Turn About Is Not Fair Play!

A certain guide dog named Nash hogged my entire bed last night, and kept me up to 5 or 6 am. When it gets that late, I am afraid to look at the clock. Nash was hogging my entire bed. He usually lays by my feet, and I can sleep ok, but last night he decided to lay by my back, and instead of lying vertical like me, he was lying horizontal. Not fair. I would gently push him over, and it would give me a little room, and I thought I was eventually falling asleep, but then of course, I would have to get up to go to the bathroom, and I would get back into bed, and there was Nash hogging the entire bed again. Needless to say, I did not get a good night sleep. At least Nash does not wake me up in the morning, as he lets me sleep in, and today, we slept in pretty late, or at least I slept in pretty late. When I woke up, Nash was pretty much on top of me, saying feed me seymour. I guess he is a fan of Little Shop of Horrors.


Late this afternoon, Nash was lying down in his bed for a nap, so I figured I would get him back. I went over to him in his bed, and I got into it with him and decided to take up half of his bed, which I did, and then I was gently laying on top of him. HOW DO LIKE IT? Well, Nash did like it, as he put his front paw on my chest and began licking my face, and rolled over for a belly rub. NOT FAIR! How do you get a dog back for hogging your bed when he likes it when you hog his bed? I tried to sink to his level, but he is obviously smarter than me, so I am open to suggestions.

    Brian – you will never win!!! He is definitely the boss. Although not sure guide dogs are supposed to be the boss but Nash is unique and cute.

    I’ve got an idea: Sleep in Nash’s bed and wake him up every time he tries to get it back! How would he like it then? Maybe he’ll learn after a couple of nights and or days of not very good sleep that that’s what you go through when he takes over your bed! Another thing you could do is just gently but firmly push him otu of your bed or simply don’t let him have a nice sleep in ti! Keep waking him up whenever you get up, don’t give him the chance to relax every time he tries to hog your bed and see what happens! It may take you at least two weeks for Nash to get the message.. But in the end, have a laugh!

    Hey Michelle, that seems like it would be a little to mean to Nash. I did find a solution, at least for last night, as I fell asleep on the couch, and when I woke up, sure enough, there was Nash asleep in my bed, and sleeping where I sleep. We will have to see what happens tonight, as I need to let Nash know that I am the boss!
