A couple nights ago Rupert woke up as he often does, in the middle of the night.
Usually he gets up to pee, get a drink or a bite to eat. When we hear that he's up, we'll get up with him, to make sure he doesn't eat the cat food or that he pees on his wee wee pad.
There are times when he gets up unnoticed and wreaks havoc - eating the cat food, or gnawing on a pillow, or in this case, finding a red pen and chewing it up until it was utterly destroyed.
Well, you can imagine what happened - we woke up to Rupert sound asleep in bed with red all over his front paws and belly. Mark had a start and thought we had to take him to the animal hospital.
Thank goodness it wasn't blood, just the result of a late night rampage. The dear pup was the laughing stock at the dog run.
