My Dog is Not On Spring Break Day 28

My dog is not on Spring Break.  I learned that this morning.  

I wanted to sleep in.  We had friends over last night, and it was the first day of spring break.  

I love my dog; I do.  She is brilliant and loving towards all people, but I did not love her this morning. 

We weren’t up too late.  Maybe 11 PM after we cleaned up, and I walked her one last time.  I always think if I walk her late, she will sleep in.  I usually walk her at 8:30, and she is up by 6:30 AM.  I was hoping some of that two and a half hours would transfer to the morning, and we could sleep in.  

It didn’t. 

I think she has OCD. I don’t mean to make light of this condition, but she likes things her way.  She wants to walk before she eats.  She will leave her food if I give it before the walk.  She likes to sleep in her bed for half the night and sneak into ours.  She likes to get up early.

Nudge; it’s 6:15. Time to get up!  Time to take me out so I can eat.  

Doesn’t she know spring break started?  Please get back in your bed and leave us alone.  I just walked you 6 hours ago.  

I don’t care.  The clock says 6—time for you to take me out. 

I am losing this battle.  How about a compromise?  I will take you out at 7.  Just lay in your bed until seven, and we will go out then. 

Deal.

I hope you will agree to 8 by the end of the week.  

Unlikely.

  1. Oh yes, THIS! My puppy is used to being up every day with my fiance around 6. Sometimes we can push it to 6:45 on the weekends, but he is an early riser so no big deal. But he’s gone this week and I’m home. On spring break. And she wanted me up at 6:30! Yaawwwnnn. How am I supposed to sleep in?
