Marnie was extremely affectionate from the start. When I met her at NEAS, she would not let me stop petting her, so I knew we would be fast friends. As she has grown more comfortable in her forever home, she has become affectionate above and beyond what I thought possible. She is always receptive to pets, hugs, and even belly rubs (ok maybe only sometimes). Our nightly routine when I am going to bed is that she will curl up next to me and “encourage” me with her paws to put my arm around her. I am so thankful to have met Marnie and I look forward to many priceless years ahead. Thank you NEAS!
