Well, most people don't have their daily allotment of black dog hair, anyway. He's performing a service!
I think Barkley is saying "I'll share this bed, Mom. Really!"Vic303
LOL! Go Barkley!
Shhh, im testing it. It could be haunted, or booby trapped. A couple more weeks here,and ill know for sure.
HAHAHAHAHAI must confess that sometimes I root for Barkley (mea culpa, mea magna culpa). Our own Ivan the Terrier is probably even older that Barkley, and I find that I increasingly let him up on the bed. But you know how sentimental I am ...
"But Mom, this bed is more my size."
In my new digs, the quadrupeds (3 dogs/1 cat) are not allowed bedroom access!Unless 'the PetMom' lets them in, 'cause she's a softy!The Cat got in my room last week, and it almost took a counterinsurgency team to extricate her - fortunately, she didn't take up residence.They love me, anyway...gfa
Maybe he is just warming it up for you
LOL! Murphy pulls that stunt, but only when I'm not home.
"Are YOU talkin' to ME?!?!?!?!? Are YYYYOOOOOUUUUUUU talkin' to MEEEEE?!?!?!?!?"So this is the "dog's life" eh?? Wow!
Barkley is checking the firmness of the mattress prior to your company's arrival, to see that it meets certain standards of your household.
If Barkley could speak, he might say,"But Ma, the bed on the floor looks really lumpy.Where's the dog? I don't see any dog. I'm a person in disguise. Just ignore all those dog-like habits such as licking disgusting things and walking on four legs."
That's a "first dibs" look if I ever saw one.....with a tinge of "a-ha" in it, too.....
"Futon isn't in my vocabulary"..."But Mooommmmmmmm!"Dann in Ohio
Me too, I am graciously allowed on my bed by two large dogs and one reigning cat. Sometimes, I even get to use a pillow.Selene
One of my favorite canine magic tricks: A quick turn of your head and - VOILA! - a people-bed has magically become a pet bed with the wag of a tail. Unfortunately, this trick only seems to work people-to-pet and not back the other way :D
