Our dogs always slept in our room with us in their own beds and always took their cue from me. When I got up, they got up. Lately, the last several months, Tyler has decided that he likes getting up around 4:45 am. i pull him through until 5:00, then get up, as I don't know whether he has to go, what with his old bladder and all. He does go out, but it doesn't seem urgent. He has just become an early riser and is full of energy at that time. Before 5:30, we have played "chase me", he's eaten, had his teeth brushed, eyes cleaned and gone for a short walk. Yikes!!! Who needs all of that so early in the morning when they are retired. Hopefully, when it's darker in the morning, things will change. Sure makes for a long day. He isn't a barker though, just a whiner.
