He’s Also An Alarm Clock

Yes, Timmy is also an alarm clock, but he is set to go off one hour too early!  On weekdays I get out of bed at about 6:15am.  However, I am woken up about one hour earlier than that almost every morning.  As I have mentioned, Timmy is my little shadow.  He usually sticks close to me, day and night.  He goes to bed in his crate every night when I go to bed.  He sleeps right next to my side of the bed, as he has since he was a puppy.  We have tried leaving his crate door open during the night, but it didn’t work out.  If the crate door is open and he hears or smells an animal outside, he will run around the house barking, in the middle of the night!  If he is closed in his crate he doesn’t get bothered at all.  I imagine that he feels that it’s not his job when he’s closed into his cozy little crate!  But, he seems to feel that when 5:00am rolls around it’s snuggling time.  He will paw at his crate door and make quiet little moaning noises to tell me it’s time!  I reach over and open his door, lift the covers up, and he hops in bed with us, under the covers!  He stays on the outside edge of the bed next to me because if I let him go between my husband and I, he tries to push my husband out of bed with his paws!  He lays down snuggled up to me and goes right to sleep until it’s time to get up.

He is the best alarm clock I have ever had!

It is so funny that when my husband or I tell people that we have a Parson Russell Terrier, they say things like, “Oh, No!” and think that they are nervous, annoying dogs.  I wonder if in general they are.    Timmy certainly can be an active dog and he loves to run and play with his humans, but he is a lazy snuggly dog, too!  Yep, I love that dog!

    He is a super cutie. I thought he was a jack russell. At any rate he is adorable.

    […] Timmy learned to give his paw on command last week.  He is tired of this new trick already.  Everyone is always asking him for his paw.  Often times, they don’t even offer him a doggie biscuit in payment for his paw.  How rude! […]
