The night after I have worked many night shifts in a row, I usually can't sleep. This annoys my dogs. Having had my queen sized bed all to themselves for 5 nights, they are not pleased that I have returned and not only claimed my section of the bed (top right corner) but I am keeping them awake with the light still on and the incessant typing. How rude.
Madison keeps growling at me every time I move. It's like "HEY! I'm sleeping here!" Montel is a little less aggressive with his annoyance. Every time I get in the way, he gets up and moves so I am not bothering him. He does it with an air of indignation that lets me know I have interrupted his life.
One of my joys (other than being in their way in my own bed) is to watch them sleep. I do this mostly because it's one of the few times they are well behaved, not fighting with each other and not annoying me. I've been sitting here watching them sleep (which sounds creepier than I intended) for a while now. They are both calm and breathing slowly until Montel starts twitching in his sleep.
I figured he was chasing rabbits. But then he starts wagging his tail. Slowly at first and then faster and faster. What kind of dog wags his tail in his sleep? I couldn't keep from laughing and the muffled snorts woke him up. He looked over his shoulder at me like "Are you still here?" and went back to sleep.
