By now you must be starting to get some idea of what a fascinating life I lead as a cute basenji girl. And you're probably wishing you knew exactly how I spend every hour of every day. Well, you are in luck because today I am going to tell you about a typical day for me! Unfortunately, the times listed are kind of approximate because Mom doesn't keep as strict a schedule as I would like her to. But this is the best I can do, under the circumstances!
Start hoping that Mom will wake up and get out of bed. Which she usually does, except if she decides to sleep a little later. Sometimes we can hurry her along a bit by doing some loud licking of our private parts.
Go outside to potty and check on whether anything has changed since last night, plus see if Henry is out in his yard.
BREAKFAST OF DOGS!!!! This is one of my favorite parts of the whole day!
Go outside again if we want to, and especially if we have more pottying to do.
Go upstairs to help Mom check her email and to POST MY BLOG ENTRY, which was actually written the day before.
Snooze a little while Mom takes a shower and gets dressed. I still can't believe she would deliberately get herself all wet like that!
Mom checks her email again, and then we all run downstairs for TREATS! Yay!!!
Go outside again, in case there's anything else we need to do out there.
Snooze some more while Mom eats breakfast and reads the paper. Usually do a GROUP HOWL.
WALKING WITH DOGS!!! Another highlight of the day! First Gabe and I go out walking with Mom, and then Barry and Mel go.
10:00 a.m.--2:00 p.m.
Naptime! Mom often leaves the house and abandons us at about this time. Sometimes she goes to the Humane Society or sometimes she goes someplace else. So mostly we dogs just hang out and take naps.
Greet Mom at the door when she comes home from wherever. Go outside to potty.
Mom checks her email again and lets me know if there are any comments on my blog.
Mom sometimes takes a nap. She invites us dogs to help her take her nap, which we are glad to do!
WRITE MY BLOG for the next day. Or sometimes this doesn't get done until in the evening.
SUPPER OF DOGS!!!! Another extremely favorite time of day!
Go outside again.
Take a short nap while Mom eats supper.
More computer stuff -- finish blog, do research for a future blog entry, let Mom do Facebook, etc.
Watch TV or movies on DVD. Or sleep if the TV shows are boring.
Bedtime TREATS! Then outside to potty one last time.
More email, Facebook, blog, whatever still needs to be done on the computer. Maybe snooze a little while Mom finishes up her computer stuff.
BEDTIME OF DOGS. Decide who's going to sleep where, including whether anybody is going to sleep with Mom.
And there it is -- my fabulous daily schedule as it more or less usually happens. I just wish Mom would do a better job of sticking to it!
