The two have taken to “owning” the sofa as they collect the last rays of sunlight in the late afternoon. As you can see, Oliver thinks he is a cat, and just walks all over the top of the sofa. Bodi thinks he is human, and owns the seat in it’s entirety.
Last night, as they both got into bed, Bodi did his usual – jumping into the bed and laying down at my pillow. This is his normal “get into bed” routine. Bodi lays with his head on my pillow and tries not to move so that Oliver can’t steal his spot. He moves over to the center of the bed when I get into bed.
The only time Bodi does not follow this routine is if he feels he might get under the blanket and sleep for a while. This, he learned from Oliver – When we first got Bodi he would never try to get under the blankets, Tucker always dove for the blankets and would actually push the blankets off of us in the middle of the night as he tried to push his nose under them. Bodi tried not to get covered up – he was so out of shape that 2-3 minutes under the blankets and he would be panting like he had run a marathon. Now, he will slide under the blankets to lie next to us on the sofa, and will sleep most of the night with a blanket over him if the night is cold enough.
So, even though we can’t say that all is perfect… we can say that all is on track for a much more perfect finish.
