The Once and Forever Pillow

It started out innocently enough.Rhodesian Ridgeback, puppy, chicago, marking our territory, funny

“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

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?

This happened once 🙂 And another time they were both in the back seat and tired after day care, and he put his head on her 🙂 That NEVER happens.. he never lays on any other dog. But she was special 🙂
