I'm not sure if this kid really wants the dog to stay or go, but I think he wants him to stay, and the dog really wants to be there with him. And it's so very sweet and I love them both. The dog is so gentle in his pursuit of cuddles, too! My own dog would've already knocked the boy over and started humping away, but that's how she shows affection. Don't worry, she's in training. (She's only knocked over and humped her trainer twice. Progress!)
