I am puzzled and a bit jealous about this. Spunky Doodle never sits on my lap nice like this. He's not even holding her (maybe that's the secret). Spunky will sit by a window, lay in the sun and even join me on the bed and let me pet her up nice; however, she doesn't sit or lay on my lap. Manny Boy will, but not Spunky Doodle.
Manny loves to come up on my lap, especially if I'm reading!
