Guest Fruitloop Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 It's just me, Fruity and the BF and since I go to work when it's still dark outside he normally gets to do the morning walk and serve breakfast. For the last 2 months on our sleep-in-late (that's 7am for me) weekends Fruity whines loudly the very moment I show signs of consciousness. Since we are still new at this I've always thought she was saying, "It's about time one of you got up! I've got to go outside PRONTO!!" So every weekend I've been frantically stumbling out of bed, running to open the dog door and then to open the back patio door just in case. When she ends up staring at me (almost always) as I gesture "outside?" I just get dressed and take her for a walk and go on with the "morning protocol". She's only really needed to go out once. This morning I was scheduled to work late and when she did the whole whine routine again I just wasn't ready to move fast and ended up sitting on the edge of the bed gathering my wits. It was then that Fruity, with a great big wagging tail, climbed up and smushed her head into my lap...with GUSTO...and then she slid off onto the floor and roached. What. A. Goofball. It dawned upon me that she might just be whining because she's happy to see me. Happy whining? It sounds the same as unhappy whining (like when I decide I want some alone time in the bathroom)...but maybe louder. I always thought whining=discomfort of some sort. What do you guys think?
