I didn’t stand a chance

Posted by laurie on November 17, 2011

I took Susan In DE’s advice last night and started off towards the middle of the bed. That helped a lot, thanks! The boys still glommed onto me, but I stayed a foot or so away from the edge. Phillip comes home today so tonight I’ll have that vast oasis of half a king-sized bed to myself. Sorry, dear!

    Laurie, you have to give credit to Sue K for that idea, not me … I was only commenting on stretchy hounds yesterday. :->

    I have to say, Laurie, that if my Gigi looked at me with such a sweet and pathetic look from the middle of the bed…I’d be the one immediately camping at the foot! He is such a sweetheart. Gigi, on the other hand, has revenge on me occassionally for pushing her to her side of the bed. She turns her butt towards me….well, you KNOW what that means.

      I dunno … when they’re smashed into bed with you, I think you’re probably better off with beagle butt/back turned toward you*, rather than their feet. There’s nothing like waking up in the middle of the night because someone is chasing rabbits up your back.

      *Okay, this is assuming that there is no gassy discharge going on … but then again, it doesn’t matter where the rump is pointed when that happens, because you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the fragrance anyway … There’s no escape, even in a king sized bed.

        * and assuming that your neighbour didn’t feed your beagles with lots of cantaloupe (it was banned after that gaseous bomb night)!

    Boy, do I remember those days….Bela’s gone 5 years now and I miss being pushed right out of bed just about every night. Not only did she hog the bed, but my pillow and HAD to be under the blankets too! Not good for hot flashes….I can tell you that! I only wish my little pint-sized Boris was a snuggle bunny; but he isn’t. He’ll come into bed with me, but the minute I move one toe, he jumps up, gives me a big huff and goes off to sleep in this cozy little crate. I guess being only 7 lbs. is kinda of freightening in the larger world. I really miss my beagle!
