I seem to be driving Red Toes crazy lately, my frst tactic to drive her crazy was throwing my best temper tantrums to get my own way.
It all started about 2 weeks ago. I don’t know why but I don’t like to sleep in my bed anymore. As you may recall I have always slept in my bed with Dog in the kitchen ever since I came to live with Red Toes.
To be honest I just want to sleep on the giant bed with Red Toes, I don’t like it when we are apart.
So one night I devised a plan. If I make as much noise as possible in the kitchen Red Toes will come and get me and I will get to sleep in the giant bed.
So after Red Toes put me to bed, I wait a short while and then I ran.
I ran at the cupboards, I ran at the door, I ran across the floor. I started to tell her “Red Toes come get me.” After about 20 mins I was exhausted so I curled up on my bed and went to sleep.
The next night I decided to try again. After Red Toes left me in bed, I ran at the cupboards, I ran at the door, I ran across the floor. Still she didn’t come. So I started to howl and I ran again at the cupboard and the door and right across the floor. This time she came.
“Yeah, take me to the giant bed” I said. Red Toes cuddled me in her arms and gently rocked me. It made me so tired I fell alseep. I woke up to find I was still in my own bed. “Well that didn’t quite go to plan” I told Red Toes when she came for me in the morning.
The next night I tried again nothing happened. No Red Toes to the rescue. I tried again the following night and the following night to no avail.
“I need to up my game” I said to myself. That day I made sure I got some extra sleep in the day so that I could put my plan into action. When Red Toes put me to bed and stroked my head, I smiled and said “night night see you soon Red Toes.”
I ran at the cupboards, I ran at the door, I ran across the floor, then again and again. Now I stopped and waited for Red Toes to fall asleep then when the clock struck 1:00 am I ran at the cupboards, I ran at the door, I ran across the floor. I howled, I cried. I ran across the floor, then again.
The door open a crack and I ran at Red Toes howling as I went. She scooped me up in her arms and gave me a big cuddle “Oh my Benji whats the problem” she said. I buried my head in her hair.
“Everything is okay now” I said, smiling as I curled up on the giant bed beside Red Toes.
