount of sixth sense, Daisy lets me know a split second before I start to rise from my chair, so although the momentum takes me to a half standing point before my own reflexes kick in, I manage to catch her before she tumbles!
Let that be a warning to owners of Great Danes! You wouldn’t want to tip one of those off your lap in a hurry!
