I'm making up...


I've spent the last 2 days being a 'lapdog' ...(shudder). By my own choice even. Normally I avoid laps like Puffy avoids baths. Laps move. They're hot. Lumpy. They BOTHER me. I prefer my own space on the ottoman or the back of the sofa or the far end of the sofa or the other sofa way across the room.
But, I screwed up royally Thursday night. Normally I get to sleep in the king size bed with my peeps. I snuggle up to the Mr. and put the smelly end over near HER and occasionlly give her a shovey with my hind leggies. When SHE gets up around 3am for her noctornal bathroom run, I always zip over to her side and stretch out in front of her pillow where it's nice n toasty. Then when she comes back to bed, I put on my magic weight gain and instantly gain like 100 lbs, making it near impossible to move me back into the middle.
Well, Thursday....I just wanted to let her know it was MY spot dang it...so I marked it...doggie style, right about where her ginormous rear would hit it when she came back. I seriously miss-judged the amount of drama that would cause. All the lights came on, snarling n growling commenced (from the Mr's side), name calling ...something like PEEPOT....little WITCH....(I think it was WITCH, coulda been a word that sounded like that too)...covers went flying all over the room, I went flying into my crate, doors slammed, the washy machine cranked up....it was quite the event!
The next day SHE diss-ed me. Turned her back on me and wouldn't speak to me all day. Needless to say, my wee feelings were crushed. Friday night I snuggled up to the Mr. all evening hoping he would choose ME over HER. I sat on his lap, snuggled up on his chest. Gave him soft woofy kisses. It didn't help. I still spent the night in jail. Puffy snickered all night. He CHOOSES to sleep in his crate, but then his door isn't slammed shut n locked either.
So today, I've sat on HER lap. I never ever sit on her lap. She gets up n down all the time. But like the suck up I'm trying to be, everytime she plopped down, I crawled right up on her lap. At least she didn't toss me off (which I actually expected).

I'm just sayin'......sometimes....yah just grovel a little to get back in HER good graces. And hopefully back into the big bed. I think the jury is still out on that. I heard the Mr. say it took 3 times in the dryer to get the comforter dry. And he sounded a bit annoyed.
So I'm really pouring it on thick with HER. She's actually a softer touch than the Mr. I know I bothered her with my pitiful crying last night. She had to get up and get her IPOD to go to sleep.



If this doesn't work, I may need lock picking lessons so I can escape my crate.

Dear "Scraps of me"
OOOO...sounds like trouble to me! Im not surprised Mom and the Mr were mad! I've seen these things before - a couple of years back - with our spoilt little Toffee too. Mom was advised to chuck him off the bed so that he could discover who was boss. Well it did the trick and Mom and the big Boss now have their bed back.
But don't be alarmed...its usually the Moms who relent and pick us up again:)

By the way...those gifts in the previous post were really cute!!!
Lots of licks

Don't worry,

She'll come around, she just wants you to suffer for a while. Believe me, I know the drill!

It appears that you showed a wee lack of judgement there (hehehe). You might consult the Mr. since I suspect there is room for him in the big bed even if he doesn't mark it, know what I mean?

Stick with the snuggling and pathetic crying sounds for now. Also try ducking your head a bit and looking up with big sad eyes.

Slobbers,
Mango

Hmm...okaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...so we might have had some experience with this...

First of all...you might wanna mention to your mom that you can buy waterproof mattress pads that don't feel like a plastic bag...they're sorta expensive, but waaaaaaaay cheaper than the mattress...

All of our beds have them. I, Lacie, do so enjoy a good pee on the bed...I wait until Mumsie is changing the sheets then I get up and nail the mattress...feels sooooo soft on my little feet...sorta like grass or a hooge wee wee pad!!!!

We terriers vote to give ya another try on the big bed...maybe you just drank a little too much water the night before??? Course, we don't hafta do your wash either!!!

Oh...I TOTALLY understand your aversion to laps...they wiggle and move and are like squishy...I ONLY use them during thunderstorms...

Laciegirlie....XXOOXXOO

Pee ess...what is your name dear? We keep callin' ya Scrappy which is a pawfect name for a terrier, but we weren't sure!!!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh...Bonnie...sorrry sorry sorry...we just remembered...shame on us...

Is ur middle name Scrappy???????

I think there is a Naughty Scottie flu going around. Pippi has been pushing it for a few days now.

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! Now Bonnie, Moms and Dads have serious issues with marking there bed. I do not know why but it always causes a big ruckus. I think you will have to play suck up for a while yet until they forget, which they will don't worry!

BRUTUS said...

Oh, Bonnie. I wish you would have consulted with your pal Brutus here.... Could of told ya that wouldn't go over well... I have experienced middle-of-the-night-mattress-stripping parties - not a pretty sight. The cleaners thought my mom was nuts because she was having her feather duvet cleaned weekly... My dad said one more time and it's in the crate with you, so I shaped up. Good luck with the sucking up - might take a few more days to get back in their good graces!!

Snorts-

Jazzi said...

Bonnie,
That was a funny story but I Dont think that it was the best thing for you to do, is to mark your spot. Some things just arent worth fighting for!!
Dont worry, your mom will get over it and you will back in her good graces soon enough.
SMILE at her, she cant resist your cute face!!

Use your Scottie mindtricks - you'll get back in that big bed soon.

XOXO

Inky and Molly said...

All will be forgiven soon, we're sure of that. Tell her that you are having nightmares in jail and act deranged...that might help

Forever An'GUSMom said...

It might help to brainwave the thought to her that Scotties don't live forever! That's what we do when we wee on the bed or the rocker or the sofa or.....well ya get the idea! Then all is forgiven.

Maybe your Mommy will buy you some bellybands. Sometimes we just can't hold it, and once wee starts, it is unstoppable!

Deefor said...

That shows a serious lack of judgment. Isn't there some rule about not peeing where you sleep? Or is it where you eat? I forget... Just snuggle up after the lights go out. Humans have very short memories.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh dear. Somehow you just put tearing up a pee pad into a whole different perspective.

We'll be thinkin' aboutcha, Bonnie, in hopes that everydoggie and everybody makes up soon. We're sure she'll forgive you. You are too cute to stay mad at for too long.

And... oh dear. It's out there for all of blogland to read. Lacie wets the bed! Oh. The danger of public comments! She'll be hearing about this!)

Love ya, Bonnie,
Fergi and Jake ooxx
