[caption id="attachment_1428" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Gee, I sure do miss Scottie Mom's bed right now...[/caption]
Look out, Heather and Mr. K! Scottie Mom just got word that Scottie Dad is on his way back from the airport. You know what that means. Time to go back to sleeping in the Scottie beds in the living room (or the couch - I won't tell!) before Scottie Dad figures out what we've been up to while he's been gone. I certainly did enjoy our nearly three weeks together of nighttime snuggling and your darling wake up calls of pouncing from one edge of the bed to the other and then right back to me with those tails wagging wildly in the air.
What I won't miss - and this one goes for you, Mr. K - is how creatively you find ways to take up more space than I ever thought possible for a Scottie to do in a queen size bed. There were more than a few mornings I woke up to find myself lying diagonally, horizontally or even curled up to avoid waking the gentle, sleeping Scottie. (Trust me, if you disturb him in his slumber - he isn't quite so gentle. Just ask Aunt Heidi. She got scolded one time for shifting a leg Mr. K was using as a comfy pillow.) Why can't you pick a Scottie spot and stick to it like Miss Heather? There she is, all sweet and contented just at the foot of the bed.
And poor Miss Heather, who's finally getting used to spending a night or two on top of the hooman bed instead of her preferred Scottie spot under the hooman bed. I promise we will go get you something equally as comfy as the hooman bed to make up for the fact you have to go back to sleeping in the living room. I'm afraid those American Kennel Club pet bed sets we bought a while back just aren't cutting it anymore. One round in the wash and they're already tearing and losing their fluffiness. Perhaps it is time to bring back the Martha Stewart ones we originally had? Or maybe our new friends can recommend their favorites we can try out until Scottie Dad takes off on another business trip and you can steal the hooman bed again...
