This is priceless! There are a few members of this household who need to read this (I won't mention names but you know who you are!)

Thanks for a great laugh.

Thanks for the laugh. If I show this to Miss Lilly maybe she will allow me to have another inch of pillow tonight.

That is so funny. I will have to show the bit about sharing the bed to our dog. He sometimes sleeps stretched across the bed and hubby and I are hanging on the edge trying not to fall out of bed. We don't really want to move our furry son because he looks so comfy, but we do. Then he puts his head on my pillow and sleeps like the furry person that he is.

Great Donna! My stepson recently complained because my dog (the lovely Cindy Lou Who, our Boston Terrier) STARED at him while ate.

Let's review: YOU have the yummy people food, she has the yucky dog food. She's learned that if she stares someone will usually take pity and give her a nibble.....

Donna,
I LOVE this. My dogs have almost killed me many times trying to beat me to the bottom of the steps (why DO they do that)? And you haven't LIVED till you've tried to sleep with two 100 pound labs stretched out in a queen size bed (as I do each night)! You have described my life with my dogs (Bear and Moose) to a tee and I wouldnt have it any other way.
