So, I have learned that my 5 month old dog is a better sleeper than my 25 month old son. I'm not really sure how I feel about this. I suppose it would be too much to ask for everyone in the house to be asleep at the same time. And I am knocking on wood as I say this because I don't want for Ike to change his ways.
Seriously. We have gone to bed at 11pm, the past 2 nights and he has slept in his crate next to my side of the bed without making a peep until 7am. Rock on, Ike! He totally knows the way to my heart - don't disrupt my sleep.
The girls came home from Meme's yesterday afternoon. I am slightly afraid that they are going to be disappointed in our choice of dog. Ike is pretty much everything that Chris and I want in a dog. He doesn't bark (except to welcome the neighbor dog, Ella, to his yard), he follows us where ever we go in the house, and when we stop moving, he lays down for a cat nap. Usually in my lap. Which is really more cat like than dog.
The girls have been asking when they can play fetch with him. Only, thus far, he shows no interest in fetch. So far, he just wants to be loved on. Which is fine by me.
