On the Lap

Del.icio.us | Digg | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | Reddit 19 November 2007

One particular advantage small dogs have over their larger counterparts is the ability to sit on their owner’s lap.

Just lately, Daisy has taken to having a snooze on my lap as I work on the computer at my desk during the day. She hardly weighs more than a bag of sugar, so I often forget she’s there and there have been the odd time when I’ve decided to get up for something and nearly tipped her onto the floor!

Luckily, being a dog with the usual amount of sixth sense, Daisy lets me know a split second before I start to rise from my chair, so although the momentum takes me to a half standing point before my own reflexes kick in, I manage to catch her before she tumbles!

Let that be a warning to owners of Great Danes! You wouldn’t want to tip one of those off your lap in a hurry!

    Uff… it’s incredible! My cats think, me and the keyboard are the best places to sleep on, to play with.

    Ah, it is not too bad tipping a Great Dane off your lap really fast. You get used to it.

    I know, sometimes Daisy lies down right behind my office chair and I have to be careful I don’t run her over with the wheels when I slide backwards to get up!
