I left Rodders curled up on snuggle fleece while I went upstairs to hang up the wet washing. He did lift his head and I told him I would only be a minute and to stay there.
He did for a little while and then he trotted down to the lounge door and made some very strange squeaky noises, louder than his usually puppy noises. When I came back down the stairs he did jump up the lounge door until I opened it and was jumping up my legs making squeaky puppy noises until I lifted him up for a snuggle. He licked me as though I had been away hours rather than just a few minutes.
He was happy to go straight back on snuggle fleece. I think he has been asleep more than awake this morning!
