Servant of the furry ones
A funny thing happened to me in the wee hours of the morning when it was still too dark to see. I had been awakened by one dog, Puppy (who is not a puppy anymore!), from a deep sleep by the scratching on the door. He just gives a scratch with one paw over and over again until I wake up and let him in. I went back to sleep and was eventually woken up again by a whining outside the door. This was Piglet, Puppy's father who just stands and whines until I get up. So I hauled myself out of bed again, opened the door for a second and closed it again. Get back in bed and settle down again.....and there's that whining again. The dog was still outside the room. Get up again and peer into the dark. Piglet is standing a little way away from my door outside the bathroom door and doesn't move until I say, "Come on Piglet!" Only then does he run in. He was waiting for an invitation.
And we finally got to rest again!
