About an hour ago Sadie started whimpering in her sleep. She normally snores pretty loud so I didn’t notice it at first. Sitting next to her on the couch, Gabriel called me over. “Hey Dad?” He scratched behind her ear. “Sadie’s having a nightmare. Look.”
“I bet she’s dreaming about chasing that rabbit in the backyard.” Her short legs were kicking and scratching while her lips curled and uncurled. We’d seen her have dreams before, and she can be pretty active in her sleep.
“She must be tired.” Melissa came in the room. “She usually wakes up when we pet her.”
Gabe scratched her exposed belly and went back to playing his game on the DSi.
