This is the story of a PUG and a BIRD CAGE.
Every night the human would put the birds to bed by covering the cage with a special blanket. Noodles wondered why and often asked (barked) what the human was doing. She never really got an answer other than "Putting the birds to bed."
One night Noodles was being very insistent about getting an answer to why the birdcage was covered at night. Finally, in frustration, her human took the cover and put it over her. Immediately Noodles stopped asking. She just stood there in the quiet and the dark - not moving a muscle, not making a sound.

The human then walked away and Noodles heard her say, "Goodnight Noodles. Enjoy." Then Noodles heard the light click off (she couldn't really tell if the light went out because she was already in the dark" and the door to the bedroom shut.
Noodles just stood there, not moving a muscle. . . not making a sound. "Hmmmm," she thought. "This is rather relaxing. I can certainly understand why the birds like it." She was also getting kinda sleepy so she closed her eyes - all the while not moving a muscle. . . not making a sound.
An eternity later, she heard the bedroom door open, her human's footsteps advancing, and the light switch click. "Woosh," the blanket went as it was quickly removed from over her. Her human was laughing uncontrollably by now and when Noodles looked up, she saw tears in her human's eyes. Tears of mirth.
"Oh Noodles," her human said. "You really are the funniest pug."
