A Growing Problem

In my little corner of the apartment there is just enough room for my desk, my chair and the futon. During the day when I’m working, Eko likes to keep an eye on me from the futon.Rhodesian Ridgeback, puppy, marking our territory, blog, adventure, chicago

When Penny arrived, Eko graciously shared his perch

There was plenty of room for a sprawling snuggle

Like I said, there was plenty of room. But puppies have a habit of doubling in size every few weeks. The futon situation has become increasingly dire. You could say it’s a real cliff hanger.

From this angle, things look comfy

But when I stood up I could see something was clearly amiss

Namely, Penny’s legs

As gravity slowly dragged Penny off the futon, she woke up quite confused and struggled to reposition herself

She managed to claw her way back into her nap, but for how long?

Here in my little corner of the world a growing problem is, well, a growing problem. Here’s hoping these two are comfortable with a shrinking futon. I’ll be interested to see how this one plays out.

  1. LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!! Oh I’m sorry Will, but your growing problem has given us one of the biggest laughs of the morning – and a lot of cuteness overload as well! I guess you’re going to have to turn an entire room into one big mattress-covered affair for this adorable pair to share more comfortably! 😉 Either that or one day Eko and Penny will team up and take over the bed and shove you and Emily onto the futon…. 😀 Have a fabulous 4th weekend!

  2. Oh dear…the plot lengthens hahahh..all I can say is I have a hideous Futon you are welcome too..i kinda hoped t would fall of the moving truck but alas it clung on for grim death…I have managed to relegate it to the MANTIQUE barn for hubby..i will bring it over….;) hugs Fozziemum pee ess too cute of course!!

    • We’re right there with you, nobody like this futon! That’s what makes it perfect to hand over to the pups. But we’ll see if it can survive Penny’s growth spurts.

      • Hahaah the universal futon disdane! I give it 3 weeks and she will melt right off it…or Eko will end up with a puppy backpack 🙂
