In bed waiting for sleep to take me off for a few hours but nothing is happening. So just listening to the wind and rain battering the window. Then…

The sound of pattering dog feet coming closer, quickly developing into sprint mode. In those circumstances all you can do is just brace for impact.

But not needed this time. Yes he launched himself onto my bed but then stopped a few inches from my face. As my eyes adjusted to the darkness a strange vision was revealed. Pup carrying one of his toys, a battered reindeer. He looked at me for a few seconds then carefully dropped the teddy next to my head. And with that the pup jumped off the head and I heard him sprint back into his bed. Few minutes later I could hear him snoring.

What was I supposed to do with Mr Reindeer. So I tucked Mr Reindeer in bed next to me and I suppose he slept well – certainly better than me.

  1. Our Tsi-poodle is like that. He would bring the battered head of his stuff toy and will give it to you when he wants to play. You throw it away and he would gladly fetch it back. When I am in front of the PC, he would place himself near my feet, then you would him him snore ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. All animals are smarter than we give them credit for. My dog and cat didn’t sleep on my bed til after I lost Nick. Now they both cuddle with me. The dog (Jegs) does not surprise me. However the cat (Sprint) does. He didn’t want much to do with me as long as Nick was around. Now? He’s all over me. All the time. Almost annoying until he snuggles up all soft and warm when I am trying to go to sleep. Having my hand on his side is comforting. (Sprint is a 16lb Main Coon…solid black, long hair, piercing eyes and a tail a mile long)
