Silly you, that spot is clearly reserved for your puppy. You only had the loan of it, so consider yourself lucky you still occasionally get to sit there.

Yes, Bruce steals our spots. He will lay on my head so I move, and he can take a pillow on the couch lol. He will also wedge himself behind us then kick our backs so he gets the space he wants. He is really good about moving/getting off the couch when told though, he just likes to be as close as he can possibly get to us (even if that means laying on moms head, which is pretty much what happens every time I lay down near him).

All the time! Even now when I'm sitting on the floor with Brandy, if I move she'll scoot over and sit where I was sitting! I think she's just trying to hog some heat...even though she has lots of blankets!

He wouldn't take it from me while sitting there, but as soon as I get up to use the washroom, or for whatever reason, it's fair game apparently.

My pup does this as well. There is only one couch she's is allowed on (so the cats can have some measure of peace on the other)

We cuddel there to watch TV or while I read. When I get up and come back she's in my spot. I've made it a game though (she does this in the car too) I tell her "Scoot over!" and snap my fingers and indicate where she is to go. Works like a charm. First few times I had to show her/move her, but she's got it now.

I teach everyone that snapping/pointing indicates where they need to be. Handy at the vet's scale or trying new things like stairs or particularly well getting my warm spot back on the couch!

How funny - look at those long puppy legs. If they are not laying in your lap then they want your spot.

I just consider it thoughtful and that they are keeping my spots warm!
