You're in my spot

We had the grandkids overnight this past weekend and the grand-dog was part of the package. Usually when Georgie visits, her family is out of province. This time, only the parents were gone and the dog had to share her domain with the little ones. She was not impressed.

When she visits on her own, Georgie lies on her green blanket on the other end of the couch. This time she was displaced by the Sylvie and Caitlin. She did not take it well.

In typical Georgie fashion, she communicated how she felt. We laid her blanket on the floor and she settled there initially. 

 

Periodically she came to the couch, looked at Sylvie sat in her spot, then at me, back at Sylvie and so on. After a few minutes, she went back to the blanket again.

 

Repeat.

Repeat.

Repeat.

The first opportunity she got, Georgie was back in her spot.

Georgie is seven years old now, old enough not to like change, especially where comfort and tradition are concerned. You may be able to teach an old dog new tricks but she won't take them lying down in the wrong place for long.

  1. I can't blame her. It's HER spot, after all, and she's, well, not happy. Glad she got her spot back. :-)

  10. We have a cat that acts like that. He likes the loveseat but when we have visitors and they sit there he hides. When people leave he slowly comes back to the living room. He sniffs the loveseat carefully, waits for a day then he sits there again. Animals are creatures of habit it seems. Georgie is beautiful!!!

  12. So much like our dog who will be 14 this summer. There's always been competition with the grandchildren whether in the kitchen or on my husband's lap. Georgie is a beautiful girl, sad to see her making do on her green blanket on the floor.
