I CAN'T PUT DOWN MY FOOTREST

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I always work in a chair that has plenty of room for a pillow behind my achy breaky back, and I put up the footrest.

Feet Up = A Fairly Happy Back

A few minutes ago, I tried to get up to feed the puppers their suppers.

I couldn't put down my footrest. What might be in the way?

I became suspicious, so I extricated myself from the chair as carefully as possible without putting down the footrest.




Come out, Pretty Penelope, so you can eat supper.

The other black furry item in the shot is Franklin's back. My doggies like to be close to me.

I am a fortunate dog mom.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  2. My dogs were smaller. I used to yell at them to get out for fear of hurting one.

    1. If I yelled, Penelope might cry. Better for me to figure out how to leave the chair without upsetting her.

    1. She sleeps in her crate at night. I don't close the door. She likes having a den.

    1. She's a warm, furry footrest. My son was here last night. First she sat on his lap. Then she sat on mine. He is her favorite person.

    1. She's super cuddly. I love holding her. I can't pick her up, though, because she weighs 50 pounds.

  6. You are sitting on her dog porch, what do you expect?

    I told Gonzo you're trying to entice him with your Janie-ways into moving to Florida and being your son...he looked upward, scratched his chin and said, "Hmmmmmm...."

    You can't have my boy(s), Janie-poo...but if Gonzo shows up there, be good to him.

    1. It's not that far to Orlando. Penelope and Franklin in the house. Lots of great movies. Favorite Young Man so cool. All the kids said I was the hip mom. Gonzo . . . I'm calling . . . Gonzo . . . Somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight, a mom is thinking of you and calling you to come to your true home tonight. I have a great little house. Easy to clean. I'll scratch your face when it itches. Gonzo . . . Gonzo . . . Gonzo, phone home. Gonzo, it's a wonderful life. You will get a great education and a great job, Gonzo. I have that effect on kids.

  7. Daughters dogs do that sometimes. She is always ask, is Waldie there ? before she can put the raised part down.
    My dogs like being behind the chair or climbing up on the sofa back and laying there. Sometimes laying their head near my face. My Scottie Kirby just to do that all the time.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. My dogs usually won't get on the furniture, even with encouragement. They probably think, Didn't anybody tell her that furniture is for people, and we're happier on the floor where we can surround her, or maybe she'll trip on us?

    1. I keep telling her how I love her and that she's sleek and pretty. I think she suffers from low self-esteem.

  9. Don't squish that pup! He's only trying to keep the buggers off you while you work :)

    1. I knew where she was as soon as I tried to put down the footrest because she stays in whatever room I'm in almost 24/7.

  10. My Polly sleeps with us, usually against me. If I turn over she growls at me....I suppose she things she is letting us sleep with her in her bed.

    1. When we lived in Illinois, we had a big Treeing Walker Coonhound. If he stepped on your foot, it stayed stepped on. Before we adopted him, he suffered many injuries. He liked the electric blanket on our bed. I'm sure the warmth felt good to his old bones. The funny thing was that he'd get in bed with me and when my (then) husband tried to get in bed, the dog growled at him. That was the only time he growled. He was so gentle, but he did not like that man in our bed.

    1. She hasn't gone under there again, although I was careful not to squish her.

  15. That's so funny! I have the problem with my 7 year old getting jealous when I give our 10 year old attention. It's been forever it seems that I've read to the 10 year old, and I decided to this morning. He's such a good reader, so that's why I hardly read to him. Every kid should be read to from time to time. It was one of those books where you choose your own adventure. Once I asked the 10 year what page he wanted me to turn to? the 7 year old through a fit. My husband said he had to sit on the other couch to cool down. He got his case to be read to just yesterday.

    1. I read to my children until they said they didn't want me to read to them anymore. Those were sad days.

  16. YES! Just how close can our dogs get to us?!! Sophie has to be touching us if she is lying down next to us.
    Thanks for the tip re achy back, Janie, I will pass this on to Ron who has a very touchy back at the moment.

    1. I will be glad when Penelope feels ready to sit on my lap and get in bed with me. I want more cuddles. Tell Jim feet up, pillow that's not too big and cushy behind back, and heating pad if the weather is cool enough. I'm sure it is where you are. It's 63 degrees here. That's cool for me, but comfortable. The natives probably think they'll freeze to death.
