I entered the house and heard a 'thump' upstairs as Ray jumped off the bed and hit the floor. He ambled down the stairs and approached me tentatively. "Hi, Ray," I said, "Did you miss me?" Ray stopped when his nose touched my thigh. He snuffled my leg down to my knee while I pet him. I walked over and sat on the couch. Ray followed, touched his nose to my shoulder and snuffled down my arm. As I rubbed his ears, Ray put his nose up to my mouth almost touching it. I sat still. Ray stood sniffing my breath (it couldn't have been good) for what seemed like a long time. Then, apparently satisfied that I hadn't been drinking, Ray jumped up on the couch next to me, curled into a ball and went to sleep.
