The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

A "Morning Dog"

My pomeranian, Snickerdoodle, (aka "snoodle")is the ultimate morning person, except that she's not a person. Of course, like most small dogs, she thinks that she is a person. At night, she sleeps in her crate in the guest room. Much like me, she goes to the bathroom and then happily snuggles up in her warm blanket at bedtime. Where we start to differ is that while I am cranky and never want to get out of bed in the morning... Snickerdoodle can't wait. I don't know if she is more excited about the fact that she's about to go to the bathroom again, or if she's excited about the food. I would like to believe that she's most excited to see me in the morning. Anyway, whatever it is that gets her so riled up in the mornings must be pretty exciting for her.

When I open the door to her crate, she leaps out of it and circles my legs, jumps up slightly to say hello and then bounds down the stairs as fast as her little legs will fly. Then, she makes a lap around the living room, passes back by me as if to say "Hi again Mom", and then circles around the dining room. Once I get to the back door, she appears, hunched down, ears back, ready to rocket outside the door and into the back yard. She exhibits more energy in the first ten minutes she's awake than I do in an entire day! I wish that I could be a morning person, like snickerdoodle, and wake up excited and ready to face each new day.
