All of my Corgis have their special nightime rituals and places to sleep. Somewhat different am ones. Does yours?
Wynn: waits for me to go into the bedroom waits for a quick pet on the bed and then goes to his bed on the floor. AM: says aroooh as soon as he knows I'm up (even if I don't know it) and jumps up for a quick pet and body slams me.
Bella: gets pets and then anchores herself to the bottom end of the bed, out of the way.AM: no big deal just lays where she's at.
Wiley: runs around the bed on the floor waiting several pets and licks and then tosses a blanket around till she gets comfortable.AM: again runs around the floor looking for pets.
Livyy: Nose to nose with me till I tell her to get down. AM: is obnoxious...face to face again and takes her paw to remove my arm from across my face so she can again touch noses.
Sage: Kerplunk with a flying leap right in the middle of the bed between my husband and I hoping that she gets to stay there. AM: learning from her momma Livvy how to pull my arm away with her paw to be face to face.
It's interesting if this is their different personalities that they do what they do. Any thoughts?
Seanna starts bugging me about 7pm, that's usually when we head to the bedroom to watch tv. She'll sit and stare at me wherever I am, and let out the little "snoofs"...a sniff/woof noise. We go to the bedroom and she jumps up, then we have our play fight with my hand, or play ball a little....then she makes her bed and curls up next to my legs. It lasts about 10 minutes until she hears the cat and then she's off to chase....
Jackson is funny...he's ready for bed at 7pm too, but his mom doesn't go to bed until 10pm, and he just can't make it. So he comes to my room, I lift him up on the bed, and we snuggle once Seanna leaves. He curls up next to me, i cover him up, and we stay like that until his mom comes and gets him when she goes to bed...I love it!
@ Jennifer.... so that's why Amber says you "steal him"
@ Peggy Wynn does the back leg stretch like Bugsy.
@ Natalie... I can usually find at least one of my corgis in a crate...many times more than one and sometimes in the same crate!
@Tabaterful...Livvy may be funny (which it is) but not when I'm trying to sleep as she is very persistant.
Busgy as a "baby": hide under futon sofa at bedtime. Run away when mommy trying to catch to put in crate. Next morning, cuddle with mommy & get tummy rubs before outside for morning potty & walkies...
Bugsy after he was big enough to jump on the bed: If we stay up too late - he looks at us as if to say "G'night!" and waddles off to bed. He'll be "warming up" my side. Otherwise he follows us to bed and settles down next to me or at my feet. Unless he is still wound up - then he tries to bring a toy up there & wrastle about. If he gets off or was thrown off, he always asks if he can come back up (the pleeeeaaase whine). If I wake up in the middle of the night, I usually find him with all 4s up. We both wake up (corgi & I) 5-ish & he snuggles up as close as he can get, usually laying his chin across my neck. He scooches & squirms to get even closer. If daddy gets up 1st, he stays in bed next to me (still snuggling), otherwise we're up & it's coffee for me & brekky for him & we're out the door for our morning constitution!
"brrruphs" - - I love that!!! (Bugsy makes that noise too!) I love all the noise descriptors in this thread.
and the bit about rubbing his head with his butt in the air - I can so picture that. bugsy does his yoga - cat followed by downward dog. Then one stubby back leg sttrrretches out, then the other... too funny!
Hmmm. after reading that i dont feel so badly about getting a kindle case with a nght light so as not to disturb the sleeping corgis in my bed.
Last call is at 11 and While they can easily get on the bed, they both put front feet up so as to get that lift onto the tempurpedic. One sleeps at the foot, the other leaning against the small of my back. Very comforting.
