I was talking to Andrew this mornign about stuff as I was getting ready, so I only half-noticed that as I was getting my jacket on and finding my keys and picking up Gary's leash, he still hadn't appeared. He is usually very excited about walks, to the point of being excited any time I go near the hallway where my bag and jacket are.

I remembered having seen him upstairs so I called him a couple times. Nothing. Not even the thundery sound he makes when he jumps off our bed (which sometimes is all we get, if he's reluctant to come downstairs). I went up and looked for him; he...wasn't there? I looked in the spare room, which he likes because it gets the most sun, but he wasn't there either. And there wasn't even any sun today.

Then Andrew found him, by opening the basement door. I'd started some laundry fifteen or so minutes earlier, and he'd been downstairs "helping" me by darting around, interested as ever in the arcane human things I was doing. Usually he gets bored before I finish, and my mind had been on all the other things I had to do before I left for work in not very long at all, so I hated noticed I was closing the door before he'd gotten back upstairs.

"He didn't even bark1" Andrew said. We definitely would've heard him if he'd made a noise. "He was just standing right at the top of the stairs when I opened the door." Can't have been very comfortable for him, but bless him not even complaining. We don't deserve dogs.

He was happy to be let out but didn't hold a grudge. He got extra fusses and telling that he was a good boy, he wagged his tail lots and seemeed happy with the belly rubs. He was happier that I was still holding his leash, though. We had a nice walk.
