Fire Me Now! Please!

So….I was being a good puppy Mom and Wife when I told Tim on Saturday “I’ll take Sunday morning!”  Since he’d taken puppy duty on Saturday a.m. and Motzy had gotten up at 5.  After all, we should take turns shouldn’t we?

Yeah, well…I hear Motzy at 3 a.m.

He’s never gotten up before 5 since we got him!


Ok, fine – out we go and he does his duty.  We come back in and I lie on the couch while he runs around the living room playing with his toys and by 3:30 he’s lying down to sleep.

{insert fist pump}

I scoot him into his kennel and head back to bed.

The next wakeup call was at 6:07.

Out we go again, duties done, back in, and on the couch I go…and off goes Motzy to play with his toys.  At this point I’m exhausted.  Needless to say I zonked out.  Literally. I finally wake up all of a sudden at 7:20 as he decides to join me on the couch.  I look around (after escaping puppy licks that have now wiped my face clean) and find what you see in the picture behind one of our chairs.

Instant thought…”Huh…I’m so fired from this puppy watch duty”.


Then it occurred to me that this may not be such a bad thing!

I clean up his mess and put him in his kennel (as he was falling back to sleep) and sneak back to bed.  I barely get laid back down and  he starts whining and barking again.


All I can think is, “I must really love this dog” and head back out where I take him out of his kennel and lay back down on the couch.

What happens next?

I’m sure you can see it coming…

Motzy joined me and fell asleep on the end of the couch.

I guess he loves me too.



Have a great Sunday everyone!
