Bedgehog

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /bej-hog/

Sentence: Bandit had started out as a cute Border Collie puppy, but now he'd grown into a huge bedgehog. Not only did Bandit hog all the pillows and yank the comforter to the other side of the bed, but he had literally pushed Stewart out of his own bed three nights in a row. Stewart decided to seek professional help, and started wondering how hard it was to contact that 'It's Me Or the Dog' lady. What was her name again?...

Pronunciation: baad fel lo

Sentence: Baaraack Obaamaa had shared Cissie & Oscar's bed since he was a little lamb. Every night he jumped up onto the spread and cuddled in and became their baadfellow. The only problem was that now he was full grown and weighed a good 200 pounds, there was no room for him...he could no longer pull the wool over their eyes. Every night was an udder nightmare, as he kicked like Dan Merino in his sleep. "How can we tell him he's not human and needs to go into the farmyard and find himself a wife?", asked Cissie. "We just set him out and make him find his own way...it's tough love!", said Oscar. They enjoyed about 6 months of peace, until one cold night, their door was rammed open and in walked Baaraack Obaamaa, his Embraceable Ewe and their triplet lambs: Rambo, Ewelysses and José Fleeciano. It was when they all piled onto Cissie & Oscars bed and settled in for a nice warm sleep that Cissie & Oscar realized one thing. You really cannot get to sleep by counting sheep!

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: co dee PET ent

Sentence: You know how 1-year-olds move around a lot when they sleep and wind up in funny and cute positions? And how if you sleep with them, you sometimes end up with a foot or a butt in your face? Well, it isn't so cute when they are 8 and still in your bed, but taking up a lot more room, and you get kicked or punched all the time. So you have to feel bad for Indy Cysive, whose 8-year-old happened to be a chimpanzee who still insisted on sleeping in Indy's bed every night. Indy had even bought a special bed just for Harry the chimp, but every night when she tried to put Harry in it, he whimpered and wrapped his arms around her. Indy secretly missed those chimp baby years when he had needed her so much, and she was too much of a codepetent to say no to Harry. So the expensive pet bed remained unused. And almost every morning, Indy woke to find a fuzzy arm draped over her face. At least Harry was willing to keep his diapers on, since he did weigh 150 pounds by then.

Etymology: codependent + pet
