Galileo and the pea

Galileo in his nest on the pool steps

On a pile of blankets, peeping over his tail

Our little spaniel Galileo is no princess.

He certainly wouldn’t feel a pea under all that bedding, piled up there while the floor’s being washed.

He doesn’t even feel the wads of burrs and sweethearts stuck in his ears.

But he does, unfortunately, feel any attempt to get them out.
