At night, setting a book down, closing a lap top or turning off the TV, signals the end of the day at our house. The dogs know how it goes and begin their own bed time routine. A drink of water, finding a kong to take upstairs and last call for outside. Now that Ardi is 14, she sleeps very soundly and doesn’t always see or hear the cues. I’ve noticed lately that Nugget has added one more job to her routine. At the 1st sign that it’s bed time Nugget starts looking for Ardi in her usual sleeping spots and wakes her up. Once she has her up she wags and wiggles until Ardi follows her upstairs or to the door. It is really heartwarming to watch.
