Thumping Mystery

A housemate broke his leg on vacation which is now in a cast.  This has led to him receiving the moniker of “thumper” based on the noise created as he tries to remain ambulatory.  But there’s was a bit of a mystery; sometimes instead of regular thumping, there was a few thumps followed by a long pause followed by a thump late at night.  The mystery was resolved today when I went to bed late and witnessed the housemate trying to convince Max to move out of the hallway before he gave up, wound up, and jumped over him.

Good dog.
