The best way to wake up
When my eyes pop open in the morning the first thing I see is my dog. As soon as he realizes I'm awake he comes right over and starts washing my face! Nose licks, eyelid licks, cheek licks ... he doesn't discriminate.
I grab him and try to get him to snuggle with me for another minute or two, but he won't have it.
He'll stay still for a quick belly rub, but it's clear he wants out.
I pull my clothes on (sometimes over my jammies) and we're off.
Granted I don't do much sleeping in (even on the weekends), but I can't imagine a sweeter way to wake up.
