I have a special treat for you today. We’re going to visit the lair of a mysterious animal known as the Cave Dog. Not too close… we don’t want to spook the magnificent creature. However, if we move slowly, we may be able to catch a glimpse of this cozy canine.
The Cave Dog’s origins are a mystery. Rumor has it that the Cave Dog will hide under anything. At night, the Cave Dog usually falls asleep in its chosen den… after a few hours, one can hear the Cave Dog shuffling out of the cave. This nightly migration from cave to dog bed is a phenomenon that pupologists cannot explain. Only the Cave Dog knows the reasons behind this puzzling pattern.
If you know where to look, you may be able to find a Cave Dog under a sofa, table, or bed. Although the Cave Dog gravitates to these locations, the beast is not stealthy. The observant naturalist can usually spot an errant foot or tail, which will give away the creature’s location. On occasion, the Cave Dog will even leave its head exposed.
Alas, the Cave Dog’s habitat is under attack. When a new bed replaced the old, the Cave Dog could no longer fit underneath it. Although the Cave Dog has managed to squeeze underneath the new landmark in a fit of thunderstorm-induced panic, the habitat is no longer ideal. (Humans are so inconsiderate.) Fortunately, our team of Cave Dog conservationists has constructed a new habitat for the reclusive pooch. By draping an afghan over a conveniently located bench at the foot of the bed, we have created a new den of privacy. The Cave Dog has adjusted well to the new habitat and appears to be quite content.
Now, you’re in for a real treat… we’ve managed to get a photo inside the Cave Dog’s lair!
Believe it or not, the Cave Dog was fairly hospitable and gave us a slurp before we departed. Nature never fails to surprise.
