We never let Nora on the couch and she knows it's off limits. I got distracted reading an email the other night and looked over to find THIS right next to me. She was so still and quiet and wouldn't even look at me. It was too cute to move her, so I had to catch a couple pictures first. Oh and by the way, this dog loves watching TV. She will get mesmerized by the screen and jumps up right next to it if any dogs appear.
