Sleeping Spots



Kelly is provided with two very lovely doggy beds. One is by my desk so she can be near me while I work. The other is upstairs next to our bed for her to sleep at night. Kelly likes these beds, and even sleeps in them at times. But, since she sleeps a good majority of the day, she has lots of other preferred sleeping spots. Her favorite is the back of the couch. At times she curls up on the seat of the couch like a normal person--er, dog--but most often she jumps up to the back of the couch and sprawls out. If we are sitting on the couch and beckon her to come sit beside us, she jumps up and springs to the back of the couch and curls behind our necks. To me, this is cat behavior. Kelly is not a cat-sized dog. She's 35 lbs, rather large to be wrapped around a neck. But it does feel soft and warm. Kelly also loves to lay on a narrow ledge on the front porch. This ledge is only 4 inches wide! There is a wicker couch out there, a chair, and a trunk with a nice comfy cushion on top. But Kelly chooses a narrow ledge. Go figure.
Where do your dogs like to sleep?

We don't have a dog (yet). But our new kitten likes to sleep on the arm of the sofa and curled up on a hard wooden dining room chair. She does come cuddle on our laps sometime, and she sleeps with us on the bed - that is, until she wakes up in the middle of the night and is ready to play!
