Sleeping Giant

Last weekend we raised our bed up on risers so we could store more stuff under it, as well as get the bed skirt off the floor.

Last night, Ben discovered the whole new world awaiting him under the bed.

As we were getting ready to go to sleep, Benny stuck his nose under the bed-skirt and started nosing around. Being the kind and helpful "parents" we are - A and I encouraged him to go under and check it out. So he did.

When Ben was little, he'd wriggle under the bed and get stuck and growl and warble at the mean ol' bed for "trapping" him - having a grand old time. And then he'd do it all over again a day later. He hasn't done that in a long time - probably a year and a half or so - because he got too big. So, imagine his delight when he could, once again, fit under the bed.

His delight was so much so, that last night, he burrowed under the bed, found a toy he'd lost and stayed there, chewing on it. All. Night. Long.

We heard his habitual groan when we shut out the lights, signaling he was ready for sleep, and then he just stayed put. In fact, Ben slept under our bed all night long, until we started waking up about 6:15.

What a weird dog. Is he even a dog? That's definitely more like a cat. Either way - weirdo.

Our dog (ok, my mom's dog) likes to curl up under either computer desk, facing the wall and right on top of all the power cords. I think dogs are just weird in their own ways, just like cats are weird in their own ways.

Haha you sounds like you've trained a baby to sleep through the night.
