I haven't been on in a while, but my baby Marley is acting very clingy towards me lately. It's not towards my fiance now, she has become more of a Mama's girl, and strangely getting clingy. She won't leave me side, and she follows me everywhere. Its not like her. I don't know what is going on in her mind? Anyone have any ideas? Or have ever had this happen to them?

Need more info? Change in schedule, new noises, reduction in exercise?
We haven't changed anything with her. I go to work, school, home. Thats my routine. Thats how its been for a while, and this just started a couple of days ago. She's on the floor now, but just a few seconds ago she was laying on my chest. The past few nights shes been laying on the bed between my legs trying to get as close to me as possible. I'm just very worried about her because I can't read her mind.
I was actually just talking to someone about that. I'd have to check. I can't get out now, its 9 oclock at night, so i'll have to check tomorrow. I kind of hope I'm not, I'm only 20. Haha. I"d be happy if I was. I don't know how dogs could sense that though.
There are some dogs who can smell cancer, or low blood sugar in their humans, so don't underestimate the intuitive powers of the dog ;)

How old is the pup? I've read that during puppyhood they can go through clingy phases (along with all the other myriad phases dogs go through in their first 1-2 years of life). If it's bothering you, the only thing I can think to do is start training Marley to have a "place," like a mat or a dog bed, and to go there on command and stay. It would take
time but you could get a little space that way. If you want it!
She's actually three years old.
