This is Pele (named for the soccer star). He's my daughter's dog. He's about 70 lbs, and this is his typical position. What a great life, eh?

And he's been in this position for at least an hour. Must be comfy, eh? :teehee:

Well, I was actually sitting on a stool, with my laptop on one of our end tables...positioned in front of the couch (I took the picture with the camera on my laptop). My son sat on the other couch. Yep...two couches...only one usable by humans, though. :teehee:

My goodness doggie, what big teeth you have??? NOT!

That big marshmallow looks like the most he ever bites is a nice juicy chew bone.

Are his eyes brown? He is a cutie.

One piece of advice? Get another couch for those pesky human things that keep cluttering up HIS livingroom LOL.

Yep...Pele is just one big teddy bear. We often crawl on the couch with him when he's like that and just hug him. :heart:

He usually sleeps on our other couch, which is regular-sized. He was sleeping on the love seat last night...which is not near big enough for him and a regular person.

Hey man, life is rough--give a dog a break! Think about his stressful day: hand fed yummy meals and treats, extended sessions of playful romping, naps, maybe a few strenuous dreams of chasing squirrels and bunnies. Boy, I'm exhausted just thinking about it! :teehee:

Does he snore? I love it when dogs snore. Cooper zonks out and snores, then he lets loose this biiiiiiiig sighs while he readjusts himself. Like--wow, the couch had the audacity to grow a lump and now he must reposition himself. :rofl:

:roflhard: Cute! He's a beautiful dog.

side note, my cat snores. And he moans and chirps, sighs and twitches but only if he's sleeping on my lap.

I'm calling the humane society right now. This puppy is obviously in distress, this is why he had to change position. Let's free Pele and get him a bigger couch! :teehee:

Oh sometimes I wished I was a dog in a family like yours! :lol:

To clear the record, Pele usually sleeps on the BIG couch. I have no idea why he chose the other one...probably because I had set up shop right in front of it.

What we need to do is take up a collection so that Auburnchick's family can have a couch to themselves!

Pele has totally ruined us. Before we adopted him (yes...from our local animal shelter), we had ONE well-behaved dog who was not allowed to roam around the house or get on furniture. Pele was so cute when he climbed on the couch that we didn't have the heart to move him. Now, he thinks he OWNS the couches (not to mention the rest of the house)!

I did buy the dogs a $90 large, thick foam bed, which my older dog just adores. Pele sleeps on it sometimes, but his favorite is the couch. Go figure.

Oh, and he does snore a bit. Last night, he sounded like he was having bad dreams, so I would gently pet him to try to make him happy, and then he would start growling. Strange critter...this one.

I feel your pain. My parents SPCA dog who is now 12 is a shephard/dobbie mix (really long) sleeps on the couch and they used to have a HUGE couch so all was well. Then they got this little loveseat thing with recliners built in that nobody ever gets to use b/c dear dog needs his spot and really doesn't like to be crowded !!
In my house the new SPCA "boxer" has claimed my recliner so I have to move her over to have room to sit and knit ! She will get up and pout for a bit, but always comes right back to snuggle up or steal a tissue.

Gotta love the puppers

Pele probably thought the foam bed was for YOU guys, and he had the rest! :lol: I just love the way pets can take over a house. The dog I had when I was a teenager would sleep in my bed at night. Very quickly, the bed became hers, and every night I had to fight with her to get some space. :teehee:

LOL, that pup has been taking lessons from my cats!

Had one that adopted my husbands desk chair and would give him the dirtiest looks and meow plaintively whenever he caught DH sitting in it. Our current cat loves DH's recliner during the day, but at 3:PM, when I get hubby up for work, the cat goes into the bedroom and appropriates the King-sized bed.

(The cat, my german shepherd, and the kitten that was dumped along the highway out front a couple months back also realize that yoga is just an excuse for me to lay on the floor with them--they come running and sprawl out with me...the dogs with his head on my shoulder and the cats on my chest and legs.:inlove: )
