I have been thinking how sweet it is that both my doggies like to chill in my room. They are our guard dogs.
I removed my bed frame to hopefully encourage Chalco; 8yrs old, to hop on up with me but his hips are just horrible. I remove his collar every night also to let his neck dry out and try to retard the growth of bacteria and yeast. Chalco is my high maintenance dog. Jasper however is always ready to fill the other 1/2 of my bed. He is happy-go-lucky, eager to please, and somewhat spastic. Early this morning he was perpendicular to my body. Uncomfortable. Right now he is parallel to me. There is something peaceful about a sweet puppy curled up in a ball, breathing slowly, legs twitching as he runs through dreamland. Adorable and calming. That mildly-musky, semi-dry doggie smell is comforting.
My friend KL asked if I needed an intervention. "Dogs instead of a man?!" She gave me the look. Well, both can keep you warm, are comforting, are protectors, and like to snuggle and FART. But a dog won't get offended when you tell him that his *ss is stanky...you know?!?! Gentle reader, I hope you are at least smiling.
My boys (Chalco and Jasper) are the best. What a privilege to live with dogs. They remind me how sweet and simple our world can be.
