Email I received this morning regarding the behavior of my dog while I was off being tortured

so i'm up early this morning, buzzing around, trying to put the house together in a vain attempt at achieving a peaceful existence over here, and it dawns on me that zinni is nowhere to be found. figuring it would be just my luck for zinni to be lying dead in the middle of the road directly in front of my house, i check the street, but thank god, no zinni. then i check all the usual places--the piles of laundry in the basement, my lovely creamy white sofa, the lush (formerly cream) shag rug--alas, no dog. then i hear a little puppy sigh of bliss which sounds like it could be coming from upstairs. i search the piles of laundry in various rooms, and alas no dog. where could this 100 pounds of soft, wispy black hair be hiding, for god's sake? i crack open the door of my bedroom, squint in the darkness to see madeleine and...what???? the ever so comfy, ever so snuggly, zinni, who is practically UNDER the lovely yellow down covers, deep in the sleep of toddlers on their way home from disney world. evidentally everyone on the planet--including small children and large black dogs--prefers 400 thread count sheets.honestly, guys, he looked like a goddamn william wegman portrait. maybe zinni needs an agent. i guess he must have figured after days of being subject to the drama world of madeleine where she makes kubrik look like a cake walk, he can sleep anywhere he damn well pleases.

Our dog - while much smaller than Zinni - used to sleep in our bed - on her back, head on the pillow - I swear that she thinks she is human... and if the dog goes through the tortures of children... let him sleep wherever he pleases....lol

I have two dogs that sleep in our bed and one that cuddles up on the couch. One takes the whole bed and and the other growls and farts if you even look like you want to shove him off his corner of the bed.

....and you thought Zinni was a dumb dog....he is so onto you - bet he has been sleeping on that bed longer than you think!

That is such a sweet picture! Our ninety pound black lab sleeps with us and is so spoiled. Being the first "child" has its benefits.

Too bad you didn't take a picture to post! Have a relaxing weekend :)
