Merlin and I are so close, I cannot move unless he is literally by my side. When I sit and watch TV he is either sitting beside my chair, or wants me to throw his rope toy so he can fetch it, or if I am working in my study, he lays beside my chair.
Sundays are Merlin's and my time together, walking around my property, throwing sticks and playing. When he gets tired we go inside where he lays beside my chair and doesn't move until bedtime.
When I come home from work he is there waiting for me to take him out for a walk, throw sticks for him or he plays rough house with Hobo. Sometimes Hobo pushes his luck with Merlin, resulting in Merlin putting Hobo firmly in his place. If I make a fuss of Hobo, Merlin gets very jealous and chases Hobo off as if to say “He's MY daddy NOT yours, now back off!!”
Merlin simply wants to play and play, until sleep overtakes him, then when I get up from my chair to go to bed he is instantly awake and runs into my bedroom and jumps on my bed, then he jumps down onto his own duvet beside my bed and falls fast asleep. When I wake up in the morning he jumps up for his early morning cuddle, he looks at me and I know he's thinking, “I love you daddy, so much.” I look at him and simply say, “I love you too Merlin, I always will my boy.”
Our bond is so strong, I love him beyond words and I am so proud of him. I could never wish for a better little boy.
