A great excuse for pet owners/lovers to write about our pawed friends.
Kosats is huge.
He’s 85+ lbs and doesn’t understand that he’s not a tiny lap dog.
Speaking of lap dogs…
Kostas just wants to be close. If I’m sitting at the counter, he’s sleeping at my feet. If I’m in the shower, he’s laying on the rug outside the shower. (Side note–Kostas loves soap. He’s been known to stick his head into the shower and lick suds and water.) If I’m trying to get out the door, he’s right there to remind me to take him with me.
I call Kostas my portable space heater because he always wants to be right next to me (or in my lap) and when I let him (which is often) sleep in bed, he keeps me really warm. He starts off all curled up into a “little” ball – I think he does that to make it seem like he won’t take up much space. Fast forward 7 hours…
The October 2012 issue of Fitness Magazine features an article “Make Tonight a Total Snoozefest” and shares tips on getting a good night’s sleep. One of the tips, allow your pet in bed, and the companionship can restore sound sleep. Maybe sometimes, but 7 hours after allowing Kostas in bed, I’m usually not rested. He kicks at night – I’ve woken up to him “punching” me in the chest with his huge rabbit feet.
It’s hard to say No to this face:
Do you allow your pet in bed? Any “rules” that you allow your pet to break that your partner is a stickler for?
I better include a shout-out to Tucker today!
