Doesn't every Warrior Princess sleep on an embroidered pillow?

At my house, the swift warrior princess sleeps anywhere she wants!  And lately, that's been some pretty odd places.  When I get out of that darn cone of shame, I try to slip away and  sleep where no one can find me.
Behind the sofa worked for a day or two.   In the closet was good, till I got confused and ...ummm...pee'd on the quilt she had stacked in there.   And a couple of evening gowns.  And a shoe.  And this reallllly fugly purse that just needed to go.  Basically, anything of HERS, since she is the one strapping me in that THING.

Last night I wouldn't sleep in the big bed, even though she left off the cone thingy.   I first tried the bench at the foot of the bed.  Then I went into my crate and re-arranged everything and humphed at her and turned my back on the world.   When they finally got to sleep, I moved under the bed and found me a nice place up where SHE hides the good whiskey from the Idiot Marine and his buddies.  She doesn't care if they drink the cheap stuff,  but says there is just something wrong with mixing Diet Coke and premium whiskey.   Everything was going just fine until early this morning when I decided to clean the bottles where dribbles had run down.  Apparently Ms. Light Sleeper heard the bottles clinking around and got suspicious.   It took her a whole handful of cookies to coax me out from under the bed.

Now, in this photo, what you can't see is the coffee table.  It is metal and glass topped, with bands running around it on all sides.  It makes the perfect escape hatch.  If she comes near me with that THING, I can dart under the table and she can't get me.  It's big enough I can dart from side to side and it's heavy enuff she can't pick it up easily.  I don't normally sleep on the floor. That's where Puffy the ancient sleeps and I am sooooo above all that.  I prefer the sofa where I can jump on him if I need to. But she's pretty quick for a woman of that age, and can usually catch me up there.  

So for now, the swift warrior princess is keeping her options open and has a clear escape plan in place. There's just so much low calorie kibble and humiliating cones a terrier can stand before strange things start happening.   KWIM?

Oh no, you are still strapped in the cone head during the day?!?
That no good. How much longer??
You keep hiding away from her. God knows what she will think of doing to ya all sleep-drunken and cookie-filled...

Martha and Bailey said...

We just hate those cones too! Is it any wonder you pee'd in the closet!
Any girl would do the same - sometimes you just have to let the world know you are not a happy bunny..........or in this case, doggy!
We loved the idea of you cleaning the whiskey bottles - in fact a wee dram might be just the thing although we hate the taste of it ourselves.
Get better soon!

Poor Bonnie.
it's so unfair!
You can share my bed with me if you like. the whole sofa is for me!
You'd love the pretty flowers, princess Bonnie.

Love, Bella.

Sounds like some doggie is getting the cabinet fever. Hang in there little princess. Wear the cone briefly now or wear it for a long time later. I fear those are your options.

We thought you'd be out of the conehead thingy by now!! But we definitely think swift warrior princesses should sleep on embroidered pillows, Egyptian high thread count sheets and be covered with beautiful handmade quilts. And it she's not doing it, give us a call - another dog in the house would give us an even number.

Headed to go check and see what under OUR big bed. We've never looked.

Go Warrior Princess. Sometimes you just have to let the world know how you feel. We're right behind you.

How's the toe, BTW?

Goodness, I can't believe you are still having to wear that thing! You deserve to sleep on an embroidered pillow when you have escaped the humiliation for even a short time! Do you think we should head your way to put a line of corgis between you and her? The Country Corgi Crew

Bobby said...

To wear the lamp shade for so long is torture I would pee too.

BRUTUS said...

Still wearing that blasted thing? You poor girl... You should be able to sleep anywhere you want, on anything you want after having to endure such humiliation!!

I saw your pretty wheaten face on Eric Square Dog's blog and couldn't resist bouncing over to say hi! Yeah, those satellite dishes are a bummer. Glad you get out of yours now and then to get some rest.

Happy Tails,

Hi Bonnie, me warrior princess lass!!! You are just adorable!!! Hmmmmm...the cone....I'm so sorry. Me thinks that you should try this: Run around really fast and bump into your hoomans' walls several times--not hard enough to hurt yourself, but hard enough to leave marks on their beautifully painted walls. THEN, your mom will go and buy one of those soft cones for you. The best part of THAT kind of cone is ANY terrier can find their way outa that thing. But don't let them know that you can get out. That's what I did. Well, until she found me outa the soft cone. Then she put me back in the.....okay scratch that. You're gonna have to wear the cone, girlie. Sorry for the rambling.

Me thinks all dogs deserve an embroidered pillow!!!

Oh, and yes, that pawfume is expensive, but it only takes 1 squirt to last for days. Me mom buys their body spray called "Fresh" for us to use all the time and it is only about twenty bucks. The pawfume will last for at least a year because we don't use it that often. I'm worth it-what can I say?
