The sun is shining, the birds are twittering, and all is otherwise quiet here on the marina.
Our friends are attending a special birthday party tonight, and so Tuppy will be spending the weekend with us, which includes an overnight stay.
Although we have had two dogs on board on several occasions, sleepovers haven’t been necessary, so tonight is going to be interesting, as like Maggie, Tuppy sleeps on the bed.
Sorry sweetheart, but that ain’t gonna happen, as we know from past experience that allowing another dog in the bedroom, let alone on the bed, is a definite No-No in Maggie’s domain.
We are lucky in that Maggie and Tuppy get on and also that her routine is very similar to ours. We will have to lift Maggie’s food though as Tups is likely to stick her head in and keep it there until the bowl’s empty. She would then resemble a blimp and we’d have to roll her everywhere like a marble.
Obviously, we don’t have ‘walls’ round our bedroom (that is one of the advantages of a wide beam by the way, a full size bed you can walk around, bedside cabinets, a door and privacy in case you have overnight visitors), and Tuppy is so tiny, she couldn’t jump up on the bed anyway. So to save her any distress and for her to have human company, we have a plan B, or should I say Plan T. Hubby intends to sleep on the single bench with her tonight while Maggie and I curl up together as normal.
To be continued…………………………………..
Is there a Plan “B” in the event that either/both canines aren’t cooperative regarding the sleeping arrangements? 🙂
You should see them now. Both wee’d and poo’d, treat given, with Maggie asleep on her blanket, and Tuppy giving it ZZss in her basket on the floor.
As for Plan B, tomorrow’s post (and after the event) will answer your question Colin. 😀
