Who's The Boss?

Hello chaps and chapesses, I hope you're all doing jolly well. We are thoroughly enjoying receiving all these Christmas cards. We need to take some photos of all the latest ones received, then we can post about it. Ma says she'll help us get ours all in envelopes and posted after her exam tomorrow!

Now then, I'm an older boy as you know, and I like to sleep. I'd say I probably sleep the majority of the time when I'm not eating, snuggling or going for walkies. The vet said it's fine, and if I eat well (and do I ever!) and like my walkies, then to leave me to it. But a good old snooze requires a comfy bed wouldn't you say? Especially when one has achy legs? So why am I struggling to fit myself onto this little cushion bed?

Because Madame Cassidy has deemed that her puppy self should have MY comfy spongy bed to repose on, that's why! I mean, even stretched out, she clearly doesn't need that huge expanse of cushiony loveliness.

But because I'm a gentleman, far be it for me to shove her off her princess bed. I'll make do with the little bed. Truth be told, I could probably sleep on a washing line, but there we go! I fear it's becoming clear who is going to be the boss!

Or maybe I could gently encourage her to sleep in here more often?

By the way, have you noticed how fast Cassidy is growing? She's like a little weed! This first photo is taken at 8 weeks.

And this one is at 10 weeks. Yes, she's got her legs more stretched out here, but it's still clear to see that she's grown.

And here she is yesterday at 12 weeks. Her legs seem to be growing faster than anything, but I suppose it will all balance out in the end!

Toodle pip,

Harry x

Us older dogs always sleep a lot.

She is getting big mind.

I too would recommend the sofa to escape from madam.


Graham, Prince & Tilly said...

Poor Harry - perhaps Santa will bring another big bed so that you can have one each?!!

Ruby Bleu said...

You certainly are a gentleman Harry!!! But I think if you explain to Princess, oops I mean Cassidy, that she will totally understand! She's a smart, sweet girl and loves you very much, I don't think she would mind at all.

And my she is growing fast!!!! Pretty soon she'll outgrow her little bed so maybe the solution is to ask your pawrents for another big bed...just a thought!

Lots of Licks,Ruby

Faya said...

Harry tu es vraiment parfait ! Le mâle idéal ! Vraiment j'admire ta patience avec la petite Cassidy. C'est rare de nos jours de trouver encore un tel gentleman !
Bisous, Faya

Peanut said...

Oh my goodness you are ever the gentleman I don't know that I would let her take over my bed. Cassidy sure is growing though. Her legs seem to double in size every two weeks.

Maggie & Mitch said...

That scene looks pretty familiar to me, Harry! Cassidy is thinking everything is HERS just like Mitch thinks everything here is HIS! You and I are both sharing, loving sibs! You'd think they would have some compassion for us, wouldn't you?!

Love ya lots,

Tofu Burger said...

Oh Boi she sure is growing! How nice of you to squeeeeeeze yourself into that teensy weensy cushion. Perhaps you can persuade ma and pa to spring for a big big bed for Harry? hmmmm


Ferndoggle said...

You are more of a man than I am Harry. MY bed...all of them.

Cassidy is really getting long! It's really fun to watch her grow.


Gus said...

OOH, it is amazing how fast puppies grow, isn't it. But I think you should have a talk with her, otherwise you might end up with another Teka!

Jake of Florida said...

We think everything should be equal -- so hold out for a second big bed. Cassidy can sleep in only one at a time, so regardless of which one she has, you can have the other.

And as fast as Cassidy's growing, pretty soon even she won't fit into the little spot! Unless she can curl up real small, the way we do sometime. But those are pretty long legs!!!

Woofs to you both,

Jake and Just Harry

Lorenza said...

Hi, Harry
Sure you are gentleman!
Sleeping is not a matter of age... I love to sleep a lot too!
Cassidy is growing pretty fast! In body and attitude!
Have a good night

Patience-please said...

Hello, Harry. It's about time we introduced our skinny selves. We're the whippets from Kentucky. The next time Cassidy steals your bed just lie on top of her! Puppies are soft - we know! Two of us are just your age, and some of us are younger, and two of us are older.
We are so happy that you found such a GREAT home to nap in.

Hi Harry,
Gee... You are a true gentleman! I hope Madame Cassidy knows what a lucky pup she is to have a big brother like you!!

Oh my, she's really grown SO MUCH!

long legged dog r potential agility dog...

Joe Stains said...

you really are a gentleman, I would not have that kind of self control because DANG does your bed look comfy! Cassidy sure is growing, I can't wait to see how big she finally ends up being!

Snowball said...

Harry, You are such as gentleman. I think you are still the in control being a gentleman, you will let a little lady like her get away with what she is doing so long as she do not go overboard.

I can see how much Cassidy is growing. Everyday, she is going to grow bigger and learn new things. Thats the mst exciting part about having a pup at home.


Molly and Taffy said...

Hello Harry

Yes you are indeed a true gentleman. If Cassidy is going to snuggle up on your big cushion and claim it as her own do you think you could ask Santa Paws to bring you another bigger fluffier one, so that you can continue to have undisturbed, comfortable slumber?

You really are a gentleman doggie Harry. I dont think a washing line will be comfy to sleep on.
I wish your mom all the best in her exams. :)

Noah the Airedale said...

Ah yes, I can see all the signs starting to appear. Basically Harry, you've lost control and Cassidy is in the process of a take over. You are just about in my world now. Give her a few more weeks.
I'm here if you need to talk.


Simba said...

I'd put her in the box and shut the lid if she stole my bed. What a gentle and loving brother you are. I'm so glad I'm an only King.

Hi Harry,
What a gentle dog you are, sharing your big bed like that. We think you could both fit on it though. We have a big cushion like that which we share when we are not sleeping on mum and dad's sofa. I also love my zzz's and recently mum is having trouble getting me to come out of my crate in the morning to go for walkies.
Your little sis sure is growing fast!

Amber-Mae said...

You sure are a gentle brudder. Oh yeah, I can see the difference! She sure has grown longer!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Frasier said...

That is sad,sad,sad !!Mommy laughed at you all scrunched up into a little ball and Cassidy all stretched out!!

Fiona said...

Hi Harry, we have never "met" but have been following you for a while now and what a handsome chap you are ! Tolerant too :o)
Hope you don't mind, but you've been tagged. The rules are at Yogi's place if you'd care to have a look....

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

Lovely leggy pics! Hey, Harry, get your Mama to check out my Blog, I have sent your Mama a Rose!

Arabella said...

I'm sorry Harry but you know it just means that your parents will feel extra sorry for you and give you and your poor bones lots of extra love.

Ben_Benjamin said...

She is the QUEEN of the HOUSE !!! OMdoG, Cassidy's bed is sooooooooooo big....or she is too small for that?? But obviously, your bed is too small for you.

Stella said...

Sweet Mr. Harry!

Thank you thank you for let my Cassie fren sleep on the big bed. You are sweet older gentleman pup and I love you for being good boy to my Cassie!

Hey, Cassie Girl!

You are growing so fast! You are already bigger than I will EVER be, but we're still frens, righty?

I tagged you to play a game. Please come to my place & see what it's all about.

Gooby love & tiny kissies to you,

Finni said...

That's girl power for you - always insisting on the best place. Cassidy certainly is growing! My mum said when I was that age she watched me have a stretch and swears my limbs stayed stretched and didn't go back to their original short size!
Actually I like curling up in little places too. They can be really cosy, and that cushion of yours sure looks soft!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

You are really a nice brother to let Cassidy sleep on your bed.

We can see that Cassidy is growing real fast. We think she is bigger than us now.

Mojo said...

Oh Harry, you're such a pushover for the little ladies! Still, I expect turfing her off your bed will only wake up those piranha teeth, so I can understand why discretion is the better part of valour.

Cassidy is growing so fast! My parents loved it when I became all legs - so funny, they said.
