Toby's Diary

Poppy the devious dog

We have a friend called Poppy. Actually we've never met her which mum says is for the best as she is a lively Yorkshire Terrier but she does pick out good toys for us at Christmas so she is our friend and we choose some doggy chews for her.

She lives with my mum's friend Annie. At around 3am in the morning Poppy was scratching and whining and telling Annie that she really really needed to go outside NOW. So Annie got out of her warm bed and went to the back door - but there was no grateful dog by her side.

When she went back upstairs there she found Poppy - very contentedly snuggled up fast asleep in the cosy warm hollow that Annie had left in the bed. She apparently managed to look like a dog that had been sound asleep for hours and that she was in her very own place in the bed rather than a dog that had tricked her human into getting out of bed so she could take her place.

Cheeky dog! Josie and I put on our shocked faces but I have stored that one away for future use!!

Since when are dogs so smart? I must see if this plan will work with my mum. She gets into bed and then I have position myself around her not the other way around as it should be. Thanks for sharing this interesting piece of information.

Cheeky dog is right Toby! That is a good one to tuck away fur future use. Unfortunately, it won't work in my house for me. I am not allowed outdoors. My brofur E.J. could pawbably pull it off though. He is the only one allowed outside. I'll pass this little gem on to him and see if he can collect a nice warm spot in the bed...thanks fur sharing! MOL!
