I have mentioned before that Bunny sleeps on our bed with us. Treat, our first Greyhound, decided that it was a good way to fight off the Winter chill, and I was surprised and secretly, a little elated when Bunny decided that she wanted to sleep up there with us on the very first night she was here. There are some nights that she chooses to sleep on the couch or a dog bed, at least initially, but almost every morning, I wake up to find her curled up between us on the bed.
I'm not sure when she decided that it was the place to curl up. She was sleeping on Mr. Taleteller's side of the bed under his quilt when I fell asleep. It's not the first time I've woken up to find her sleeping close to me, but it was the first time I've woken with her head resting perfectly on my shoulder.
Of course, when I started to wake up, she had ideas that I should pet her. That velvet fur of hers is hard to resist. Even though it's so hypnotic to lay under the covers and start dozing off until she rolls her little head over on me and makes sure I stay awake and keep petting her, it's still about the most wonderful wake up I can think of. I didn't even mind that I was awake that early on a Saturday.
It's just nice to wake up to that kind of trust and adoration in such a sweet way sometimes. This weekend promises to be extremely busy for us. I'll be wishing I was back under the covers with her the whole time I'm at all the family Christmas parties, that's for sure!
