Wintery Mornings

It is winter now.  In the  mornings, when Mum comes to open the back door for us, it is still dark. We quickly zip out to check the back yard to make sure everything is just where we left it last night. Then we go back into our snug cubby beds.
With the back door open, there is a definite coolness drifting into the garage and up and around our nether portions. Brr.

We can hear Dad moving around doing his showering and face-scraping activities. So, we go into the lounge and curl up on the chairs.

And we wait,

and we wait........

until we hear the click of the front door and the noise of the car starting up. That means that Dad has gone off to work. 

We creep down the hall to the bedroom where Mum and Dad sleep.  They have a lovely big bed and, when Dad has left, Mum goes back to sleep for a while.  There is a whole side of that really big bed unoccupied. So we have decided that it would be very helpful thing if we were to keep that side warm for Mum. We wouldn't want her to feel lonely in that really big bed.

Heidi goes to check on Mum. She snuffles her face up as high as she can to touch Mum's hand or face or whatever she can reach.  If Mum is still awake, we have to be content to lie on the floor next to the really big bed and wait a bit longer.
But if Mum is asleep, we ever so quietly and gently hop up onto the bed beside her.  
Hee hee.
Heidi goes up near Dad's pillow, because she is lighter and can step more gently than me. I have big paws and I tend to be heavy footed (according to Heidi) no matter how careful I am.
I settle down at the bottom of the really big bed.  
It is so comfortable and so snuggly. We curl up and go to sleep until Mum wakes up.
It is the perfect crime.  

There is only one thing that can go wrong.  

Sometimes a particularly putrid odour wafts around the room.  Where it comes from, I am not sure...but when that happens, Mum becomes aware of our presence. We are then requested, none too politely, to leave the bedroom and return to our own beds.  Pfft!

However, in my opinion, winter mornings are rather pleasant when one can share a comfy bed with one's human.
