Not An Early Morning Dog

The boys – Frankie, Typhoon, and Landon – are enthusiastic to get each day started. Cheoah, however, is not an early morning dog.

Why are up so early?

Why are up so early?

Our mornings start a little before 6 as the boys and Hu-Dad awake at roughly the same time. The boys bounds outside to explore the yard to determine what invaders have entered, while the Hu-Dad reads his morning newspapers/

Those boys are crazy.

Those boys are crazy.

The Cheesewhiz, however, quite firmly believes that mornings should start much later in the day–and certainly after the sun has risen. She asks for your forgiveness in her lack of enthusiasm until she is fully awake.

I'm going back to bed. - not an early morning dog

    I’m with you Cheoah! Unfortunately my 2 Huskies, 1 Shepherd and 3 cats don’t agree. Our youngest, a boy, loves his morning snuggles between my husband and I. That doesn’t last long, before he starts pouncing on the bed, waking everyone. With winter approaching, it makes it even harder to get up. Huskies like the brisk air at 6am! So Cheese, let the guys get cold. You stay snuggled up, warm and sleepy…we’re with you on that!

    I’m with Cheoah!! I am not a morning person either Not even coffee helps! If the suns’s not up, neither am I. You go right back to bed and don’t worry your pretty red head about those brothers. Let them get up early! Enjoy the peace and quiet.

    Mom sez: I’m behind Cheoah 100%! I am DEFINITELY not a morning person. I HATE mornings! Ebby has this habit of jumping up on our bed around 6:30 a.m., and “snuggling” with us until about 8:30 a.m., but if we don’t show signs of getting up by then, she starts rooting around, pawing at us, and crawling up between us and sneezing in our faces. THAT gets us up!

    We don’t rise until 9:30 am but then again we don’t go to bed until 12:30 am either. I have always been able to get my dogs to sleep in with me.

    Cheoah a girl after my own heart ! I am not a morning girl either. The Hokie Pack gets up at 5am or so.

    I do not blame you girl. Mornings are rough until the sun comes up.
