keeps trying to sit on my lap. wouldn't matter but is large collie. never been allowed on the sofa or laps and never even tried (although i know he sleeps on the sofa when we're out but he always pretends he hasn't). is a bit strange - seems o.k apart from needing to be cuddled. is hairy.

Does he seem okay otherwise? It is odd if he never usually does it/ isn't allowed.

Might he have heard fireworks or something similar. They get going round where we are stupidly early in the year...

Otherwise, erm, he loves you very much and wants to show you ? grin

Perhaps there is thunder in distance and he is scared. Collies have very acute hearing.

Does he not normally do this?

My dog is weird too at the minute. DH thinks he's depressed.

he is affectionate but dosen't try to climb onto laps. he is at the moment tucked under my desk on my feet. weird but cute. and hairy

It sounds like something he heard freaked him out - thunder/fireworks/jets?

Ours has a total nightmare every time the smoke alarm beeps when the battery's low. You have to go hunt him out and he's usually cowering under a table sad

(I'm constantly covered in dog hair. I can't remember what is was like not to be!)
