How many spots has your dog claimed in your house?

I came up with ten...two on the couch, one by the front door, one in front of the fire place, one by the front sliding glass doors, one by the desk top PC, one upstairs on one of the beds, one on the bed in the master bedroom, one by the chair I sit in to read and watch TV and one on the floor by the couch. He's pretty well got the cabin covered.... Amazingly he doesn't have one in the kitchen...must have something to do with my cooking.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Jordan has just claimed the whole house
She lets us live here as her humble servants....



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

I think the better question is, "what spot HASN'T your dog claimed?" I'm a guest in his house. Hehe.

and if all else remained, and he were annihilated,
the universe would turn to a mighty stranger:
i should not seem a part of it."

Perhaps I should have asked how many spaces do you have in your house?

Max has several spots. At least three in the entry, although his favorite is in front of the door. Also the couch, ottoman--and the corner chair with its ottoman. In our bedroom he lays with his head on the carpet and the rest of his body on the bathroom tile--he pretty much blocks the doorway.

He also has a corner of our bed, but he prefers to lay on my pillow. He does move when I get into bed.

Ginger enjoys laying in the doorways at night just so she can trip us on our way to the bathroom. We have to slide our feet on the floor so we can find where she's at. Or turn a light on.

Diego likes sleeping near your feet. He will paw you until you rub him.

Phoebe seems to always be where we are. She has claimed a chair in the family room (see album), under the desk in the kitchen, by the back door, and by our bedroom door.
I admit she is partial to our bed, and does not willingly move.
Most nights she sleeps in her crate.

Molly doesn't have any spots at all. She follows me everywhere.
