If there is one thing Gibson takes very seriously besides eating, it's sleeping. If he gets less than 18hrs of sleep a day he is not a happy camper. He sleeps pretty much the entire time that Ben and I are at work, and then he starts winding down again around 7 or 8 at night. He'll hop up on *HIS* chair, or if we are being too loud, he'll go into the other room where his dog bed is. By 9 o'clock, neither of these options are comfy enough, so he starts letting us know that it is bed time. How? Well, by hopping up on the stairs and giving us this look...
It's his, "It's bedtime, ma!" look. It is the most pathetic thing ever. He usually will start at the bottom stairs, and inch his way up every few minutes.. hoping that we'll give in and carry him the rest of the way to the bed. It is way too funny. If we take too long, we'll eventually look over and he's not there and then we hear a thud from upstairs which means he jumped up on the bed. He's a serious sleeper.
The first time he did this we about died. He never went upstairs by himself and definitely never jumped up the bed. We were watching tv and couldn't figure out where he was.. we looked everywhere and then finally checked our bedroom. There he was fast asleep. Such a little dork :)
Does your corgi have a night time routine? Does he sleep in bed w/you or have his own private spot? :)
