I already knew Bear was an amazing dog anyway, but he never lets me forget just how special he really is.
Last night I started getting achy and getting the chills and just feeling downright miserable. I tried to sleep but I awoke about 130am to a very sore throat and my whole body just plain hurting. I took some Excedrin for the headache and some decongestant for hopefully my throat and I went on the couch to sleep. Bear jumped up and at first laid at my feet. I was just so miserable and sick feeling. I kept dozing off and waking up in pain. The last time I really woke up I could feel that Bear had crept up and was now laying next to me with his head and one paw on my chest. I don’t know if it was his body heat, the comfort of another living creature, or the medicine kicking in, but it felt like the chills and aches were just taken away. I got about a 4 hour block of sleep and when I woke up he was still laying on me.
I hope to be feeling better tonight though. I can’t afford to lose any more sleep than I normally do! If I’m sick again tonight I hope Bear will be there again.
