Practical applications: WAIT

Madison gets up with H-mom at 5:30, to get the teen-human up and ready for school and out the door. She leaves a few minutes before the slow and tired and sleepy teen-human, and walks with H-mom up to the corner to make sure that the school bus waits. WAITS. Madison understands that command. "WAIT." She is a great help at sitting patiently and keeping the bus in line. The bus and the teen-human connect at about 6:10.

Then back up to the 19th floor, to watch the sun rise from the balcony door.

The dog park doesn't even open until 7am.

Can you imagine the torture of that WAIT?

The mayhem and pure joy of the following 2 hours has already been well-documented. Madison runs, swims, tousles, chases ... it's all a dog can do to fill the time with enough silly behavior. Madison's new nickname is "Goofy." H-mom will address this later.

It's home by 9am.

And then it's naptime. All day long. Snoozing, stretching, relaxing.

H-mom will just have to WAIT until Madison feels like moving.

Aw, Madison, is your H-mom really calling you Goofy? Well, you sure are a pretty Goofy.

See ya!

We get up at 5:30 too, but lucky for us there are no teen humans lurking about.

It is amazing what one can accomplish before 7AM, huh? I hope your h-mom naps with you.

We feel your pain, Madison! We get up at 4AM and eat breakie at 6AM and we have to wait a whole hour for the slowpoke hoomans to finish their breakie so we can go for a walkie! Can't they hurry it up?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

And now you had to WAIT two days for our comment! We're starting to catch up ... we are WAITING for the end of the school year so there'll maybe be a little more time. Right now we WAIT to hear the garage door open, cuz that's when the teen-Girl gets home.

Madion, you've got one beautiful coat and one HUGE paw and one impressive nose. We think you are pretty incredible. It's good to see ya! We'll try to get back soon.

Heading to Florida in less than a month,
