Daisy is one of the most fickle dogs I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I have had a large blanket that all of the dogs shared. When Buford died Daisy refused to allow Max to lay with her very often on the big blanket. I decided to rearrange the furniture in the living room and to get rid of the blanket and just put the blankets in open door crates for the dogs to lay on in the same room.
These are the same crates that they sleep in at night. Daisy was doing fine for the few days and then she suddenly refused to get into the crate during the day. She became very needy and was obviously very stressed over not having the blanket.
Tonight I went to the store and bought 2 new dog beds so that she would stop growling and snapping at Max if he wanted to sleep beside her. I gave Daisy the red bed and Max the brown bed.
What do you think my little fickle dog did after about 10 minutes?
Daisy got off of her own red bed and got in the bed with Max. Go figure. After about 10 minutes Max left his bed and now he is sleeping on the red bed. I wonder how long this game of musical beds will go on.
Poor Max. All he wants is to help me cook and a soft bed to sleep in. He really is a good dog unless he is left alone in the house with a bowl of suckers. GRRR Now I have to scrub the couch to get the sticky off of it. Don’t ask!!
