Our dog, Spike, was peacefully sleeping on the couch when my husband decided to get her attention by throwing (clean!) laundry at her. She was much too content to respond and seemed to like her new blankets.
The cat, Opel (spelling from the rescue agency), absolutely cannot resist laying on clean laundry. Apparently it does not matter even if the clean laundry happens to be on top of the dog. And the dog didn’t seem to care either.
These animals are both about 10 years old and have lived together in the same house for 7 years. Up until now, neither has barely acknowledged that the other even existed.
