couch potato


A while ago, we started leaving Jack at home by himself without putting him in his kennel.  After one chewed pillow, he seemed to learn his lesson and stayed out of trouble.  But still, he would cower in the corner every time we got home as if he did something wrong.  We would make our rounds and discover that nothing was chewed up.
One day, Jason noticed a warm spot on the couch accompanied by some dog hair. We quickly came to the conclusion that Jack was treating himself to a relaxing nap on the couch whenever we were gone.  Because he is such a big dog, we never allowed him on the couch.  But instead of breaking him of the habit, we embraced it and started putting a sheet over his favorite spot whenever we left him home alone.  
Slowly over time the sheet stayed on the couch more often and now we let Jack sit on the couch even when we are home.  He is so spoiled.  But we love it.  I feel like it makes him even more a part of the family when he joins us on the couch to watch some t.v. or a movie.  Do you let your dog get away with anything?

p.s. it's friday!! have a great weekend you guys.

I love that your pup gets a sweet place to nap! My pupperoni gets away with murder, but she's so darn cute! Here we are taking morning pictures together: http://work-it-blog.blogspot.com/2011/05/workin-more-puppy-pics.html

How could you say no to that face? We finally kicked our two out of our bed (best decision ever), but I don't have the heart to kick them off the couch. We keep blankets on them at all time now. I figure they live there full time and guests only come for a visit (we pull them off when guests come, no worries)
