Dave has a back injury. (That's an over-simplification, but bear with me.) He has come a long way towards feeling better in the last couple of days (inserting major thanks to everyone at the KSU Vet Med Teaching Hospital!!!), but in addition to meds, he has a long list of no-nos for the next 4 weeks. One such no-no is jumping ... which brings us to this post. To help him get through the first part of his recovery, I've been on the floor with him for parts of the night - or more specifically, on our air mattress. Rather than deflate it every morning only to have to re-inflate it at night, I thought I would be really clever and just put it on top of our bed! That way, I would also block him from trying to jump onto our bed - a major league no-no right now! Sounds great, right?
Here's how it looks:

Looks like a good plan, right? Not only does it make the bed too high for Dave to try to jump up, but he doesn't like change, per se, so I knew that something out of the ordinary up there would keep him at bay.
|"Hi, Mom! There's something weird on the bed.|
I'll just lay here like a good boy, OK?"
What a good puppy! Isn't he?!?
But then ... in the back of my mind, something was nagging at me. It seemed too easy. Too perfect. Too ...
But fear not! Let's tip-toe around to the other side for another look.
|"Oh... hey, Mom! Cool fort you built here for me! Thanks. Very comfy & private."|
ZIMMIE!!! I really should have seen it coming! At least it was Zim and not Dave ... and with as scared and concerned as we've been for Davy, the boys' dad and I truly, truly appreciated the laugh Zim gave us!
And so the question is what was I thinking, trying to outsmart a Siberian Husky? (There, Zim. I said it. Happy now?)
Have a great day, everyone! And remember to take joy from all the little things in life.
