A yawn. A stretch. A flick of the ear. Blink. A scratch of itchy skin. Rolling over to sun the other side for a while. Blink. Blink. Chin on paws now. Twitch the nose. Was that a sound? Ears perk up. Noise passes on its way. A yawn. Paws on chin. Blink. Another sound. The sound! Bounding up! A leap! Whining! Home! Tongue lolls! Master! Master! Home! At last! A bark!
