The Woos on Wednesday - Phantom's Woe


Well, here is something new at the home of The Woos.

What is happening here?



  Ciara:  Whatever do you mean?  I am just taking a nap.






 
Lightning:  Why ever would you CHOOSE to go in the crate?  I am rejoicing over finally being free from confinement in my crate overnight.

 


 Phantom:  Ummmm, excuse me, Miss Prissy Sissy, but that is MY crate!




Phantom:  What is a poor old guy of 13 1/2 to do?  No pup, even bossy Dakota, has EVER gone in my crate. 



Note from the Momster:  We have two crates and two beds in the kitchen, and Lightning's crate in the laundry room just off the kitchen.  Phantom is right, no one has ever slept in his crate before until just recently. For some reason Ciara has taken up camp in there several times.  Poor Phantom is such a good boy, he just stands there and stares at her as if to say, can you please get out?

OH NO! Phantom needs to occupy his crate I guess.

As for me, I LOVE my crate. I go in sometimes to take a snooze as well.

Phantom, I know just how you feel. ~Socks

We are wondering if Ciara feels OK since this isn't normal behavior on her part, or maybe she is scared of something and feels safe there.

Priscilla said...

Oh dear Ciara, I bet Phantom has the best crate in the world and that's why you like it so much.

May be you can talk to your big brother and borrow it when it's free as it actually is his though.

Ciara, you really ARE a pest! How could you?!?

A crate is a dogs castle. It that how the saying goes? Maybe she is just pre-warming it up for you.

Wow, that's really funny! Maybe it's that old "the grass is always greener" thing. Maybe it's like staying at a hotel. I don't know, but it's entertaining! BOL

You will have to put a "PRIVATE" sign on the door! That isn't right!

Corbin said...

Time to get a lock and key! Or maybe a secret code word...

Poor Phantom! You're such a good boy and your little Prissy Sissy is taking your crate. Maybe she's trying to get away from a certain little brofur. Hope she finds another place to camp!

Casey said...

Don't worry, Phantom! My sissy Cinderella sometimes naps in my crate too, but I don't mind. She gets the bed all nice and warm for me.

Sam said...

Poor guy - maybe posting a "No Trespassing" sign might help?

Wells dis is shockin' news! I knows hows Phantom LOVES his crate. I don't think I would be brave enoughs to go in theres.
I likes all these suggestions...security code, ne trespassing sign...and then maybe some duck tape.

Maybe Ciarra is feeling a little stressed lately and has decided that Phantoms safe spot can be her safe spot too. Think you had better make a crate condo for the two of them - side by side.

Other peoples beds are worth giving a try or are you checking which one is more comfy?

Elyse and Riley said...

Aww, poor Phantom!! He looks so confused--as he should be! Kick that pest out of there, Phantom!!! :)

jen said...

Ciara must of just realized what she is missing out on!

Jake of Florida said...

How interesting. We have something like that here: Jakey never goes into what is nominally "his crate," but Just Harry has decided it is the perfect spot for an occasional retreat. It's right next to his own dining crate, so basically he has a duplex at his disposal!

If only they could explain!!!

Suka said...

hey Phantom,

Lil' sisfurs can be so bothersome! You are an Alpha Male but are too kind for your own good. Hopefully Ciara will get the message and leave your crate when you are ready to use it. I think she just loves her big brofur so much that she wants to emulate you. :->

Good luck, Phantom! Be strong!

Prancer Pie said...

We think you should look pitifully at the Mommy person til she removes her from your crate!

Madi and Mom said...

Phantom
You my sweet, sensitive Woo are absolutely a Gentleman in every sense of the word. Bless your heart you are being so kind to your sis but I expect she is testing every nerve in your handsome body.

Hugs from your BFFF,
Madi

Ciara is just reminding them know she IS the princess!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Uh oh. So not cool, Ciara. A place fur efurry dog and efurry dog in her place, that be my motto when it comes to MY bed.

Mitch and Molly said...

You are the senior Sibe and you gotta make her get out, Phantom - Princess or not!

Love ya lots,
Mitch

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Phantom, I'm thinkin that the PRINCESS is just checkin your bed out to be sure there isn't a PEA under the mattress.

Mr. Pip said...

Well, this is NOT right! Just let me know if you would like me to come over and chase her out. Anything for my best pal,Phantom!

Your pal, Pip

Lorenza said...

Phantom!
I can see your sad face!
Maybe Ciara does it because you condo is the best in your house!
Hmmm.... well... I hope she gives it back to you!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Nola said...

Phantom, you need to tell her to get OUT of YOUR crate! That wouldn't fly in this house
Nola

Jo's World said...

Phantom, just give her the Heave-Ho and find a way to keep her out.
I think your Mom, the CEO of your Pack should really do this . Your Mom found a way to keep the Pest out of her flowers, she should be able to do something for YOU!

Kisses,
Stella

Jeanne Pursell said...

We have that very same problem going on right now here!!! Chloe is the only one who has a crate as when I adopted LadyBug, they told me they did not want me to crate her...Chloe has always had her crate from when she was just a teeny, tiny pup. She has one here and one at the cottage. Now, out of the blue, LadyBug has decided to take up residence in Chloe's crate! Chloe does the same thing...she just stands at the door staring at her as if to say ummmm...you DO know you are in MY crate, right?? What's up with that?? Weird...

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

I wonder if something has changed and Prissy Sissy feels she needs the shelter???

KB said...

Oh sweet Phantom. Something tells me that the momster will solve this problem for you. You deserve to sleep in your very own condo in peace!

Scrappy said...

Poor Phantom...someone needs to tell the story about the squeaky wheel getting the grease...

the look on his face is priceless...

like C'mon, really?

chicamom85 said...

Phantom, you have to stand your ground!! What is yours is yours, its bad enough you have to share treats and food and toys. I am sending you a combination lock in the next mail. Good luck.

Don't just stand there at stare at us to do something about Ciara, bribe her to leave. Get a piece of steak from the fridge and tie a rope on it. Put it near your crate and once you get her attention, slowly pull the rope so she leaves the crate. Then go inside and lock yourself in. That way, Ciara doesn't enter again... Oh wait, that means you can't get out either.

Oops, my bad.

Huggies and Cheese,

Sounds like somebody is testing the waters to see what she can get away with!

Sky likes to nap in his sister's crate whenever she's out and about. I think he likes his privacy. If the crates are in use or locked he stretches out on the sofa or the windowseat. He's an expert napper.

It's a Princess's prerogative!

Ciara is like our Nuka, everybody's bed is hers. Just for a while and then she moves on like Goldilocks...Poor Phantom! We feel your pain.

♥Mona + Weenie + Mommy, too♥ said...

Poor Phantom!! Nothing is sacred any more. Baby Girl took over my bed in the computer room. She can't let Mommy out of her sight either. We're alike like that.

Momy just posted another post with info fromm Aunt Judy what the flower is.

Sniff ya later...Weenie

Oskar said...

Poor Phantom looks so confused! As head of the pack I think he needs to put his foot down.
