You Know You Love Your Hav When ...

Sometimes it's the little things we do that add up to be important. See if you can give a recent example of something small ,that really shows you care. So my example to this question is... when I keep my legs to the side of the bed when sleeping so that Molly has room at the foot of the bed.

When she was sore from a vaccine and laying in bed with me, my husband brought her some water in a paper cup to drink out of so she wouldn't have to move. ( she loves drinking out of paper cups for some reason..talk about being catered to!)

I get up at 4:45am every day to spend some "snuggle time" with Bear before I have to get ready for work. I am so not a morning person, but I cherish that quietness in the morning, just him and I. <3

Ditto to Dave's comment and yes going to bed an hour early because he (Huey) wants to.

i stay up later than I really should so that Charley can have some snuggle time on the big bed. At this point he doesn't sleep on the bed, but he sooooo loves our snuggle hour.
Also, I gave up garaging my car (a new car at that!) and turned my garage into an outdoor Charley playroom. I hate scraping the ice off the windshield, but it doesn't compare to the joy Charley gets everyday in his playroom running through his tunnels, jumping over the rungs of a ladder,going through other obstacles, his box of toys, litter pan, and all a little guy would want.
Hey, how much time do I have here? Should I say more...

My ollie has separation anxiety. he's gotten better, but he has only been alone once, in his whole life with me. when I have mtgs at work, I always find a classroom for him to be in so he is not alone.

and yes, Ollie has his own side of the bed.

Wow, turning the garage into a playroom - that is a huge thing! Do you have a photo? Would love to see that. With our wet winters, that might be a good idea! If I ever manage to get mine cleaned out! I have just found that our lives have changed just as much by bringing the Havs into our home as much as having kids. My outings are planned around making sure the boys are taken potty before I leave and not being gone so long that they may become uncomfortable.

Charley loves the playroom (my old garage that is) as much as I do. It leads off from the kitchen and sometimes I open the kitchen door so that he has the run of the full length of the kitchen plus the garage. We love to throw the ball and bring it back. Also, the sides of my garage are lined with shelves and so I've used xpens all along the edges so Charley can't get into trouble. The opening of the garage is xpened off too so that Charley can hang out outside when he wants and watch the neighbood go by. It so works for us. We do alot of our training out there. Sometimes his dog buddies come in and play as well. During the summer or rain or bad weather we just play inside. If you can find a way to do this - do it!! It is so worth it.
