Mission.... To recover mysterious human artefact. I chose to accept it at great peril to myself. There wouldn't be a doggy treat in sight for hours if I got caught on this one!
So, 7am. Human sleeping. Detected by snore check. Check.
7.10 am. Begin assault on wooden mountain. One step at a time. One creak and it's all over.
7.12am. Belly crawl along landing to spy out the lie of the wasteland that is known in human terms as the Bedroom Floor.
7.15am. All clear. Advance slowly. Target in sight. Lying at foot of bed. Path clear of human interference.
7.17am. Secure artefact by grasping firmly between teeth. Retreat speedily but silently.
7.20. Was sure the bumping on the steps of the stairs of this dratted boot would wake the human! Wish was taller!
7.30. Back at base. The treasure is mine. But just the same practice looking innocent.
