    omg. My dog does the same thing! She starts off in her bed, because she is not “allowed” to sleep in the bed, but when I am fast asleep, she turns into a ninja and stealthfully finds herself space between my legs and goes to sleep. And she WILL NOT MOVE! When my dog gets into bed before me, she also tries her ninja moves. She lays on her back as I tug on her to get her off of the bed. From there, she stretches one of her back paws all the way up until it jams into my throat while delivering a low moan. No, not a growl like a normal dog, a very monotone moan. Ninja pup. I have not had a good night’s sleep in a year and a half. I totally feel your pain.

    I hope you get a better night’s sleep…
    I have my own 70 pound canine bed stealer. Unfortunately my husband loves having her on the bed (she doesn’t sleep on his side…). I was laughing when you said yours hoped up there and pretended to be deaf when you tried to get her to move, b/c that is what mine does. Every night when I’m brushing my teeth. They must learn it at dog school – LOL.

    LOL! They must learn this at dog school–or dog conventions or whatever they do when we aren’t around.

    No-no Lulu always raises her incredibly long legs up and bops me in the head. Fortunately, she sleeps at the foot of the bed, unlike Kirby who has to be as close as possible to any human. Thank goodness the hubs is home now. I froze last night, but at least I was in the bed the entire night :)

    Wow…sigh brings back memories….My dog a golden retriever aka(hurricane-when she was bored). Learned this trick AGES ago when we had her… would come upstairs in the dead of night and jump up into my bed. Now unlike your bed, mine was against a wall…so being the “princess” that she was…would finagle her way between me and the bed, and then bracing her legs against the wall, push me off the bed slowly of course as NOT to wake me, onto the lower mattress or the floor…often my mom would ME on the floor and my dog sprawled on my bed…and then yes like a 1,200 boulder, she would NOT get off even with all the pulling and pushing….sigh dogs…(this wasn’t even close to her opening locked doors, garbage cans, mooching off our neighbors and knowing where to hide when she was in trouble….)

    Hilarious. I can totally relate. My dog is only 20 pounds as well, yet lays smack in the middle of the bed, or on top of my legs. Pushing her is too much effort in the middle of the night. We love our furry little beasties.

  6. Laurie Says:

    LOL. We do love our little doggies, so much so that we’ll wreck our backs for them :)

    Opening locked doors? Wow. Even No-no Lulu hasn’t learned how to do that…yet.
