Finders Keepers

Being an author, I work from home a lot.  We converted the large master bedroom in our Bungalow to an office/den, using the smaller back bedroom to sleep in.  This gives me a well-ventilated room (it has two doors, one to the hall and one to the living room) with lots of windows for me to work with good light plus a cozy place for us to curl up with the dog in the evening and watch a movie on the large computer screen.

There is a futon in there that Abby the Rescue believes is hers and hers alone. There's room for all three of us on it, but most nights when we sit on either side of her, she gives a long sigh and a glare and moves to her fancy Orvis dog bed at our feet.

During the day, while I write, she will curl up in a little ball, and not move except to greet the dog walker that comes by mid-day if I"m particularly busy.
BUT, the very instant she hears the computer shut off, knowing I'm done for a while, she stretches out as LOOOONG as she can physically get so there is no room for me to sit next to her.

Abby, I'm on to you :-)


  1. Maybe Abby is training YOU!! Looks like she is comfy!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. Ghostwriter and Dad gave up keeping me, and Joey, Ginger, and Charisma, off the couch. They just put a blanket on it.

  3. Bwahaahaa! That futon is definitely Abby's. Roxy always curls up on ANY furniture that SHE likes, and ALWAYS in HER usual spot.

  4. Abby, you are a lot smarter than Ciara used to be. She loved to be on the sofa (neither of us seems to be couch potatoes), but as soon as she saw Mom or Dad coming, she would jump down. Of course, it helped that there was a loveseat close by that she might opt to choose instead:)

  5. it's amazing how pets react to our techie stuff... Phenny barks every time when FB sends a signal for incoming stuff... I had to turn off the speaker yesterday LOL

  6. Love these photos!

    We've done the same thing in our house - the smaller room we took for sleeping and the larger room with windows and views of our pasture became our library. It's a very cozy place to be!
