Peppermint has developed a predictable schedule. On weekdays she stays curled up in bed most mornings while I get Cam up and ready for school before the sun rises, but on weekends or holidays, when we want to sleep in, she’s the first one up and ready for action. If I’m not awake by a “certain” time (whatever that may be in the Jack Russell mind), she pounces on my chest and licks my face until I get up.
This morning I had to grab my camera as she sat by the door, imploring me to get downstairs to let her out. With the sunlight streaming in, it was hard to resist a quick photo. She wasn’t all that amused, though, as not only was I disturbing the set routine, but the squirrels were also out there just waiting to be chased.
