LOL as soon as Hooch is on the bed he just drops unconscious. Like hypnotised, knows bed is for sleeping.. even if he is totally hyper.
He did fall off my bed once when I had a nana nap during the day.. but because his body is a little bit beagly-sausagey half of his body was on the floor while the rest was on the bed (high bed too). If it didnt freak me out it would have been very funny. Took him 30 seconds to understand what had happened.
Hooch only gets on the bed if invited. I actually took the idea from someone here - I dont remember who said it? I just remember reading it early on and thought - I should do that. He knows and he never gets on the bed until I tell him to. He would sit there staring intensely at me wagging his tail until I say Hooch up!
