What battle of the coveted window seat are you talking about? Mom always gets tired of me and Olivia battling with cat bro Bert over who gets to sit in the dog bed on the window bench. Didn’t I say DOG bed? That means the dog, right?
Bert loves to have his afternoon nap in a comfy, sunny spot which is unfortunately our dog bed. He really takes in the heat and stretches out long in OUR bed.
If we are in our bed and he wants our spot, he will sit on the floor and pester us until we finally get sick of him and leave. I tried hard to hold my own, but a girl can only battle a cat for so long. Eventually, I gave up and let him have the coveted window seat.
In an ideal world without a pesty cat brother this is how the window seat area would look. A dog in the DOG bed, and another dog also looking out the window, watching the neighborhood. Cats just make a dog’s life difficult.
Unfortunately, we live with Bert who considers himself not only to be a dog, but our boss. He gets all settled in and thinks we will just leave him alone, but that doesn’t happen.
Olivia and Bert battle it out constantly. She has no problem sitting on him, resting on him, irritating him, whatever it takes to get him to leave. She has even learned to push the bed off the bench with one of her jumbo paws. When that happens, Bert lands on the floor and is mad as a hornet!
Sometimes, he will put his head into the side of the bed, we think to pretend we are not around. He is trying to get some alone time.
Olivia spends a lot of time arguing and fighting with Bert. Neither of them ever give in, so Mom usually breaks it up. I guess it would be boring if we didn’t have Bert around, but it would also be more peaceful.
