Sleeping in

Trooper's happy face

"Sleeping in" around here means staying in bed until 7:00 a.m.  It's a fairly rare occurrence but it happened this morning because: (1) Vince didn't need to pee; and (2) it was cloudy.

Whenever this spot is open, Vince comes up
to my side of the bed for some petting.
Vince's preferred sleeping spot, the bed on my side of the room.

Max, Maya, and I hiked 8 miles yesterday and 7 miles the
day before. He was tired last night, calm at last.
Gigi is never the first dog to get up.
Gigi makes an effort fold up her legs so she's a small dog
in bed, sometimes more successfully than others.
Trooper is actually our best snuggler, but he needs space so
he doesn't persist in to for too long.

Maya will generally jump into bed at the first signs of us being
awake, but she was tired this morning too.

Theo's head at the side of the bed is difficult to ignore.
Theo is ready to get up and go whenever everyone else does
but he's never the first to suggest or insist upon it.

Vince and Maya, competing for the free hand.

Maya always insists on being the closest to me.

When Gigi stands, everyone gets up. It signals that bed time
is over and it's time to get up.
