A few nights ago, I was sound asleep until 3:46AM, when I was prodded awake by the repeated head-butting of a certain Labrador Retriever. Worried that he might be unwell, I sat up and attempted to ascertain the cause of his actions. He continued with the head-butting. I calmly and quietly requested that he cease head-butting me. Since I was up, I decided to use the bathroom. Upon my return, I found that MY spot on the bed had been stolen by Beckett, who had fallen back asleep with his head on my pillow.
A few nights ago, I was roused from my sound sleep by the knowledge that my mom was having terrible nightmares. I did what any heroic dog would do - I gently nudged her a few times to wake her up. Clearly still under the influence of these nightmares, she rather testily screeched at me, but I kept at my course of action until I was sure she was no longer suffering from nightmares. When she got up to go to the bathroom, I temporarily moved into her spot on the bed in order to keep it warm for her, but, alas, I was so worn out by my acts of nighttime heroism that I accidentally fell asleep there.
