My beautiful Sophie
This was so strange. I went upstairs and walked into my bedroom, I heard Sophie my dog come upstairs and I called to her, saying. ‘I’m in here, Soph.’ Silence, I looked out of the door, no Sophie, I looked in the other bedrooms, and in the bathroom. No Sophie. I realised that she was still downstairs. I know that I did not imagine this happening. Sophie was in the lounge. Now, if she had come upstairs and decided to go back down. I would have heard her wouldn’t I? I didn't.
Perhaps, because I thought that she might follow me upstairs I imagined hearing her! I know I didn't though.
