Dear Zulu

Photo by me

Dear Zulu,

In case you weren't aware, you're the light of our lives, the apple of our eyes....we couldn't ask for a better dog. You're smart, you give awesome high fives, you never bark or growl, you twirl better than any other dog I've ever seen, you have mastered the art of cuddling and best of all you make us laugh til we cry. You are the perfect dog.

So Zu girl, can I ask you a question?

Why have you decided to stop sleeping through the night? Why at 1 1/2 years old are you, a perfectly crate trained pup, waking up at 4am crying and scratching to get out? You never have to go to the bathroom, it seems as if you just want to play. Where did your schedule get so messed up? And can we please go back to getting a full 8 hours of sleep?

We would really like that.

Love,

Your (very tired) parents

Thanks Vanessa - but don't be too jealous...she has her moments :)

Melanie - she is easily forgiven. Which is why she is snuggling on my lap as I type this.

Sorry Zulu girl is keeping you up. Maybe she is preparing you both for that prediction I had. Hmmm...

Hee Hee Zulu! You need to take a lesson from your dear friend Waldo who needs to learn how to stop sleeping and wake up already! Such a cutie pie!
