Lately I have found myself trying to convince Abby that she is in fact a dog and not a rooster. For about the past 2 weeks she has had the urge to bark in my face some between 5:00 & 6:00am. Not really sure what is going with that. When I get out of bed she doesn't rush to go outside and potty she just wants me to be awake. While this doesn't really bother me Tuesday-Friday when I have to be up at 7:00am it does bother me on the weekend when I could be sleeping in. We have tried really wearing her out just before bed. We make sure the last thing we do before going to sleep is taking her out to potty. Nothing seems to work. Sadly, I am a sucker and can't be mad at her for more than about 5 seconds, so she will probably live the rest of her life thinking she is a rooster. How could I ever be mad at something this precious!
