They do eat better than us sometimes! Mine can do nothing wrong, that's how loved they all are.
ChiChi must be allowed to lay on top of me in bed and lick my forearm while I read before turning the light out. It makes the book wiggle. If I move her off too soon, she hops right back on top. Sometimes she gets a little massage while she's there. I used to hold her chew bones too!
Dixie - Seriously, she is wonderful in every way possible. She does nothing wrong, ever, and is a joy, joy, joyful dog. She has way too many squeaky stuffed toys.
Cinnabon - she is allowed to crawl under the covers in the morning and put her cold wet feet into the middle of my back! Eeeeooow, that's cold!
Ben - What a [piece of] work in progress he is.
For the couple of negatives, all his quirks and antics makes up for them.
If I get up from sitting in the recliner, they take it over. I don't try to reclaim it. I sit on the floor, and then I still end up with dogs crawling into my lap. It makes my knitting more difficult.
They all enjoy sitting on my lap in the winter when I prop my feet up on the space heater in my office, especially Cinnabon and now Ben too. It's relaxing for all of us after a long day of work.
Edit - last line, only to change from "in" to "on"
