My Dog Is Weird #2

If you read my first installment in this series you know my dog is a shower-licker.  But that’s obviously not his only habit that mystifies.  It’s obvious because otherwise, a) I couldn’t call this a series, and b) you wouldn’t be reading this right now.

So weird habit #2 (and probably Weird Habit #3, although that’s another post) involves his sleeping position, inasmuch as it’s actually possible to sleep like this:

Please note, if you will his back pressed hard into the edge of the coffee table.  The hard, wooden, pointed edge of my coffee table.  Why?

I hear you.  “That doesn’t look so bad,” you say.  “I’ve probably slept against some edges like that in my time.”  Perhaps even, “At least he’s still on the rug!”  And from a certain perspective you’d be right. But fortunately for you, that’s not the only perspective you get.

Let’s take a closer look at the corner of the table, shall we?

Well, that looks pretty uncomfortable.  The corner does appear to be poking him a bit.  But maybe another angle will shed some light on the situation?

WHY?

Yup.  Most uncomfortable position ever, confirmed.  I mean, we’ve all been in situations where we’ve been compelled to sleep in an uncomfortable place.  But how often have you volunteered for this, when there are literally dozens of more comfortable places to sleep?

I don’t get it.  But then, I’m not a dog.

As always, thanks for reading, and you’re welcome.

Living the Dream,
Humble Dave
