Why? I Don’t Understand…

Why do the dogs get the coffee table confused with the floor?

The other day, the Dachshund was sitting on the coffee table. He hopped down, took a lap around the house and next thing I knew he was lounging on the coffee table??

Things that belong on the coffee table:

Remote controls, books, magazines, the newspaper, snacks and drinks,  laptops…our feet.

Things that DO NOT belong on the coffee table:


And certainly not large, furry, 85+ pound Golden Retriever dogs…

Of course, that might be the problem. Nobody scolded him. We were too busy laughing.

Our coffee table is old. It was in my house 35 years ago when I was a kid and I stripped the top and repainted the bottom years ago.

I was thinking of getting a new, pretty one.

But really, WHY?

If I did that, I might not be laughing. And I’d far rather be laughing…
