How Many Greyhounds Can Fit On A Bed?

The other morning, I woke up to find a rather unusual sight.  Usually, Mr. Taleteller gets up with the hounds when Lilac starts fussing and takes them out.  Then they come back inside, eat breakfast and go back to sleep in the living room.  Mr. Taleteller likes to get out his quilt and sleep on the floor for a few more hours, as well.

Bunny really likes quilts and blankets.  I mean, she REALLY likes them!  As soon as she sees the quilt come out, she is dancing around the living room in anticipation of crawling under it.  On nights when it's not cold enough for Mr. Taleteller to feel like he needs the quilt, she will stand on the bed and stare at him until he gets up and brings it to bed.  When I leave my blanket folded over the back of the couch during the day, she pulls it off and curls up with it.

So, it really put a kink in her tail when Mr. Taleteller laid down on the floor with Lilac beside him under the quilt.  He said at first she huffed, then walked around them, sighed, walked as close as she could without stepping on Lilac.  Lilac would not get up.  So, she did what she had to do.  She wormed her way in between my husband and Lilac, under the quilt and made herself at home.  After curling up initially, she began to stretch out slowly.  By the time I got up an hour later, Mr. Taleteller had lost his spot on the dog bed and Lilac and Bunny were both very comfortable and cozy.  It looks like they both won this one!

  1. Chuckling - looks familiar to me as The Herd likes to try to claim whatever sleeping spot I want.

  2. Aw, we love to snuggle up too - you look very cosy.

  3. I could use one of those quilts right now -- I'm freezing and want nothing more than to go back to sleep instead of go to school..

  4. Mr. Taleteller-0


    Cute entry gal!

  5. I think there is room for one more there!!!

  6. She knows what she wants and won't give up till she gets it! She's as smart as she is cute :)

  7. You make me giggle almost every morning. A priceless gift!

    Our dogs feel the same way about sleeping bags when we camp. But, they get too hot under quilts at home, so boringly, they just lie on top of them. No good stories there...

  8. You certainly do know how to "cover the main points." I'm just sayin'.

  9. Our three get in bed and sleep with us.... all on my side in a row along one side of me. It is great in the winter, but when it is hot, not so much!

  10. They do look nice and comfy, cozy on that bed!

  11. I'm smiling! Take over the place! Way to go guys!

  12. HT4...I'm cracking up because as I was reading your blog, I could see it happening. Josie will compete with one of her pussycats Mr. Big for a blanket. Mr. Big usually wins. I'm new to your blog, but I love the way you write. Much Love!

  13. PS what beautiful greyhounds you have!

  14. Dory and Bilbo are the same, except on top of "fuzzy blankets" amaze me how cunning they can be!

  15. Bunny! Way to dethrone Lilac. Oh, yeah, the slow stretch we're all so familiar with. I bet you had a very innocent expression in your face, as you stretched. As for Mr Papa, you made your bed and now you can't lie in it BOL
    PS Stop putting ideas in Frankie's head. Haaaa

  16. LOL! At least Bunny still got to keep her feet warm under the quilt!!

    As for how many greyhounds can fit on that bed? ...I am sure a couple more!!

  17. So that's what they mean by "I've got your back" ...


We love hearing your comments!
