Waiting for Wilhelmina.

 Wilhelmina, " Some households have very firm rules about where pets are allowed and not allowed to be. But not in our home. We are allowed to sit and hang out or lie down and sleep  just about anywhere our little hearts desire."

 Wilhelmina, " We are allowed on beds, armchairs and couches! It's a wrestling match every evening to see who gets to sleep closest to the humans."

Wilhelmina, " In the past, the only piece of furniture LP would rather we didn't make ourselves comfortable on, was this loveseat. The very one that I am lying on now!"

Wilhelmina, " LP claims she has never once had to tell any of us to not go on it. It has always been silently understood all these years that this loveseat is special and vaguely delicate ;  even the cats left it alone! Everyone observed the silent rule, the loveseat was meant to be admired from afar. But when  I came along , even when I was still a puppy barely able to climb up on it,  I proclaimed it as MY special loveseat.These days, I like to come here for a quick think or a short catnap when no one is looking and everyone is busy spinning their lives."

Wilhelmina, " Often times, when LP can't find me in the evenings, I will be here making myself right at home on MY special loveseat."

Wilhelmina, " And the interesting thing is , she has never attempted to shoo me off. She says that after all the years she has admired this favourite piece of furniture  , it must have been waiting for me all along. Now she holds it in even greater esteem as she watches me bravely claiming it for my own every evening as I savour its' comforts and  fall fast asleep on it."

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

  3. I love the title too and Wilhelmina, you have told your story well. That loves eat was truly waiting for just the right member of the family. And she is there. You.

  4. We are allowed to sit anywhere we want too. The only room off limits is the dining room because of plants that could be poisonous.Your folks are wise, they know furniture is just an object. You look so pretty on the loveseat. XO

  5. Dakota and Cody are allowed to lay anywhere they want too, but do you believe Dakota NEVER lays down on the couch? Crazy dog!! Wilhelmina you are precious!!!! DakotasDen

  6. Wilhelmina your home sounds just like ours. Even Cooper is allowed on all our furniture, though at first I kept her off the bed-three dogs snuggling on a queen bed just didn't work. However, on her last visit with us, she realized if she stayed at the bottom of the bed, at my feet, it worked(until the three start playing in the morning). You are a beauty-wish you could meet Copper, you'd have such fun together.
    Wags and kisses to all the critters.
