Like the rest of the north east, it is bitterly cold here on Long Island. It seemed the perfect night to light a fire and sit and knit. Our fireplace is in the living room, but the room is without a tv. With my new ipod, that is no problem – I will listen to Cast On and knit away on my new sweater project. So there I am, all cozy and knitterly and the phone rings. Naturally I forgot to bring it with me into the living room and I have to get up and find it. This was the scene upon my return …..
The pug is just preserving your warm spot. It’s a service, really.
Moxie does the very same thing…opportunist dogs!
Ya. My dog’s stolen the prime location in front of the fire too. He’s quite a bit bigger than a pug though.
Pugs know they look more blue ribbon worthy in natural light. Smart.
PUGS- what little clowns that always keep you smiling..
Your dog is certainly nobody’s fool. Does he sit on your lap. bessie loves to sit on mine but as she’s 80 pounds my legs fall asleep.
Mason always does the same thing – the minute I get up, he’s in my spot.
My cats are the same way but faster. I can get up for 3.5 seconds and when I return, there’s a cat curled up on my chair saying, “This is my spot. Go away.”
Silly puppy dog!
My cat steals my spot before I can even get in it the first time. Psychic tendencies or something, the little brat.
It’s usually a cat for me, and usually on my computer chair (we often share and let me just say, he has the better deal in that situation).
He is adorable.
I can see the museum installation now: Pug in Repose on Floral Chair.
He was just keeping it warm for you, he does look very cute.
OMG, our little hound does the same thing! When I get up from knitting, he hopes right on the couch and heaven forbid I try to move him! Also, I just bought a second Ott for over my spinning wheel and he lays dangerously close to the treddle and “soaks up the rays”. Funny little critters!
Our dog, Sadie, does that too! We call her “the usurper”.
Its just keeping your seat warm in the cold weather.
that scene is so inviting… Let me know the next time you leave that comfy chair, I will jump in there and shove the pug on the rug
I-pod, fireplace and knitting … sounds perfect. My living room doesn’t have a tv either, and I don’t have an i-pod, but I have a fireplace and a stereo so its just as lovely … one of my favourite places to knit. :)
Awww, I hope you didn’t disturb her!
