This week I've chosen to do #1, My animals are making me nuts.
I've chosen this one because my dog, Ozzy has been driving me up the wall lately. You see, he sleeps in our bed with us. He loves to be under the covers too. My husband has the fan on at night and it seems to make Ozzy cold so he gets under the covers. Normally he sleeps at the foot of the bed, under the covers but lately I have been waking up to him right next to me. I don't know what it is but when he does that, I wake up with my back hurting cause he puts his weight into my back. Grant it, he's not a big dog. He's an 11 lb Miniature Pinscher but having that 11 lbs leaning into my back for a period of time before I realize it doesn't feel good.
When I wake up, I try and get him to go to the foot of the bed but he'll just move a foot and I have to keep pushing him down. Then he ends up in my leg space. ANNOYING! I know your all "don't have him sleep in your bed then" but that's just mean, I think. Remember, I'm an animal lover and he doesn't have a full coat so he needs his blankies. lol! :D
Another thing is, when he does get on the bed, we'll be watching tv and he'll just stand there in our way and my husband and I start yelling at him to lay down and he'll just stare at us like "HUH?" or he walk around in circles just to find that right spot, meanwhile we just missed a crucial part of TMZ. (LOL!) Good thing for the DVR, so we can rewind it.
Also, when we are eating something, he'll come right up to our face and sniff our mouths. I'm all "Dude, get out of my face!"
It's funny just thinking about it now but at the time it's annoying.
He is a great dog though! I can't just leave this post with all negative. He does provide us with some funny moments. For instance, you know those big balls that you can get at the grocery stores. The ones that are almost the size of the workout balls. I think they're about 1.5 ft to 2 ft in diameter. Anyways, we have two of those and he simply LOVES the things. He start jumping on it, the side of it that is. It looks like he is trying to jump over it but he can't cause it's bigger than him. We'll tell him "Get the ball" and he'll go attack it and it's the funniest thing ever. We've tried video taping it but it always comes out dark but one day we'll get it and send it into America's Funniest Videos.
Um, yeah....no comment! (LOL!!)
It's also fun to dress him up in old ripped up socks.
