So I have a dog. We have had her for a year now. (A year ago this past weekend is when we got her) She is a lovely dog who is hyper and loves jumping up on people. She also LOVES to jump up on to our bed at about 5:00 -7:00 in the AM. Let me tell you, this was cute the first night. The second night I got a little annoyed because she curled in a ball right in the middle of my legs. The third night I wanted to push her off but I was too tired and I didn’t want to push her onto her head! Night after night this happened. She is cute and all, but not at 5:30 in the morning!
Well, Albie has also gotten in the habit of cuddling with us at night while we settle down to sleep. She lays right in between us and is in heaven. The other night she was cuddled in between us underneath the covers. It soon became time for me to move her to her little bed at the foot of our bed. (Mind you she weighs about 65 lbs. and when she is tired she shows NO intention of moving herself, which results in me picking up all 65 lbs of dead weight and staggering to her bed.)
Well this particular night, I picked her up and layed her down on her bed. The thought crossed my mind that she was probably really warm under the covers with us, so she would probably like a blanket to sleep under on her bed. I went and got a comfy blanket and literally tucked her in... Andrew was trying so hard not to laugh because I really looked pathetic!
She was the cutest little thing all tucked in and we all went to bed happy. Well let me tell you, when 5:00 AM rolled around, no Albie. 5:30: no Albie! 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30: NO ALBIE! People! Turns out when I tuck my dog in at night she stays in her bed ALL NIGHT!! Oh how I love my little Alb-Master. This will become a nightly tradition here at the Curtis home!
(When I laid her down she kept her little arms like that... I didn't move them like that to go over the blanket... I'm not that weird...)
