I had a nightmare last night. It happens from time to time. Sometimes it’s easy to go back to sleep, but often it’s not. Last night was easier than usual, thanks to the handsome guy in the photo.
I happen to be dog-sitting this week. This adorable fellow was asleep, with his little tongue sticking out (isn’t that cute?) at the foot of the bed right around the time I went to sleep. Hours later I woke up, startled and upset. Before I could even remember where I was, he got up from the foot of the bed, came over to me, and cuddled up by my chest. I reached out to pet him, and he began licking my arm.
Before I had time to think about it, I was asleep again. I woke up hours later with this guy back at the foot of the bed. I don’t know when he moved. I just know he was there when I needed him.
How lucky can a girl get?
Dogs are fantastic companions. My poodle seems to know when I’m having a panic attack. He climbs up on me and snuggles up on my chest, his head pressing against my chin.
Ahh unconditional love!!
Aw, that’s wonderful! That’s exactly what I’m hoping for! Which kind of poodle do you have?
He’s a miniature, the middle size. I’ve had poodles my whole life bc of allergies.
I got this one when I became too disabled to work. I trained him to be my companion, so he spends all day on my lap pretty much! He will call (whine) to my husband if I need him. He will pick up things I drop.
I can’t imagine life without him!!
He sounds wonderful! I’d love to know more about how you trained him. Would you be willing to tell me more? You can email me at msrants at gmail.com
