For example, here, Samuel and Abby are on my couch. Abby just recently has been able to get back ON my couch since her knee surgeries that began over a year ago. So here she is laying in MY spot on my couch. That's Sam's usually spot, so I guess that's ok. Well, at least I'll put up with it.
Here's dad laying in Sam's spot, so he had to lay in my spot. Notice the unfavorable look Sam is giving dad for being in his spot.
Here I am in MY spot, and Abby is in Sam's. He usually doesn't like anyone in his spot, but he loves Abby (he grew up with her so she's his best friend) so he lets her lay there.
This is usually how the couch looks....me and Sam hogging the whole thing. Dad sometimes sits between us, but usually there isn't enough room, so we make him sit on the floor. Mom usually has the recliner, and there's no way she's giving that up.
But, if I had my way, this is how the couch would always look.
Notice how skinny I look. This was my second day at my new house after being rescued from the corn field and starving to death. As you can see, I was making myself right at home, right away. But, think about it, isn't this life with the nice big house, nice yard, nice patio with a nice big step to lay on, and beds to sleep on, and my own nice couch with a nice soft blankie to lay on, pretty much the best thing any girl (or boy) could ever ask for? I even have plenty of food to eat! Which has led to my, ummm, "weight" problem. But at least I get walks almost every day to help with that issue.
Oh well, fat, happy, and comfy. Just the way I like it. :-)
