Lucy on the Couch

We've done a decent job of training Lucy not to get on the couch. She still jumps up every once in a while, but she knows that she isn't supposed to be up there and she hops off as soon as you look at her. She does do her funky lean/half bum sit...but it's hilarious and we are totally okay with that. Lately though....we have been letting her sit on the couch with us, on our lap, ONLY if we invite her. Sounds like we are cheating, but so far she hasn't decided to take over the couch...which was our worry. And it makes movie watching, book reading, or being sick much more enjoyable for us as she lays perfectly still and vegs out.  Letting her sit on your lap though is definitely a two person job!

That is absolutely precious... She looks so comfortable up there, but what do you do if you have to get up to pee?

I love this picture! It makes me long for that giant dog I've always dreamed of.

We let Shiva on the couch, only with our permission as well. At least, that was the rule. Every now and then I let it slide. Especially when she looks so cute curled in my blanket. Our dogs know how to get us, don't they?
