Spicy my ferret - my baby - crossed the rainbow bridge on November 9th. I have been praying every day for the past year that God would give me more time with her. Now stress eating - gained back 5 lbs. It seems the joy in the house is gone!

Duh, I knew you had a cat, LizMari - not sure why I thought he was a dog this time! My step-son had a Pomeranian named Romeo for years 'n years so maybe I just mis-associated... or something Freudian maybe?

Lee - cute Teddy... do you have any scars from putting the 'hat' on him? .

Here is Vampire Teddy.

hahahaha Romeo is a kitty... and he loves sleeping under blankies and he gets himself all wrapped up in there all by himself. He was sleeping when I started bugging him, waking him up. lol

Too funny, Lizmari.... try motivating him with "Supper's Ready!" Clearly, he doesn't seem to care whether he gets out of that blankie or not.
Sucha cruel trick, locking the door to the blanket-tent and not telling the pooch the secret combination to the lock.... mean mean mean ;-)))
So, what's the number for the SPCA where you are?

Romeo, napping under the blanket, when I wake him up... Then he gets stuck, and can't get out. lol

Oh alimar, that is so sad. My mother in law passed at home in her own bed. Her dog, Dodger, would not leave her side, it broke our hearts when we had to drag her off of the bed in order to move her. It broke our hearts.

We used to keep our Jack Russell Mutley off the bed until one night, the late Mr M came home from the rugby club in a "mellow" mood - let Mutley snuggle down with him - I told Mutley to get down only to be told "S'alright... " Needless to say, he slept on the bed with us from then on - although it was heartbreaking after Mr M passed - we'd come back to the UK for the holidays and left Mutley and his new little pal Radar in kennels, but sadly Mr M passed away very suddenly over Xmas. When I got back to the US and got the "boys" out of the kennels, Mutley insisted on staying up to wait for his dad to come home. He finally settled down on his dad's side of the bed but I will never forget that sad, puzzled look on Mutley's face - he adored his dad - we lived in a split level in the US, so Mr M would come in the front door and up the stairs and Mutley would be sitting there behind the wrought iron screen to give him a big welcoming kiss!

Lots of shots, what a cutie! For us, it is a losing battle to keep them off of the furniture/bed. We live in a split level, the secong your on a different level, there she is, making a nice cozy warm spot on the coach or bed!
