I clocked out exactly at 12:30 AM and dragged my butt off to bed, followed by my 4 legged friend. Once my head hit the pillow, I couldn't sleep. Of course not. So I picked up my bedside book, Band of Brothers, and tried to read.
About 5 minutes into a good chapter, Leo saw his reflection in the mirror and took to warning the entire neighborhood that, yes, barbarians were indeed at the gate.
What a pain in the ass.
I had two choices: cover the mirror, or turn out the lights. I chose the latter, but even in the dark, the beast woofed gently for about 10 minutes. He just knew in his heart that another dog was still in the room.
At least the night ended with a good laugh, though I don't think Leo found it humorous at all.
