Is There Anywhere Eko Can’t Sleep?

Eko is a dog of many talents.  He is an excellent personal trainer, piano player and social media expert.  But above all else, I’ve realized that if “Sleeping” is ever introduced in the Olympics, Eko will be the Michael Phelps of the sport.

Like everyone, Eko is happy to catch some z’s on a comfy mattress

And like the rest of us, he often falls asleep when reading a book

He may have learned the “pass out on the couch with your tongue out” move from me

Bed, floor and couch are all pretty standard, but Eko’s commitment to finding a comfy spot goes much further.

No couch in sight?  Porch swing works just fine.

Eko has also mastered the art of squeezing himself into one cushion chairs

No cushions? No problem.

While art museums sometimes make me sleepy, Eko took that thought all the way when he passed out at a gallery

I don’t know how sleeping on a moving trolley is comfortable, but Eko’s commitment to sleep is unmatched, so he happily dreamed away

Now, you might think that all of our adventures tire Eko out, but I can promise you that he always gets a good nights rest and he always has a nice spot to sleep.  Between two couches, two dog beds and a few blankets there is always a comfy spot for Eko to doze.  So guess where he decides to sleep…

I have yet to figure out why Eko thinks sleeping on a small step is preferable to everything else, but hey, he’s the expert.  So if you ever find yourself wondering, “Hey, I wonder what Eko is up to right now?”  The safe answer is SLEEPING!

  1. My RR Nina does the same thing…She is a snoozing machine as I believe most RRs are………Nina has snoozed like a champ from the time she was 8 weeks old…….she is up at a moments notice to go for a walk , or play…but if there is nothing going on , she does nothing but snooze and she will snooze anywhere in the house,,,the couch, the bed, the floor, U name it , and she will snooze there!!

    • That’s so funny you say that Erina, because the more people with Ridgebacks I hear from the more I realize how similar they are. Eko has two settings, ON and OFF, nothing in between!
