Kessel loves to just lay by your feet. She likes being petted but she seems to prefer just being by you rather than cuddled. A good thing since I expect her to be at least thirty pounds grown and could easily be bigger. Being she's a crossbred I'm just going with between thirty pounds and 100 pounds, more likely in the 30-50 range since she's not a huge puppy. I love that she wants to lay by me. Just talking about my puppy.
