Multi-tasking lap dog

Are you ever used as a book rest?

Gail has been engrossed in some weighty volumes these lockdown times.

I'm beginning to think it's time she got a Kindle. Before I need to be renamed 'Flattened Bertie' ...


  1. I have to double as a book rest too sometimes. And she wonders why I chew books.

  2. the mama bought a book rest for her reader... but it is a plush toy (a snowman lol) and so reading becomes very special LOL

  3. You might still be used as a bookrest even if Gail gets a Kindle, but at least it will be lighter!
    Are you going to add bookrest to your CV!

    Well, Bertie lad, you are saving Gail a few pennies, as book rests can be a pricey item!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Flatten Bertie..oh you are such a funny WFT.
    I recently signed up for ebooks with Barnes and Noble...I'm on the fence so far. I still love having a book in my paws and the lovely new book smell in my nose. Of course I'm not reading anything quite that heavy.

  6. Flattened Bertie would not be a good thing! I've never been used as a book rest - yet.

  7. Not a bookrest, but I'm a regular arm rest when Momma's sewing.

  8. We think Gail should get smaller books or invest in a Kindle so you don't get flattened. You do look content to be napping on her lap though.

  9. Well, Bertie, that's quite a tome. I hope Gail can speed read. In the alternative, I suggest she provide more delicious, high protein treats, to keep up your strength.

    1. Gail is not a speed reader, so I am awaiting my high protein treats....

  10. Wow, you are the best book rest ever!And such a heavy book too...are you sure you are not a working breed Bertie? Because that looks like hard work!

  11. Wow Bertie...what a multi-faceted guy you are!

  12. Just keep moving....she may get the hint.

  13. Well, you can add this duty to your resume.

  14. BOL - Flat Bertie would not be a good thing. Our Mom loves her kindle app. She gets library books on it and buys some too. She can multitask too - reading, doing her exercises, and petting us. But we aren't on her lap:)

  15. Ha ha ha ha! After using a kindle for years, I have trouble holding up a book for reading in bed. And none of my dogs are as helpful as you are, Bertie, in propping up the book.

  16. Ma has a kindle and loves it, butts she does miss the new book smell ☺
    She is lucky you are so accommodating, I wouldn't be so still! BOL!
