Because, really, why wouldn't your dog sidle up to you when you're down on her level? Why shouldn't she attempt to crawl in your lap, for a lengthy nuzzle or scritch, now that you're fully on the floor?

There's a way to, though, to make mat time, and a happt hour of stretches and serenity, all about the furry friend kindly asking for your attention while you're down at their eye level.
