We had a rescue greyhound that would lie stretched out on the rug in front of the coal fire, couldn't be moved but wouldn't sleep inside overnight, always went outside to her shed and her straw bed at bedtime.
Greyhound you say...If it slept all day it probably ran to somewhere like Wales overnight.

billy cotton bandshow, black and white minstrels, the navy lark, round the horn ; the master of the double-entendre, humphrey lyttleton on sorry havent a clue. The wizard, rover, hotspur and adventure, printed in manchester, the eagle ran a national table-tennis tournament , cycle speedway had a big following, coppers on silent velocettes, the mersey with great sheets of foam blowing over northenden, every one had coal fires and coal-holes and nutty-slack was cheaper than steam coal. Used to fly model planes on the big field that became wythenshawe civic centre. Archie Littlemoore anyone ? houndstooth check jeans, the catholic parades in town, gangs of teddy boys and brylcreem machines in public baths.
Familiar with all of those mate
