How to be a Rottweiler for a Day?

My sweet rottie Ella. I try to maintain a busy schedule for her during the day. If we don't have class - we go for a walk. She hasn't been regularly crated since she's been 6 months old.

6:30-6:45am Lazily wake up. Roll over for a morning belly rub.

6:45am Get yelled at for following mom into the bathroom.

6:50am Wake up daddy with sloppy kisses. "Complain" about how mean mom was.

6:55am Go back to the bathroom door. Sigh heavily. Wait by the door practicing "life's unfair" look.

7:00am Wag your stubby tail, because neither the sink, nor the toilet has swallowed up your mom. She's alive!

7:05am Go out for a potty break, walk around the garden with mom. Attempt to chew on roses. Attempt to chew on peas. Attempt to chew on weeds. Complain when not allowed.

7:10am Go back inside for breakfast. Be a good girl, and sit very still when mom fills up the bowl with Canidae. Stare at mom with all the love in the world when she opens up a can of sardines to add to your bowl of food. Have your breakfast.

7:20am Wait for mom to finish morning coffee. Chew on a squicky toy, to make sure everyone is awake in the house.

7:30am Leave with mom to go to doggy daycare. Pass gas in the car. Look out the window, pretending you didn't do it.

7:45am Arrive to daycare and gather up luvs from everyone who works there.

7:45am - 4:00pm Play, sleep, play, sleep, play, sleep, play sleep, play.

4:00pm Get picked up. Gobble up the treat. Pass out in the back seat on the way home.

4:15pm Listen to mom preaching about the benefits of resting in a cool house, vs. a hot car. Agree that inside is better, and crawl out of the car. Quick potty break.

4:15-5:45pm Enjoy a delicious nap.

5:45pm Wake up to the sound of mom chopping up the treats for class. Get excited.

6:00pm Arrive to class.

6:00-7:00pm Enjoy every bit of a yummy hotdog that comes your way. Pick up every treat (and anything that looks like it could be a treat) dropped accidentally on the ground, and missed by your classmates. Be perfect Rottweiler self and show off.

7:00pm Go home tired. Insist you don't have to go potty.

7:15pm Look suspiciously at the dinner bowl. Complain it has no sardines. Finish it up anyway.

7:20pm When daddy gets home, act as if he just got back from a year long trip. Lick, wag, roll over, look happy,

7:30pm Make rounds - check on everyone in the house, make sure everyone is home and still loves you.

7:30-8:00pm Watch mom making dinner. Interrupt by insisting you HAVE TO GO POTTY. Don't take too long outside, just long enough for the rice to burn.

8:00pm Watch everyone enjoying their dinner, while chewing on a marrow bone.

8:30pm Go with mom to the bedroom, and read before sleep.

9:00pm Lights out. Pass gas.
