Thawing chris

I worked at Samaritans until  midnight and got home to find the cottage in total silence.
The kitchen was strangely devoid of bulldog snores, so I checked on Winifred's crate only to find it strangely empty! ( I have trained the big girl to sleep in her own crate since she arrived)
The living room was also dogless so I tiptoed upstairs and looked in our bedroom.
There was Chris all  fast asleep and peaceful and next to him was George, Meg, William AND Albert all comatose in little furry bundles......and who did I spy with her head on MY pillow? . Legs waving uselessly in the air? Yes it was a bleary eyed and grinning Winifred......
Her expression said it all
I was invited.....it " said"
Me thinks that Chris' bulldog antipathy has finally come to an end

  5. Did you get a picture before you carried her off? Please say you did?

  6. Hehe.
    Did you ever get to sleep in your own bed, John?
    Have a great weekend!

  7. I am disappointed there is no picture. At least your side was nice and warm.

    Love,

  9. Aw...that's so cute. I agree with the rest....there should be a picture.

  10. If it was as cold as you said it was on one of your last post, Chris probably needed all the non electric blanks to keep him warm.

    cheers, parsnip

  11. That's free heat you're carting away downstairs ... perhaps you should reconsider :)

  12. Animals are good bed-warmers.Glad Winifred is winning Chris over. I hope you eventually managed a good night's sleep!

  13. She let you remove her from the bed?? maybe you should just have moved to the spare room.....

    ReplyDelete
  14. With so many dogs in the house, it's essential to have either a spare bedroom, or a good comfy sofa; or both.

  15. So you didn't make up a bed in Winnie's crate ? I think Chris set that up !

  16. If you didn't take a photo, please do a reconstruction of the scene!

    1. That was my first thought...he probably just gave up the fight!

  18. Why didn't you take a photograph - I would have been delighted to see that. Bulldogs rule OK. Met a lovely one called Julie the other week.

  19. Did any of the others sneak into your space while you were struggling downstairs with the snoring one?

  20. Huh, typical! I know just how it is to find one's bed covered with animals - and having to snake one's body inside any gaps left without disturbing them, receiving warning growls, angry whipping tails, and sometimes even a clawed slap in the process. But we do need reminding of our place, J.G.

  21. LOL that's awesome. You should have totally snapped a pic. My dream is to have 4-5 pets and for them to all sleep with me at night. I just think that would be neat. However my girlfriend would likely object.

  22. sounds like my DH in our caravan. I slept on the floor in a sleeping bag!

  23. Had the central heating gone off? That would explain the extra 'heating units' in bed with Chris. ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ha ! a picture that would have made, if you knew you could get away with the taking of one, yes? xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. You guys have the patience of Job! I need my bed to myself!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sweet! Our Newfs are too big for the bed,but I've woken up several times in the past few weeks buried under cats after having dreamt I'm paralyzed and unable to move...

  27. How could he resist her cute squishy face :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. John, methinks you could well be right

    ReplyDelete
  29. awwww how cute

  30. Lovely homecoming scene!

    ReplyDelete
  31. While you must've been knackered, i'm sure it was a sweet scene to behold. Wonder if there'll be any room for you tonight, or if you must learn to share your pillow with Winnie.

  32. ...... and NO picture, you missed an opportunity there!!
