routine

7am: Wakes up. Don't even bother to brush teeth. Go downstairs and Sapphire will be waiting patiently. Whines occasionally.

7.05am: Put her inside crate. Scoop up last night's poop (if there's any left- yes, she eats them!) and clean up.

7.15am: Breakfast! No sunny side up- just dry food.

7.30am: Let her tummy settles while I mop up the floor and hang up her favourite old t-shirt she sleeps on. Dust off hair and I'll have a sneezing fit for a couple of minutes.

7.45-8.30am: Play! I give her a maze ball, where I put some food (nothing extra, its part of her meal earlier) into a rubber ball and let her chase it around. Also hide bits of food so she could sniff'em out.

Somewhere in between: pees and poops. into the crate again. clean again. mop again.

She'll be wanting a belly rub or scratch, at the same time play 'wrestle-with-my-hands'.

9am: Settles, finds sunny spot to lie on.

9am-5pm: Sleep. Shifting from warm and cool spots from time to time.

Somewhere in between: Bird watch. Roll over earth worms. Drink water. Sniff around. Snooze.

5.30-6.30pm: A walk in the park! Jog. Runs occasionally- depends on how fast my two legs could move! I keep her on a leash all the time. Meet other canine friends. Sniff out some butts.

6.30-7.30pm: Panting and satisfied! Cleans her mouth and her paws. Then a game of fetch followed by some obedience training.

8.30pm: All pooped out and ready for a long night of undisturbed sleep!

(of course I usually interrupt her in between ;p)

Hi Hil,
It is so cool that Sapphire has her own blog. Has it been that long since she came to live with you? Happy New Year Sapphire.
