SLCS-I have been told this a few times, but it is so hard for me. I *LOVE* giving my minis treats. In fact, I give them pieces of apple or carrot AT LEAST once a day...sometimes twice. And I give it right from my hand. Now, I cannot say my minis ever nip at me, but they do seem like they only walk up to me, sniff my hand for a treat, and then walk away. Whereas some of my friends have minis that just want to hang out and enjoy their owners company. I guess minis are like kids, you just should not spoil them, huh?
