Bessie excluded!

Matthew had some friends staying over last night. They decided to sleep downstairs and the living room was strewn with various sleeping bags and duvets.
Bessie really wanted to join them on the basis that they let her last time, unfortunately she was not welcome as they complained that she previously woke them up at the crack of dawn by licking their faces. The upshot was that one very unhappy dog was banished to the kitchen where she scratched at the door, whimpered, howled mournfully and eventually gave up and sulked in her crate!
The minute she was allowed back in this morning, she stationed herself in the middle of all the bedding and stayed put with a look on her face that said it all.
(Bessie above: "This is my bed now")

  1. What does she expect? You can't have a bitch getting in the way of the menfolk.

  2. Honestly, that is so unfair, Bessy! A precedent was established and you were so helpful in serving as an alarm clock. It's so ungrateful to keep you out this time, but that's humans for you. I hope they understand that all that bedding now belongs to you. If not, wee on it and they'll get the point.
    My human doesn't seem to like my weeing in the house so it makes a great weapon. Keep up the good work, hopefully one day you'll have them all licking out of your paw.

  3. You must have been reading your bible properly for a change, Poppy ;)

    Arwen : I was not born yesterday when it comes to canine ways. I said to Kev, "that dog is going to piss on the duvet the minute we turn our backs". We did not turn our backs, I sat in there and marked essays, she just gave me the evil eye!"

  4. Bessie, can we have a chat without your human interrupting? Some people just have no manners! Come the revolution, we'll be weeing on duvets in the warm and they'll be doing it outside in the cold and wet. Won't it be fun to see them beg?

  5. You seem to have your human more under control, Arwen. I have four and they are very badly trained. Sue was entirely responsible for the living room episode AND she wouldn't let me back in until eleven o'clock.
    She does slip me bits of food from her plate when they are eating, but generally I have a hard life!
