Hey, It's Time To Get Up by Abby (Writer's Workshop)


It was cold this morning--good for sleeping, but then I saw the clock and it was 15 minutes past time to get up.! Two things flashed in my brain:  (1)  I'm hungry--time for breakfast! and (2) Then it's my walk time!  I know for sure that if they sleep on, my walk will get cut short and I do not like that!  So, I nuzzled Gerard and he woke Karen up and all was well.  Gerard thanked me but I was just doing my job so I got my normal walk in! 

Manny normally starts meowing which wakes them up, but I guess he wasn't as hungry this morning as usual so I had to step up to the plate!  We all work together pretty well around here.  Still, Gerard says we should get an alarm clock but I think us pets do a good job of waking them up in the morning.  Woof!  Woof!

What do you know for sure? Please leave a comment as this is the last day for comments to count for 50 cents each to be donated to Canine Lifeline--My Favorite Charity that saved my life! I owe them big time! Woo Hoo!

This post is in response to Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop Prompt:  "What I know for sure."

Love how creatures of habit get us to give them their walk, pets, and treats!

What I know for sure? The smell of coffee wakes me up - and I need you to come scare the squirrels away from my birdfeeder!

Hi, - thanks for your comment on my blog. Look forward to reading more of your posts.
And glad I made it in time for your donation to the Canine Lifeline.
Last week (for the Writing Workshop), I also pledged a donation to the Humane Society where we recently adopted a kitty!
Thanks again!

Honestly, that Abby is one articulate dog!!

Mountain Woman said...

Well, I know in the morning, I'll have coffee, feed dogs, check email, feed horses and then clean up the yard. Not at all glamorous.

I hope you made a lot of money for your charity. Can't wait to do my count tomorrow too. What a great idea.

Good job Abby. You have to do what you have to do and going for that morning walk is very important.

Have a woof, woof day. :)

I love this whole idea of writing from the POV of the pets. How sweet!

Abby says: Thanks for all your comments!

Leading Mama:
Some humans are more trainable than others.

Sheila Siler:
Squirrels? I'd love to come help you out the them! Woo! Hoo! Oh Gerard, can I go? PLEASE!

Dianna:
Whew! I'm glad you made it in time too! The Humane Society is also a very good organization. Glad you got a kitty from them and did this comment/donation thing on your blog too! Pawsome! 3 cheers for you: Woof! Woof! Woof!

Waytenmom:
Thank you very much. The cats here actually taught me how to blog. I never knew about blogging when I was at the shelter. Thanks for commenting on my post! Woof! Woof!

Mountain Woman:
That is good you feed your dogs first! I get fed first too! I think because Karen doesn't want me barking. I can bark louder than Manny meows. Hope you get lots of comments for charity on your blog too! Woof! Woof!

Sandee:
Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment! You are absolutely right about that! Woof! Woof!

Suzanne:
Glad you liked my post! Thanks for stopping and and leaving a comment. Woof! Woof!

Those morning routines are important, Abby!

BeadedTail said...

Abby, we're glad you didn't let them sleep in so you didn't miss your walk and breakfast! When I wake my daddy up, he knows better than to wake mommy up too like Gerard woke up Karen. Angel wakes her up several times a night as it is!

Woofs,
Sadie

Ludicrous Mama said...

I have a toddler for that. Not as reliable as a pet-alarm-clock. But if I groggily put out some Lucky Charms and turn on some Spongebob... I mean Sesame Street, it's like having a snooze button!

Abby said...

Sharbytes:
I know they are. Thanks for your comment!

Sadie at Beaded Tail:
Usually Karen likes getting up early too. She sometimes wakes up around 4 a.m. but then goes back to sleep and gets up with Gerard around 4:30 so it was good he woke her up. She said she was off in dreamland.

Ludicrous Mama:
Ha, ha! Thanks for your funny comment! Woof! Woof!

This is what I know for sure: animals are our treasure ...

I also had a wonderful dog like you Abby but I lost him a few years ago ... We're planning to get another soon ...

SnipeWife said...

Very cute. We had one dog that would bark when the newspaper got delivered or when a truck drove by--didn't matter what time of day. Our grey does not do stairs so she sleeps in her crate/room on a different floor. Greys don't really bark (singles at least) but I bet she'd nudge me awake if I let her stay in the room with me. Stopping by from Momma Kat's...

Greyscale Territory said...

O Abby! You sound so caring! Our Shadow makes a great alarm clock too! She knows to purr loudly in our ear if it's time to get up!

You look great in your photo!

Abby said...

Bette:
Sad about your dog but sure hope you get another one. There are lots more nice dogs in shelters waiting for good homes! Woof!

SnipeWife:
Sad you dog doesn't sleep in the same room as you do. I'm glad I get to sleep with my owners. Woof!

Greyscale Territory:
Oh, I am caring . . . and friendly too! Cats can be quite loud when they choose to be. Glad you like my photo! Woof! Woof!
