Yesterday after we let the dogs back in from their mid-day potty break outside, blind Allie the Lab wandered through the laundry room, came back into the dog room, and for some reason — the first time ever — decided to get into the laundry basket (a.k.a. custom dog bed) by the door. Alayne watched her try to climb in and get herself turned around. To put it mildly, this was a rather awkward exercise of a large dog milling about in a small space. Alayne went to get the camera. When she returned, Allie had settled herself in a stiff sitting position.
We have no idea why she suddenly decided to try and fit inside this laundry basket. She definitely filled it with no room to spare:
We’ve posted several photos of various dogs in that basket over the years, but I think Allie is probably the biggest dog to give it a go! In case you’re wondering, after a couple of minutes contemplating the physics of her situation, Allie abandoned the basket for more comfortable accommodations.
