I, like many of my animal-loving friends, let my dogs sleep on my bed. Not only do they sleep on my bed, they're often under the cover. Or on the pillow. And, it's not unusual for there to be no room for me... They take up all the space: I'm sure it's scientifically proven that dogs will expand to the area given. Like water freezing in a bottle.
|Her favorite spot!|
When I was a kid, the dogs weren't allowed on beds or any other furniture. Actually, I was lucky to have a dog! My mother was a clean freak who never had pets in her life and you could eat off of her floor. This is a true statement.
|Maaaaaa, I don't wanna go to school...|
Thankfully, she was tempered by my father who was a huge animal lover and grew up with all sorts of pets, from dogs to goats to horses. As a matter of fact, my parents had horses when they first got married, and my father even competed in shows. (I'm so sorry I wasn't around then - I love horses. They're just big dogs to me, and yeah, they probably would sleep on my bed if I could pull it off!)
But I digress.
As a kid, I would yearn to have my Heidi on the bed with me! Such a wonderful girl, so loving, so loyal, so undeserving of the floor...
