How much is that doggie in the window?


I’m fighting a loosing battle. I’m trying to teach Bella to stay off the back of my couch. I have totally donated our piano bench to her cause. I put her favorite blankie on top of the bench and I’ve even been known to bring her random treats when I catch her lounging there.  She knows I yell and scowl at her when I find her on the couch. She jumps off the couch whenever I’m around but it’s the REST of the time that we simply disagree. Yeah, she owns the couch whenever I step out of the room.

So my idea is to build Bella her very own plush window seat suited to the princess that she is. Hence the piano bench training. I just don’t want to spend all that effort for her to reject my grand scheme.

We are still in the trial period, but I think she looks perfect sitting there. I’m still trying to decide exactly what her throne will look like. I’m totally open to ideas.

    At fIrst I was thinking diva with zebra print and red feather trim. Is Bella a diva? No, I think Bella is a more royal with dark purple and gold beading. There is a bit of whimsy in her so perhaps pastels with big dots ……. maybe I’m overthinking this a bit!
    LOVE you bella, Bella!

    PINK and Frilly! Just Kidding! But if you want to switch your baby for my baby I am totally willing. Your battle seems acceptable to me right now compared to the Whines we have adopted. =)

    She’s adorable sitting in that window. Sorry, I have no suggestions on a window throne for the dog.
