Ronnie is a strange dog, there’s no getting away from it. Although he’s like plenty of other dogs in his love of all things soft and comfortable. He’s not allowed on the beds, although we’ve already seen that he’ll disobey that one when he thinks there’s no one around to catch him.
But he is allowed on the sofa and he takes full advantage when some of the cushions are nicely laid up together. Here he’s managed to make a nice comfy nest for himself and you can just see the happiness on his face as he nestles in to that nice warm bed.
He has a strange ritual that he goes through before he perches himself atop cushions and it’s fascinating to watch because it is so cat-like. He does the usual doggy-like walk-around-in-circles for a while, then he moves all four legs up and down just like a cat would, moving the cushions into the perfect position (at least he thinks so) for ages before circling a few more times and then finally settling down.
Sometimes he’ll be doing that little ritual for ages and then plonk himself down only to jump up a few seconds later as he decides he doesn’t want to sleep there after all and then goes and stretches out on the floor like a proper little dog!
