Sammy Dog

My parents stayed at our house with Zack while I was in the hospital. Mom said that she found our dog, Sammy, sleeping on Zack's bed one morning. She asked me if he normally sleeps there. Sammy usually avoids Zack like the plague, so I was shocked that he chose to sleep next to him. He normally sleeps on the floor next to my side of the bed. I figured he just decided to protect Zack while there were strangers in the house.

Well, since we've brought Addison home I have shewed him off of Zack's bed twice. Addison's bassinet is in our room, so he must think four is a crowd and decided to find new, more comfortable, sleeping quarters. I don't know how to prevent him from getting on Zack's bed. I put random things on the couch cushions at night and when we're away to keep him down and we keep our bedroom door closed when we're gone, but I can't do anything to Zack's bed or door while he is sleeping. I'm sure Zack loves his new roommate, but I don't want him to have a hairy stinky bed.

Yesterday I washed Zack's bed sheets and found Sammy using Zack's beloved Ruff-Ruff as a pillow. Did I mention Sammy normally runs away when Zack comes around?

I guess a new baby is a change for Sammy too. And it's funny that you mentioned putting random things on the couch when you aren't home. We do the same thing, but lately we've been putting baby gates on the couch.

That is so sweet! We have tried and tried to get our dog, Zoey, to sleep with Teagun. She used to sleep with us and when I had Teagun got demoted to her own bed in our bedroom. When Teagun got his big boy bed, we moved her bed in with him in hopes they would "connect" more. Nope, she still doesn't like him - just goes in there to sleep in her own bed. I wanted Zoey and Teagun to be best buds, but doesn't look like that is going to happen anytime soon!
