ever since we acquired hobbes into our life, i must say that i love the time between 9:30 and around 11pm. that’s the time where hobbes and i spread out on the master bed, watch ‘friends’ on dvd and pass out.
he takes awhile to settle but just having him curl up next to me every now and then is SUCH a stress-reliever that i actually fall asleep a lot faster. by the time he settles (usually against my leg where he uses it as a pillow for his head), i’m pretty much out as well.
doug then takes him out just before 11pm for his last potty trip. we let him settle down a bit on our bed before carrying him off to his crate for bedtime.
