Mommy has been having back problems, so she got herself a new mattress and I had to help move the old one out of the bedroom. Dylan was supposed to help me.
But he didn't. I pushed and pushed the old mattress, but Dylan didn't help one bit.
He just hung on and let me do all the work.
He wouldn't even help lift it.
Finally, I got the mattress into the hall. I was so tired I had to take a nap.
I looked back to see if I forgot anything, but I hadn't.
When I got it past the bathroom, I thought if I pulled on the door, I could get a little leverage to move the mattress better.
When I got it around the corner, I stopped to look at the picture. That picture has a dog and a puppy in it. It would look better with a cat. I will have to get another picture to hang there.
Then I had to get busy pushing the mattress again. Finally I got it past the living room doors.
Soon I had it at the front door. Now I needed to open the door, but it is not easy if you don't have opposable thumbs.
I pushed and pushed.
Finally, I had to go back and get help.
Soon the mattress was outside.
I went back to get the box spring.
The box spring looks kind of crummy because Chloe and Jim-Bob pulled the bottom cover off it when they were little kitties.
I stopped to look sat another picture when I went down the hall. Maybe I dozed off.
The next thing I knew I was downstairs and the door was closed, so I missed moving in the new mattress and springs. But I had seen them in the lawn after Daddy had pulled them out of Mommy's truck.
After Mommy let me back upstairs, I checked out the new mattress. It was firmer than the other one. I like a soft bed, but Mommy said this one would be better for her back.
I helped put on the new sheets. I had to go under cover to get the job done.
My tail looks like a zipper.
But it don't unzip.
I like these new sheets. My tan hairs will show up real good on them.
Maybe I can get used to this new bed.
