i don't know if it is the fact that i am pregnant or not, but since brutus has turned three he is not as active as he used to be. oh sure we have the occasional burns, and he becomes a live wire if you want to wrestle with him. but most of the day he just sleeps away. he never really was a cuddlebug, but here lately wherever mommy is, so is brutus, either with his head on my belly or all sprawled out expecting me to rub his belly. so, i think this is normal? do they start to calm down after three, i also must add he is much more behaved here lately. so i am not complaining, i just sometimes miss the pup in him.
