Oh lordy... I'm so freaking tired this morning!!
Last night, we all went to bed and after an hour or so, Cooper started making noises in his kennel. I figured he was having a bad dream so I said "shhh" really softlly, hoping it would calm him down a bit.
No luck... he went from whimpering to crying to yelping over the next 30 minutes so I got out of bed, went to the kennel and opened the door (he was soundly sleeping). I put my hand in to lay it on him and try to soothe him and when I did, he BOLTED out of the kennel like he was being chased by a madman.
He went directly under the bed and for the next HOUR I tried to coax him out with treats and promises of gold and fortune but no luck. Finally, I decided to get in bed and maybe he'd eventually come out and it took about 20 minutes but he did. I put him in bed with me (something he NEVER gets to do) and we went to sleep, only to be woken up 2 hours later by the phone ringing.
Our wake up call.
He's doing much better now but for some reason, won't go NEAR his kennel. This is one of those times I wish he could talk so I could find out what the heck he was dreaming about!!
