That’s my dog for ya. He’s utterly spoiled. Each of us has taken a part in the reason why he is this way. I take my ownership in this. One of the things that I have done is let him sleep in our bed. The second part of that is over time I have helped hi. By lifting his big behind up onto the bed after he gets his front paws on the bed. Well a few weeks ago he was ill and really having a hard time with his arthritis. So one night I had to pick his whole body up and put him on the bed at least 2 or 3 times.
Since then he thinks that is what I am supposed to do. I haven’t and have made him jump up by himself, which he is capable of doing. Tonight he wanted to revert back to me picking him up. I was willing to assist but not going to do the whole thing. So I was whispering to him to get up like I always do. At some point I must have woken my husband up. I didn’t realize this. Well Cash wouldn’t out his paws up on the bed, so I got into bed. He started walking around the bed, his claws clacking on the wood floor. My husband pushes up from his position and snarls at me “you woke me up and he’s still walking g around the bed!” I said “he wouldn’t get up.” So he repeats himself. I say “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to wake you up.” I get out of bed and lift my dog up onto the bed, rather forcefully, then get back into bed.
Now I am good and pissed. So I am writing about it. Yes, I understand he gets up early. Yes, I understand it sucks to be woken up.
FYI, my dog is a 6 year old rottweiler who weighs 100 lbs. Love him to death and generally I like him more than I like most people. That includes the sleeping person.
Goodnight all. Tomorrow is a new day. Your slightly less irritated Royal Purple Queen.
