    So the boys won't let me sleep past 6 a.m. Where are they now? In my bed sleeping. Well at least they were.

    It will be my turn to name the next pets in the family (yes we have turns, you'd think we were all 5 years old. )

    I have had names picked out for years. I want a male dog named Jagger and a female named Layla. Not much explaining about those names I guess.

    I'm not sure where my daughter came up with Waldo. But it sure does fit him. He is such a Waldo let me tell you.

    It's 5:30 am at my house. Not a problem in the Spring and Summer, but in the winter... it kills me.

    How do the boys get you up?

    At my place it starts with Greta licking my face. Then, if that doesn't do the trick the bed becomes the 5th turn on the 'Kitty Gran Prix'. If the stampede noise doesn't get you, the kitty fly-byes will

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    My dogs wake me up at 6AM-7AM every day! Even on the weekends when we want to sleep in! Buddy sleeps on the bed and D.Bo has his crate but if Buddy doesn't wake us, D.Bo starts his whining, then a bark to say, let me out of here! One Saturday morning, Mike went off to work and it was about 9AM when I realized, I'm still in bed, and haven't heard the dogs. I panicked and went to see what was up...both were sound asleep. Either I slept through the 6AM wake up call or they were just extremely tired this one morning! It was very odd!

    With my guys, wake-up time has more to do with when they had their last potty break the night before. Anything past 10 PM, and I can sleep to the alarm. On weekends, with an 11 PM break, they'll usually let me sleep to 8:30
    How did each of you come up with the names of your pets?
    My boys' names, Bjorn and Gustav, are a nod to my Norse heritage. Their full AKC names also incorporate their kennel name and the pre-Anglicized version of my last name

    It starts with arm licking and progresses into the final turn of the what I call the Catiapolis 500. Sometimes I can just close the bedroom door and they get the hint. However that often leads to scratching the door wanting in.

    With respect to the boys getting me up, Harv, bless his heart, just sleeps in his chair until I arise. With Finley, I had to foresight to train him early. He used to give his almost silent howl and dance all over my torso in an attempt to make me feed him and open the window, but I refused to leave the bed until he settled himself down. So now he just curls into a ball beside me and purrs until I'm ready. If he's really desperate (on a gorgeous spring day, say), he will now keep doing the turn-around-lie-down thing beside me with intermittant stand-up-and-fall-over-on-my-face manoeuvers, all accompanied by ever louder purring and his silent, dilated pupil, inner-hyperventilation look. He's such a little sweetie butt.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Just scratching the door? How nice & peaceful that sounds Unk. When I tired to close the door not wanting to be the 3rd turn in the Catiapolis 500, Mona would sit in the hall and watch her 16 pound brother throw himself at the door.
