Another mystery solved

It all started maybe six or so years ago. . .
At first we thought that there were some other people that were living in our house. For real!

Then we realized this just can't be, I mean we never see anyone else or hear any unexplained noises when we are home. But still...something very odd was going on.

So we concluded that there must be some vagabonds that snuck in our house each day. Nothing was ever missing-no food was eaten, the TV set was still there, the dogs seemed OK.
But you see, everyday we come home and this is what we would find

Obviously someone was coming into our house and sleeping in our beds. And not just that, they never made them back up again, they left that for me! And it was both beds, ours and the guest room shown here in this "crime scene". There must have been more than one of em.

We figured when we moved from Florida to Tennessee that naturally this would stop. Certainly these "sleepers" wouldn't follow us.

Well we were wrong, and not only did they follow but it got worse... there were more of them! Now Simone's bed was being slept in also. Actually hers seemed to be used the most, every day! Almost every day when I got home from work I would have re-make the other two beds, but hers I always had to.

And then the other day I happened upon a scene that explained it all...
I was thinking that they had obviously been in our room and the guest, and I knew they were still there because I could hear them scampering!

I crept into Simone's room and heard a rustling and scratching and I thought "Aha, I've caught them"! I saw just a fluffy grey & black tail and furry rump sticking out from under the covers, up in the air. And then the culprit appeared!

"Busted" I yelled!

And can you believe who it was...

It was Oliver! And here he is trying so hard not to look as guilty as he really is! He wouldn't even make eye contact once I got the camera!

Silly boy!
So obviously my mood has swung back to goofy...and obviously this is all I have to write about. Nothing poetic or endearing or intelligent even, just a silly story about my pooch. BTW, I gave him a fantastic hair cut this weekend so he looks about 10 pounds lighter and very cute! Yes, he did hide under the chair and leaning against the wall in the office for the whole thing, so it's not as professional as one might like,
but he can pull it off!
And since I haven't had any pics of my darling, here's a silly one of her. Seriously, she makes these poses up herself!

Well that story lightened my day any way! Hope it did yours!
