Corgadors at Dawn

My ma ape is back to teaching which means no more sleeping in or lazy mornings. No, I have to get up BEFORE the dawn cracks which means I have to catch my Zs where I can get them. I sometimes even have to make my own bed. With the clean laundry and the tipped over laundry basket. Sweet.

And we have to go for walkies and playtime EARLY. Walkies are for weekdays in the dark. On the weekend is playtime at dawn!

In the morning sun the peppy sheppys look almost dignified.

It does not last long.

I keep my dignity.


At ALL times. Dignified.


See the sun rise!


I wrote a haiku

Sun rises slowly
Corgador slouches toward dawn
Big head for big dreams

So get yourself to my bloggy and vote for yourself in Herding now.

Listen! I like to sleep in too, but that labradork gets up at 5AM and forces me to eat breakfast with him in the dark. Jeez!

Khorgadors at dawn
Wet feet on the lawn

Khorgadors at night
Poo by moonlight

Oh Wally, I'm a bit sad that my mom can't marry your onkel so we could be cousins, but maybe having a corgi next door will be almost as good as a Corgador.

Oh, and I know you aren't a Westminster fan, but I think you'd like the dude who won -- a Sussex Spaniel named Stump. He has the cutest little legs ever.

Woober!

I thought it was going to be one of those epic poems when I saw the post title, "Corgadors at Dawn"! Still, the haiku is very nice!

Goob love to the ma ape & the sheppies!

Goober love,
Stanley

Nice haiku you penned Wally. We don't understand it but it is nice. Maybe you should throw some food references in otherwise it sounds like something apes read at those bookstores when they have 'open mike' night. Remember, you can never mention kibble too much in a poem.

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Wow you do get up early! I want to get up early too but my Mommy re-fuses to get out of bed before 7:50. So I have to stand at the front door and ring my bell so she wakes up. She is so stubborn.
That sunrise must be pretty peaceful to watch. So peaceful, in fact, that it inspires haikus! I wish I could write one like you.

I have known some dogs that are early risers by nature. Thank goodness Moose is not one of them either. Lovely haiku, you should totally win Mango Minster with your talent!

It looks like a beautiful time of day and Jazzi likes to be up that early. The humans don't!
