Outer Space

Cute, huh? Thing is for a little guy, Rory sure takes up lots of space. So much space that I end up on the edge of the bed. When I'm pretty sure he's asleep I move a few inches away and even in his sleep he follows me. I woke up after this with my head actually hanging OFF the bed onto the floor! I went along for moral support the other day when we drove into Cochrane to the vet's for Rory's shots. Truthfully, I'm not much help in those situations, but Rory was a trooper. Our vet is from South Africa and has a soft-spot for Ridgebacks. He says Rory has beautiful bones and lovely structure. Obviously, this fellow doesn't sleep next to a nipping, poking, fur-covered set of bones. ...Seth

Dear Seth,

What your little buddy is doing is called 'iceberging' in the Ridgeback world. Named for the slow inexorable movement of a dog across a bed - they are profound experts at doing it to the people they sleep with ... in your case dogs. Ending up with a few inches of bed is completely normal, however I have never ended up with my head on the floor.
