Girls, is this bonus points? Not for me. Bonus points to me are based on how beneficial you are to me. Connecting well with my dog Ian't a benefit to me as he likely won't be around long enough or involved enough for it to matter.
yeah. Mine gets on well with my partner although its for me, he gives me that look of 'look mum I am being nice to him for you because I love you'
However its more when a man makes an effort with my dog. I went for a walk once with a guy who at the beginning called me over protective with my dog. By the end of our walk he was keeping an eye on him too :)
