Several months ago Dragon started giving me a few swats with the belt every morning. Not hard enough to hurt. Just a few to start the day off right.
After his breakfast and before he put on his belt. He lifted the hem of my gown and a swung the belt gently. No pain.
By my mighty K9 protector decided that those swats were a bad thing. My mighty guard dog wouldn't let Dragon close to me. Soon I had two dogs standing guard every morning.
They are happy now. No more morning swats but I sure do miss them.
