For those of you that have had the pleasure of getting to know my little Chelsie Belle, you know that it is all about the mama. She is my dog, and wants to be with me all the time - and I love it. However, there are times when I need help, and it requires her going somewhere else - mostly to grandma and grandpa's. When I was traveling regularly for work, my parents would come and get her when I was not home, because she was visibly terrified of leaving with them - and for awhile, she would hide under the table when they came because she thought they were taking her. Seriously? Now, mind you, these are the same people who spoil her rotten - grampie comes over many days a week to give her a potty break when he is in Columbus, gets her Timbits, shares his recliner with her, etc - you get it. She is very well taken care of there, but pitches a ridiculous fit when she has to go. Suffice to say, when I have human children, my day care options will be second to none based on the care they give my canine child.

Well, I have been taking this class on Monday and Wednesday, and gramma and grand paw could not stand the thought of her being home alone all day and night. So, for the last month, they have been coming on M&W morning and taking her home for the day. She has learned that going to their house does not always mean she will have to stay. This morning, my mom had taken my brother's dog to the vet for her spa day, and she came and got Chelsie (and every piece of my bedding) early. I told Chelsie to get in the car, and she jumped right in and did not display her usual paranoia. Gramma was going to stop and get her Timbits on the way home. What a spoiled puppy.

At any rate, I am very happy to see that she no longer treats going to gramma and grand paw's house as The Worst Thing in The World. Gramma rocks - not only does she launder sheets, she makes the bed too...including all 11 pillows on my bed.....

It is great to listen about your dog Chelsie Belle. The way conversation is very nice. You can get more information about bedding which I browsed from the internet may fetch you help.

OK a few comments:
1. I want to come back in my next life as your dog- she seems to have the life (seriously, no one cares if I am home alone all day)
2. You have too many pillows on your bed- this leaves no room for anything else :)
3.Do not tell the lady at your agility class that Chelsie gets fed timbits all the time...she will NOT be happy
4. Lastly, you will make a great mother, you already treat Chelsie better than I treat Naomi ;)

Now, are these 11 pillows a variety of different sizes? Or are they just 11 huge pillows on your bed? I've been agreeing with Natalie a lot have too many pillows on your bed. Do they each have a specific purpose? I just can't get past this!
