Just what he needs...

When I woke up this morning, I was surprised to realize that Jip did not wake me up with his usual hour-long barking routine.  Instead, I woke up in my warm bed to the sound of my phone alarm clock.  This put me in a significantly better than usual just-rolled-out-of-bed mood.  Usually I wake up feeling like Cruella D'Evil. 

 I am not a morning person.

This morning, however, I sleepily stumbled my way into the kitchen to let the dogs outside and found the reason why Jip was not interested in barking this morning.  He got into the cupboard and had been licking the contents out of a bag of brown sugar.  When I found him he was sitting in his bed, the soggy bag of sugar across the kitchen, looking at me with big innocent eyes.  He was practically saying, "I don't know who took the sugar out of the cabinet and somehow rolled the sides of the bag down and licked it all.  It most certainly could not have been me."

So now he is going to be all hopped-up on sugar all day.  Just what a dog with an already excessive amount of energy needs.

  1. Oh no! What a way to start a morning :( And just another reason I'm sometimes glad I have a dog the size of a football- it's a bit harder for him to get into cabinets!

    Hopefully your day only gets better from here!
