For the second morning running I'm awake before 5 a.m.
This time Beano woke me as he wanted to go out.
Because I'm deaf I don't know whether it's the wildlife outside that's disturbed him or if he's asking to go out because he needs to go to the toilet.
I'd rather avoid an accident if possible, so out we go.
It was obviously the local wildlife that disturbed him so we return indoors and Beano is soon snoozing away again.
I don't return to bed as if Beano hears another noise he will want to go out again. Instead we go to the living room where he is less likely to be disturbed.
