An old, beat up futon across from my desk is where Eko and Penny like to set up shop for most of the day. Shop meaning sleeping quarters, of course. Fitting both pups comfortably is a bit of an operation, but like dance partners, these two know how to twist, twirl and turn just right.
The dance usually begins with both partners in the same position
Inevitably Eko ends up expanding and monopolizing the space
But Penny’s now big enough where she can give it as good as Eko, so sometimes he’s the smushed one
Eko is quite familiar with this dance and when things get tight he knows just how to flip the tables.
By flipping himself!
Penny isn’t afraid to let Eko know how she feels about this maneuver.
“Stop cheating, you jerk!”
Once differences have been settled, the pups will often settle into the “Yin/Yang” formation
On extra cold days, the Yin/Yang formation is modified to the “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
Two golden tickets
If the temps drop a bit further and the heater comes out, everyone gets their face as close as possible
The final step in the Comfy Dog Waltz is reserved for when temperatures drop below freezing. With the cold snap that just set in here in Chicago, it’s looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of the “Two Headed Blanket Monster”
Wrapped tight, only heads exposed, facing the heater. Pure bliss
Temps are dropping across the country, so in the words of The Most Snuggled Pups in the World, “Stay comfy, my friends!”
