My dogs do something my child never did. They take regular naps, and not only that, they enjoy them. There is something so soothing about a sleeping child or a snoozing dog. I'm wide awake, and working but somehow their gentle, relaxed energy is being transmitted to me.
My dogs aren't fussy about nap arrangements. I'm welcome to join them, but if I opt out, they continue on without me. I love the somewhat windy chorus of snores and farts that come floating out of the room....Dogs rule!
