Absolutely! Shelby really is not a snuggler at all and hardly ever will sit with us. However when we visit the nursing home she knows immediately which residents are ill and need some TLC. She will sit with them and let they hug and pet her. She will let us snuggle her if we are feeling sad, and she will come running if we are sick.

When my grandmother was in hospice she absolutely loved when we brought Shelby to visit. Towards the end my gram would wake just enough to say hello and then go right back to sleep. The last visit with Shelby was just like that but all my gram wanted was to hold and pet her. I let Shelby in bed with her and Shelby just laid there and let my gram hold on to her for the longest time while she slept. Shelby never does that with us. Somehow she knew this is was my gram needed.

She is the same way with kids. And Hollie also was very in tune to everyone's feelings.

Wow, you all have wonderful dogs. Mercy, when I am sick, mine could care less, they leave me and stay with Steve more than ever, really hurts my feelings.

My dog doesn't seem to care. Last time I was sick, I spotted her on the other side of the house, running across the room with my sandal in her mouth. Two minutes later she ran off with the other sandal. A few minutes after that she finally checked in on me... or so I thought... she actually brought me a tennis ball and barked at me to play fetch. It was just a normal day to her. I laugh it off. She's just a dog. My job is to take care of her, not the other way around. However, my first sheltie was more comforting. When I was teen and was upset over some boy, a friend or some trivial event, she would always jump on my bed and be my shoulder to cry on.

Don had a brain tumor back in 2007. The tumor was located behind his right eye. Even before the MRI's or anything, when Don would go and lie down Mally would jump up on the bed and lick Don's right eye. It's like Mally knew something was not right before the doctor's did!

ps Don's tumor was not malignant and was able to have it surgically removed.

Glad to hear Don is OK! I find it amazing how some dogs can sense these things. My Uncle's Rotweiler instinctively knew when his blood sugar was low. He couldn't figure out why she was nudging him and whining. After a few times of this happening he realized she was able to sense his sugar was low and she was telling him.

This is so fascinating to me.
