It’s no secret that Eko is obsessed with our fire place. If I make a move for the wood pile Eko’s tail starts wagging as he hops on the couch to snag prime fireside position.
When the fire is roaring, Eko’s usual likes/wants become insignificant. He loves walks, but Eko will moan and groan if I try to take him on one while the fire is going
Like dog treats, fires at my apartment are for special occasions. If it was up to Eko, every minute of every day would be considered a special occasion, but alas, that is not the case. However, Eko has discovered a modern convenience that is almost as good as a fire. A few months ago I bought a space heater for our little corner of the room. As it turns out I also unknowingly purchased the new love of Eko’s life.
If I have the heater facing the desk, Eko will nudge me until he can get his share of the warmth. He will get as close as physically possible to the heater
To see just how committed Eko is to being in front of the heater, I set it to oscillate back and forth. The result was instant hilarity.
Eko scooted forward and followed the heater to the right…
And all the way back to the left
And it just keeps getting better. If I slowly pull the heater a bit further away from the couch than Eko would like…
He will drag himself off the couch and sleep halfway standing up just so he can be a few precious inches closer to his beloved
Life sure is tough for a modern urban pup!
It’s funny to think about all the modern inventions our pets have acclimated themselves to – cars, TVs, elevators, space heaters, the list goes on and on. Does your pet have a favorite modern convenience?
