We are those people…suckers for the adorableness that is our Weimador (half black lab, half weimaraner), Macy. She is so cuddly and loves to sleep with us…you know where this is going, right? Well, her cuteness of sleeping in a little tiny ball has broadened to crawling under the blanket, sleeping with all four paws stretched out and snoring. No joke, the other night I had my headphones on enjoying a recent episode of PanAm on my iPad when I could hear her snoring over the TV show. That was the last straw, we’ve got to do something to reclaim our king size bed and regular sleeping habits.
Enter, “Operation keep Macy off the furniture”, here is about how the night went:
10:30PM — I turned on the electric blanket on Macy’s bed so that she would have a nice, warm place to sleep
11:00PM — I turned off the electric blanket because I was worried that I’d forget in the morning and leave it on all day, i.e. fire hazard. Oh the life of a Firefighter.
11:30PM — I moved Macy’s bed right next to my side of the bed so that she wouldn’t feel lonely and neglected
11:45PM — Shoo Macy to get off our bed and get onto her own bed
1:00AM –Shoo Macy to get off the sofa in our bedroom and go onto her own bed
2:00AM –Shoo Macy to get off our bed and get onto her own bed
4:00AM — Shoo Macy to get off our bed and get onto her own bed
7:00 AM — Wake up and feed Macy
7:10AM — Shoo a wide-eyed and bushy-tailed Macy to get off our bed and onto her own bed
8:00AM — Take this picture of Macy and give her a little lovin’ for staying on her own bed while I got ready for work. I’m pretty sure she’s giving me the stink eye in this picture though. Not her most photogenic moment.
Tonight the operation continues, but I’m assuming that it’ll start earlier since I didn’t get a restful nights sleep. Fingers crossed that I have the stamina and follow through to see this until the end. Because after all…
