My dog's been acting clingy on and off during the last month.
I am gone for an extent of time during the day but not anything excessive.
He usually sleeps at the foot of the bed. He'll stay there for awhile and then he'll start making his rounds. He'll come up to the pillow and plant himself there; I will try to get him to move and he won't budge.
Then he'll get up, stand up and just do nothing. Most of the time he stands on me.
Then he moves to the other side of the bed, then down to the foot and then back up to the pillow on my left.
I can't get him to budge; he will just stay where he is. If I get up and get out of bed, he'll go with me wherever I am and then return to the bed and start the same mess all over again.
His vision isn't that great, either --- he is now 12 years of age. Plus he has always been stubborn.
He'll also spend some time wandering the house during the night. Then he'll return to the bed.
He stopped doing this about 2 weeks ago and now he's started it again and the problem's gotten worse.
