if there is should a thing as claiming, so what. i love when my dog
sits on my feet, jumps on the bed with us, lays beside the sofa when
both of us are taking up all of the room on the sofa, jumps on the sofa
with us, claiming is a good thing in my opinion. i claim my dog. why
shouldn't he claim me or us? claiming, i think that's a part of bonding.
