Ranger has really taken to my husband. He follows my husband around, watching his every move, and when my husband is not moving sometimes he will just sit and stare at him. When my husband asks why he is doing that I tell him “he wants to be you.”
Usually when my husband is away Ranger turns his attention to me and what I am doing. Often it’s when I am sitting at my computer desk trying to type that Ranger will come put his paws on my leg. Then, before I know it, he wiggles his way up on my lap and I’ll have 20 pounds of beagle between me and the computer.
Today I decided to let him help me write.
A Nap On Your Lap
By Ranger and Ruth
Our walk is done, now take off your cap.
A bite to eat, then it’s time for a nap.
A nap I say – sit down, sit down
It’s time for a nap –
a nap on your lap.
What’s wrong with you?
Did you hear what I said?
I’m a tired pup – can’t hold up my head
If you won’t listen, if you won’t sit
I’ll just have to nap on your bed
