But let me tell you, even if he won’t get up because he’s a friend, if you stand your ground, knocking and waking all the neighbors, he’ll finally get up and get you whatever you need. – Luke 11:8 (The Message)

My wife doesn’t allow dogs in the bed. That’s why I wait until I hear her heavy breathing before patting my side of the comforter. It’s hard for her to say, “No! Shove that dog off!” when she’s ah… purring. And it’s not like I’m a big dog-in-the-bed fan. Mutt takes up all my legroom, but when I’m ready for bed I don’t want to waste time discussing sleeping arrangements with a dog.

And yet I do. “No, you’re not allowed.” Whimper. “Beat it!” Sneeze. “Go on now, lay down.” Bark. “Okay, pop on up. But don’t let her find you.”

Lately the patting on my side of the bed hasn’t worked. The dog stands on her hind legs wanting to jump up, but refusing. I think she’s afraid she won’t make it. It’s happened a few times. Not that many. But enough to keep her from trying. It’s trying for me, too. Makes me have to get out of the bed, pick her up, and put her on the blanket which in turn means the purring stops, a wicked eye opens, and I’m sent to the proverbial dog house — which in our case is the guest bedroom.
