There's someone in my bed!....

It all started last year when JP's mom came to visit us and Violet decided that she would sleep in her room. This led to Violet getting a dog bed which she loves to curl up in. None of the other dogs seemed to even notice this new deal until a few weeks ago. Corrie decided she wanted to sleep in Violet's bed and since they're sisters you know that didn't go well. Violet went to JP to tell on Corrie and plead her case. I thought, we'll buy another bed and problem solved, right? Well for night time sleeping it's still a race to see who gets to Violet's bed but we usually make Corrie get in her bed. Whew,,,are you keeping up? So, last week I watched as Charlie decided that he wanted to get in Corries bed! Remember how big our Charlie is? I watched as he did a walk by the bed sizing it up, then he walked up to it and tried to sit, that didn't work, next he walked around it and tried get all four huge paws in it and somehow shrink into it, that didn't work either!! He circled once more, stopped short of the bed and laid down with his head and paws in the bed.
He's been working on his technique each day and it's so funny.
Other happenings in the holler are, the turkey's are coming through the yard each day to visit
and I've made my first ever elderberry jelly which turned out really good.
Well, I'm off to the kitchen to process some more tomatoes. We have a least one more picking later on this week and that should do it. We have had a really good year in the garden. We are blessed and send...Blessings from the holler.

Charlie is such a sweet goof. I think elderberry jelly is my new favorite because it has such a bold taste. I usually prefer jam but this jelly really berryee! I got the recipe from TennZen and there's a link the our last post to her blog.

YD, sometimes with Samantha & June said...

That Charlie is such a little(well, not so little) goofy boy! You can buy them each a bed but they will all end up fighting for what the others have. That's just the way it is.

I love Charlie! What an adorable goofball he is and I'm so happy you got pictures of that!!! "I'll make myself fit!!!" :-)
Yeay - Elderberry jelly looks lovely. Let us know how it tastes!

Okay... that is hilarious!!! I have a mental picture of Violet and Corrie fighting over the bed, but the picture of Charlie just demolishing the bed is toooo funny!
The elderberry jelly sounds wonderful!

That Elderberry jelly looks good enough to eat! How 'bout I bring some nice hot bread and butter?
I'm jealous that you still have tomatoes...

Charlie is so funny - I guess he wants to get in on the action (or in-action). Our little pom sleeps on her stuffed animal - it's almost as big as she is!

Nice to meet you, Tracey

Charlie needs to meet my son's dog, Cody, who is a GSD, also. Both of them could compare notes on how to fit into a tiny bed and not look silly.
