Since Jasper is a pet and not a possession, Andrew and I decided pretty early on that he would be “allowed on the furniture”…
*dun dun duuuuuuuuuun*
It seems widely discouraged by most dog owners, but we felt that it is a little stricter than we wanted to be. Also: look at his face! How could you not want cuddles on the couch with that!?!
This picture, though, shows Jasper disobeying the one rule we do impose: no climbing on the back. It is a relatively low couch and after only two days, he took to simply jumping over the back of it whenever anyone called him from, say, the kitchen or hallway.
I’d argue the look on his face suggests he knows what he’s doing, and that he’s not meant to be doing it!
