I prefer to wake up slowly. Ideally by snuggling for about 87 minutes. I am particularly fond of Momma's sleepy robe. It is so soft and cuddly.

Other dogs are apparently cracker mental fits even when not fully conscious.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Buddy must be part Mastiff, because he is so much like you Mango, laid back, for sure!
Hoppy Easter to you all!

oh yess, that is the proper way to wake up! Sometimes momma is in a hurry to leave and makes me get up but I usually stop and lie down for a nap at least once or twice on the way to the door! Even though Im a labradog I am not cracker with mental fits though!
p.s. i guess I tricked google into thinking Im a human again!

Love your header picture under the DOGwood tree! Beautiful. We have a slow to rise canine in our house, Miss Panda, she goes beyond your 87 or so minutes and takes the entire morning. Ann

During the week, when mom hazta git up erly to git tu werk, me'n Shasta TRY tu snuggle with mom butt she iz already out of bed so we go on downstairz tu go outside an'take care of bizness. When we come bak in, then we snuggle on our doggy bed. In our furmaliy, Shasta iz uzually the one tu act all cracker dog like - confesshun time - I akchually UZE tu sumtimez BUTT I got older an'wizer. Why waste all that energy I say. Anyway, if it'z the weekend, when mom iz home more then we du snuggle an'cuddle in bed BUTT agin once mom iz woke up an'outta bed then haf tu go downstairz an'then outside. Then bak in an'snuggle wherever we Beaglebratz can find a good snuggle spot.

By the way, we Beaglebratz just may join your WTF Wednesday - livin'with our kerazy mom - thingz that wood fit that topic just seem tu happen ALL of the time. Well it iz time fer my mid-mornin'nap so will stop fer now - there R prioritiez in life.

I'm ALWAYS up for snuggling into my mom for a while. Zim, on the other paw -- or should I say "Drill SGT Zim" likes to get Mom up by 0330 or 4 and start the day. Woo. Not my style!

I like to wake up snuggled close to my Mommy. She is all like "Sashy how are you?" I am all like "Mommy don't bug me now, just be quiet and snuggle" and we do.

Morgan and Sky are like you. They like to sleep late and resist getting up in the morning, but those other dogs... They are just crazy. I don't think some of them sleep at all. I think Samba just paces all night.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I thinking waking up slowly is the best idea. But if you cannot wake up that robe looks like a nice place to roll back over and get in another snooze.
Wishing you the best at Easter time and sending love and cheers across the miles.

Gretchen wants you to know that her routine is VERY similar... but she first has breakfast, then makes Sissy come back to bed too so I can snuggle both of them. Then, when I get up, Dadaw MUST take a turn, whether he likes it or not.

The Mastiff Way is the right way to wake up. Thor always showed up for a hug whenever he woke up, especially first thing in the morning.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I am in LOVE with your new HEADER!!!

I am a big believer in STAYING in the BED.. even AFTER the peeps are up. They HOG it. I didn't get up until 9:55 AM today. Ernie stays in HIS bed until I get up.

I guess you and I are NOT morning kinda guys.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Uncle Mango, it must be an extra large dog thingy. Rory is so lazy, he won't even get out of bed until mum is up. I on the other hand, scratch on the door till someone lets me out so we can all enjoy the day. Mum also has a soft, cuddly sleepy robe but hers needs a wash cause Rory loves to rub his face on it and get his morning goobers off. Ewwwww. Hugs to you Uncle Mango and a hug full of cracker to Dex. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Snuggling in your Mum's robe would be our pick too!

I prefer curling up in bed with Mom, and if I could be served breakfast in bed, that would be ideal!


A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

I used to wake Mom up to feed me, but now I'm happy to lazy around in bed sleeping in and waking up slow.

Mango, what kinda tree is that your sitting under? The flowers on it are pretty.

What a beautiful new header! Glad Spring is finally in full swing for you guys.

We stay in bed until mama is ready to get up, and she is NOT a morning person. But once we're up, we're ready to roll - or more precisely, to potty and eat and then give the yard a thorough inspection.

Two very different styles!
Hmmm... I guess I am like you Mango!

Slow and steady is the best way to wake up! :)

Mango and Dex both have the cutest sleepy faces!

Chester said...

Oh man, Mango Mom! There's nothing better than having a furry child sleeping on your lap - I always say. But, I bet that Relentlessly Huge head of Mango's would make even a relentlessly old thigh like mine go to sleep!

What a sweet pic of him! ♥

PS - I have the "cracker mental fits before even fully awake" kind of doggeh too - accompanied by LOUD yawns!
