So AJ did they come and take you away?

I have had to do the same before (numerous times), once had to climb onto a flat roof and in an upstairs window of a flat I lived in, I'd just moved in, and the guards did turn up.
Opened the door and I was unpacking (could of looked like packing stuff to rob)
I was told to get spare key cut and leave it with a neighbour and also don't leave the window open as it if I could get in anyone could

I lost my keys once and tried to open the latch which was on the inside of the gate, got my elbow wedged in between the pickets when I was jumping up, luckily I got it out but I gave up and waited til someone came with a key. Had a nasty bruise and splinters as a result.

Na, I'm still here, lets hope the person in the car recognised me as opposed to just letting me get robbed!

In bed this morning and the cat decided to sleep right in the middle of the bed leaving me with a tiny corner of a duvet. So I made myself smaller and put up with it! She definitely rules the house here!

I often wake up to find I've either manoeuvred myself around the dog or I've been converted into a dog lounger, move her out of the way, then she moves herself back

Just as well I don't share with the dog too or I'd definitely be on the floor! A seemingly small dog can spread himself right out!
I must post the photo I have of the cat sleeping on the big dog cushion and the poor dog curled into a ball on a blanket on the floor beside her.

Ah I wish Bailey slept on my bed!! I stopped letting him up about 2 years ago now what with his legs and all cos we've no carpet on them and I was afraid he'd slip!! Maybe it's time to get them covered so I can start to have lie ins while I'm taking a few months off!

It's a bit blurry but you get the idea, she's a stubborn cat!

You might not get much of a lie in with a snoring dog shoving a paw into your back to move over!

There's a little cairn x female in my local pound, spitting image of my fella, just a little slighter and scruffier. Oh I'd love a second one. http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php...type=1&theater

My dog is currently warming my bed, the cat is in his too Zapperzy
I have a kingsize bed and I sometimes wake up to a dog and two cats pinning me down!
Thankfully little dog can't get up as she's too short and its quite high, but my daughter lifted her up a few times and I woke hanging off the edge, little dogs do take up much more space.

I was pre-warned about Shelties finding their voice between 10 and 12 weeks, apparently if it's nipped in the bud immediately you have a non-barking dog for life but if goes on until 14 weeks you have a barking dog for life .

My neighbours got 2 pups on Wednesday and they were left in the house on their own yesterday. I put my two on in the run at 3pm yesterday as I've been easing the pup into the routine my mum will have when I go back to work. Next doors pups were screaming their heads off, que barking from my pup, so I left him out there until he had stopped for half an hour, 3 hours he was out there, two and half of them barking constantly while Poppy sat on the roof of her kennel looking totally depressed. Then he had a good old bark at me for not letting him rob stuff of the table, for putting him in the crate for his nap and he had a good old bark at my niece for not wanting to play tug and one at Poppy for taking his toy. So he just didn't get his way and I threw a blanket over his crate and ignored him when he was kicking off in there. I couldn't put him out of the room for a time-out because he can't cope with that at all and makes a puddle on the floor. I still have a splitting headache from yesterday, but not one single bark today.

Is that it? Have I won Or will sods law come back and bite me tomorrow for posting this? He'll be 12 weeks on Monday, I'm back at work on Tuesday and not very confident about my mums ability not to cave and give in to him!

Swallows have begun to nest in our outhouse and the noise from my two is deafening!

This is the first year with them nesting that we've had Benson, for the past couple of years with them nesting it's just been Coco and she would bark at them for a little bit but now she has a partner in crime and it's getting bad!

Keeping them indoors just winds them up even more as the door to the outhouse is about six feet away from the french doors so they sit there and go crazy. And if the weather is nice we always leave the doors open.

When they're outside they run in and out of the outhouse after the swallows and they sit there barking at them while the swallows sit on the ridge of the house roof or the electricity wire. They momentarily stop when called but then after about a minute start barking again.

They're on high alert as well. Benson sat down and let out an audible fart. Coco went ballistic at the noise, misinterpreting it for a noise the birds might have made so then the two of them went crazy.

Of to the beach now for an extra long swim and a run, try and tire them out!
