This was one of three German Sheppards and a Labrador mix that were at the house we were staying at. This dog, named Abe, is a big baby, in more ways than one. He is considered to be too big for the bred, but he would demanded the most attention. So, since I was sleeping on the couch at night and he roaming around the house, I got a wet nose in the face or a bark in my ear at least once each night. I guess he was seeing if I was awake or not, which I was after that happened. During the day, he just followed me around.
