So just how needy is Cheddar? Well, let’s allow his mother to explain. “He is very, very, very needy,” Shelley Vassall, Cheddar’s mom, told The Dodo. “He cannot be alone.”

13. All The Attention

All Cheddar wants is to have all attention on him — once you start petting him and then stop, he will either bump your arm with his head or tap his paw telling you to continue. He would have you sit for hours if he could, just petting him.”

12. Friendly

Cheddar is also a very friendly dog in general and doesn’t withhold his friendship. He’ll be friends with just about anybody that gives him non-stop attention. However, one day he finally met someone whose friendship he favored above all else.

One day, Cheddar was on a walk with his mom when they passed by the elderly couple that lives next door. It must have been love at first sight because Cheddar was instantly smitten by the woman, Jean.

The pair interacted for a bit and they clicked right away. Cheddar was in love and from that moment on he couldn’t go another day without seeing Jean. So now the pair have a very interesting ritual.

From that moment Cheddar knew he couldn’t live without Jean. So every day Cheddar begs and forces his mom to walk him over to the neighbor’s house.

8. Every Day

We try and go there every day if we can,” Vassall said. “They live around the corner and one street over from us. When it’s been more than a few days and we haven’t seen her, Cheddar is particularly vocal when we visit next.”

7. Sassy

He knows exactly what street they are on and in fact, even if we don’t head there, he insists on it by pulling on the leash and trying to turn in that direction. If we pass the house with no intention of going in, he plants himself with full body weight on one spot and stands there until you relent.”

6. Special Connection

It is obvious that Jean and Cheddar have a very special connection. Cheddar loves to go over there and Jean will often have a plate of cookies waiting for him.

5. True Happiness

When he sees her, his reaction is one that very few get,” Vassall said. It is obvious that seeing Jean brings Cheddar an unparalleled happiness. He just can’t get enough love and attention from his neighbor.

4. Talkative

Cheddar is not a barker but he certainly talks a plenty when he’s really, really happy or excited. When visiting in winter, we spend the time indoors and Cheddar just wants to sit by Jean’s side and be petted.” It seems that all Cheddar wants is Jean’s attention!

3. More Attention

That’s ALL he wants. In better weather — spring, summer and fall — we spend the time in their backyard where he loves to roll in the grass with his leash or a tennis ball and then sit next to Jean for more attention.”

2. Looking Forward

Each day, Cheddar wakes up enthusiastic to see Jean. Seeing Jean is often the highlight of his day and the happiness on his face is a testament to that.
