The other day Alayne saw blind Owen starting to crawl underneath the blankets on the bed in the dog room. She picked up the camera to see if she could chronicle what he was going to do next. As it turned out, he decided to unmake the bed -- for reasons known only to himself.
In this next shot, he's starting to annoy blind Sophie, who is letting him know with a growl:
He decides that's not the best approach (maybe the growly bear Doxie made him think better of it) so he scampered up onto the bed:
This is where he systematically began pulling the blankets off in earnest:
Here he's starting to turn around so he can go head first like a bulldozer:
That's much better:
You can see by then that Sophie had left the scene of the crime.
Apparently Owen is sensing he's close to the edge here and takes a moment to ponder:
But the reflective moment quickly passed, and one final push sent it off the cliff:
It's as if he was wondering, "Hey, where did it all go?"
So he climbed down to check it out:
And found it very much to his liking:
Blind dogs can be ... so helpful resourceful!
