Waking up the Family
In October, after loosing Rex, I decided we should let Shane, our Border Collie, up on the bed with us. Not my brightest move. Well that was 5 months ago; In January we got the Collie Pups and for a while, Shane would jump on the bed during play time with his "brothers" and torment them from above. Now... The puppies are big enough to jump up on the bed. I find this a very nice way to rouse everyone in the morning... Paul is under there somewhere.. This morning.. He paid me back, while I dozed off before he left for work. All you can do is scream and cover your head. That's how he said good bye to his poor old wife this morning.This also works for Sabby when she just doesn't want to get up.. Hondo is a bit ahead of Barney, the blue collared collie, and was able to reach her on her "top bunk". Barney, tired of trying to climb up there and started chewing on other things... He's under the bed.
I think it's beautiful the way Sabby usually wakes up with a smile on her face. Even when my means of waking her up aren't all that gentle.
