When we first told my parents we were getting a dog, my mom (only half- jokingly) threatened to repo our couch.
They gifted us a nice couch as a wedding present, and she was concerned the dog would all but ruin it. I had to convince her to stop going to consignment store to search for alternatives, but we have since had to teach Collins that the couch is off- limits. Instead, she has taken up residence with another chair and ottoman in our house.
Every night before bed, I coax her into letting me join her in the chair for some snuggles. She typically conks out while I respond to emails, read blogs, and check Twitter.
I tried to snap some photos without her noticing, but that was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, I think these photos are hilarious. I can only imagine what she was thinking.
"Mom, hmm, what's that?"
"Seriously. What is that?"
"Ok that's enough, can we go back to snuggling?"
