Micah: Dogs are weird.
Buddy: Hey, who are you calling weird?
Micah: You and Marcus.
Buddy: You'd better have a good reason for that!
Micah: I do. Merci is old and when animals get old, their bladder sometimes goes wonky.
Buddy: My bladder is fine. Usually.
Micah: But yesterday morning while you slept under your quilt on the big bed, Jan yelled for Merci to get up and go outside with Marcus. Merci did. However, as Jan soon discovered, Jan evidently startled her awake and Merci had an accident in her bed.
Buddy: That's Jan's fault for yelling at her.
Micah: But if she doesn't yell, Merci doesn't hear her. Jan understood Merci didn't do it deliberately so she quietly took the bed outside to wash the urine out of it. It was so cold, she brought the bed back inside to dry and put it in front of the heater. It wasn't long before she turned around to see this.
Buddy: Yes, Marcus assumed the bed was in front of the heater so he could stay warm.
Micah: But the bed was still damp.
Micah: So you got jealous and went to sit beside Jan and stare at her so she would think you needed to go out. Then when she opened the back door and Marcus ran outside, she turned around and there you were in the bed Marcus had been sleeping in.
Buddy: Yes, I'm crafty that way.
Micah: But the bed was damp! A cat would never curl up in a damp bed.
Buddy: Not even in front of the heat?
Micah: No, we have more sense.
Buddy: You were huddled near a pilot light on the stove. I lay warm and toasty in front of the heater. I might not have more sense but I sure had more heat!
