• Garrett is so not a morning dog and I love it! He usually sleeps in till around noon. Then he crawls out of bed rubs his face on the carpet with his butt up in the air, jumps up, twirls, and streches. Then after that its off to the patio to lay in the sun for a few hours. This dog knows how to relax like a pro hah!
    he's a dog bed lover too. He gets so excited when we bring home a new dog bed. B's are such funny dogs


  • Morning dog what's that? LOL

    Tiggy seems to enjoy snooze just as much as I do, and don't even think of trying to get the boxer up, lol that's like trying to move a 70lbs of dead weight


  • Hollie's a morning dog (she HAS to go to work), unless it's a weekend. She will get me up to take her out, but once back inside it's back to bed with daddy until he gets up!!!


  • Lenny is a morning dog. He will come to the bed, stand on his back legs with his front paws on the edge of the bed and alternately tap them to wake me up. its quite funny…

    tayda is not a morning or an evening dog. she would sleep all day if i let her... she's more of a mealtime dog. ha ha.


  • @Tayda_Lenny:

    she's more of a mealtime dog. ha ha.

    LOL…too funny, aren't they all 😉


  • Ok so just in the last few days, Lenny and Tayda have turned into 3-4am dogs. They both get up and shake shake shake and smack their lips and scratch at their beds and generally just make a lot of noise! I don't know what happened! I hope it stops soon.

    Do you think they sense some kind of insecurity in their entirely new environment to "go outside"? I do hope they settle with you soon, if that is the case.


  • I should mention - that Duke and Daisy wait dutifully till I get out of bed to wake up in the morning. My DH kindly covers them with sleep shirt/blankets when they're wedged next to me each morning. DH is usually 1st up and out the door each day. D&D are morning dogs, once I am up. :rolleyes: They count on me being responsible for them - feeding and going outside - every day - clockwork. I just love loving them.:)


  • My 3 will stay in bed as long as they can. I get up early (5:30) and they all just shift over to my husband. He is usually up by 8 or 9 (retired) and the boys move into the family room with him. Nicky, my girl, never gets up before noon, except for Sundays when we go to the dog park to meet up with all their basenji pals. On Sundays she is up by 9!

  • I never heard of a morning basenji before. Do they realy exist…
