Meiby has a Licking Problem

Strange Dreams

How do I know I've got crochet on the brain?

The other night Meiby had been keyed up all day. Barking at every little noise (not usual for her) so this continued into the night. She sleeps in our bed so every time she thought she heard something she'd get up and bark and wake us up. I tried cuddling her in a way that would keep her calm - which surprisingly worked(!) - but then she got so relaxed that she was snoring extra loud and keeping me awake that way instead.

So I was carefully trying to wake her up enough to get her to stop snoring without startling her into barking. And since I was stuck in that dreamy between-sleep-and-awake state during this delicate process, I was dreaming of some way to crochet something (like a sling or something, I don't know) that would hold her in a position to keep her from snoring but would comfort her enough to keep her asleep so that I could sleep. Of course this would never work (haha) but it struck me as funny when I thought about the dream later.

As a side note, she's been sleeping better since then. Her allergies have been so bad this summer despite the daily Benedryl so we switched her to Claritin and we'll see how that goes. Yea, she's a princess.

2 years

Yesterday marked 2 years now that Meiby has been with us. On one hand, I can't believe she's almost 3! ...but on the other hand it seems like she's been a part of our family for so long. In the first year that we had her she changed so much as she got comfortable with us. The second year she was right at home. The only thing I can think of that changed is that she suddenly started sleeping like this:
She's finally so comfortable with us that she'll gladly get into this vulnerable position and LOVES to have her belly rubbed. Sometimes if I start rubbing her chest while she's sitting up, she'll just flop over onto her back. She certainly keeps us entertained! Happy Pugiversary Meiby :)
