…since – I’m sorry, ML, but “Laddie” is just a dumb name for a dog. Hell, why not “Rover?” Or “Rex?”
He answers to Laddie so that’ll probably stay, but in my heart I’m going to call him Torso Boy.
Sigh – but I’m afraid we’ve figured out what he’s been after with all the middle-of-the-night alarms…
He’s fine in his own bed during the day but seems to think he needs to sleep under the blankets with a person at night. And if you let him do that, he wriggles to the bottom of the bed and you won’t hear a peep out of him till you actually sit up in the morning. If you don’t, he’ll be a nervous wreck all night long and will ambush you the moment you even begin to gain consciousness. So you may as well just let him, and then you can both go back to sleeping through peaceful nights.
We’ve been doing that the past few nights, and a lot of his nervous tics have backed off.
