We don't really have internal doors in this house. There's one to the bathroom (thank goodness), and another going from the house to my studio. But that's it.
This means that we have no means of stopping the dogs leaving their comfy 'rest-a-while' chew-proof black plastic beds, and settling down for the night in the sitting room; which they are perfectly welcome to do.
However, they are banned from sleeping on the sofas at night (or any time), so I always put chairs on them before I go to bed.
Bok couldn't care less. Even if he has to sleep with chair legs up his 'Whitehall farce', he will do so just to be awkward.
This is how I found him this morning; he was still half asleep.
..... and don't you stick your tongue out at me, you Monkey!
Bok probably thinks that if Teddy is allowed on the sofa, then so is he!ReplyDelete
Wouldn't it be easier all round just to give in and leave the chairs on the floor?ReplyDelete
I'm not showing Toby Too this photograph - he's been up to enough mischief this week. Bok is so like my old Toby - except old Toby didn't eat beret's!ReplyDelete
Don't fight a war you know you won't win :)ReplyDelete
We can all see who rules the roost !ReplyDelete
You have to admire his persistance.ReplyDelete
Recently he even threw the chair off the sofa.Delete
He looks as though he's been in a bar-room brawl.ReplyDelete
I'll check the Armagnac bottle.Delete
Why don't you give up.ReplyDelete
We had 2 labs and tried elaborate ways to prevent from couch napping......tin foil, bubble wrap, piles of books, seat cushions pulled up vertically to form walls....and every time we came home, the boobey traps were a mess, there were 2 dogs on the floor and a warm spot on the sofa.ReplyDelete
Mine don't even feel guilty.Delete
When Lady M's away, the boys will play.ReplyDelete
Afraid Rabby and the rest are correct but I still fight that battle.ReplyDelete
Any me big old standard collie used to thump to the floor when he heard the alarm clock.ReplyDelete
"Chairs, schmairs, nothing's stopping me!!" :)ReplyDelete
hee hee xReplyDelete
He certainly doesn't look very comfortable!ReplyDelete
We do have doors, thank goodness. If we didn;t then Tess would spend every night on our bed.ReplyDelete
Our dogs used to climb up when they thought no one was looking or when we weren't home. They'd look guilty as they climbed down if we caught them, but it wasn't enough to make them stop.ReplyDelete
Bok's a little less animated than this fella!ReplyDelete
Well done that Bob. Show him who wins every time.ReplyDelete
