Funny story about taking a nap todAY


Some may know already from reading this blog.. but my sleeping pattern alwAYS gets shot to hell when my kids stay with my ex for the summer. To date I have not slept more than 2 hrs in any given 24 hr period since Tuesday last week.

Anyhow to the story.. Well I walked down to the lake ...Lake Palestine SW of Tyler,Texas. My kids dog's stay with me simply because my ex does not allow animals in the house. Anyhow I went down to the lake laid out on the grass. I was so ready to sleep. For some reason (that I was highly grateful for) I was just sleepy, can't focus, tired. My thoughts were only finally a nap(Now mind you. The dogs Stay with me. Which means they went to the lake with me. I have 2 pitbulls and one dauchsund. the oldest pit and the dauchsund are the same age. 9 mos old. and the 2nd pit is only 3 mos old.. All babies. Awana the oldest of the pits. She is very protective of the weener dog. She cries and Awana will be right there.) Well the dogs romped and fro;ic down at the waters edge, I was going to sleep. life is good. Now I know I fell into a deep sleep twice. Because the first time i dozed off, I was snoring so loud, I woke myself up. Course Awana had came up and stomped her paw right in the middle of my forehead to shut me up. So I turned to the side, started dozing again, and the little pup came up started jerking my pant leg back and forth. Well I paid no attention to this.. And went to sleep. Next thing I know I am being dragged as fast as awana could move into the lake. THe bitch soaked me. And was smiling..It was a sight to see.... Who would of thought she would do it. Neredless to say I picked all three dogs up one at a time and threw them in the lake. They all stopped smiling then..

*LOL* How funny! Gotta love the personality of some dogs! It sounds as if they're planning on keeping you on your toes while your kids are away so you don't get too complacent. I can relate though. I don't sleep well when my kiddos are with my ex. I hope you get some good long restful sleep soon! Sounds as if you deserve it!

Just have to love them dogs! Have two of my own and boy are they a handful! If your sleeping just keep them on a very long leash and neither the dogs or you will get wet. Has worked for me everytimeI have napped near a lake or bathtub!

nThanks for the suggestion areugame - but I would never leash them up when they are in their own yard. I should ave made them stay up at the house. But like I said they are no different the kids. if you want to take a nap. You do it when they do.

I love dauchsunds. My best dog was a mini! Fearless little thing too. Protective, mischievious, and a whole lot of fun. I sure do miss her.

Kiethcancook - I had a lady once tell me to be careful with my pitbull around the dauchsund.. or Dauchsunds name is Little 'b'. And if the pit got a little to physical.. In seconds Little'b' would have awana's nose bleeding from being bit so many times. Awana is a brendal Pitbull. and is very protective of both the new pit we just got and even more of the dauchsund. SO yes they are fearless. - Original bred to go after badgers and moles.
