Cosy nights

Before I get into bed, I always check on Galileo, who sleeps on the carpet on Clive’s side next to Joules.

It’s not that I expect him to be anything other than supremely comfortable.

It’s just that some of his poses are so cute.

Here he’s made himself the perfect little nest in his blanket and is curled up as tight as a snail.

Here he’s on his back, squirming with pleasure at the warmth of Joules’ fur, while Joules himself is out for the count!

Little brown Buddha

Two of them!

Two of them!

A while back Joules had the annoying habit, when I called him, of sitting erect, stock still, listening and watching, but not budging.

I used to say he was doing his ‘little brown Buddha’ trick.

This morning I wasn’t calling him, but there he was, motionless and observant, against the backdrop of the frosty hillside.

I was just about to take his photo when Kepler appeared and sat a few feet lower down the ‘dog path’ which winds up the hill.

He adopted exactly the same pose, so now there were two little brown Buddhas!
