You expect to be woken at night by your baby. But when it’s your dogs as well as your baby, you know you’ve had a bad night!
Freddie usually sleeps through now, but lately he’s had a slight cold so has been waking a couple of times.
Harvey our golden retriever, on the other hand, seems to have eaten too much ‘fox pate’ in the garden.
Several times the other night he started with the whimper routine – the one you can’t sleep through.
But after the fourth trip putside with him, my annoyance was replaced by laughter.
Watching the relief on a dog’s face and hearing the sound of ‘10 trumpeters trumpeting’ echo around the garden at 4am is pure comedy gold!
