Bertie's complaint


When we came home from our run yesterday we looked for our beds because we were tired but they had all been moved into the kitchen. There was talk of washing all the bedding. I don’t know why Mrs Boss does it, just when we’ve got it smelling the way we like it. Anyway, we decided we’d leave the comfort of the sitting room with its warm fire and slum it in the kitchen.

It wasn’t too bad because the bedding was next to our freezer. (We have our own freezer for all our food. It makes sense. Boss and Mrs have theirs and we have ours.) 
Frodo came with me to keep me company and we were soon fast asleep and dreaming.
 Then Gus barked and woke me up – he frightened me. 
So I cuddled up next to Frodo and I was able to relax again. Frodo looks as though he’s got devil eyes in this photo but he’s all right, really. 
We were soon asleep once more.
I don’t know what happened next but I woke up to find Gus had taken my place and pushed me onto the floor – the floor without any bedding. That was a bit mean but I am the youngest, nearly eight months old, and Gus was here before me and he really likes Frodo. It was quite brave of Gus, really, because that noisy floor-cleaning thing was nearby and he's frightened of that but Frodo was between it and him so I suppose that was all right.

ps: I must admit clean bedding does feel nice and it doesn’t smell bad, either, so I don’t think I’ll complain again, not about that, anyway. 


pps: Jenna was on a chair somewhere, naughty girl!

  1. Oh, Bertie, you may be the youngest but you're taller than Jenna and even Gus. Soon you might be as big as Frodo. He does look like a nice comfy sleeping partner, though, and I know his red eyes aren't scary. I have to sleep alone. Isn't that sad? Maybe you'd like to come to Canada, and I'd share my bed with you?
    Love, Lindy
    PS—If Mrs. Boss hasn't told you about me, I am a short, plump Golden Retriever. You'd really be taller than I am, but I am nice and warm.

  2. Bertie says: I'd love to sleep with you, Lindy, you're my sort of colour and it's always good to snuggle up to someone warm. I've seen your photos and you've got lots of lovely curls.

  8. The bedding might be nice and 'clean' but I think laundry soap stinks. I abandon anything 'washed' for months. When it has a nice layer of dust and all those chemicals have evaporated, it is fit for a cat once again. I always knew dogs were different.

  9. Hi Bertie! You look so comfortable all snuggled up with with Frodo. If Gus pushes you off onto the cold floor again you can come over and sleep with us kitties. We will all pile on top of you so you will be nice and warm.
    Purrs,

  12. Susannah, thank you. They think they're adorable too;-)
    ChrisJ - they are contented once they've been exercised and fed:-)
    Belle - they are fond of each other but also jealous, so if one is being petted the others will demand attention too - just like small children!
    Macc - there's no denying that cats and dogs are different;-)
    Jeremy, thank you:-)
    Cindi Lou and the Kitty Krew - Bertie says thank you very much and he'll bear it in mind.
    Dave, thank you.

  16. Mo, it's a dog's life and if they're lucky it's a good life. Sadly, too many are abandoned.

  22. Humans have another taste of smell, now doubt about that, but you all look so cute sleeping together !

  23. I guess there's something to be said for the old phrase "Let sleeping dogs lie"!

  24. Too true, Kathy. The washing was held up for quite some time since I couldn't possibly disturb the dogs;-)
