Mischief Monday - You don't need a nap

Look at my little face - I can't be that much of a bother!

The Setting:
Sunday afternoon - a very tired Lady in need of a nap.

Her mistake:
Inviting the dogs to nap with her.

The mischief:
First all 3 start to wrestle on her. Now the Lady is happy that we are all playing nicely, but she really wants to sleep and have us wrestle at a later time.
After all the wrestling - Emma asks to go out! [we have had some progress on this front, some accidents, but she is now starting to ask - Sunday she asked 7 times and did her business outside 9/10 times]. While Lady is thrilled that she is asking, she is not thrilled to be getting up from her nap.
After the outing, round 2 of wrestling.
Lady tries to convince us to settle, but we don't.
After a bit, Emma asks to go out again. Lady is happy and annoyed. Emma goes out and looks at her. Lady realizes Emma has asked purely for attention.
They come back in and since it has been 30 minutes since Lady tried to start her nap, she puts Emma in the crate, takes the other 2 to the room and after a few minutes of whining, Emma settles and she gets her nap.

The next setting:
2 am and 3:30 am.

Her mistake:
Having toys for us to chew

The mischief:
Emma ate some rope toy and what looks like a rock (Lady has no idea where Emma found the rock) and was up throwing up in the night. And of course then peeing on the floor. Emma seems in fine spirits this morning, so no cause for concern.
Lady wonders why we don't want her to sleep. Today was her only early morning all week, which sucks enough thanks to the time change. 

Lady is really looking forward to going to work today. She loves us all, but she is looking forward to a few dog free hours. She also should be home in time for a nap . . . .

  7. My mom says that the springing forward thing makes humans sleepier for the next week. I say play on...who needs a nap when you can play instead?


  8. Mom said to tell you when they first brought me home from the crualella deville puppy mill i was horrible behaved. it was just like having a new baby in the house only i tore my diapers off and ran around crazy...crazy biting them and anyone else in site. They thought they might have to bring a exorcist to the house just so they could get a good nights rest. Plus, she works with non-furkid people so everyone thought she was nuts anyway, finally one night when she was really tired and couldn't handle it anymore she plopped me in bed with her and dad, and I laid right down and went to almost 3 years later, and even more pugs from the mill, I still sleep right between them peacefully! It will get better. Mom said she lowered her house standards when we all came to live with her and somedays she is just thankful for clean mop water!!!!

  11. Sometimes Shiner wakes me up too. Usually by barking. Unfortunately, it usually wakes my baby up too...

  12. Your poor mummy!! Be careful guys, she mights get to tired for walkies :o
    Love Milo :)

  13. I wake mummy up to go out too, usually around 3am. Even though I go out before bedtime and rarely drink in the nighttime. Sometimes when we head back in I race upstairs and make myself comfortable on her side of the bed BOL

  14. When THEY are home, They have to pay attention to US! That's the rule. We don't think you did anything wrong. You'll have her trained soon.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  15. I agree, poor mommy! I hope that today's nap went better!

  16. Good exercise for momma, BOL
