My dogs are out of sorts!

My husband is a private pilot and goes to the Arlington, Washington fly-in every year. I went with him the first year that he went, but have not been able to go with him the last two years. We have two Shih Tzu's and they just don't know what to do when either I or my husband are absent. We took them with us the first year we went. They are great travelers and campers!
This year they stayed home with me and are up and down/in and out all night long. One gets up and stays outside for awhile then the other one does the same thing. It's like they know that "daddy" is not in bed and believe he will be coming down the driveway any minute! The brown one is "Daisy Mae" and the white one is "Honey." They are very sweet and good company, except when "daddy" is missing. Mind you, I have to go to work everyday and need my sleep, obviously, Honey and Daisy don't see my side of things! If this keeps up, I am going to be one groutchy women by the time my husband gets home on Sunday!
I'm thinking my nights might improve if I would get off my lazy butt and take the dogs out for a walk or run, before or after I go to work. Now if I can just make this a reality, I guess I shouldn't have bought that chocolate chip ice-cream yesterday, huh?! It's so hard to get started, but I know once I am outside and see Honey and Daisy run up and down with the smiles on their faces it will be easier. They really love be outside doing anything and so do I.
Ok, I love my dogs and I love to sleep, so we are going to go for a walk today and I will let you know if we all get a good nights sleep tonight........


  1. I hope it works. I know when I have my hyper grandkids, I have them run around a lot and they settle in early! Good luck...

  2. Yep, a run is in your future if you plan on sleeping!
    Your dogs are VERY cute!

  3. What precious babies. It just shows you how tuned in our pets are to us. I used to say my doxie was my emotional tampon. My kitty is just as tuned into me as my sweet Frankie was.

    I love this pic. You can really see their personalities.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog today. It was like a hug. :-)
