So, last night, I broke a rule. (hangs head)
One of my dogs, the female (Lillie) who is usually super hyper, was being very cuddly. It rained literally all day yesterday, so the weather was perfect for relaxing. I don't even know how it happened, but she ended up on the couch with me. She was so still and so sweet that I did not have the heart to make her get down. So, there she was. And there I was breaking the rules.
It was worth it. Maybe sometimes a little rule breaking is okay? Don't tell my boys, please!
I have included a picture as evidence that my husband, too, has allowed her to break the rules a couple of times. She inched her way up into his lap in his recliner. He's staunchly against animals on the furniture, but he couldn't resist her cuteness. This makes my heart smile.
