My New Favorite Sleeping Place - At Long Last!

This dream took me FOUR long years to achieve, and it took a lot of work to get onto this bed.

Let me explain.  I moved in with my new family a little over four years ago.  The first night in my new home, I tried to hop into my mom and dad's bed.  This is what they said:  No.  No.  No.  Off the bed., etc.  Oh, well, at least they let me lay on the couches, and the matter was settled - the beds were off limits.  It was a sad realization, but I didn't want to push my luck.

A few weeks ago, my brother, Andrew, moved back home from college for the summer.  He used to sleep with his door closed.  Well, I could smell him in his room, and I wanted to be with someone after my mom and dad went off to work.  So, I whimpered at the door.  The whimpering got louder and more persisitent until he FINALLY opened the door - well, it's about time - it is light out after all.  Then he had the nerve to get back into his bed - absolutely, positively out of the question - it is light out, and it's time to get up - even if it is 7:00 in the morning - I have no patience for people who want to stay in bed all day.  So I whimpered some more.  Then, a miracle happened - he patted his bed - that meant I could FINALLY get into a bed.  What a great compromise for both of us - he gets to stay in bed AS LONG AS I get to join him in his bed.  AMAZING - MY PERSISTENCE PAID OFF AGAIN!

Like I always say - and you've heard me say this before - never give up on your dreams.  I wanted to get on a bed, and after 4 years of hard work, I made it into a bed.  Also, use your assets to your advantage - manipulation like whimpering and sad eyes, or whatever your strengths are.  If it helps you reach your goal, do whatever it takes.  If it works for me, it will work for you.  Try it tomorrow, and let me know if it works for you.  I love laying on the bed - AT LONG LAST, I MIGHT ADD!
