Quite often, Rugby loves to sleep sunny side up…letting it all hang out! When he’s allowed on the furniture with me, he can be a bit rude….a space invader. When he sleeps, he either curls up into a tight little ball, or he sprawls all over…letting those long legs kick and push to get additional space.
As a result, at times, I have resorted to using a dog bed on the sofa, letting Rugby sleep in his bed so that I can have my own space on the sofa without having to fight for it! Generally, he likes this idea, and he will often curl up tightly into his bed that is two sizes too small, and he’s a happy camper.
On this particular day, he started out curled up into a little ball, and as the nap evolved, Rugby started a slow but steady sprawl into my space on the sofa. He’s still making the most of his bed, but taking up two of the three cushions on the sofa! For a little 23 pound dog, that’s a bit impressive!
But what I absolutely love about this photo, and what makes me snicker every time I see it, is the fact that he was sound asleep with his front legs sticking straight up into the air….and crossed….as if he was trying to earn extra points for style!
The photo quality is not terrific….not all phones take good photos, and this older phone didn’t do such a great job for me. But it’s enough to give you the idea, and I hope you’ll smile all the same!!
