I was cooking when Speedy arrived home with a crate for Astro. Sick and all, and he still went out to meet with a client. I know that some of the top brass in his company read my blog so, read this — my husband deserves a medal and a 1000% raise hehehehe
I don’t know whether it was him or Alex who moved Astro’s toys from his sleeping basket to the crate. Alex came into the kitchen describing how Astro took to the crate. Speedy placed a few pieces of dog treats inside to lure Astro in. But the smart dog placed his front feet inside the crate and stretched his body to reach the treats without actually going all the way inside. Well, the door’s been left open. He’ll realize soon enough that it’s his new sleeping quarters.
After a few hours, Astro had gone inside the crate, and out again, a couple of times. Not bad. I told Speedy Astro might like it better if we placed a cushion or an old pillow inside the crate — he loves sleeping on the pillows under my desk, after all, leaving little space for my feet. Speedy suggested a clean floor mat and all that talk about making the crate more comfortable and inviting for Astro gave me a thought.
I said aloud while composing an entry for Pinoy Cook, “Astro, should we have your crate interior decorated?”
Alex, whom I thought had drowsed off, replied, “Yes, and I want it with flowers.”
Flowers? I don’t think so. Besides, it was just a joke. :roll:
Anyway, after roaming around and around, Astro finally got tired. He went straight under my desk and soon his eyes were closed. I asked Speedy to move him so he can get used to sleeping in the crate. Speedy moved him, and one pillow, into the crate.
There must be something about the pillow. Astro didn’t object. I just hope that that “something” is the soft comfort that the pillow offers rather than any residual smell of my feet.
