Our 4 month old puppy, Sammie, is growing like crazy. Right now she is all legs. And in the morning, life is all about her! We call it "30 minutes of me", Sam-Me to be exact. As we get up, she greets each of us like a little kid on Christmas morning. Here she eagerly awaits the boys to come downstairs for petting and playing.
My husband puts in the majority of "me" time since he is the first one up. And then we all share in the rest. It's hard not to be happy in the morning with Sammie around.
