Does your pet have a favorite place at home?

Most pups I know have a favorite bed, couch cushion or comfy crate where they love to curl up. Eko has a favorite place, but unfortunately it’s about 93 million miles from Earth and tends to move around a bit. Eko’s favorite spot is the sun.  In our old apartment Eko knew all the best sunbathing spots and would happily trade away cushions for better position in the sunshine.rhodesian ridgeback, sun, chicago

On cloudy days Eko would patiently wait for the sun to peak out…

And then stretch himself as close as he could to his favorite star. You can practically hear him saying “Awwww, YES!”

He also mastered curling himself just-so in order to maximize sunlight. I swear Eko is solar powered

As we settle into our new place, Eko has played the part of Goldilocks, trying to find a new favorite spot that fits just right. I suspected it would be on the couch by the front windows.rhodesian ridgeback, sun, chicago

So I couldn’t figure out why he chose the futon in the back room where there is only a single window

I couldn’t figure it out because it had been cloudy over the past few days. Then one sunny afternoon it all clicked.

“Wooo, new favorite spot, baby!”

I never should have doubted the little sundial. When we moved in he must have noticed the back room actually gets some of the best direct sunlight in the afternoon.

One happy pup

If you can look at all of these photos of Eko’s big yawns in the sun and not yawn yourself, you have more self-control than I do. He looks pretty comfy, I think I may just ask him to move over!
