What a great thread! I am a little embarrassed to tell you that Lola has been growling at me, and I really don't take it serious, we have been laughing at her cuz she is so tiny and it looks so funny cuz she is so not mean what so ever. But, Lola growls when I put her in the kennel at night. She cries and then she growls. Me and Hubby lay there and giggle. (she is right next to my bed) We ignore her. I just started the laying at the back thing too, and that really works when needed.
