I said the same about all of our pets over the years but my daughter got her own way when she said "but they are our family and would you make our family sit on the floor"! She has a point though would rather let our pets sit on the sofa than some of our family ;)

Hubby was the same, no dogs on the sofa or the bed.

The sofa rule disappeared in a matter of minutes. The bed rule stayed quite well, but then Millie was spayed and she looked quite poorly. We let her sit on our bed in the morning with us. It sort of stuck :D:):D:)

lol :D. i think you may have to count that as being on the sofa :D:)

That is how Millie started and very gradually she'd slip off our laps and be half on half off. Then she'd end up lying right next to us. :D

One rule we do keep, is no Millie on the sofa when we are eating.

We have fleece blankets and the dogs may sit on them on the sofa, if there is a human there too - can't manage them both on my lap! I've been shutting Izzy in her crate when we eat, she takes a running jump up on the sofas now :D

Five dogs became seven the other day!
That's a lot of fleece blanket washing I tell you
And I like to keep house and garden activity chilled. So it's never all in the garden at once and stern voice against inside play fighting! Bedlam isn't rewarding for anyone lol

That's not me with them!!
It's the other half who had the rule no dogs on the sofa!!
I'm pretty tough about it and it's only by invite on my watch!!
Plenty of room for more though, another sofa in that room. And a tidy living room at the front, clean groomed dogs only lol

We started with a "no dog on the sofa" (might I add, rule made by hubster) rule but every time I come home from the late shift at work my hubby is cuddled up with Tilly on his lap! And I always know where she will be the minute I walk in the door because she doesn't bother coming to greet me. Just wags her tail from her spot on the sofa :D
