Brut has always tolerated being cuddled for about a minute or two. Being the independent alpha dog, he just can't bring himself to do it. He always had that look that said, ah, that's enough.
This past year as he has gotten older and his agression and dominance are in check, I have begun to notice a difference. He is craving our touch. He wants to cuddle and he doesn't mind us falling over him. He has become more affectionate than he has ever been.
Brut has always been loveable and playful. He loves attention and getting petted, but anything that involved more closeness would make him take off after a couple of mintues. When he would be lying on bed, I would give him a quick belly rub, until I would get "the look." Now we can cuddle and share our affection. I am so amazed at how soft his fur is because he would never let me pet him long enough to remember. Now he can't get enough and he is eating it up.
Brut is happier than he has ever been. The transformations I have witness with him has completely blown me away. The dog that wanted to terrorize the world is letting the sweet, loveable creature in him show what an incredible dog he is. For the first three years of his life, I never would have believe that with his aggression and domainace we would ever reach any level of happiness and peace. Brut will always be Brut, but I love this softer, beautiful side he is showing. What the miracles of love can do.
