Sleep Bolted

Heart is working out very well for us. She is a lovable sweet dog that relishes any attention we give her. She is getting more and more confident while outside and that is very good to see. Heart is even starting to spend less time right by our side, which to me indicates she is feeling more comfortable in “her” house.

Some nights she even does not sleep in our bedroom, which is pretty nice.

Last night though, Heart did sleep in our bedroom.

Recently Amy has had trouble sleeping through the night which has made Sue and I very tired. Amy yells out for us to help her put her Bopp (blanket) back on. We’re working to get her to do it herself.

Amazingly, last night Amy did not call for us. Sleeping soundly I was rudely awakened when Heart got up and started making those horrible dog puking noises at 4:20 am. I bolted out of bed and tried to convince her to get outside. She puked a little in our room, then made her way downstairs and out the front door.

I waited outside with her only wearing a pair of pajama pants, while she puked a couple more times. Tired, cold, and wide awake I cleaned up the mess in our room, then climbed back into bed. A little over an hour later I finally got back to sleep.

What should have been a good sleep, wasn’t.
