When doodles go bad…

Here is the couch which Barney is meant to sleep on if he wants couch time:

As you can see, it’s a good doodle size, with nice cushioning and a cover so the couch itself doesn’t get messed up.

And here is where I found Barney when I arrived home today:

This is the couch that Barney is NEVER allowed on.  Ever.  If he tries to get up, he gets shoved off.  Notice the big stain?  Yes, that it Barney’s wet & dirty spot.

I think we’ve been a bit too lenient with him lately, allowing him far too much attention and run of the house.  My guess is that Barney has decided that he rules the roost…he didn’t listen to me to go outside or sit, which he normally does, so he’s in full rebellion.  I am currently and totally ignoring him right now.  I’m going to have to work on this with my husband as he hates seeing Barney not get the attention Barney wants…we have to work on this as I don’t want two ruined couches in my house.

Happy Birthday Barney!

Happy 4th Birthday doodlebum!  Despite being asked regularly if you are still a puppy, you are heading into adulthood.  We’re so proud of the all the improvements you’ve made in the time we’ve had you and look forward to many more years to come! 

Barney had a snuggle with Roy last night (who slept in the extra bedroom after a late one with his mates) and a morning snuggle with me since he got kicked out of the extra bedroom just before I woke up.  We’re making a roast and he’ll be getting the beef bone and some meat for dinner.  He got a visit from Roy’s parents, which he loves, and two walks so far.  Along with tons of yummy treats, he’s been relaxing all day.  What a lucky, lucky boy!
