Sleep

Hello friends.

Lets talk about sleep today shall we.  After all sleep is very important and so is how you do it.


Comfort is important.

Even at daycare you need to get some rest.  After all, waiting for MOM to come get me and all that playing with Bert and friends is very exasperating. 

Another important thing is that sometimes you must hide your head.

Because you know the flashy beast could come out at any time.

Being able to share is very important.  Whether on the bed.

Or on the couch.

There are times when you need to pull all your paws in close.

But equally important is to stretch it all out.

And every so often

You need to turn over.

And even though sleeping on MOM's bed is nice with a monkey.

And sleeping on my bed with Sneaky, Cheeto and Rex is comfy.

Snoozen with MOM is the best.

Make sure you are between the back of the couch and MOM.  It is oh so cozy.

And keep your paws in contact to let her know you how much you love her.  This is by far my favorite place to sleep.  And an added bonus is I get endless belly rubs sleeping like this.  Life is good.

Blessings,
Goose

  2. Boy Goose, you really know how to "Work It" don't you. I never knew a guy who could get so much rest in so many places in all those different positions. I especially like you and your moms feet/paws. You live such a glorious life my friend.

  4. Oh Goose, you ARE an expert at snoozin'! I just love your different sleepin' styles ~ your right, they all serve their own special purpose. But, indeed, the most important is the snoozin' with Moms. Oh, and it IS important to be between the couch and Moms for another reason....you don't fall off the couch!
    Happy snoozin' Goose.

    Kisses,

  6. That does look like some wise words Goose. It makes me think I should learn to snuggle..... Im not a snuggler normally - Mum calls me "little miss independence"..... it drives her nuts.

  16. My new girl believes that the best way to sleep is directly on top of me! I think I must resemble a dog bed! It's quite sweet, actually. Even if I'm in my special spine-friendly reclining chair, she'll climb up and lie with her head on my chest and her body stretched out so that her paws are next to my feet.

    Every dog has their own style!

    You are so cute when you sleep, Goose!

  37. You look so cute in these photos Goose, I love to sleep by my Furiend Ernie but like you, my favorite place is to snuggle up with my Mum, I am lucky to be small enough to be able to lay cuddled next to her or on her, either way its bliss, its when I am most happy! You look magnificently awkward sleeping in some of those photos but sometimes thats the comfyest! Aww Bless your heart! Love Frank XxxxX
