I was home this morning, so i overslept. Being the heat leech it is, the dog slept by my legs the whole morning.
    When i got out of bed, after taking a leak, washing my face, wearing some clothes and drinking some water, i sat in front of my laptop, just beside the bed. The dog basically crawled from my blankets to my leg, without having given sign of waking up.
     After almost an hour, i went to the kitchen to set up lunch. The dog slowly walked along, stopping every few steps to stretch its back. As i was standing by the stove, it attemptend climbing on my leg, and upon failure resorted to stretching some more. Then it sat on a chair, and took a short nap as my effortlessly food got through the transition between frozen and tasty.
    As i started eating, the dog started whimpering. I wasn't planning to give it any food, not even crumbs. It knew that perfectly. As i pulled its chair (it doesn't have one it calls its own, but it was sitting on this particular one) beside mine, it went silent and curled up.
    As i was washing the dishes, the dog prowled around the table, hunting for unruly crumbs that might have escaped my broom. Every few turns, it went out of the balcony, walked its perimeter, came back in.
    It was at that moment that i wondered if dogs see time as we generally do, as a line, or if they would represent it geometrically in some other way, like a torus or a trefoil knot.
