Sleeping 101
by Jack

There are some rules one should follow if one wishes to get the best night's sleep.  We will start with a few of the basics.

1.  Take up as much of the bed as possible.  Why should you be uncomfortable just so someone else can sleep where you want to be?

2.  Make sure you're on the side of the bed that is where your peoples sleep.  That way they will understand that it's your bed too.

3.  At least one part of your body needs to be hanging off the bed.  That way your peoples will feel sorry for you and get a bigger bed, even if they already have a California King.

4.  Make sure you shed a lot of hair.  That way they will have to put down extra stuff for you to sleep on so that your hair will not get all over the bed.  Remember, the more stuff you can sleep on, the softer the bed will be!  So what if it doesn't match the rest of the bed.  Who do they think you are?  Martha Stewart?

And there you have just a few of the Rules for Sleeping that we follow in our household.  Tune in next time for our crash course in Advanced Napping!  Until then, sweet dreams! 


  1. Jack! You are a master!! Combining the famous exposed-belly pose with the head over the bed. Brilliant! A 10!! Where is Bob Costas??

  3. No snoring ? Or is that in 201 ?

  4. Ahhhh I will make sure my peeps read this one! Thanks!
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  5. Our boys tend to not let things hang off the bed. They've discovered gravity a few too many times!


  6. Max and Mia agree....!!and they suggest "sun puddles" for afternoon naps....


  7. MOL Jack...very good sleeping rules...I do believe you might have some Feline DNA or either I have some K9 DNA 'cause those are my rules too.
    Happy Friday,

  8. Professor Jack another amazing lesson for all of us! Thank you, sir!

  9. Um Im not showing that to my pups

    Stop on by for a visit

  10. Jack is definitely living the good life!

  11. Jack! You sure know a lot about the subtleties of getting a good snooze. Just watch out for that head hanging down. Like all your blood could go in there and it might explode!


  12. Great rules, Jack. We follow them all, Dad has a poor back due to our sleeping arrangements! BOL!!!

  14. Yah Jack, we deserve to sleep how ever we like. I totally agree with you.

    Jazzi and addy

  15. Looks like you need a new title... O' Sleep Master Wise One'!

  16. AH HA, this must be some keen instinct, Jack, in Labs and Goldens!
    Because Raider lived by every one, except #3! LOL
    Are you comfy yet?! tee hee hee

  17. Sleeping 101? Hmmm, I must have slept through that class... :)

  18. Yep, Abby has all those mastered, except the hanging body parts off the bed. If she does that, she's not big enough to also hog the very center of the bed. But she does snore. Next up: the 'chasing rabbits' portion of the bed snooze.

    Jed & Abby

  19. oh jack... you adorable puppy!
    and look how pink and clean your ear is, hanging off the bed like that... so you can hear tall guy approaching? to move you over... so he can use the bed for sleeping too? humans have a tiresome habit of doing that. no pun intended.
    love ya buddy,

  20. My mom SO wishes I needed those guidelines but I take to the floor once Mom starts getting ready fur bed -

    I do spread my furs around - but just like my spot near the door -


  21. Great advice Jack, now all we have to do is figure out how to get mom and dad to let us ON da bed. ;)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

    PeeS Thanks fur stoppin' by today!

  22. Hi Y'all,

    Something is wrong in my house! I have a nice soft memory foam bed of my own with extra support, but can't get in the human bed. Their bed is so high and just a double so one of the humans would have to sleep on the floor. Besides I'm expected to stay alert all night so they can sleep.

    Do you give lessons?

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  23. You have summed it up perfectly Jack. I have tried to explain this to my humans and this will truly help them understand!
