When a “day in the life” was announced as week 13’s theme for the Pet Photography 52 Weeks blog circle, I couldn’t wait! I’d been wanting to dogument a day in Hunter’s world for some time now, but never got around to it. So, without further ado, I give you a day in the life of Hunter.
5:25 a.m.: Wow, sleeping in today, Hunter! It’s usually closer to 4:20 a.m. when my four-legged alarm clock jingles his collar tags or shakes his head so that his floppy ears make enough noise to wake me. Outside we go!
7:15 a.m.: It’s time for the usual morning nap. Sure, it may seem early for a nap, but what do you expect when he’s up before the sun? Every. Single. Day. That routine is made all the more fun when Daylight Saving Time kicks in. I swear this boy can tell the time. He’s up at almost the exact same time every morning.
9:45 a.m.: Despite a foggy, rainy morning, Hunter had to go outside. While you think he’d just go out and do his business, he is a happy wanderer. We often think he pretends he has to go outside to the bathroom just so he can come in and get a treat, a bad habit I’ll admit that I started when he was just a wee puppy.
Once he realized he was getting wet though, it was a sprint back to the house.
3:30 p.m.: I went out to check on our chickens and came back inside with 40 eggs! Of course, the little “eggspector” had to check ’em out. (He gives them two paws up!)
7:30 p.m.: It’s time for evening playtime while I try to wrap up a few freelance writing assignments. Hunter loves to shove his toys on my lap while I work and nudge them so that they squeak as if to say, “Enough computer work, Mom. Let’s play!” (I’m not kidding when I say he thinks he’s the boss around here.)
American novelist Jonathan Safran Foer once posed the question, “Why does watching a dog be a dog fill one with happiness?” I’m not sure if anyone can ever truly pinpoint exactly why, but I will wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment.
