It figures I'd have the oddball dogs...
Mine are definitely morning dogs, just my luck. I am not a morning person so don't particularly enjoy being awakened early on my days off (I hardly ever get to sleep past 7 am). Last night we went to bed a little earlier than usual, so Leni woke me up about an hour before my alarm went off this morning. She was in a playful mood and woke us all up to play!!
Reno is usually wide awake in the mornings, I think because he knows he's going to get to eat! Guido is getting slower about rising since he is so old, but once he is up, he's usually raring to go!
Vinny used to jump up when he heard the alarm go off, put his front paws on the bed (sometimes on my arm), get about an inch from my face, and stare at me until I got up. Reno and Leni stare at me too some mornings and lick my face till they know I'm awake which takes about one wet lick!
