I'm A Lucky Boy!


1. The dog is not allowed in the house.

2. Okay, the dog is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.

3. The dog is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.

4. The dog can get on the old furniture only.

5. Fine, the dog is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.

6. Okay, the dog is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.

I made it to number 6! What a lucky boy I am. This is the same pa who apparently used to have a "no dogs UPSTAIRS rule"! He's gone soft in my old age!

Ma, put the bloomin' camera away, men trying to sleep here!

Sweet dreams!

Now I just need to work on numbers 7 to 10!

7. The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the covers.

8. The dog can sleep under the covers by invitation only.

9. The dog can sleep under the covers every night.

10. Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the dog.

I am only at rule #6 in our house too. If you get to

Ferndoggle said...

What a great pic of you & your Dad snuggling in bed! I get too hot under the covers but I always worm my way into the snuggle spot.


Boo said...

harry! you make it to the bed! well, my human always wanted me to sleep on their bed but bcoz we don't have a/c (that was before we move to the current house) i don't like getting on the warm bed. i prefer to sleep on the floor.

now that we have a/c in the room, i sleep right next to mom in the corner. dad gets jealous allllllll the time coz i only sleep next to mom. lol.

the cow is not allowed on the bed tho coz he PEE PEE on it - few times!

btw harry, due to my "laziness" i have missed yr b'day celebration. HAPPY BELATED B'DAY!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Harry!
You rule with the rules!
I love those pictures of you and your pa sleeping there! You two look adorable!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

I am already at 10, be firm my friend, you will get there. One tip, you may be bounced back to 4 if you get into bed with poop on your paws or your behind, just be warned!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Stanley said...

Ahhhhh, Harry Boy!

Looks to me like your Pa can't sleep without ya! Keep on moving up that list! Before you know it you will OWN that bed.

You're very cute when you're lying down.

Goober love,

Pippa said...

That's very smart. Master used to have silly ideas like that but I soon fixed him - well with the sofa anyway. I haven't bothered with the bed. Perhaps I should - you look one comfy Dale.

Faya said...

Woooohoooo bien joué Harry ! Tu es rapide. Moi j'ai attendu presque 18 mois pour oser aller dans le lit .... mais maintenant j'y suis !
Bisous champion ! Faya


Oh Harry you are a lucky boy! Those pictures are great. Good luck with the rest of the rules 7 through 10. We are free to go almost everywhere in the apartment but not the bedroom. They put up a gate on the door!! But on Saturdays and Sundays we are allowed to get into bed with mum and dad for a few hours before they get up and we love it! As for the furniture we have claimed the sofa as our own!
Jazz and Dixie
P.S. We put some sun in the post for you today. The woman at the post office says it will take about a week to get there.

Mango said...

I need to take lessons from you, dude, I'm not even allowed to enter the bedroom (maybe has something to do with the sock eating incident, but it WAS on the floor).

Patience-please said...

Congratulations, Harry. I am at rule # 10, and you will be soon, as well. Once you hit #6, and are of a certain venerable age, no worthy human can resist. Or should, for that matter. I've found that passive resistance and feigned sleep and dead weight are helpful teaching tools.

best of luck!

Peanut said...

You will make it. I am at 10 when I want to be. Sometimes the covers are just to hot so I just flop my big ol self across mom's legs.

Simba said...

I'm on number 10 and writing my own rules now. I never knew training humans was so easy. Mummy is very glad I'm a small dog, seeing how much room you take up lol.

I have added a rule #11 no cats on the bed when I am in bed with mommy and daddy. It is all about ME after all.

2shibas said...

OMD! We've been MIA for so long and we just came to your blog and saw Cassidy's pic - we can't believe how big she's gotten! What a beautiful girl she's growing into! (And you're as handsome as ever, Harry!)

Wiley & Fievel

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Strong work, Harry!!! You and ur dad look so comfy snugglin' in that soft beddie!!

Do they let Cassidy up there???

Scruffy ruined our bed chances. Mumsie let him up as a pup and he chewed a hole right through her new blanket.

We're in crates. Period. It stinks.

Good work - and good luck getting to 10!! I made it to number 10 in a matter of weeks I think - but funnily enough I was allowed on the big bed BEFORE they'd let me on the lounge!!!


Pacco de Mongrel said...

sad to say that i only manage to make myself into no. 3...

but i will never give up...

Koobuss said...

Those are great rules, Harry. I have the same ones in my house. I think that you are going to make it all the way to Number 9, but I really don't think that you are going to make it to 10. Good luck though!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
