This afternoon, I called J (down at his shop) on cellphone to say I had to take a 20 min nap, and was bringing Ivan in to keep him from barking (I’ve been burning the candle at both ends trying to get work done for M.A. show in May, along with classes, work, farm…. Short naps enable me to function.) I hung up the phone, turned around, looking for dogs (nowhere to be seen), headed toward the stairs, and there was Zuzu 1/2 way up the stairs, waiting for me to come up to bed. Man, she is quick! And perceptive. They listen when I talk on the phone?!? –Said nothing about naps to them ahead of time… She overheard the magic word and rushed to the steps…. She loves her beauty rest.
