LOL The thing is Soul knows she's not allowed on our couch , light dog fur shows up well on blue!
Here's my absolute little princess "Loonie Toones" we imported her from Aussie 3 years ago and we just recently got her spayed she had a good show career and is the perfect pet, her she is just lazing around!
Soul is the biggest softy around she lets cats chew her ears( gotta get some pics of that) and lets them hang off her tail, and when she has down something wrong like going in the trash she will look up at you with those big brown eyes and you can't help but forgive her!
Wellington - sounds like you need to get a new slipcover for your sofa....let's see, something other than blue, maybe black and tan???
Our dear Ellie Mae used to do the same thing - sneak up on the sofa at night when we went to bed and we would come out in the morning to find a dog toy on the couch, dog hairs, and a warm spot. Ellie Mae would be lieing under the coffee table smiling and wagginer her tail at us.
We finally gave in to her and just let her sleep in bed with us - that saved the dog hairs on the sofa!
