The making of the bed

One of the most fun things EVER is the making of the bed.

First, No. 2 takes all the blankies, the sheets, and everything off the bed. This is very exciting. All of a sudden there is a great wide expanse of empty bed for me to run around on, spin, jump, bark, rumpage, and FRAP!

Sometimes No. 2 joins in the fun.

Really?

Really?

Then he gets a new sheet and stands at the end of the bed. “You ready?”" he asks me.

I was BORN Ready!

He flaps the new sheet high in the air! It is so exciting!

I spin like a whirling top!

I spin like a whirling top!

I surf the sheet, catching the leading edge and conquering it.

The sheet comes down.

The sheet comes down.

You try to cover me but I am too swift.

You try to cover me but I am too swift.

No. 2 never gets it right the first time, and is forced to repeat the maneuver.

He is chagrined.

He is chagrined.

Do it again!

Do it again!

I am ready for Phase 2!

I am ready for Phase 2!

Then come the rest of the blankies and the pillows, etc. And the fun is over, until the next time!

Woofs,
Willie

Hi my friend

I love changing the bed too. my human tries to do it when she thinks we are asleep. no chance! We all join in – Me, Molly (another cavalier) and our two cats. There’s a competition to see who can spread their scent on the new bedding first. Sometimes my human gets grumpy and banishes us all from the bedroom – how mean is that?

Paws up, Toby!

Yes, one of the Klingons often participates in our bed-making, too. She has a very small brain, though, and she can’t figure out how to surf the sheet like I do. It always comes down on top of her and makes a lump. It’s very exciting to dart and bark at the lump. After a couple minutes she starts crying and saying, “Why did it get so dark in here?” Then she starts looking for a way out, and at that point the humans usually take pity and lift the side of the sheet so she can get out. Then we do it all over again.
