I've thought many times that the dogs are like warm fuzzy pillows with legs. They didn't originally sleep with me, but back when it was just Watson and Miss Peaches my daughter was away for the weekend Peach slept next to me because she always slept with Marlena. Then I'm not quite sure the series of events , but now I have our three miniatures sleeping cuddled up next to me. In a good way they make me think of an extended stay I had at the hospital 4 years ago. I was mostly paralyzed (temporarily). At night in an effort to make me as comfortable as possible the nurses would prop me up an stuff pillows on both sides of my body. That, along with a lot of drugs would get me through the night. Nowadays the dogs are warm fuzzy self-stuffing pillows. They are also self-adjusting, roll over and they reposition themselves. Fortunately none of these guys snore. Fooze will occasionally have a dream that will make him twitch and make this "whoop, whoop whoop" sound. A quick nudge fixes that. Plus if you wake from a bad dream there is quick access to a live "teddydog"to get back to sleep. Now, no matter the weather every night is a three dog night.
Just discovered this blog :) as the mommy of a 14-week smooth haired standard dachshund, I'm loving these pictures! My Ginny does the 'whoop whoop whoop' thing in her sleep too, glad to know other dogs do it too. It's actually kind of cute.ReplyDelete
