When I turned the 52 inch flatscreen TV at the foot of my bed 180 degrees around so he can see it from his playpen while I'm away during the day. It is now his TV because I can no longer see it from my bed or from my bathroom while I'm getting ready in the mornings.
When I turn that TV on to the Nickelodeon kids station (it must be Nickelodeon! not Animal Planet nor Disney) when i leave so he can watch Nick Jr.

Same here! Except I always start out in the morning with the Disney Channel. When I come home for lunch she gets out to stretch her legs a bit and when she goes back in the crate for the afternoon, I switch it to Sesame Street. The TV has to be angeled just right so she can see it from the crate!
And, yes, I love to travel but I feel so guilty leaving her behind. Luckily, my oldest son & his family watch her when I go away. They have a very nice, fenced-in back yard and she gets to play with cousin, Max, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. (such a big name for such a small dog!)

When you are running a fever of 102 and so sick you can hardly make it to the restroom, but I hear Fallen walking around in his crate at 2:00 am and I get up to let him out and wait for him sitting in a chair until he finished doing his business put him back in his crate and then collapse on the coach because I can't make it back to the bedroom. LOL that happened in February of this year

When you get up 1 hour earlier than need to dog walk. You go to the store and all the meat you buy is for your spoos. All gifts are somehow related to things you need for your dogs. No vacations, that don't include taking dogs. And you are known as "The Crazy Poodle Woman..."
I said no to a free/all inclusive trip to Europe, cause my baby Lou was 5 months old and I thought I could not be away from her for an entire month in such a critical developmental part of her life. I dont regret it! Is that odd? I probably would still say no today! (she is 9 months old) All my friends were like: "can I take your place? I'll go!!" LOL
I also have never left her unattended/unsupervised unless for a couple hours in her crate while i ran an errand or something. I'm slowly starting to let hear roam by herself a bit around the house now.. and the house is puppy-proofed daily! Ok ok... now I sound nuts... LOL I overdo it just a little bit... I know... But she is my baby!! <3
Ps. I just moved (2 weeks ago) to a house with a HUGE yard, strictly for her enjoyment! I had no other reason to move... :-D Husband sends me to the store to get coffee, I come back with treats for Lou and no coffee!
Apollo & Lou - my perfect wonderful spectacular magnificent poodles!!!!

When I get up from what I'm doing to get her what she wants.
hahahah! I thought about this today! Lou is hitting adolescence is she has been soooooooooo spoiled that I am making myself ignore her demands sometimes so she knows that I'm still the boss! (I mean, I'm still your mother and you live under my roof, type of thing! LOL)

I work nights and attempt to sleep during the day. I have moved my bed so that I can toss squeaky toys down the hallway for Bug. He wants to play fetch and tug for 30-40 mintues before he is ready to dig my blankie off of me and snuggle down for a nap. *sigh*
I wouldn't have it any other way, either.
