Lady and Lucky are not allowed up on the furniture - they are just too hairy (see Sunday's post!). However, this does not stop them from sneaking up onto a sofa or bed if the opportunity presents itself. Usually the culprit is Lady, and she is sneaky with a capital "S." Generally the only way you know she's been up on the furniture is when you hear a suspicious "thud" on the floor as you're coming up the stairs, and then you find a dog shaped indentation on the bed. On this particular day, I was vacuuming, and suddenly realized I hadn't seen either of the dogs for awhile. I turned off the vacuum and went searching.

              As you can see, Lucky realizes he has been caught doing something wrong and feels contrite. Lady doesn't care. Typical! This scene cracked me up. They don't usually sleep together, but I guess they figured this was an island of safety from the loud vacuum, and I was conveniently distracted and wouldn't notice they were up on the futon. Too funny. I let them stay there till I finished, they were just too cute.

Lady: Yeah yeah yeah, get down off the sofa.


  1. Ah, I love how dogs get their own way sometimes. ^.^

  2. Oh yes, Lady is Queen of Getting Her Own Way! It's especially funny when she tiptoes down the stairs to eat the cat's food. You wouldn't think it possible that a 90 pound dog could tiptoe down a flight of wooden stairs and back without being heard - but she can do it!
