My dog did just that. When I slept, she slept. She would curl up next to me and just be. I could sleep for hours during the day and she wouldn't bring me a ball to throw or a toy to play with, she would just lay with me. Pets know when you're sick. I'm convinced they know. While they can't speak, actions speak louder than words. Sometimes she would just stare at me with her big bug eyes which kind of said to me "It's ok, talk to me. I can't speak back, but I can listen" and so I did. She is a fantastic listener.
Nowadays, I know she knows I'm getting better because she's bringing me toys that squeak and licks my face. Even though I sometimes don't think my progress is going at a good rate, she does. And really, who am I to disagree with that face? :)
