Doggie Davenport, or Canine Couch?

Can't decide what to call this bed now.....

These photos were taken yesterday in our guest room (a/k/a my home office.... where I do my work, and also type all my blogs... and sip cocktails, and think profound thoughts...)

Anyway. This bed used to be our guest bed.... but, as you can see, it has been seized by the dogs for a "higher purpose". And I doubt any humans will ever want to sleep on it again.

Seriously, though, it has been years since anyone ever slept here anyway.... the mattress was a garage sale purchase, years ago, and cleverly covered by a pretty quilt.... yet the mattress was so lumpy and so springy that it made for a HORRIBLE night's sleep.
So, as far as I'm concerned, the pups can have at it.

So, blogger buddies, what is the general concensus for a new name for this piece of furniture?
Shall we call it.....

  • Doggie Davenport?

  • Canine Couch?

  • Labrador Lounge?

I like the Doggie Davenport.

Wow, Diva is getting so big!! That last photo, where she is behind your big dog (forgot her name, sorry!) is priceless. I love her little ears so sprightly!!

Sipping cocktails while blogging...why haven't I thought of this before? I bet my posts would be very British and clever ( I seem to get accents the more I drink).

Hey D'Arce! :-)
Yes, Ruby is our other dog.... she's got some Lab in her, and probably some sort of Spaniel.... so that makes her a (drum roll please....) "Spanador". (That's really the official name, I didn't just make that up.)

Yes, I have my gin & tonics up here.... although I'm not much of a drinker, it definitely takes the "edge" of financial worries, I have found. ;-)

When do you have to be back in the classroom?

I really like that color blue in your lab lounge.

Maybe I'll paint my office that color.

My goodness how your new dog has grown! I did a double take when I saw these pics.

Right now, I'm sipping tapwater. But sometimes I go so far as to sip green tea! (Of course, in the mornings, it's always strong coffee.)
