This morning I got up early and took Murdoch for a walk across the fields. When I got back, I went back to bed and I fell asleep for a little while. I woke up and although still a little drowsy, I could hear Murdoch in the kitchen drinking out of his water bowl. Then there was the clickety click of his claws across the floor and I saw him come into my bedroom. When Murdoch has drunk some water, he really likes to lick my feet. I always joke that he's loading up his licky gun with ammunition. So I stuck one foot out from underneath the duvet and let him.
It may seem silly, but it's simple little moments like that, where I know exactly what Murdoch needs and can give it to him that make me feel really happy. Seeing his tail wag happily at the smallest thing that I can do for him is such an amazing pay off.
Do you guys have little things like this that make you smile?
