(maggie @ 6am on monday morning...)
and i'm NOT!!!
in november i started allowing maggie to sleep with us. i was sure she was cold in her kennel, and she LOVES our down comforter and electric blanket. well, it's summer now (officially on saturday), and it's NOT too cold any more.
but, she is still sleeping with us.
actually, i think it is more like...
we are sleeping with HER!!!
(her HALF of the bed, of course, is the middle:/)
at 2 am this morning, she decided she was thirsty. she rolled from her normal position (spread eagle on her back), stretched, and proceeded to walk OVER john's chest to jump from his side of the bed to the floor.
the next thing i heard was her lapping water. evidently, while lapping she got water up her nose because she then started snorting. maggie is a king charles spaniel (spaniels are not natural "snorters"). next??? she had a sneezing fit.
the "poor thing" never could get situated after that. i wish i had the pictures to show you, but i don't think john would have much appreciated the flash going off while he was trying to sleep, lmao.
though, i can give you the visual: i have taken the down comforter out of our denim duvet; the duvet is still rather heavy. so when maggie lies down between us, the duvet pins us in place. i mean, without awakening and deliberately moving ourselves, we stay in ONE place "pins us".
HA!!! i opened my eyes at one point to her very loud snoring, unable to move and "noticed" her back paw about an inch from my face... i really thought about picking the darling up right then and moving her to her kennel.
i just honestly hated to wake her.
SHE IS SPOILED ROTTEN!!!
that's what is what is wrong with the BIG picture!!!
anyway, when john got up to go to work, she awoke, sat up, and looked at me... at which point i looked back at her and kindly told her she was going to sleep in HER bed tonight!!!
she cocked her head to the side (totally understanding my every word),
and went under the bed to pout. while pouting, she fell asleep...
hence, the picture at the beginning of my blog:)
she WILL sleep in her bed tonight!!!
(so long as she doesn't cry...)
love and blessings,
