We went to bed just after 11pm. I took Rodders out for a last piddle and when he came back in he went straight to his bed pad. I felt quite mean making him go in to his crate, but it does show that we need to buy another bed pad as soon as possible. He is much cosier on it.
I locked up, switched out the lights and gave him his treats and closed the crate.
There wasn't a peep from him until 7.30am when he started barking. He came out of his crate for a quick fuss and darted upstairs to check if anyone was there before coming back down to go out for a piddle.
He is still tired and has been up on the sofa with me for quite a while. He hasn't even shown any interest in food yet!
