I love this forum! Just when you think you've got the craziest dog on the planet, you come here and are reminded that no, we have a basset. Last night was classic- the hubs tried to move Fergus so they could spoon and that lasted about 10 minutes. Fergus got off the couch and started barking at my husband. As soon as my husband got up, guess who stole the couch and laid out fully again? It was like he said, "no, I don't want to share."We don't allow bassets on the sofa. Bassets allow us on the sofa.
Love it! These "rules" follow the same pattern in our house...Oh how the rules change: 1. She has to ride in her kennel at all times in the car. Now she stands up in the front seat until her heated seat warms up. 2. No dogs in the bedroom. How did her bed end up at the foot of the bed? 3. No dogs in bed. 3.5 No dogs in bed unless were on vacation. 4. No dogs on furniture. 4.5 No dogs on furniture unless they just had a bath, ask nicely, or are just too cute. 5. No people food. 5.5 No people food unless it "falls from the heavens." 5.75 Cheese & Peanut Butter are OK. Why does the dog come running when the rice cooker clicks off?
