Clovie gets free reign of half the house almost every night. (The other half is for Minnow, our cat.) He heads up the stairs and hangs out. We can hear him race up and down the hallway and the heavy thump of his back feet as he roams around the rooms upstairs.
Before I go to bed I clean up his litter box, his hay box, refresh his hay and water. Sometimes he comes down when I am doing this. Often he comes down around 10 PM which is close to bedtime. Does he have a sense of what time it is?
Every once in a while I need to go upstairs and round him up. Usually he is in the bonus room. So I call him, "Clovie! C'mon Buddy it's beddy bye time. Do you want your treat?"
And it always surprises me that he follows me downstairs, just like a little puppy.
