Favorite Video Friday – Crusoe’s Morning Routine


Today is the first day of my 11-day vacation (well, technically, 7 working days, but I count weekends too. Don’t you?).

I had decided to sleep in this morning, but Jasper had other plans. Whenever I sleep past 5 am, Jasper jumps up on my bed and lays down beside me and paws my hand. He insists on a belly rub before we get up and get moving for the morning.

As I scratched his belly this morning (at 5:30 am), I started thinking about our morning routine. I’ve probably shared a little bit of our morning routine before, but probably not the details.

This is literally our daily routine (unless i get up exactly at 5 am):

  • Jasper jumps on the bed and insists on his morning belly rub.
  • Foster Maggie runs in and out of my bedroom excitedly, wagging her tail the whole time (that last part is new!).
  • I swing my legs over the edge of the bed as Jasper jumps down. Then, Maggie runs in and we do butt scratches (for her and Jasper).
  • I walk into the living room, where Daisy is lounging on the couch, and give her a few scritches.
  • I let Jasper and Maggie out.
  • I go back and give Daisy her morning belly rub (she absolutely refuses to go outside in the morning until she has had her morning belly rub).
  • I let Daisy outside and start preparing Kongs for the day.
  • Daisy bursts into the house (she can open the door if it is not locked), followed by Jasper, and eventually, Maggie.
  • Jasper stations himself in the kitchen to supervise the Kong making (you never know when a stray piece of kibble will hit the floor), and Maggie watches from the wings.
  • Kongs are placed in the freezer (to freeze their yogurt topping) and then it’s time for breakfast for me.
  • While I eat my breakfast, Daisy, Jasper and Maggie watch me, like adoring fans.

Crazy huh?

It seems so much more complex than Crusoe’s routine, as featured in this week’s Favorite Friday Video. 🙂

So, what’s your morning routine with your dog(s)? I’d love to know if my routine is as crazy as everyone else. Please share.

Happy Friday everyone!

    Your routine certainly gives you lots of company. By comparison, I’m very lonely when I get up at 4:30 or 5. I swear Honey would bite me if I tried to rub her belly when she’s getting her morning beauty sleep.

      Daisy would not bite, but she prefers to sleep in, or at the very least, get in some cuddle time before she gets up for her day. 😀
