Destructomatic Times Two

Riley is visiting for a few days while his humans are out of town.
After taking Wylie and Riley out for their evening walk (in the rain), I was too tired to go upstairs and ended up taking a nap on the couch. When I woke up an hour or so later, I discovered that the two dogs had chewed a hole through the back of the couch. Not only the back of the couch though, they’d gone all the way through the drywall and I could see the aluminum siding and feel cold air blowing through. So now, in addition to still being completely exhausted, I was utterly disgusted as well. It was enough of a shock that my only possible reaction was to fall asleep again.
When I woke up the second time, I discovered that the damage had been a dream. In fact, the destroyed couch was a completely different style than the one I’d been napping on and I never would have painted the walls that shade of green. Wylie had been napping next to me the whole time and Riley was curled up on the other side of the room.

  1. Come to that, can you be sure that the first dream was not the reality, and that you are not now dreaming about having blogged about the dreamscape that you escaped into, where the wall was not destroyed?

  2. This is Riley’s human. When Blair emailed me this story, I didn’t catch the part about it being a dream and seriously freaked out, thinking Riley chewed a hole through Blair’s drywall. I thought, “Mike just lost his job. How will we ever pay for those damages?”
    When I re-read the email, I relaxed. Whew, you scared me there, Blair!
