Okay, my girl is SUPER friendly. Overly friendly, really. At 10 months she has an adult bark, so her "HI HI HI HI HI HI" greeting to everyone she sees does not necessarily result in her getting the attention she wants. It's a rare person that believes me when I tell them "She's just saying hi, come on over." Which is unfortunate, and I'm working on that one...
Related to that is how excited she gets when we come home. The best technique is to leave her kenneled for a couple of minutes so she gets used to seeing and hearing us before we let her out.
But then... I was out of town for a few weeks, just got home last night. When she saw me, she barked a few times like "Who is this guy in my house??" I did not mind that, because it was followed immediately by the realization that IT'S DADDY!!!
I sat down on the rug and she ran around and around me, licking, whining, licking, bopping her face into mine... It was super cute! Until I saw a drip of blood on my shirt. And then another. And then I felt something on my cheek. And I realized somehow in the cute licking and face bumping she must have nipped my cheek.
So. This is a new occurrence. I'm not really sure how to deal with it... I don't think the answer is "don't put my face by hers," but suddenly I'm hesitant.
I think I have a good line on "don't bark at people," but I'm open to suggestions on the affection-gone-too-far.
