On the couch between the Momz and Dadz at TV time in the evening is prime real estate around here. We usually have to referee Luke and Cricket; whoever gets there first does not want to let the other one up to join us.
If Cricket is there she lets out a snarl when Luke sticks his nose up there. If Luke is first, low growls are heard from him when Cricket is looking to jump up. The kind of funny thing is that Cricket’s snarls will deter Luke (he’ll usually go to the chair instead), but Luke’s growls don’t scare Cricket one bit. Usually to keep the peace I’ll encourage her to climb up on the other side of me.
That was fine to start, but there was no way she was staying there. The beagle almost always gets what she wants, we don’t call her The Princess for nothing.
They learn to compromise, and next thing you know this is happening.
It wasn’t that long ago that I shared the two girls snuggling out on the patio. Now I just need to get a photo of Sheba and Luke snuggling and we’ll have all three combinations. When in the living room, Sheba prefers to sleep on the floor while Luke likes the couch or chair, so I have a better chance of catching them together at night on our bed. Stay tuned!
