Some Ruff Late Night Shenanigans

We made it through another week, you guys!  Go ahead, pat yourself on the back because we all deserve it!  I know that I definitely do because I've had about as many hours of sleep this whole week as you can count on one....paw.  That's right, and it's been with that same paw that this little one has scratched me over and over and over again to try and wake me up each night.  Mission accomplished she says.
Now, now, don't let that innocent face fool you like it's fooled me each night.  It's actually not an innocent face, more like an exhausted one.  Jumping up and down off the bed each night around 2 o'clock can take a toll on one, you know.  Just like chasing a cat in the middle of the night.  Or even fooling someone into thinking you need to pee, when in reality you end up playing in the snow for a half hour while ignoring your mother who is calling out to you, until she finally has to go out in the backyard with nothing but a pajama top and some snow boots to bring you back in the house.  And I also bet it's pretty difficult timing your barking to happen at around 4:30 each morning. I'd say that takes skill.  Or how about throwing up all over the comforters and making your parents start scrubbing what resembled a red plastic frisbee mixed in with a half of a sock and some other goop that they never want to think about again.  "Ruff", i tell you, "ruff".
Either some sick person messed with Charley's biological clock or she just happens to be really, really excited for Christmas. I think I'm going to have to start using some good ole tactics like my parents would use on me around this time of the year, like tell her that Santa's watching her every move.  Maybe I'll scare her and tell her that if she doesn't behave she won't get the number one item on her list this year; bones. Actually that would probably scare me more than her.
How I even showed up to work each morning this week is beyond me.  And, to be honest, I have no idea how I'm even putting these words together right now to form coherent sentences. That was actually a forewarning to you all. But then again, that's probably really no different from any other day of the week when you come here.

So, with that said, before I start rambling on even more and chasing you all away, like Charley's probably going to do again tonight, I'm going to leave it at that.  I think it's even a miracle that I made it this far. 

Speaking of miracles, if you haven't watched this video from the West Jet Airlines, you should seriously check it out. I don't know if it's because of the no sleep thing, but every time I've watched it this week it's given me goosebumps.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

  5. At least you don't have to wake up in the middle of the night, take her down the hall, wait for the elevator, then go outside, just to watch her play in the snow... at 3 in the morning. Like Misty has done. A couple times.

    Oh how I wish I had a backyard...

  6. Oh the things we do for our pets. I especially love the playing in the snow in the middle of the night. I will never understand why playing in the snow in the dark is better than playing in the snow during the day.
