Sometime around 6:30 this morning I was awakened by an intruder in our bedroom.
It didn't make any noise, but it didn't have to. Its mere presence in the room was enough to wake me up. And when I opened my eyes, there it was on the table next to the bed. Watching us sleep with a pair of huge, creepy eyes.
I had no idea what it was or how it snuck in, but I really wanted it OUT. So I woofed. And nothing happened. My human and brother Dutch snoozed away, the creepy trespasser wasn't fazed one bit. I escalated my threats to a more serious woof-woo-woo-woo! But the thing still didn't budge. Neither did Dutch or my human.
It was clearly up to me to save us all, so I jumped on my human's head and let loose a loud growl/howl combo. The intruder didn't flinch, but I definitely got everyone else's attention. Dutch let out a very loud reflex-bark. And even though it was obvious he had no idea what was going on, I totally appreciated the back-up. My human joined in the barking next:
PUGLET! What are you DOING?!?
I motioned to the intruder on the table.
Ugh. Puglet, that's YOU. It's just a PICTURE of YOU. Go to sleep.
And that was it. She went back to sleep and left me alone with the scary picture. Of myself.
I'm going to keep a close eye on Mr. Intruder, just in case my human is wrong about the whole picture-of-me thing. I mean, the way people gush over me, you'd think I'd be waaaay cuter than that. And a whole lot less creepy. Right??
