Loving this thread.
Totally relate to the stories from Robert & others re our mutt's claiming our own favourite chair. Mine's will happily lay sleeping on my oversized swivel chair until such times that I actually sit in her spot on the settee, then she just gives me the 'move' look.
Also, why is it she's apparently getting a bit mutt & jeff, yet whenever I open the fridge door she appears instantly right at my side looking up with the puppy dog eyes on???
She's getting on now @ 13 dog years but, despite recently being diagnosed with having a serious heart murmur, still thinks she's (like us all) a teenager!
Here's Sasha quite literally having a ball...
