By summer 2017, all of Jamie’s issues were winding down. The daily “poop fest” was a rarity, his barking was close to average for any dog, the circles had disappeared!!!! Yeah!!!! Some nights he was sleeping all night, ………………Mama got zzzzzzz! Then something new happened.
Jamie, like clockwork, would wake at 2 am and cry to go out. I would get up and take him out, only for him to walk to the farthest part of the yard and sit down. His nose would reach up to the sky and he would just sit and smell the crisp air. He actually was beautiful and he so very much enjoyed it. Only problem was, it was 2 am and I needed to sleep. It was a simple pleasure for him. I let it go on for awhile, but realized it needed to stop, I needed sleep to get through my day. So, every night when he did this, I would march across the yard and bring him in not letting him stay even one minute.
I am now “allowed” to sleep 7 hours. James, aka: Jamie, wakes up after 7 hours. If I go to bed at 11 pm, he wakes me at 6 am. If I go to bed at 11:30 pm, he wakes me at 6:30 am. I really have no clue how he knows………….
More about the precious lad next time.
