Our pets morning routines differ for each one of them.
Bonnie pup sets off her Bonnie Bark Alarm when she feels it’s time to get up or she thinks she is missing out on something. Thank goodness she is now back to sleeping in past 4:00am. When I open her crate door she just stands there for a bit relishing in the fact that she can come out of her crate but wanting to do so when she wants to.
Belle pup is our late sleeper and will open a sleepy eye to look at me when I open her crate door. Often she stays put to get a few more minutes of sleep. Then she slowly stretches her way out of the crate and into the room and comes to me as if to say “Well Good Morning, I’m up!”
The pups then wait in the living room for Greg to come down stairs and enjoys a quick good morning love and cuddle that starts the day out well for all 3 of them. During the course of the early morning each pup comes to me at separate times for a love and cuddle from me.
Linus kitty will meow a good morning unless he is busy elsewhere in the house. He usually quiet in the morning unless he is mousing then he’s anything but quiet! Linus is still learning that cuddles are a good thing, he prefers quick drive by pats.
Lucy our matriarch kitty greets us with a good morning meow then proceeds to follow both Greg and I from room to room and surface to surface until she gets a good morning hug and a cuddle. If we don’t see or hear her she reaches out a paw as we walk by and snag us which usually works well to get our attention.
No matter how they greet us, the morning isn’t complete without their good morning greeting.
