For today’s Oh, Happy Day! post, Happy would like to share with you:
“A Day in the Life of Happy”
5:30AM: Birds annoyingly chirp and wake me up. I bark back. Stupid birds.
5:31AM: Daddy jams toe on babygate looking for his shoes. Bout time he got up.
5:32AM: Daddy comes and rescues me from crate so I can go attack birds. Oh, and potty too (duh).
5:33AM: Ring bell. Impatiently perform the pee dance by the door. Why does daddy make me wait? How rude.
5:34AM: I successfully water the lawn. (You’re welcome, Mother Nature)
5:35AM: Go inside for breakfast numero uno.
5:35:15AM: Finish eating breakfast. Lick bowl to collect remaining kibble dust. Burp.
5:36AM: Beg to follow dad into the big bed. Dad points to crate. Whatevs.
(SideNote: For some reason I am no longer sleeping in the big bed at night with the humans. I kind of like having my own bed to myself. I can stretch out all I want!)
7:50AM: Wake up and listen to daddy get ready for work.
8:15AM: Daddy leaves me, per usual, looking really snazzy. Where he goes? Psh, you got me…
8:30AM: Mom feeds me breakfast number two
9:00AM: Hang with mom while she clickclacks away on some type of blackbox… I think it’s called A tee-eye-83? Apparently it’s some type of cal-que-lay-tor…thing. Eh. Looks complicated… I cut her some slack and let her do her thing.
10:30AM: Watch mom run around the house doing chores
11:00AM: See mom head into the room where she keeps those tasty-lookin’ running shoes of hers… I know they’re special. So I don’t dare touch ‘em.
11:15AM: Watch mom head over to front door and reach for pink harness. Oohhhh SNAP! I think it’s time!
11:30AM: GO FOR A RUN WITH MOM!!!
11:31AM-1:00PM: Smell the smells…meet and greet the neighborhood pupsqueaks. Love on the mailman.
1:01PM: Get back home and mosy on over to my water dish. That H20 is some goooood stuff.
1:02PM: Hop up onto the big bed; wait and watch patiently while mom cleans up and gets ready for work
1:15PM: Snicker at mom when her favorite song comes on the radio. Crazy lady, I tell ya. White humans can’t dance.
1:20PM: Chillax with mom. I think I know what’s coming… sigh…
1:30PM: Yep, I was right. Guess it’s time to head on over to my crate.
1:32PM: (Inside crate) I’m proud of my new-found attitude about this crate-thing. I don’t think I’ve whined in about two weeks! Plus, this background music is some good stuff…
1:35PM: Man oh man are my eyelids are heavy. That was a good run…I could use a nap!
3:30PM: What was that noise? It better not be a SQUIRREL! Oh, wait…that must’ve been a dream.
6:00PM: Wake up from afternoon siesta, Where am I? What day is it?
6:00:30PM: Evening stretch routine
6:05PM: Uh-oh, I have to pee. Where are my humans?!
6:10PM: Listen for honk from parking lot
6:19PM: *honk honk* Yay! Daddy’s magical travel machine returns from wherever he goes during the day
6:20PM: Daddy walks through the door and frees me from prison
6:20:02PM: Greet daddy with somersault jumps and kisses
6:21PM: Go outside for potty time.
6:22PM: Take a walk to metal box. Sniff around while Daddy fiddles with metal box and magically extracts envelopes and papers. Tilt head and watch Daddy flip through pile of “stuff.”
6:28PM: *whimper*…Where’s mom?
6:29PM: Tummy growls. What the fluff?… What are you waiting for, dad? Feeeeeeed meeee!!!
6:30PM: Daddy grabs bowl for din din. Watch closely to make sure he doesn’t skimp on the kibble. Forced to sit, stay, lay, nutmeg and kiss for my dinner. A dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do.
6:30:15PM: Done with dinner. 15 seconds flat. Mmmhm, that’s how we do.
6:32PM: *whimper*(…again). Where’s mom?
6:33PM: Ring bell for potty time.
6:34PM: Tinkle tinkle piddle squat (to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, of course).
6:36PM: Ring bell for potty time.
6:37PM: Fake out squat.
6:39PM: Ring bell for potty time.
6:40PM: Pee-reserves kick in.
6:41PM: Ring bell for potty time. Daddy gives me “the look.” OK, OK. You caught me. Where’s Pig-Pig?
7:20PM: Mommy walks through the door. SQUEEEEE!!! Perform freakout dance and wolf-howl. Attempt to sneak in the infamous “sofa-plunge” before Mommy and Daddy simultaneously yell “OFF!”
7:21PM: Relax — all is well with the world. Both my humans are home and within eyesight. WIN!
8:15PM: WAZZAT? I hear a *jingle jingle* coming down the stairwell… Could it be the neighbs? … JAMEO!! *Dart to front door to ring bell*
8:15:05PM: Ring bell harder.
8:15:11PM: Ring bell even harder.
8:15:45PM: Trot over to daddy to see what’s up. C’monnnnn! I rang the bell!
8:15:55PM: *stare down daddy with evil glare*
8:16PM: Strut my stuff back over to front door.
8:16:15PM: Swat bell off doorknob. Carry bell by string to Daddy. I need this, Daddy.
8:17PM: Bound out the door with daddy. IT’S PLAYTIME! Bah!Where did Jameo go? Hop across yard to find my bestie. Oh look, there’s Henry, my other bestie! Heyyyyy Hanry Heyyyy!
8:31PM: Wrestle time with Henry over. Fingers…check. Toes… check. Tail…still curly? Check! Success. I need a nap.
8:45PM:Wake up with a boost of energy. Play with football. Play with Donkey. Where’d I leave Pig-Pig? And how the heck did Hippo get under the couch so far? Shmeh. *Blitz around house*
9:00PM: Wake up in middle of living room floor. Lift up head – is this real life? Zonk out again.
9:45PM: Wake up in mom’s arms on the couch while she watches TV. How’d I get up here? Oh well, this is nice… so comfy. Back to sleep I go.
11:15AM: Feeling of floating through the air. Must be that time…Daddy’s carrying me to bed. Another good day. Hello, crate… hello, bed.
Do y’all ever wonder what your pets are thinking throughout the day? Does your dog scarf down food super-fast, too? How are your dog’s days similar to Happy’s?
