You Can Never Have Enough Beds

Sid has two “official” beds, three if you count our bed (which he most assuredly does). So why does he also need to claim EVERYTHING ELSE as his bed?!

If something, and I mean anything, is left on the ground for more than 15 seconds it becomes a bed.

Here are some of the more recent “beds” that Sid has claimed:

1) Scrap Piece of Foam Padding. I was cutting pieces of this foam to augment the wood slats that support our mattress. I turned my back and during those few moments, Sid managed to claim the scrap piece of foam as his own. (I must have had a sixth sense about this one and made sure to retract the box cutter before stepping away!)

2) OK, yes an Aero-bed is technically a proper bed – but not so much when it’s DEFLATED. C’mon, Sid. That is just pitiful, man.

3) Pile of Clothes. This is classic Sid. I think we have at least a dozen or so photos of Sid atop a pile of dirty clothes. He can’t seem to get enough of the stuff! Sometimes he’ll even go for a stray sweatshirt that gets left on the floor. At least I’ve never seen him curl up on a lone sock (not yet, anyway).

4) Cardboard Box. Sid must either think he’s a cat or a hobo. I guess he could probably pass for one of those sad clown hobos with that mopey little face of his.

This is just a glimpse into the mind of a pug who looks at the world through mattress-colored glasses.

What is the weirdest thing your pug has slept in?

    Hi Sid
    This is the mommy typing today. I like to buy the babies the smallest bed and watch them squeeze in the bed.
    Yesterday I left a small basket with my knittings on the sofa for 2 minutes and I find Marshmallow squeezed in it.

    Sid, we are so much alike sometimes, it’s scary! And don’t for one second believe your dad when he says pitiful because I see that although the aero bed is deflated, the sheets are still on it and that definately means bed to me! Laundry is sometimes the best bed of all because you can shape it however you like, but I prefer them warm out of the dryer. I also like to sleep on air vents when the heat is on. Sid, you may want to try laying on your peeps paperwork, bills, magazines, books, and the like. Not too bad comfort-wise and it gets the attention back on you where it belongs. I have to say that I’ve never tried a box before but you demonstrated the built in bolster they have so I may have to try that next. Be sure to let us know if you discover more great napping spots!

    I LOVE the bottom photo. Our pugs are quite convinced that our bed is the proper bed so they are not much for dog beds or anything else. However they, and our other dogs Norbert and Bob, will go to bed at the drop of a hat. If my husband or I go upstairs for even a minute they run up after us and jump in the bed clearly thinking it is bed time, or nap time

    Hi Sid,
    The box picture is great! I like a pile of clean laundry,fresh out of the dryer. My most unusual place would have to be on a plane. I sleep in the big bed with Mom, which I hog the whole bed. Also on the bed is my little bed. It’s a bed on a bed.

    OK, we get all of these but the box. That’s a little kooky Siddy. Scarlet definitely likes to cuddle with the lone sock but her fave non-bed is the shower mat when one of us in the there ~ maybe she’s just guarding us. Or maybe she wants to take a shower???

    Sid, we realize you live in the big city and all, but you are being abused! Only two beds? We have at least 15 dog/cat beds. Not counting couches, chairs, human beds. With our embarrassment of beds, we don’t have to sleep on anything odd. Now odd positions, that we have experience with.

    I love the fact that you turned around and Sid decided the scrap of foam was suitable:) I claim my mom’s suitcase as my bed when she is packing just in case she forgets to bring the most important thing on her trip….ME. I also like to tackle the laundry basket before she has even put it on the bed so that I can get in it. Fresh warm laundry is my ultimate favorite. I give her the stink eye when it begins to get folded and disappear.

    Pug Love!
