Once summer is officially here I have a routine of opening the side porch door in the morning. It provides cross ventilation and gives the dogs a spot to enjoy the air without being tied outside. Every morning Nicki's first thing to do is select a bone from her toy box and trot on out to the porch. She sits and watches the neighborhood (or what she can see of it) from her spot on the porch.
Another little morning routine that both dogs engage in is the stretch. They stretch out like this several times while I get busy getting their breakfast.
By far the most adorable pose Nicki has in her repertoire is this 'bone in my mouth' pose that she does so often. Look at that face!!!
