We try to have strict rules so all the furniture doesn’t get taken over by the dogs since both Jim and I are allergic to big loads of dog dander.
Our compromise is this: One ancient sofa near the front hall is all theirs. Sucia and Patos know that they can wrestle, scratch, jump on, chew toys and rough-house all they want on “their” old couch. The rule for the rest of the furniture is off-limits. The one exception is this gray couch, and by invitation only, in this picture is that it is off-limits, UNLESS it is covered with one of their fleece blankets. they can only be on it when it is covered with one of these fleece blankets, usually when one of us is on the couch and want a pup to snuggle next to us. Clearly, this was an afternoon that Sucia and Patos discovered that the fleece blankets were left on unattended…….😊
Every household has rules–spoken or unspoken. Sometimes we humans fail to keep our end of the bargain, and it is either confusing or allows bending the rules a bit. (Haha) Weims have a way of working things to their liking. We all know that. Don’t we adore them for their shrewdness — for the challenge they present? I think we can agree, we do.
Thank you, Megan, for this fabulous update. We truly appreciate it!
~Or, Where’s our Lu?
So – Lu doesn’t sleep on the bed with us at night but has her own crate and bed.
But during the day for naps, I bought a heavy muslin-weight couch cover that I put over the bed, and she has her own blanket. At 8 years old, she does like her creature-comforts (in fact in very cold weather she loves to nap on top of the heat vent!). Spoiled? Of course.
This morning is freezing fog in Central Oregon, and after her morning outing and breakfast, guess where she heads!
I’m titling this one: “There’s a Weim in there somewhere”!
Hope you and Cliff have a great 2019 – and thanks for all the wonderful posts.

It is so good that you keep us apprised an Lu and her antics. This is a good one–where all of us might like to be on such a morning as you describe. (Haha)

While Waiting For Santa
Here I am–just kicking back, waiting for Xmas. My Mommie doesn’t like it when I lay like this, she says I have no shame. But I love sleeping like this. All I can think about is treats for Xmas.
I’m so looking forward to Santa’s Xmas cookies, cause I’m taking them before the fat guy gets here. Merry Christmas to you and Cliff
We are happy that you are well –and that you and your Mama were able to escape ahead of the Paradise area fires. The fact that your home survived is a miracle; however, we are happier to know that your Mama and you two OwyheeStar Weimar kids got to safety.
