My Diva Bulldog Diesel pretty much has the run of the house during the day, OK all the time. She made it very clear to me that even though I was home that the couch was off limits to me.
Finally yesterday, she allowed me some room on the couch.
As long as I don't disturber her sleep, I can share the couch with her.
Really Mom....you can go back to work anytime now...I want my couch back!
