The exciting conclusion of the blind guy who let his guide dog sleep in his bed one night!

November 4, 2009

I was taught that once you let your dog sleep in your bed, there is no going back. So last night, I when I laid down in my bed, I was anxious to see what would happen. Would Nash immediately hop into my bed, and be like move over dude you’re on my side? Or would Nash go to his bed as if the previous night had never happened? I guess somewhere in between was ok. I got into bed, put Seinfeld on, and all of the sudden, I thought we were having an earthquake in NYC. Hey, I lived in L.A., so I am use to tremors, and not the awful movie. I put my hand down next to my bed, and Nash was cuddled up against my bed frame. He was rocking back and forth. Whem, no earthquake in the city. One thing I was happy to leave behind in L.A. It was pretty cute, as it was like Nash was saying, calm on, invite me up to your bed. Unfortunately, I could not appease Nash, as I do not want him to get into the habit of sleeping in my bed with me. After a few minutes, Nash retreated a few feet over to his bed, and settled in, and he too fell asleep to Seinfeld.

Nash is getting fed up with me, as I keep doing radio interviews, and he only does tv! He’s big time. I was on BlogTalk Radio last night promoting Laugh For Sight 4, and today, I met with Alice Stockton-Rossini of 1010 WINS radio to record an interview for the benefit that they will be airing to promote the benefit. She is a sweetheart, and will be hosting the benefit. Amazingly, it has been a long time since I have been heckled on stage, as I think people are a little afraid to heckle a blind comic, especially one with a vicious looking attack dog like Nash. Kidding of course for those of you who haven’t seen any pictures of Nash, he is so cute and friendly, he makes Snoopy look like more of an attack dog than him. Well, as we were recording the interview, some drunk bum walked up behind us, and pretty much began heckling us. Good thing I don’t typically perform in front of drunk bums. Will be interesting to see how much of the interview with the bum in the background makes it on air.

Nash and I met my friend Jewel later today. Seems like we were in and out of Starbucks all day. For someone who doesn’t like Starbucks, I sure do seem to spend a lot of time there. We then went for a walk, and it ends up there is a vet around the corner, so I went in and got Nash weighed. He has put a little weight on, so someone will be joining me on a diet. It was surprising as I am really careful not to let Nash be fed by anyone but me, so I am not sure how he put the weight on as he has been getting a regular amount of exercise. So we both will be getting more exercise, and hopefully Nash will be back to his slender self soon. Wish us luck.

And I thought Nash was only a blanket hog

November 4, 2009

Last night Nash and I went out to watch the Yankees clinch the first World Series of his life time. Unfortunately, the stupid Phillies had other plans. While we did enjoy a nice night out at Matt’s Grill, I was disappointed. I think Nash realized that I was disappointed, as when we got home, it was late, and I got into bed, and Nash wanted to still play. Normally when I get into bed, Nash lies down in his bed, and we both fall asleep to old Seinfeld episodes that I still tivo to this day. Yes, I still find it quite funny, and falling asleep to the imaginary sitcom world is quite pleasant. Nash was running up and down next to my bed, so I decided why not, and yelled break, and sure enough, Nash hopped into my bed. He cuddled up next to me, and hogged more than half the bed. I didn’t mind, as it was quite comforting. Nash did fiddle around for a few minutes until he got comfortable, but then he fell fast asleep, lying right up against me. I of course woke up in the middle of the night, and Nash was still up against me snoozing away. This morning, I kept hitting the snooze button, and Nash was still asleep next to me, then I think he decided enough with this snooze, as he got up, and with the little room there was, he began running around me in the bed. Then he stood over me, and started licking me saying yo idiot, get up, I’m hungary. It was quite the experience, and I guess saying that I slept with a dog last night takes on a whole new meaning. I went to a bar and woke up next to a dog really takes on a new meaning. I don’t think I would want Nash in my bed every night, and they say once you let him in, he will always want to come in, so it will be interesting to see what happens tonight when we lay down to go to sleep.
