Musical Beds

Snoozing - LM

Snoozing – LM

My crazy dogs play musical beds at night.

I came into the kitchen at 3 am this morning, to find Mr Spaghetti Leg’s two mattresses strewn separately on the floor by the door – but no dog sleeping on them. I looked over to Little Monkey’s bed and there she was, curled up into a tiny ball, lying on the crumpled up bottom mattress right by the fridge.

And next to her, so close that their bums touched, was Mr SL on the top mattress!

This is what they do – and they have the whole kitchen to sleep in!

      it is everyone’s own choice where their pets sleep ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m happy to have mine in the kitchen and not waking me up ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially if they are throwing their beds about ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can understand not wanting to share a bed with the animals; I personally would not like to since I’m allergic. It must take some training to keep them from visiting your bed?

    In a Aunt’s house though – this Auntie who owns four dogs, four cats and fosters animals – Her bed is a battleground sometimes where the humans end up curled into themselves.

      Yes it does take training, and consistency, but I am the leader of this pack, and they respect my boundaries! I leave the passage door open and they do not pass the invisible line ๐Ÿ™‚ Ditto with the allergies also ๐Ÿ™‚

    My son’s dog sleeps with him and his wife. Their house, their choice. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It used to be a cute tiny puppy. Now it is almost a full grown golden retriever. I would say it’s about time ……….

      There speaks someone who does not have a dog with “startle response”. There’s nothing quite like disturbing Ray while he is asleep! This 75lb snoring dog suddenly becomes a barking snapping nightmare. It took me two events to catch onto what not to do when Ray is asleep! He is most certainly not going to sleep on anybody’s bed.

        Oh, the little one (Annie is a Maltese Shih Tzu mix) does not believe she is only 8.5 pounds. She indeed has a very keen startle response and her bark far outweighs her , well, weight.

        We did have a shepherd years ago and he did not sleep on the bed. He CHOSE to sleep between the bed and the door. His protection job did not end at bedtime. But life and times change and now it’s the bed for Annie. She is generous though and allows us to sleep there also.

      Mr SL is the only dog I’ve had who “makes” his bed to this extent! The other 5 just rearranged the top cover a little, then slept ๐Ÿ™‚ I can imagine the size of bed Ray needs!

        The trouble (?) with Ray is that he can be very compact when all curled up, but he can also take over the complete two-seater sofa when he stretches out. Almost magical!

      This is an old photo, where I think she was “claiming” the bed out airing on the stoep ๐Ÿ™‚ She Loves the hot weather! About the only one who does!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        In my life before Hubby, my two dogs slept in the kitchen and weren’t allowed upstairs.
        In my Hubby life, our first dog slept at the bottom of the stairs until we moved into the bungalow nd then he slept in his bed in the lounge, but Maggie won in the cutability stakes and Hubby made the mistake of JUST ONCE inviting her up on the bed, and well, the rest is history. ๐Ÿ˜›
