Morning Wake-up Ninja move #19
I love Suki more than anything, but she has one horrible characteristic…she’s become a morning dog since losing the weight. Her wake-up calls can range anywhere from 4:30 am to 7:30 am. Anything earlier than 7something is WAY TOO early!! No, she doesn’t need to go potty. I would not have any issue being woken at the crack of dawn if she needed to potty. Nope…she wants a belly rub…so she can fall back asleep!
The funny thing is, she tries to be all subtle, stealthy ninja about waking me. There’s no barking or jumping on me for a jarring wake-up. Although, waking from a good sleep to see a dog nose an inch away or feel a wet nose in your ear can cause a little freak out. And she seems to delight in coming up with different methods each day. Today’s ninja move involved a furry little paw repeatedly patting my pillow right next to my head. Once I started to stir, the furry paw started patting my arm. After I finally opened my eyes, owner of said furry paw rolled over, belly in the air! Really? What does she have against sleep?!
Do your fur babies have any funny or unique ways of waking you? I’ve love to hear them.
