Don't hate me because...

I'm a heavy sleeper.

Okay....we're dealing with a sick pup again. Morey has a history of digestive issues. About two years ago we went through a nasty bout of pancreatitis with him. Luckily we weren't close to losing him, but it was still pretty scary. Through that experience we learned that male schnauzers are much more susceptible to pancreatitis than females...go figure. It is true of ours....Leah can eat anything and come out of it fine. Morey, not so much.

Well, he's gotten into something and hasn't been "right" all weekend. What was a Saturday filled with heinously smelly and moderately obscene farts turned into a Sunday filled with more farts and vomiting in obscure locations in our bedroom. Let's just say, the vomit was as offending to the nostrils as the farts. OH MY!!!!

Well, Morey apparently got up about three times in the span of 30 min between 11:15pm and 11:45pm and I never even knew. Apparently Shooter took him out three times to expel his demons and I still slept soundly in the bed. This didn't go over too well with him. He came back in after the third episode and tried to wake me up. He then proceeded to have a partially coherent conversation with me where apparently my ability to sleep soundly (thank you new pillow) was just not fair. You see...today is President's day and I am off of work today. Shooter, unfortunately, had to be up and at work this morning at 5am. Ooops.

So, I'm sorry I'm a heavy sleeper....really....I blame the new pillows, honey.

Sorry to hear about your pup. Enjoy your day off though.

Okay, I'm not one to throw around "I hate you"s, but OMG I'm BLUE with jealousy. I'm the lightest FREAKING sleeper in the world. Good for you! I woke up on my sleeping in day today (AGAIN) at an obscene hour because apparently the neighbor's car won't stay on unless the REVVVvvv the engine a BILLION times. The wirrrr of my fan wasn't enough to drown it out. That's how light of a sleeper I am. :(

My husband nearly always heard the kids before I did - once I am asleep the dead envy me, so soundly do I slumber. My hub, not so much :) Hope the pup is better soon.

Ya know...it's weird, cause sometimes I'm a light sleeper and sometimes I just can't be awakened for anything.

Pup is better so far today. Apparently the demons were properly excised yesterday as he's very playful and quite back to himself today. I think he'll get a small portion of food tonight and see how he handles it. Thanks for asking about him!

Now that Big Daddy is home every night, I sleep like a baby, which means he as dog duty. Oh well, I'll get my turn when he goes back to sea.

I sleep so much heavier when my husband is home because I slip into REMs and then death. I hear nothing. However, on the night he travels and is gone several nights in a row, I hear things from the next town over. It freaks me out. I'm thinking tax returns may have to be earmarked for one of those new pillows!

Oh, and I love schnauzers! I had them growing up, and if we can ever get a dog now, I've put my request in for one. Hope things got better!

y'know, for the poos canned pumpkin (not pie filling) works miracles. dunno if that'll help or not.

As I'm reading this my lovely Mocha is farting on my hubs. Hee hee.
Unfortunately for me, I'm the light sleeper. If a train comes thru our bedroom, Andy would wake up hours later wondering why our house had a whole in it.

I feel your pain...I woke up at 4:00 AM to Riley projectiling across the bedroom.

Who knew a cat could get more than four feet with throw up !

I laughed at this because my boyfriend is the one who gets up in the middle of the night to let our dog out... I either sleep through it or pretend I don't hear it until he gets up. Oops... did I just admit that? *Evil Laugh*

Hopefully the little kid feels better soon and its not pancreatitis. Schnauzers do have touchy stomachs. Poor little guy.
