We were going to be SO strict in our new house, no doggies on the sofa, dogs most definitely NOT allowed on the beds.
As you can see this did not come to pass!!
It's partly because we still have no doors upstairs as they are waiting to be hung and stained by my perfectionist of a man. So apart from the bathroom and the hall doors we are totally open plan and the little furry members of the family are making the most of it.
I've decided to just go with the flow and so I put a quilt on top of the bed each morning that is machine washable, just so they are not actually on the sheets we sleep on. As much as I love my animals I do not like being covered in doggie fur straight after my bath.
The Jack Russells, Rosy and Mavis have formed a real bond, they play fight as only Jack Russells do, standing on their hind legs wrestling and boxing each other it's fascinating to watch, if little Suky's nose is being pushed out she's not showing any signs of it, as usual she cuddles up to Mum on the sofa each night and chews on her hide bone, oblivious to the madness going on in the rest of the room.
Live and let live, sometimes it's the only way.
