Churry has been having a very difficult week with the couch. She's not understanding the idea that she's NOT allowed up there. We've had to work on it a lot this weekend because, once again, I've caught some bug from school! You would think after this many years of teaching my immunity would be better! This makes for a very boring weekend for Churry, but we have been working a lot on "Off" in regards to the couch. It doesn't help when I fell asleep and wake up with her on my legs very comfy and gazing up at me with those huge puppy dog eyes!
She's also very sneaky about it. So I know she KNOWS the rule, just chooses not to follow it. She will do a "Here up" as invited and sit there and enjoy the petting. But she will gradually and very sneakily (or so she thinks) get a little bit more of herself up there one back leg at a time and very carefully snuggle her way into me, watching me the entire time to see if I'm going to notice. So I make her get off and the sneakiness starts again. As naughty as it is, it sure is cute!
