A couple of days ago Kate and Alayne noticed that our new arrival, blind Billy, kept going into the mud room by the back door and re-arranging the boots and shoes so he could sleep on the boot mat. Three times they picked him up and put him in the dog room, then put the footwear back in place. Three times he found his way back and insisted on sleeping there. That's when Alayne got the camera out.
He's wearing a soft cone in the photo because of his eye surgery, but Dr. Hoy removed his sutures yesterday so he is now cone-free. And since the cone came off he hasn't returned to this spot. Perhaps wearing a soft, rubbery black thing on his head made him feel a certain kinship with the soft, rubbery black boots. Who knows?
