Co-habitation

2 greyhounds on my sofa on a 22 degree night


After I started letting the hounds get on the sofa, I wondered how long it would be before they would peacefully share the sofa.  The first time it happened, I took this photo with my phone.  I figured that if I got up to get the camera, they would move off the sofa and ruin the picture.

I put the red sleeping bag on the sofa to keep dog hair from getting all over the sofa, and it has been a godsend!  Nothing sticks to the nylon surface.  I have since added a second sleeping bag to enclose the back cushions.

If I were more dedicated to this photo session, I would somehow figure out a way to have the sleeping bags perfectly neat and even spotlessly clean so that the two red colors would match exactly!  However, I usually have a cat on my lap, and the laptop resting on one leg, and don't want to disturb the baby(cat), nor do I want the hounds to wake up and leave the sofa.  So this is the best that it will be.

Fleur has always been a personality that complains if the other hound is touching her, so when she started sharing the sofa I wondered if she had killed off the old Fleur!

  1. Fleur sounds like Jeffie! He hates to be touched while he's sleeping, but of course, it's OK if he is the one doing the touching! He snuggles up to Sid every time Sid is poorly, bless him!

    We use sleeping bags here, too, but just on the floor. No dog hair sticks to leather, either!

    1. Jay, I agree about the leather, but won't spend the money tp recover or replace the sofa for a long time!

    1. I agree, and am very surprised about the change in the dogs' attitudes ( Fleur). Power is so relaxed that he just ignores all moodiness from Fleur or Chica.

  3. Very nice! Mine used to share a couch at home, but not in the RV.

    1. I finds critters' habits very entertaining. I wonder why your hounds don't share a motorhome sofa!?

  4. Such cutie-pies! The first photo looks like their back ends ARE touching, so that's a surprise. The second photo has a tiny space between them. I'm glad they have a nice warm spot to sleep when it's cold during the night.

    Chica is the lucky one - on your lap and under the covers at night, I'll bet. Now that we are in warmer weather, Katie is back on the couch on her blanket. I have to admit, I do like her there on the couch at night. Now I have the whole bed and no dog hair in my bed! :)

    1. Fleur likes to paw at the sleeping bag and get it all messed up and bunched up.

  6. The both look very comfortable and super sweet!

  7. Some things are so good that it's worth sharing it with someone else!
