Milking It

Anyone who thinks that dogs don't have the ability to reason and manipulate should totally meet Lola!

First, a little background to this story... Lola has always slept in a kennel which is located in my living room. ALWAYS. There had been two nights prior to this illness that she had been allowed to sleep in my bed. The first time was the very first night I owned her. I tried to get her to sleep in the kennel that night, but since I had yet to purchase earplugs for my roommate and myself, that turned into an impossibility. The second night had been the night she got home from the hospital during her HGE bought when she was just over a year old. Then of course she slept with me when she was home last week because she was so sick.

Lola loved her kennel. She often would go get in even before I told her to. Usually when I hit the off button on the remote, she would make a dash to her kennel.

Okay, so back to last night... I said, Lola it's time for bed. What did she do? She made a dash into my room! Then she came back into the living room and I thought, "she's come back in for the kennel." Nope. She ran back into the living room, looked around, found her little pink elephant, Ellie, ran and grabbed her and ran back into my room where I found her standing by the bed looking up, with Ellie in her mouth!

She knew that since she just got out of the hospital, I wouldn't boot her out of bed! When she is sick, she is a good sleeper. She sleeps in one spot at the end of the bed. Last night started out the same way, but every two hours she walked up to my head and gave me a kiss. I think she would wake up and just wanted to make sure she wasn't dreaming, but in fact she WAS at home and WAS in bed with her mommy!

Tonight, will be a different story for Lola I'm afraid. It seems as of right now, she is fit enough for the kennel!

Oh sweet Lola....she is going to be a bit heart broken, but it must be done. Back to the real life she goes tonight. Let me know how it goes.
