1.) sleep
2.) sleep in the window so it's easier to bark at squirrels and pubi sac men.

Bridie likes to hang out in the bathtub. I discovered this when the faucet started to leak and I came home day after day one week wondering how one side of her behind came to be soaking wet. If I stuff a kong with peanie-buttah, she slurp at that for awhile as will Declan. Ceili likes to hang out on the waterbed or on her bed in the livingroom. When Declan snoozes, he likes to wedge himself between a bookcase and my diningroom table. Actually that reminds me, I need to buy another nubby kong.

Well they sleep...

They also play with each other...

Then they decide to destroy the house if at all possible :P (or get up on the fridge)

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Joey sleeps either on the couch upstairs or the computer room -

I think he might make himself a sandwich sometimes too if we are gone for a while.

Roscoe and Mileva spend the day in their crates. The one time I left Mileva out WITH A CHEWY, she destroyed my brand new book, the box around the Christmas lights and a newspaper. I think it was spite. Not sure what we are going to do with Sasha yet. Otis sleeps the day away on my daughter's desk in the sun. Lucky animals.

Both mine will sleep if they think there is no one in the house....otherwise, it is play time in the morning until around 10:00, the a nap...then more play time, then more naps most of the afternoon. On occasion, Buster has been known to destroy running shoes......and yesterday, due to my hubby leaving the front enter closet open.......Buster decided to sample my high heeled black boots, which I bought in Florida, which I paid a fortune for....and which I WILL replace

Buster will seek and destroy anything that is left in his path, so this causes the hubby and daughter to be a bit neater

OMG Buster is hilarious!

Dodger sleeps in my bed, Minnow patrols the perimeter (which basically means she goes from window to window and spits at the intruders *ahem* squirrels and birds). On occasion Dodger will groom or chase her but poor Minnow has to be a real pain in the neck before he gives up sleeping (I swear Minnow only sleeps 10 hours a day MAX)!

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.

i :love: Buster!
What a cutie.

My guys sleep sometimes.. but if they are hyper or I'm gone too long they are destructo dogs ... garbage, their beds, whatever they can tear up. On nice days if I'm not going too long I leave them in the yard where they are much happier- play with toys and chase each other out there.

lol that picture is too cute.

My cats sleep.. the dogs are crated. Springers can get separation anxiety so I'm not sure if or when I want to try leaving them out of their crates. I have tried leaving them just locked in my room a couple times. But they were in their crates when I came home anyway.

I was so amused by Buster's pic that I forgot to answer jiorji's question.

My dogs/cats are only left for a couple hours once a week (sometimes twice) when I go into town. The cats are left in the house and they either sleep or watch out the window. The dogs are outside in a large fenced yard and that is when they dig, dig, dig.

But, now that Chase is on restricted activity and can't play with Logan :sad: when I had to go into town yesterday I left him inside with a knuckle bone and Logan ouside with one. This was the first time they've had bones and I really think they didn't even know that I was gone.

Buster rocks! I love it when a doggy's fetish isn't costly though... My old lab chewed shoes till the day she died. Boo: Kleenex boxes (I already posted a video somewhere about it). I'm hoping I can get Jemma to channel some of her anger out on kleenex boxes too. She tends to go for the garbage can these days...
