Sleepy happy dog bed

Filed under: life — letslucky @ 8:17 am

I've been travelling, and it's great to be back in the land of broadband and WiFi. Such things are lacking at my mom's house in Indiana.

I was staying with a friend who has two fabulous Labradors, Merlin and Oz. Her house has all the bedrooms on the second floor, with a door and outdoor staircase from the master bedroom. I'm sleeping in one of the kids' bedrooms, so I use the ordinary indoor stairs and go out the kitchen door downstairs.

One fine evening at 3am, Merlin comes to wake me up. This isn't normal for him, and he's giving me a little-Timmy-has-fallen-down-the-well look and is leading me to the master bedroom. I'm thinking that my friend must be strangling herself in her sheets or something, so I go to check.

Everything is fine. I go back to bed.

Merlin wakes me up again, and leads me to the master bedroom. I finally figure it out — he wants to go out, and usually when he wakes someone in the night they use the upstairs door. So I go downstairs and let him out the kitchen door. He pees like a racehorse and then happily comes back inside.

Everything is fine. I go back to bed.

Then Merlin wakes me up again, and leads me to the master bedroom. I figure that he has some unfinished business outside, so I go downstairs and open the kitchen door… but the dog doesn't come. I head back upstairs to discover that Merlin had lured me out of bed so that he could climb in. I'm such a sucker.

So I curl up with 80 pounds of damp-pawed snuffling shedding snoring dog and go back to sleep.
