Late night warden

Summer is fast approaching, and last night was one of the first nights where it was a little too warm to sleep comfortably. So when we went to bed, we left the bedroom door open for Louise. This gave her the option of wandering into the living room if she wanted, which she did. It was a little cooler there and well, let's face it - she's not a fan of too much heat.

Anyhow, as we were settling down, my wife and I were chatting a bit before we fell asleep. After a few minutes of talk, we heard the clickety-clack of Louise's paws on the wood floor as she wandered into the bedroom. At first we thought she was checking on us, but after the third or fourth time we got the hint. She was coming in to quiet us down. We would talk, she would come in, we would go quiet and she would return to the living room. If we got too noisy again later, in would wander Louise - until we were ready to settle down. My wife and I got a chuckle out of this and decided we would call it a night - to sleep soundly while under watch by our new 'warden'.

Oh yeah - this morning the warden was dropped off at the doggie spa. She is getting the total treatment today - nails trimmed, hair shampooed and trimmed, ears cleaned, 'other places' cleaned, etc. She wanted to be sure she was looking good for the pug picnic, which is coming up on the 28th.

What a cute story. Just like a mama telling the kids to quiet down and lights out. She is such a cutie.

Pugs really do rule the house, don't they? :-)
