I keep reading how these little dogs shouldn't jump off of furniture and such. Can hurt themselves. My little Lacey is such a tomboy. She leaps and flies through the air like she is superman. No problems with her jumping off of the bed or couch/chair and running. Her favorite thing to do is racetrack around the house, jump on the couch, run the length of the couch, jump off, run to the bedroom, jump on the bed, run around on top of the bed and then jump off and start again. Imagine all four legs spread out like she is trying to fly when she jumps. Should I try to curb this? She isn't a little maltese. She weighs 7 pounds and is very sturdy. No fear in her at all. I don't want her to hurt herself. She has a stool to jump on to get on and off the bed and she does use this when she isn't racetracking. I am just curious if anyone elses dog isn't a delicate little lap dog like my Lacey isn't. Oh and the vet did check her legs and knees when I have had her in for regular vet checkups and says her knees feel great. No popping or slipping she could feel using her hands. I keep telling Lacey she is suppose to be my little princess and she isn't suppose to be a tomboy, but she just doesn't listen to me...go figure!
