Sleeping Spots at The Annex

Tartok snoozes in the kitchen in case someone is working with food.

Ruby goes for comfort in HER chair.

What is your style?

    Ruby doesn’t have to sleep in the kitchen because she goes and in grabs what she wants when she wants! šŸ™‚

    I like to sleep many different places. Early evening, I like to sleep under the futon. Around 8pm, I’ll curl up on my pillow in the living room, around 9pm, I move to the kitchen and sleep until it’s time for bed. When it’s bedtime I sleep on the pillow in the bedroom or in my crate.

    Ruby has it made! Owning her own chair, that is so cool!

    On top of Mommy is best, though.

    Depends on the time of day. Let’s do daytime! I like to snooze by the oven. Zim likes to be behind the chair in the living room. Ammy likes to either be in her carrier or on the bed or where she can watch over everyone. Dave likes to be touching Mom.

    I’m not allowed on the sofa or bed but i have my own bed on the floor just beside mommy’s. Why can’t humans put their sofas in the kitchen?? Hurhur?

    Let me sum it up for you. Right around dinner time, we all follow Mommy around. Okay, that’s not where we sleep but I was inspired by the top photo šŸ™‚

    You never know when some human will drop something in the kitchen.. Mom says she needs a 3 heeler size kitchen since we all need to help..

    I like to switch it up. If something good is going on in the kitchen, I go in there, but otherwise, I sit on the couch and look out the window.

    At nighttime, I lay down next to my Mom on her bed, once I get her tucked in and comfy, I move to my big pillow bed under the desk. During the day, my Mom has a big folded comforter in the living room which Ali Z thinks is hers, but I lay down on it and Z
    moves to my Moms favorite chair. When my Mom wants her chair back, Ali Z gets disgusted and moves back upstairs. Boo hoo isn’t that too bad. BOL

    Kisses,
    Stella

  14. Jeanine on January 15, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Two on the bed because Peanut must sleep touching her mama! Two on the floor (the boys are on the floor)! We are actually considering getting a CalKing to accomadate the dogs!! Hahaha!

    Marge’s style is definitely Tartok’s style!

    My favorites are across the bottom of the stairs or on the landing of the stairs. Either way, it requires the bipeds to step dance around me so they don’t trip & fall down the stairs, furry entertaining, ha-roo roo roo!

    I gave woo pups an award today – be sure to check it out on my blog!

    Tartok is just like me always helping out in the kitchen in case the humans should accidently drop something I am always there to clean it up for them … free of charge of course. Just one of my many services offered!!!!!!

    Woof Woof, Kody

    I like to sleep on my blankie on the couch after everyhuman has gone to bed. In the morning I slide off the couch and hurry to my crate before they see me.

  20. Huffle Mawson on January 15, 2010 at 7:03 am

    I sleep wherever I like! On the couch, on the bed between mum and dad, on the deck… wherever it’s warmest really.

  21. Houndstooth on January 15, 2010 at 7:01 am

    I prefer MY couch or Mom and Dad’s bed!

    Ruby and Phantom have very similar sleeping positions – find a comfy chair or sofa and be sure to take full advantage of the armrest. TD will sleep most anywhere, floor, carpet, sofa, snow pile, puddle, you name it, he is quite comfortable anywhere.

    Woos and happy weekend, Phantom and Thunder

  23. Martha and Bailey on January 15, 2010 at 6:20 am

    Bailey would be in the chair, preferably with the fire on. Martha would also be in the kitchen anxious lest she missed an opportunity for food!
    Ruby looks very comfy – we hope she has a good book nearby and Tartok is ever alert for possibilities!

    Those two have THE life. Made in the Annex shade. Spoiled rotten.

    My style? Speak softly and carry a large skillet! booowhahahaha!

    pee ess: please set up hidden camera in kitchen to catch counter surfing Olympic tryouts. I’d like to see Ruby make the team.

  26. Teddy Bear on January 15, 2010 at 1:25 am

    Comfy sleeping places, Tartok and Ruby. During the day I like to sleep under the futon on a marble slab. At night I sleep on my tile in Mommy and Daddy’s room. Then move on to the bed after Daddy goes to work.

    Love,
    Teddy Bear
