Never happy. Always a good show.
Would love to see a video of that!
I was surprised that Sanji would bear his teeth so much and do that Basenji nostril-snarl sound (is there a name for that?) when tired and didn't want me to pick him up or touch his feet.
But just to test the waters, I proceeded to see if he'd actually bite hard. He didn't. He did grab my hand firmly in his mouth for a second or two, just to say "I don't like that thank you."
My response was to be nice and say, "OK, I get it. You don't like that. OK, you're a good boy anyway, and I'm not mad at you for communicating" and I pet him gently. That really helped our rapport. Built more trust.
