Re: People grabbing at the FACE and RUFF!
Grimm at 16 months old and very puppy-like, mirrors your enegry level exactly. If someone rushes up and GRABS his face-fluffs, going "Booga-booga, cuuuute puppy!!" Grimm will respond in kind-- exact same energy level, and with jumbo puppy enthusiasm, he will grab the person, too, just as firmly, and yes-- ALL IN FUN. But who cares if it's "all in fun" if they have bruises? Grimm loves everyone, hasn't a mean bone in his body-- his intentions are always friendly... but at his age, he gives what he gets, and is very enthusiastic.
There is one man living here who (grrrrr) encourages Grimm to JUMP. I have to work hard to communicate with this well-meaning man that I do NOT permit that. Ever. Dealing with other people is truly difficult sometimes!
