I’ve got a 55 pound German Shepherd puppy that loves to do the same thing. Fortunately my recliner is against the wall.Our Mr. Cooper (cat) almost did that to my wife one day.
She was laying back in the recliner and 18 pound him jumped onto the headrest from the floor.
She’s doing good. I’ll post some when I get a chance. She settled in and is now a full-fledged member of the family in her own mind. She’s definitely learned where the treat drawer and treat jar are located.How's she doing? I haven't seen any pictures lately.
