I'm just curious, what are the rules (if there are any) about dogs on the furniture in your house?
Ah, we have that rule too. Off means off.The girls are allowed wherever BUT they have to be respectful of that right. They must listen to us when we tell them to get off.
Annie is the same way. Has to have her head on he pillow, and tucked in. The others could care less about cuddles. Chesney doesn't even like to lay on blankets, and Grissom is too independent (erh. and arrogant) to submit himself to affection. lolBailey and Akasha snuggle with us in bed, and under the covers every night. Its just a Dane thing LOL
The other two girls are not that cuddly and will come up for morning snuggles before we get out of bed!
I entirely see this point, and understand why some people don't allow pets on furniture because of it. We have a leather couch, which I hated at first, I'm really not a leather person, but now, with 4 dogs and a cat, it's a godsend.Having lived with a Rottweiler and a Pointer I got tired of having to sticky roll white hair off black clothes and black hair off white clothes when leaving the house. I also would get embarassed when guests would get up to leave and have dog hair all over their backs! LOL!
