Dog Rules
... or maybe that should be Dogs Rule!

I ran across this list yesterday on Pinterest, and laughed and laughed. It describes our seven canine family members to a T.

All except for the last two rules. We’re not there yet.

At least not quite.

  1. The dog is not allowed in the house
  2. OK, the dog is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.
  3. The dog is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.
  4. The dog can get on the old furniture only.
  5. Fine, the dog is allowed on all furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with humans on the bed.
  6. OK, the dog is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.
  7. The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the covers.
  8. The dog can sleep under the covers by invitation only.
  9. The dog can sleep under the covers every night.
  10. Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the dog.

Ha Ha fortunately mine can't manage to jump up on the bed now. Amber and Pebble the two poms before Spike and Joshua were a little bigger and could jump on. I have a kingsize bed of which I was allowed a two foot space on the edge....smile!
Love the light in this one :)

Hahaha my dog is exactly the same. Humans come second, dogs first! Rule #345: okay, okay, chewing all the furniture is fine...
