Nash is free at last, free at last

Last night was the first night that I let Nash sleep without being on the tie down. I didn’t wait so long because I was afraid he would go all cujo on me in his sleep or anything, it was more of a selfish reason. I was worried that he would start licking me in the middle of the night, and want to play. Yes, he is that friendly. If a burglar ever entered my apartment, Nash would lick him to death before biting him. With me needing my beauty sleep, and sleeping later than most people, hey I do go to sleep later than most people, so I got to make it up somewhere. I don’t know why I can’t ever fall asleep, it’s not like I think the world is going to end the next day, or that I am going to die in my sleep, i just cannot fall asleep. As soon as I lay down, my mind begins racing through the Matrix. Half the time I have to get up because I think of something for a bit, or remember something I have to do the next day, and if I don’t write it down, I will forget about it. I don’t even smoke pot, so what’s with the short term memory loss? Well, it was a successful night of Nash not walking around the apartment in the middle of the night, and at least on the firs tnight, he did not start licking me in the middle of the night. I also didn’t know if Nash would be like me, and have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I figured as long as he is on the tie down and in his bed, he would hold, but if he has free range of the entire apartment, what’s to stop him from walking across the apartment, taking a whiz by the door, and going back to bed. Well, no funky smells this morning, and hopefully the experiment last night will continue to be a good one. This was the one thing that I probably held on to too long, so for now, at night, Nash will finally be freee at last, free at last.

I groom Nash twice daybecause he seems to be going for the Guiness Book of World Records with all of his shedding. The grooming is me running his comb and brush through him a few times, and you would be amazed at the amounts of hair that this produces. I am actually surprised that I do not have a completely bald dog by now. Well, today, Nash was like a little kid during the grooming, as I left one of his toy balls out, and as I was grooming him, he got his toy ball, and wanted to play. He had it in his mouth the whole time I was grooming him, and he made me think of when I was a little kid at the barber’s, as I think my Mom used to give me a toy to play with so the barber could actually cut my hair, and I would sit still. Nash didn’t exactly sit still, but he was pretty good, and he must have been enjoying it because he kept hitting me with a wagging tail!
