Eko’s Most Cherished Possessions

For the majority of each day you would have a tough time distinguishing Eko from any of my other couch cushions. He sinks into his blanket and sleeps like a rock. I thought moving would disturb his routine, but how dare I question Eko’s commitment to lounging. While

For the majority of each day you would have a tough time distinguishing Eko from any of my other couch cushions. He sinks into his blanket and sleeps like a rock. I thought moving would disturb his routine, but how dare I question Eko’s commitment to lounging.

While I moved box after box of stuff, Eko remained entirely unconcerned

Eko slept his way through most of my frenetic packing, with a few notable exceptions. The moment I brought out one of my travel bags Eko snapped awake and went into guard mode.

“Where this bag goes, I go”

Eko rode with me for that trip to the new apartment, but as soon as we got back to the old place it was right back to snooze-central. I loudly moved my bed but it elicited nothing more than a yawn from Eko.

“I’m trying to sleep here, can you keep it down?”

But when I brought down his bed…

“And just where do you think you’re going?”

This same process of selective interest of course also played out again when I picked up Eko’s food/treats and toybin. Everything else in the apartment barely elicited more than a yawn from Eko.

So quite literally, when Eko’s world is being torn apart, the only thing that matters is good sleep, good food, good fun and me! The rest is just details. Pretty good mantra in my opinion. It definitely makes downsizing easier when you realize what the important things are.

It’s our last day to move and time for the big push. We’ll catch you guys tomorrow from our new digs!

    Mollie and Alfie

  2. ah I agree, don’t forget the bag AND the dog :o) I’m glad Eko is the supervisor and has just a (closed) eye , a fourlegged helper would be…. hmmm… let’s say contra-productive :o)

  3. Very cute! I especially loved the picture of Eko with your travel bag…he’s no dummy!

  4. Hope today goes smoothly and can’t WAIT to see pix of Eko napping in the new digs (tee hee).

    Good luck! I’m looking forward to hearing your new adventures.

    Sounds like Eko has his priorities right!

  7. When we moved from my childhood home to the house we lived in until Cody died, I was in charge of dog “sitting” until the furniture was done getting to the new house. (Which took all of 4 or so hours. The houses were only blocks away.)

    I tried having coy meet a friend’s dog. But that didn’t work. The friend’s dog ended up going inside of his house so Cody and his sister could get some exercise. Instead of being in a car for four hours.

    This is true. Mom can do many things without us being bothered but a few sounds will tip us off to events we can’t afford to miss. I guess this weekend we will see the luggage come out for BlogPaws, that will be a tip that we are going somewhere.

  9. Eko has his priorities right! That’s how he rolls. Home is where your dad is. …and the rest of your stuff….

    Love and licks,

  12. Exciting times have a smooth move 🙂

  13. Misaki says:

    Hope the move goes well xx

  14. Will, you could not want for a better buddy, all the important things are what matters to Eko…you two are a perfect match. Eko just looks so sweet and he always brings a smile to my face, I know he gives you lots of smiles too. Hugs and nose kisses

  15. I’m excited for all of you.

  16. Thanks for the follow guys! Isn’t it interesting how they can associate suitcases/travel bags with you leaving? Dexter loses it when he sees a suitcase.

  17. Catching up on my blog reading. Love the story. I start sulking as soon as mum gets out her suitcase. Sulking = on sofa with sad eyes. I show interest if my stuff starts getting packed… then I follow mum like a bed smell… I would hate for her to forget me.

    Hope the move went well and you are settling in.
