“This puppy is obviously not sticking around long. I guess I’ll let her sleep on me this one time.”
“Enjoy it while you can, I won’t be your pillow for long.”
“I bet she’s leaving any day now…”
Of course, Penny stuck around. And she often stuck close to Eko-the-pillow.
Sometimes, a bit too close
As Penny grew it got to the point where she couldn’t lay on her pillow without falling off the futon
But undeterred, Penny would snuggle closer
Or squeeze her little butt into a tight spot
Even though she’s grown so much, Penny’s never outgrown her preference to lay with Eko
And Eko, who was once so reticent, is quite amenable to his job as Pillow in Chief
Two pups in a pod
I find a couple things about the standing pillow treaty interesting. First, it’s one directional. I’ve never seen Eko lay his head on Penny. Second, Eko doesn’t seem to mind being used as a pillow one bit. He used to grumble if you sat anywhere near him, but now he barely wakes up when Penny flops on him.
I’m interested to hear from others with multiple pets. What are the “terms of engagement” at your house between pets? Are there any standing treaties to determine sleeping arrangements?
