Like most of you, we get up fairly early during the work week. Hubby’s alarm goes off at 5:30 and mine goes off at 6:00. Our dogs are used to getting up around 6:00 for a potty break, having a couple of treats and then heading back to bed until breakfast is served, which in our house is at 7:00.
On the weekends, Hubby and I like to sleep in. Sampson and Delilah don’t differentiate between Saturdays and Sundays, so Hubby and I have devised a system. I get up with the dogs Saturday morning while he sleeps in and he returns the courtesy on Sunday for me.
Except this weekend Hubby went away. He left yesterday morning around 3:00 am. So at 6:00 am yesterday I got up and let the dogs outside to potty, stoked the fireplace and went back to bed.
Until 7:00 at which time I was woken up with some very deep sighs…from Delilah.
Of course I got up and fed them.
Sometimes I really wish I wore a helmet cam.
You know a little camera on the top of my head so I could record the antics of these two.
They. Are. Funny.
Hysterically funny at times.
So this morning when they woke me up at 6:00, I got up and let them out, stoked the fire, fixed their food, fed them some cookies and went back to bed.
I brought the camera with me so I could record Delilah’s sighing.
Did she accommodate me by sighing?
No she did not.
I spent the next half hour listening to her chew on a bone, while I rubbed Sampson’s ears.
Do your pets let you sleep in on the weekends? How do you help them adjust to the weekend vs week day schedule?
