I don't know how many of you have pets. But if you do, it's funny the things you learn about them. For instance, we all know that some people are morning people and others are not. But what I didn't know is that the same can be said of dogs and cats. With Tessa the Mastiff and George the cat around, I have no need for an alarm clock. Every morning, without fail, they are up and raring to go by 6 am. And, being the helpful little ones they are, they make sure that I am as well....even on weekends and holidays! Now Buster the dog, he's a completely different story. He tends to view all this morning activity as, well, a load of crap. Oh he might stumble out to take care of business while Tessa and I water the plants, but he makes no pretense of being happy about it. Just as soon as he can be, he's back inside on his bed and sleeping soundly until at least 9 or 10. It's funny how their personalities differ.
