It turns out that Maggie is a very accurate alarm clock…even on the weekends. If I don’t get up according to her internal clock, she will either come to the side of the bed and let me know it is time to wake up or she will jump up on the bed and put her front paws on me and continue the “time to get up quiet ruff”. As I head off to the WC to start the day, Maggie joins me to keep me on the path to her breakfast (she really loves her Stella & Chewy’s). I always set the bath mat where I need it each morning and while I’m in the shower, Maggie turns it into a dog bed. She just lays there until I’m finished. When it is time to put it back on the edge of the tube, I have to tug it out from under her paws. This has become our daily routine and so far Maggie is winning the battle.
