It’s so easy for me to take a nap when my mom and dad are talking to each other.  Oh, it’s not because they’re boring…far from that.  In fact, they are really pretty silly together. 

I nod off cause the sound of their voices makes me feel safe, relaxed and loved.  And there are certain words that they say like ‘Lucy’, ‘love’, ‘walk’ and ‘food’  that take me straight to dreamland.

But, my friends, have no doubt, these ears are on autopilot!  It is my duty and honor to keep my mom and dad safe from all dangers in the world. 

I’m always on alert (yep, even when I’m snoring!)
