(A) Typical Night

On a typical night my husband and I fall asleep on the couch and sometimes around 1 or 2 AM, we wake up and move to the bedroom. Last night was no different, except there were 3 of us sleeping on the couch - my husband, me and Lenny the bichon. Well 3 of us sleeping for a while at least. I was woken up but someone sniffing and licking my back. Ready to yell at my husband, I turned around and, of course, it was Lenny. Maybe he learned the pattern and he was telling us to move to the bedroom. At 2 AM, all 3 of us went to bathroom to brush our teeth (Lenny is very talented) and head to the bedroom. As usual, Lenny positioned himself at the top of of the bed right next to our pillows.

This is us on typical night - in a living room

On those same typical nights I also get awoken numerous times by my husband's snoring (sometimes he even wakes himself up!) Well, on this Saturday, as I was about to fall asleep, I was once again woken up by loud snoring. But this time the snoring was stereo! Not only my husband is snoring, but so too was Lenny! And their snores were synchronized and seemed to be getting louder and louder. I couldn't help but laught out loud which woke my husband who thought I was dreaming.

He fell back asleep and I moved towards the edge of the bed to escape the cacophony. Suddenly, as I was drifting closer towards sleep, I was woken up once again but a funcky burst of air. What's this? Someone farted. Not necessarily an unusual occurence in our household, but could this be? was Lenny! The worst part is was, his butt was basically aimed directly at my face. Ugh! What an awful night!

Eventually the smell dissipated, as did my consiousness. Around 8AM Lenny started making noises again. This is his was of telling us that it is business time (his business time, not the Flight of the Conchord's business time.) I asked my husband to get up and walk him so I could be alone and catch up some sleep. When they got back around 10 AM, I was surprised to find Lenny carrying a rose. My husband followed with a bouquet of daises. How sweet...After keeping me up, the 2 men in my life vindicated themselves.

Two sweet men of my life

As you can see, I was still wearing my robe when they got home :-)


  1. What a beautiful pup! He is so much bigger the my Percy!

  2. Aww cute post! What pretty flowers :)

  3. hello Lenny I am a spoiled wrotten diva!! Looks like you and I have a lot in common...Hope yo come visit me! Your friend!!

  4. Thank you guys. Lenny is adjusting pretty good in this forever home. If you look at him now, you'll never believe that he came from puppy mill, which kept him in cage for 5 years.

  5. That is horrible! I remeber when I lived in the states, or in Spian for that matter, I found sad how they out the puppies in the small glass windows! Here, that is illegal. You buy your dogs directly from the breeders. Should be universal law if you as me!

  6. pretty flowers. I'm glad that your two snoring man brought you home such pretty flowers

  7. Thanks Amy.
    Unfortunately, i only get the flower once and I hear the snoring every night :-D :-D

  8. Awww Lenny is so cute! How funny. My dog snores like a freight train too! Love your flowers!


Thanks for making my day!
