A Day in the Life of...


I am so spoiled. 

It is 6:00 a.m. and Mommy's alarm is going off. She hits the snooze button on it twice before she actually gets out of bed. I slowly open my eyes to make sure that she's up and moving, I don't plan on moving from my spot on top of Daddy's feet for at least 15 more minutes. I slowly roll over on to my back and begin to fall asleep as I hear Mommy start the shower. 

Footsteps wake me up. Mommy is dressed and ready for work. Now she's walking down the hallway with her bowl of cereal. I think I will get out of bed now and stare sadly at her until she takes me outside. 

Getting out of Mommy and Daddy's bed was tougher than I thought! I didn't make it to the living room where Mommy is eating and watching the news, I got tired halfway there and had to lay down on the hallway rug. 

Mommy is done eating breakfast and as she puts her bowl in the kitchen sink I hear her ask, "Lucy, do you have to go potty?" That's all I need and I'm up and waiting at the door.

With my blue leash firmly attached to my collar, Mommy takes me outside. I have to wait a few seconds on the top step to adjust to the light outside. Mommy has to wait with me. Then we head over to the lawyers lawn where I usually go to do my business in the morning. Mommy has to wait while I sniff and sniff and sniff and finally figure out where is the best place to "think."

After that I get to go back inside where its warm and cozy. Mommy is getting her stuff ready for work and sometimes I bring my yellow tennis ball to her and she will throw it for me a few times. But, today, I'm feeling rather tired so I hop up on to the couch and watch Mommy. When she has everything ready that she needs, Mommy then picks me up and puts me in to bed with Daddy. 

I'm already asleep when I hear the front door close. 

I'm sleeping in Mommy's spot on the bed. Daddy is next to me. 

Mommy comes homes from lunch and I guess I should probably get up. Sometimes she takes me out to go potty again, but I don't really have to go. I just want to sit next to her on the couch while she eats.

Once Daddy gets up, we get to go for a ride in the car...oh boy! I wonder where we'll go....

To be continued.
