Daisey Mae has a routine in the morning. She likes to immediately go out to the backyard - pee and then watch me in the kitchen, make my coffee and then fill her food dish with her morning allotment of chow - along with some fresh water.
She comes in - gobbles her food and then back to the bedroom with me where we snuggle, kiss and roll around on my bed. She moans in doggy delight as I tell her how much I love her.
Then she sits at the end of the bed, watches me stare at the wall. At some point, she gets down and wants to go back outside to "bark." Sometimes the 2 dogs next door are out first - or Daisey is out first and "barks" to get their attention. She walks around the yard, usually with a green (Kong) bone in her mouth. She growls at the fence - always with a waggly tail. It's all part of the "game."
Then she comes back in - feeling awesome. You can just tell. Now she is back on the foot of the bed, where she awaits, her Daddy. She listens intently for the garage door to open - When she hears it, of course I say,
She jumps off the bed and barks at the Husband.
It's all a game.
