    Rosie likes kids she likes everybody humans and dogs. Ebony never liked kids from when she was a puppy, she is a better now she is a bit older. Harley don't like kids I think with Harley & Ebony they don't like the sudden movements kids make.
    Harley sleeps on top of me but not the girls.
    All three don't get picked up as they are to heavy.

    1. I think Skippy 'likes' them, but he definitely has more fun with grown ups.

    2. I don't know how much he actually enjoys it since he's not allowed on our furniture so I have to carry him up to me, but we often have naps like that, warming each other up!

    3. I don't think he enjoys the actual 'act' of being picked up, as I often hear a little 'grunt' as we lift him up, but he definitely likes being 'higher up' so he as a better view of what's going on.

    1. Jessie seems to have eyes, more so, for females. Any woman that pays him attention, he will drop at her feet and
    roll over on to his back. We call him our ladies man. He loves kids, but also needs his own quiet space as well once he's tired,
    and kids being kids, still want to play.

    2. He won't sleep ON us, but wants to sleep next to us as close as possible, especially on the couch when he's napping.

    3. He likes being picked up, on his own terms. If I'm trying to pick him up, so someone can come in the front door, he'll jump back and
    bounce around, often growling and barking at me. He's getting a bit too heavy to keep picking up, he's over 6kgs (over 13 pounds)
    and he's only 17 weeks.

    1) Sonny loves anyone who will give him love including kids. He always seems sad when people don't give him a little pat or attention and just pass by during walks.

    2) Sonny sleeps in his crate at night, but during the morning, day or evening he always wants to be on top of us when he is napping on the couch. He curls up and gets as close as possible. (Also anyone's lap will do, he definitely doesn't have any loyalty to just me or my husband, he just wants to be close!!!! LOL)

    3) Sonny also grunts when being picked up. I think it is the cutest little noise. I'm not sure if he likes being picked up or not. He doesn't seem to mind..... And when he has been in his crate for awhile when you first let him out he practically jumps into your arms for kisses and basically forces you to pick him up. So sweet. But he also is getting bigger! He is 5 and 1/2 months and weighs about 13.5 lbs, so I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be able to pick him up. I carried him around Petsmart today because I still get worried about him in there with all of the doggy germs even though he is vaccinated and my arms were SO tired after we left!

    1. Piper does seem to really enjoy being around children. She was introduced to them at a young age so she does really well with them and gets really excited when she sees them.

    2. Piper has a mind of her own and sometimes she is all over me and sometimes she wants nothing to do with cuddling. Figures!

    3. Piper grunts too when I pick her up! That is so funny. I don't think she necessarily enjoys being carried around but she doesn't squirm if I hold her for long periods of time.

    1. Guinness doesn't like when kids pet him, but he'll play fetch with them. Thistle loves children because they are low to the ground, and always have food.

    2. Guinness cuddles up right next to me, but never on top. Thistle climbs on top of both me and Guinness.

    3. Not really. If something upsetting happens (fireworks, fire alarm, etc) Thistle will demand to be picked up. Guinness almost never.

    Does your cavalier love kids? Unfortunately, not really. She LOVES babies up to about 1 1/2 and kids over the age of 10, but anything in between she is just a bit scared of. I think it is their movements and being so quick. If I am there to monitor, I just ask the kid to kneel down and put their hand out to let her sniff them only. Brooky will do that, and give a few licks, but she doesnt like it they suddenly go for her head. We don't know why, but we are trying to just help her adjust slowly
    Does yoir cavalier like to lie/sleep in top of you? Oh yeah. The close the better. I always say she is just trying to get as close as she can to my heart
    Does your cavalier like to be picked up? Oh she does that grunt too! It is so funny. But she likes it I think. She cuddles on in like a baby, it is pretty funny. But we don't pick her up too often.

    Does your cavalier love kids?
    Oh yes! All of them! He loves toddlers too. even though they can be rough he just sits there and licks them all over.
    He often follows them around.

    Does your cavalier like to lie/sleep in top of you?
    Yes he does, but it gets quite hot uo here. So he often moves after a little bit. In the winter it is a different matter

    Does your cavalier like to be picked up?
    Yes, he talks to you when you pick him up. These cute little growling sounds. It's adorable.

    1. Unfortunately, no. Neither of my dogs do. They're really nervous about being around kids, especially if they're noisy or darting around. They both tend to bark at the kids. Lyra hasn't been around kids much though, I don't have any friends with kids... nor do I like them, hahaha, so I guess the dogs take after me!

    2. Nope, she isn't a huge cuddler. She likes following me around and being near me, but she doesn't sleep on me, ever.

    3. She's neutral about being picked up. She doesn't mind it, but she doesn't asked to be picked up either. However, she absolutely does NOT like strangers picking her up or petting her. She isn't a very huge fan of strangers--she gets nervous around them. After she gets to know someone well though, she doesn't mind them picking her up.
