Pillow Talk

My popularity has diminished somewhat in the past few days and I'm pretty sure I know why.

It's the pillows.

Kohl's 30% off sale plus the KOHL'S CASH offer was more than I could resist.   I love pillows.   Gary likes one pillow to put his head on at night.  Anything additional is in the way and gets pitched to the floor. 

Gracie's had her old couch pillows since I can remember.  I got her attention when I removed them from the sofa.  If looks could kill...  well... you know. 
 I replaced them with the new and improved pillows.  These pillows have a button-closed cover that I can remove and wash.  I'm excited. 

I tried to console my angry/sad/disguested/discouraged dog... and then thinking that I could make a positive out of a negative, I took Gracie's old pillows and placed them on her doggie bed, the one she never uses, hoping to generate an interest so that me and the mister could sleep better at night with her absent from the middle of the bed. She'd be snuggled in her comfy and familiar doggie bed complete with smelly pillows. 

I realized my plan had failed when I heard her plop herself down on the new pillow and give a sarcastic 'hmph!'

  I guess she's adjusting.


  1. Don't we underestimate our dogs! Sophie is VERY aware of everything we do....especially if it directly affects her! She, like Gracie, will give out this 'sigh' of displeasure.
    But they are so cute....why not!

  2. Thank you for the comment on my blog, and the follow!

  3. Gracie is just like a little kid. If you firmly put her in her dog bed (on your side of the bed, so you can touch her and she can smell you) you should have a few nights eventually, that she will sleep there. We had to do that with Jill, she got too big and is a real bed hog. Jack sleeps with me when daddy is gone, I don't mind.

  4. hilarious. i love my little 3 mo old chiweenie. i never knew i could love a dog so much.

    cute blog. thanks for stopping by my place to say hello. i always try and do my best to follow people who comment back to their blogs and leave a little love.
