A Day in the Life of Roxy Belle

6:30 a.m. - Go outside - pee

6:45 a.m. - Eat

7:15 a.m. - Jump up on chairs Belle children have left pushed out from breakfast table and lick leftover breakfast crumbs off table until Mama Belle catches me

7:30 a.m. - Look pitiful as Belle children and Papa Beau leave

7:30 a.m. - Bark incessantly at girl that stands outside the front of our house to wait for bus, despite Mama Belle's urging to hush up

8:15 a.m. - Look pitiful once again as Mama Belle leaves

8:16 a.m. - Lay in chair & sleep
Between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. - Be waiting anxiously at door for family to arrive - pee again and maybe even more - have Belle children play fetch with me

6:00 p.m. - Sit under dining room table as Belle family eats and hope once again that one of the children will not push her chair in again for the chance of more crumbs

7:30 p.m. - Pee

8:00 p.m. - Lay in bed & sleep, with intermittent attempts to be petted, as well as unsuccessful attempts to get on the couch
Between 10:30 & 11:00 p.m. - Pee & apprehensively (and by apprehensively, I mean walk at a turtle's pace, while longingly gazing into my parents' eyes, hoping they might let me sleep in the big bed) get in kennel for the night

My life is exhausting. Today was even more exhausting due to my day at the doggie spa. Sheesh. Pampering makes me even more tired.

What a little cutie. If she were my dog I'd get nothing done all day because I'd be petting her all day long.

Poor Roxy Belle. She has SUCH a rough life and to think you made her go to the spa today. I'm thinking the big bed tonight just to make up for all the stress!

She makes me wish I were a dog...at least for a few days. I could use the rest... :)
