Tripping Over The Dog

I've been tripping over big dog beds for years. Trix wants to stay close, so I've always had a big dog bed right by the computer desk. A slight disability gives me an awkward walk, meaning that I stumble over her every time I get out of my chair. Then, a stroke of genius! Clean out the bottom of the little closet that is right next to the desk and put the dog bed back in there! I was worried that maybe Trixie wouldn't like it, but she has really taken to the idea. It is an especially good place for her to hide rawhide bones that she has snatched away from Ellie.

Last night she looked uncomfortable, as she had slid forward and her head was off of the bed. Nothing that an old pillow from the couch couldn't rectify.

Now, isn't that better?

I put Ellie's new bed back under the desk. Even though Ellie is only a house guest, I've asked her to straighten up all those wires under there.



  1. Peg, it was good to hear from you again... after AAL went dormant, I hoped it was just because you were taking a little break and not because of any serious problems. It's always great to hear about a homeless animal who beats the odds and is adopted into a loving home. Trixie had it rough for awhile, but she's going to have it made from now on.

  2. It is so good to hear from you, too! I apreciate you taking and the time to stop and to leave your kind comments.

    I do love my animals and even used to have two cats in the menagerie with the four dogs. Trix is the last one left and we've had her for about 10 years.

    best regards!
