Scooter here. I thought you would like to know how I relax. Maybe you could try it if you are feeling stressed. I keep my front paws straight out, stiff as a board, for many long times. Sometimes I sleep like this. Don't worry, Mom can't figure it out either.
That's her Amish Center Diamond quilt on the wall. That's because she didn't measure the bed until the quilt was finished and it was too late to make it fit. We have lots of quilts like that hanging around the house. I don't usually give quilting advice, but I think you should measure the bed first and then make the quilt fit the bed.
See the rug made out of thrift shop shirts on the floor? Nobody is allowed to walk on it, or sleep on it, or nothing. Not even Dad. Mom is very strict about that. She is making another rug. We won't be able to step on that one either. If you want to make a stupid, useless rug too, and stick it right where your dog would like to sleep, she has a free tutorial here.
I have had a wonderful summer running around the yard and barking at the lawn mowers. I stop when Mom whistles me to come. Trouble is she's not very good at whistling. She sticks her fingers in her mouth and blows, but the whistle part only works about half the time. The rest of the time it's just spit. I don't come when people spit. That's my new rule, mostly because I can't hear when they spit.
Mom also has an empty water bottle with pebbles in it. I am supposed to be afraid of it and stop barking whenever she shakes it. But I like it, so I stop whatever I'm doing and run right to Mom. She just can't figure me out.
