We are very much a household of routine, even the dogs. During the week they sleep all day while we’re gone. When we’re home on the weekends we completely wreck their nap schedule (ditto work from home Thursdays). Being home for four days? Ugh. They were beyond tired!
Midas was so tired, he just couldn’t handle anything. Think of an overtired toddler. By Sunday, if any of the other dogs even came near him, he barked at them. While he was eating he barked at nothing! He had everyone in the house giving him all sorts of space. Finally, I picked him up, snuggled him into my shoulder and let him take a 30 minute nap. I didn’t get anything done, but at least he was better after a little sleep.
The things we do for these dogs!
