I don't really do the whole dog on the bed thing. I like my bed. I like to stretch out and relax without random bumps in the way.
So I've provided them with nice, comfy beds of their own - Memory foam, fleece and the like. They're so nice I'd like to sleep on their beds sometimes.
But in November I was gone for a week and my sister dog sat for me. She's great with them - they can stay home, they get plenty of exercise and everyone stays happy. It's perfect. Except for the fact that she lets the dogs on the bed. I think they know a sucker when they see one.
Ever since I've gotten back, instead of going over and curling up on his own bed at night, Kipp comes and stares at me, asking to be let up on my bed.
If I leave the room, he's started to take advantage of the situation. I'll come back to this -
Not only is he on the bed, but he refuses to look at me because hey, if I don't see him, I can't tell him to get off the bed. And more often than not, I don't have the heart to tell him to get off. Guess I'm a sucker too...
