Ya’ gotta hand it to my Golden, Maggie. She knows how to get her way. I know she wants to be the center of my life, but enough is enough! For whatever reason, she decided that I needed to be out of bed at 5:30 this morning. She started by pawing at my face. OK, so I’m a little behind on clipping her nails, but that hurt!
I rolled over so she couldn’t reach my face again, and a few minutes later, I hear her ripping up a piece of paper. And not just any piece of paper. It was my son’s girlfriend’s graduation announcement. Oops! I wrestled that away from her and went back to bed.
Next, I heard her ripping up something that sounded like aluminum foil. I opened one eye to see her opening a pack of sugar-free gum. I had to get that from her quickly because it has xylitol in it, which is poisonous to dogs. Went back to bed again.
Then, she got another pack of gum – not sure where she was finding these because I keep them in the tall cupboard in the kitchen. Maybe one of the kids got them down. Got that pack away from her and went back to bed.
Next, she delivered the coup de grace. She knocked a full can of Diet Coke off of my nightstand onto the carpet, splashing me in the face on the way down.
Between her nonsense and Cooper barking incessantly at a squirrel out the window, I’m up already!
How did your morning go?
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
