Any Berner owner will tell you that Berners like to be where the action is and this usually translates into sticking like a limpet to their owners. I have lost count the number of times I have opened the bathroom door to trip over a patient Berner waiting for my return, or turned from the sink and tripped over a large dog lying behind me watching my every move. As Elf is a particularly close Berner this picture should come as no surprise as this is what is at my feet as I type. She has brought her pups to join us and I have a very noisy furry footwarmer. The chew marks on the chair leg are from Ripley who usually lies here when there's less competition!
