Our new apartment faces a courtyard, which makes it very quiet at night. On the other side of the courtyard, we can see into the windows of other apartments, which creates a Rear Window situation. There is one window I can see into from the kitchen. They have a big, fluffy white sofa with an equally fluffy dog that likes to rest on it and sometimes pounce on the pillows. Yesterday he was taking a nap there, and he looked a bit like a shaggy carpet.
