He's driving me nuts!

Head over to Mama Kat's and participate in her weekly assignment's.

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.

In the end, he's our cool dog!


Yes, I said he!

Oh! He's cute! My parents dog used to sleep with me when I still lived with them. He'd get right up next to me and then I'd wake up with all four paws digging into my side or back! It wasn't very comfortable. At least they were little paws!

Love that last pic! My dog has to sleep right in front of my stomach. If I roll over, she will walk over me and lay down. If I roll over again, she will do the same thing.

he's so cute; looks like he has a lot of personality!

I can relate with the sleeping on the bed routine; our corgi sleeps in our bed and he is a bit of a bed hog

enjoy your day

I love that picture. It really does look like he is thinking Huh! or What? Cute

Jody said...

He is a cute little guy isn't he. But I have to admit that when you are eating something and you turn to look at them and they are 4 inches away from you that there are times I just want to pull my hair out lol
