Step 1: Wait until your Mom or Dad gets up to go to the bathroom. This might take some patience.
Step 2: When you hear the bathroom door shut, make your move! Creep up to take the empty place they left behind. Be careful to move slowly, or you'll wake up whoever else is in the bed!
Step 3: Carefully place your head onto the pillow. They will have left behind a warm spot, which can be quite nice. But I myself prefer a cooler spot just to the side of where they were laying.
Step 4: Fidget and kick until the blankets cover you to your liking.
Step 5: When you hear Them coming back, quickly close your eyes and make a satisfied, sleepy sound. I tend to go with the, "snort, Snort, SNORT, sigggghhhhhhh..." It's an old favorite, and it never fails to win Mom and Dad over.
Step 6: Enjoy your Human Sleep! If you've followed the steps correctly, They won't want to disturb you from such a comfy position. You might even get some scritches behind the ears if you're being extra cute and convincing!
Remember, this is only one part of learning how to Human - there's lots more to learn, but practice makes perfect! So go ahead - steal Their pillows! (Let's face it, they're basically just rectangle-shaped dog beds anyway.)
Does your dog know how to Human?
