Bed Hog!

I've been saying for some time now, that I was going to sleep with a camera under my pillow so that I can prove what an utter bed hog Travis is. Well last night, I finally did it.

Each night when we go to bed, Riley lays at the bottom of our queen sized bed. Travis then comes up and when he is told "Off", he just pulls dead weight and plops down between Mr. Bruises and I. He won't leave.

Eventually Riley gets warm and moves to his bed on the floor. Travis then moves to the bottom of the bed. Through the night, he gets very comfy. He literally stretches as much as he can. Usually, he ends up horizontal, to our vertical.

As these photos prove, he's very comfy. Remember that Mr. Bruises is to the left and I am to the right.

This photo shows how he has clearly shoved me pretty much off of the bed. My lower legs and feet aren't even on the bed.

I think we need a bigger bed, but I was told that even if we did get one, nothing will change, there will just be more open space in the middle.


YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Love your new header!
I feel for you and Mr. Bruises. Somehow the dogs just get the idea that the bed is comfy and they are taking over it.

Tyler is worse! First of all, we are convinced that he is filled with depleted uranium-- he is WAY heavier than a 65lb dog should be! He "snuggles" up against BF as close as he can get to stay warm (he has very short hair) so BF moves over to give him more room...Tyler snuggles closer...BF moves over... until I'm not in bed anymore!

Last night I had to get up in the middle of the night and go to the other side of the bed because they'd moved so far to my side!

And there is NO way to move that dog once he's asleep! He must weigh 3000 lbs as dead weight!
