Somebody's been sleeping in my bed

Joey and Zoe had this little basket bed. We kept it under the desk − prime real estate as it's right by mommy's feet and protected from the breeze of the ceiling fan. As they grew bigger, they were always fighting over it.

When the brand new Ace Hardware store opened at Christmas time, we found a slighter larger doggie bed so both of them could use it at the same time.

Plenty of room for both. They make good foot warmers under the desk, too.

Poor Chloe the Rottweiler/Doberman was jealous. Here is a picture of an 80 lb. (36 kg.) dog curled up in an 18" x 12" (30 x 46 cm.) doggie bed.

For comparison purposes, here's a picture of an 8 lb. (3.6 kg.) dog in the bed.

After kicking her out of it many times, she finally gave up and found something else:

The chicken coop! We have the coop on the terraza, waiting for the wood to dry so that we can paint it before the chickens start using it. Chloe has started climbing in the little tiny window every night. She likes it just fine and it's a good fit for her. El Jefe says that now we need a night guard because Chloe's taking every night off now sleeping in her new digs instead of guarding the property.

Before you start feeling too sorry for Chloe, you should know that she had a very nice rattan bed that fit her perfectly. She chewed it up, bit by bit, until I was afraid that she was going to poke an eye out from all the sticks that were left pointing up around the edges.

Then I gave her a nice big pillow and she proceeded to eat the pillow cases one by one.
