Good Morning Viet Dog!


What’s the best part of waking up? For some its Foldgers in your cup. that would never happen in this household with coffee snobbery. I hear some mornings, “Good morning Viet Dog.” Mom said she remembers watching a movie where Robin Williams did the radio broadcasting starting out with “Good morning vietnam.”i wake up around 7:15am to go potty, then beg for dinner and then do my morning snuggle with mom for 20 min.  I’m an independent  kind of guy so I choose to snuggle routinely in the morning. My routine every morning: human leans over and kisses me (she knows i hate that!) and tells me her usual mantra “Jesus loves you more than we can understand on this side of heaven”, “Heaven is your true home,” “Jesus is your true parent.”  I know that when she says these reminders that it both comforts her heart and stings. She knows in her heart that what she loves most is not truly hers and one day will go away. The Creator loves what we love even more than we do. The best part of our day in this household is the morning…family time snuggles, drinking tea in bed, and me getting kisses. I hope you make your day Pawsome every morning! For some they wake up thinking about what all they have to do that day…I know I struggle with that too… I need to seal watch, go to Three Dog Bakery, walk a few miles, poop, beg for poke, and yes the list goes on! But what would it be like to wake up and be present to those you love and bless them and bless yourself…rather than first thinking about what you need to do, but simply kiss your dawg good morning?
