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. well it might be time to get a bigger futon and get a rolling laptop stand so you can join the fracas on the futon

  2. Loosen up the wallet. Penny needs her own and she needs to pick it out. Never pick out something with a design for a female yourself, she’ll hate it, guaranteed.

  3. Poor Penny, she has her head in a dangerous position in that one shot too…hope Eko doesn’t have any gas issues! Space can get tight real quick and we know all to well that bed for bigger dogs take up lots of floor space too. You may need a bunk bed option somehow.

    • I was just about to say I wish they made bunk bed for big dogs, but then I realized they do. They’re called bunk beds. One way or another we’re going to need to get creative over here.
