Sometimes I just don't get it!
I was sitting here watching some evening news (discouraging! Why do I do this?) and Ali decided to make himself comfortable. He crawled into the little wicker basket that I toss mail into, did the usual "doggie stomp" to make everything fit, and curled up on top of my junk. Of course, as he did that, he knocked magazines off the lower shelf of the small table behind the basket.
Now, if you look, you will see that there are two cushy dog cushions right in front of the basket! And 24 inches away, out of the picture, is a traditional dog bed with thick foam for comfort.
Kids!! Whatcha gonna do?!?
