Since allowing our precious puppy to sleep with us, we have encountered a plethora of interesting late night/early morning goings on that can only equal that of a crack house during peak operation. Here’s a little rundown of last night’s exploits:
10:30pm – Magilicious takes up position at the end of the bed and begins digging. She’s a digger. Don’t ask me what she’s digging, I don’t’ know.
10:31 – I promptly replace Mags on her cushy brand new orthopedic bed with chew bones and toys and say the command ‘stay’. Which she does. I then secure myself in under the covers and set the tv up. I’m all comfy and cozy..
10:31:03 – I’m suddenly pounced on by a seven pound mound of hair that thinks my face has been dipped in bacon. After I extract her from my face I again, replace her back on her cushy brand new orthopedic puppy bed with the command ‘STAY’. She looks at me like this:
10:34 – Magalicious cautiously creeps onto the end of the bed as if she’s sneaking up behind a masked villain stealing her doggy treats and she’s about to take him down. She sees me eying her. Her ears go down and she gives me that “What? But I’m cute, right?” I get up and move her AGAIN to her cushy brand new orthopedic puppy bed with her chew toy. “ANNNNNDDDDD STAY” She gives me the stink eye. I return to my comfy position.
10:45 – I feel a paw, then another paw, then another one caaarreefully walk on my ankles, then I feel a sudden ‘thump’. I raise my head to see her walking in circles around my ankles in an attempt to get comfortable and plop herself right on beside my leg.
10:46- the door opens and Hubby walks in. OH NO! The dog is suddenly on high alert. She’s standing at attention as if the president just walked into the room, her tail is wagging and in an excited flurry, she jumps down to her cushy brand new orthopedic puppy bed and retrieves her toy and brings it to him like it’s a gift for his majesty for gracing us with his presence. Give me a fucking break. Her ears are down, her tail is wagging and she’s just so damned excited she just may pee on her bed. Which she does. Great.
11:00 – Everybody is settled…ON OUR BED for the night. Magalicious eyes me and is smiling smugly…I just know it.
1:00am – A flurry of activity has aroused me from a raucous dreams about Johnny Depp, helicopters and chocolate…dammit. I feel my fingers being chewed off. Then my arm is being used as a scratching post. I feel Magalicous climb on my head and try to chew my hair to its roots. WTF? I grab her and place her not so gently on the end of the bed. I lay back down.
1:00:03am – A flying object with hair has inexplicably landed on my face and my ear is being chewed off and licked excitedly. Ugh…I make the fatal mistake of standing up. She thinks its morning and takes that as a sign we will be getting up now to play!! “Yay! Lets’ all go outside and run around and eat grass and bark at the neighbours!” I grab her but not in time…she leaves a puddle on my comforter. UUUUggggghhhh….
1:05am – Magalicious is in her crate for the remainder of the night. Hubby rolls over.
“Where’s the comforter?”
“The dog peed on it”
“Oh. Where is she now?”
“In her crate where she’s staying” I say emphatically.
“Aw, that’s a sin. She likes sleeping with us”
“IN THE PAST TWO HOURS WHEN HAS SHE SLEPT?”
“Huh…I didn’t notice anything

Yeah, I have the same problem with a 75 lb Boxer who thinks she is the size of Magalicious…
I think your sleep would be much more disturbed than mine.
She also snores, has nightmares and shakes uncontrollably in her damn sleep!!!
It’s a good thing these animals are cute…
I’m with you on that one!
And you bought this dog… why?
Ummmm….it’s all Hubby’s fault. I blame him.
I knew it.
Ah puppies…. crates are the best place for a puppy at night if you want to get any sleep and retain brain function. She can have bed time with people when she has learned calm and manners… in a year or two 😉
Hmmm…I guess we took her out too soon. She is adjusting well, but we still put her in her crate when she gets a little out of hand.
