Sleeping on the floor has never really been a problem in the short term (parties, camping, moving house) .
This time, we have a mattress as it will be going with us in the car in case of bad weather when we’re camping. There is no way we intend to buy a caravan this time if we get rained out!
Maggie always sleeps on our bed. We joke and say she has her own, it’s 4’6 and we’re allowed to share it, provided we get in first.
Imagine her furry glee then finding this WONDERFUL bed and pillows on the floor for her to stretch out on, so much better than the other one which was a mere 3′ x 2′ and pillow-less.
I thought I was the only one to do a starfish impression and put a bit of me in every corner as I slept.
Maggie is not exactly a big dog, but she is long and tends to take up a lot of room when she extends herself accordingly.
Last night, she got herself really comfy and I heard her sigh of contentment as she stretched out.
Then she rolled over, and fell off the edge.
This morning, she was curled up between us, obviously feeling safer having human buffer cushions either side. Bless.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
