I'm not an early bird. Most mornings, I prefer to lie in bed and do an extra 15-20 minutes of stretches, yawns, and face rubs (against the mattress or pillow) after I become officially awake. Usually I come out of dreamland (dreamland with BOYZ to be exact) when mum gets up. Every morning after she wakes up, the first thing she does is to come kiss me (like EVERYWHERE), pet STINKY (she doesn't kiss him because he landsharks her face) before she goes in the bathroom to get ready.
Sometimes before she kisses me, she would ask me "Are you gonna give me A-hhhhhhhhh KISS-KISS?". I have never said "YES" to that request, but I have always responded by one or more of the following: head-budding (her nose), head-rubbing, nibbling with my SuperTEETH (at her cheeks), pawing (at her face), groaning, moaning, and tail thumping. After the ritual, mum usually goes in the bathroom grinning from cheek to cheek.
While she's in the bathroom, I usually watch from the comfort of MY bed, STINKY run laps around the bed that I'm lying on. Periodically, MY poor mattress would receive random shark bites at its sides. Eventually, after mum comes out of the bathroom, I again watch her from MY bed, put on her dog walking jacket, attempt to calm STINKY down before she gives up, put STINKY's collar and leash on him, reach for my harness, and it isn't until she turns the door nob do I actually get up & out of the bed. A SuperDALE needs all the rest she can get!
This morning, I had a near death experience. Yes, my 10 years of life flashed before my SuperEYES, and I almost DIED.
(mum: get ready to see my drama queen to the fullest extend!)
Did you see I choked from howling at one moment??
Seriously, you can dub my pitiful voice with any of the following lines and it would make A LOT of sense!
When I first hear the most dreaded question, before she even touches me....
Line 1: Oh My DOGGGGGGGGGGGGGG...PLEEEEEEEESE DON'T KIS..(too late already)
Line 2: PLEEEEESE DOGGGGGG DON'T LET IT STA......(too late)..RTE......
During the torture......
Line 1: Please GOOOOOOO brush your TEEEEEEETH.... I can't BREAAAAAAATH ...
Line 2: STOPPPPPPPPPP... I am the KINGGGGGGGGGGGG of terrieeeeeeerrrssss...you CANNNNN'T do THIIIIIIIIIS-ooooooooooo
Line 3: Such INDIGGGGGGGGGGGGNITIEEEEESSSSSS..... I'd rather DIEEEEEEEEE-woooo
Line 4: all the BOYZZZZZZZZ are WAAAAAATCHINNNNNNNNG.... you're EMBARRASSSSSSSING MEEEEEEEE-ooooool......
Sadly, I'm almost certain that I'm not the only one amongst my friends who has suffered a near death experience. LeLe & Trish (The Airechicks), have you had similar experiences? I know my goodest gurrrrlfriend Maggie suffers the same (mum: but she's way more polite than you!!!), and its good that Noah of the Leuradales is all the way in Oz otherwise he'd be in trouble too because mum thinks we look like replicas.
(mum: This morning, when I gave Sunshade my usual wake up "kisses" (usually not that many), she started howling while thumping her tail against the bed (wagging). Something about the sentence "are you gonna give me a kiss-kiss?" has always gotten her excited and wound up, but she has never howled in response!! It was hilarious because it certainly sounded like she was being killed by my kisses. I didn't have my camera handy, so grabbed my iphone.
This is why I rarely need to watch TV. I get more than enough entertainment just watching Sunshade and Jaffa. They never seize to come up with new quirks to make me laugh, surprise me. Sunshade is my 10 year old girl, my animator, my heart!)
