You will notice that most of the recent of pictures of Maggie on her new cushion here have had her underneath the window in front of the radiator.
However, it would appear that she is following her ‘pack instinct’ and wants to be close, so we have moved it. She is now happily giving it Zzzs in front of the bookcase between our two chairs.
When we retire at night the cushion comes into the bedroom and is put in the corner under her nightlight. Most nights though she curls up on the bottom of the bed, eventually snuggling behind my knees. Yes I know, some people don’t like this idea, but we are among the 60 odd percent of owners who allow their dog to sleep on the bed (source).
I agree with the three main reasons given too:
Dogs are warm
Dogs are relaxing
Dogs make you feel safe
(I also go along with they can disturb your night’s sleep!)
We’ve had another nice and relaxing walk today, this time round the park, and she has come back with no stumbles.
She still disappeared onto the beach this morning and hoped we’d follow though.
The tide was even further out today.
