Puppy Anecdotes make Everything Better.

I've been sick for the past month.  I think it started with West Nile Fever.  A mild case, but enough to knock out my immune system, so that I then got an opportunistic head cold and strep throat.  I'm on the mend.  It just sucks.

In this time, Cinder has picked up a habit.  Whenever I go to bed to take a nap or to sleep for the night, he wants to play but eventually realizes that I intend to sleep.  After he's decided that I'm going to sleep, he walks out of the bedroom.  A few seconds later he starts intermittent barking.

I'm not sure, but I think he's going around to everything that makes noise in the house -- the refrigerator, the cable TV box, and Jack (who by now is doing nothing noisier than breathing) -- and Cinder is telling them all, "Be quiet!  Daddy's sleeping!"

Once he's done, he lays at the foot of my bed and noisily chews on a toy until I'm asleep.

Jack thinks Cinder is crazy, which he may well be since he takes after his owner.

"Keep it down! Knock it off!" How funny. Silly pup.
