Part two of the Big Lost Dog Story Big Lost Dog was whining, so I sat down on the floor and gave him a hug. He put both paws on either side of my neck with his head resting on mine, and hugged me back. Then gently removed my hat with his mouth and stole away with it.
A few minutes later, tired from his night of Grim and Ancient Wandering, he elected to sleep in bed with me. I didn't invite him he just jumped right up, and here he is.
