What a bed hog!

Navah, has had a cold for the last few days and I have been feeling really bad for her. For two nights in a row she has been yelping in her crate to get out. I’m not sure how doggy colds work but I know my joints get sore so I was hoping that’s not what she had since she has no bed in there, just cold and hard plastic.

Last night I was feeling bad so I convinced my wonderful and amazing boyfriend to let her on the bed. We cleared the room of everything she could be bad with and pretty much barricaded the door (I don’t trust her as far as I can throw her).

To say she enjoyed her time on the bed is an understatement! Somehow she managed to take up the whole bottom half of the bed and the entire width. My boyfriend and I spent the whole night in the fetal position. Periodically through the night I would hear my boyfriend grumble or sigh in irritation and say “stupid dog!” My poor other dog who usually sleeps under the covers at my boyfriends feet had a tiny little corner on my boyfriend’s pillow with his legs hanging off the bed.

For once in the last few days she had a nice, heavy, comfortable sleep and slept throughout the night. I just hope she gets better soon or I’m going to be stiff jointed every morning! lol

Babsy gets to the bed first and think it is hers. It is a double bed. It SHOULD fit me and one 65 pound GSD Bitch.

She starts by laying herself draped across BOTH pillows on the top of the bed. If I move her so that she is vertical and on one side of the bed, I get in, and she flips over so that her BUTT is up by my head!!! GSDs are smart AND EVIL! She KNOWS exactly what she is doing and it is a statement of her displeasure!

So, I try to get in and tell her to MOVE! She will get off, come back up and give me BUTT.

So I get in and use HER as a pillow. She tends to get sick of that and travels to the bottom of the bed.

Sometimes I just push her over just enough to get into the bed, with my neck crooked and desperately hanging on to my corner of one of the pillows -- that is what she likes best. If I move I will fall out of the bed.

I hear her snuffling over there choking sobs of laughter off so that I am not 100% sure that she is.

Oh and the moment I have my little piece of real estate gained so I can sleep, I have to get up and use the facilities. While I am in there, she regains the rest of the pillow.

It is amazing I get any sleep at home.
