The girls are NOT allowed on the furniture

Tasha here. I'm going to do this post since I've been here the longest.

When I first came to live with my people, Dad had a rule: no dogs on the furniture. He had grown up on a farm where the dogs weren't allowed in the house so I thought as long as I live in the house, I can live with the furniture rule. Then Dad went to Germany for a few weeks and Momma modified the rule while he was gone. I could be on their bed but no other furniture. The years roll by and many hours are spent on the beds. They have to lift me on and off the bed now due to my arthritis. Eva is the typical Belgian pogo stick so she doesn't need any help.

So today, Momma had an unexpected day off. Something about the roads being slushy ice and highways being a parking lot. (Momma - 4 miles took 40 minutes, with 13 more to go I gave up and went home). She decided to spend some extra special 1:1 time with us so she put a blanket on the couch and snuggled with each of us for a while. Lots of ear and belly rubs. Lots of snoses. We have her so well trained.

Edited to clarify- Yes, we were on the couch. The blanket was for easy removal of the evidence since obviously we have quite a bit of multi-colored fur and like to leave it everywhere we go.

No pictures due to our need to deny this ever occured.

Belly rubs,

Your secret's safe with us! We want to know how you did it, though. We're still stuck on the "only on the bed" stage. Any pointers for us?

Oh yes, being on the sofa is great fun! I am so glad you'all got to expericence it. I hope you mom gets to do that again. Maybe your dad can be won over with lots of hugs and kisses. We did the sweet eyes and wooing and our dad gave in.

Secret's safe with us! We had that no furniture rule at our house... and then it was the only the bed rule... and then it was the only-on-the-sofa-if-it-has-a-blanket rule... and then it was the only-on-YOUR-chairs-rule... and then it was the anything goes rule. We like that one best.

Dogmom says you're going back to check out Dog Pad tomorrow, so we'll see you there. We can strategize how to get even more furniture time for you.

Till then... wuf ya!
