mornings with mina and celeste

Every morning, when I leave the bed, Mina curls up in my spot. Celeste, knowing Mina loves to have her nose covered, promptly sits on her head. Isn't that sweet?

Kisses to the sleepy head.

I love my dogs personality differences. Mina likes to sleep-in. When I get up, she goes right back to bed. Celeste would prefer getting up early. Before my alarm goes off, she'll sit and stare until she gives up and heaves herself to the foot of the bed. Then, when I am up, she curl up next to Mina but keep a close eye on me. Just in case, ya know, anything fascinating happens.

Do they both sleep in your room with you? Are they both able to wander freely through the rest of the house? How's housetraining going with Celeste?

What's funny is these questions only now occur to me as I'm feeling my way through what liberties Dexter can have at this point.

P.S. I love your pillow case.

Yep, they both sleep in my room, on the bed (honestly, I think Celeste would prefer the floor). My apartment is pretty small - there's only one bedroom, living room and kitchen. So they do have free range. When I'm at my parent's much larger home, they also have free range. I stopped leashing Celeste at my parent's house a couple weeks ago. I keep a crate with my parents as backup.

Celeste is 90-95% housetrained - she's only had two accidents in the past month, and those were due to me being unable to come home at lunch. When I'm home, she'll politely sit by the door until I notice, unlike a certain patchy-eyed canine who arrooos to me when she' needs to pee. I don't expect Celeste to be 100% housetrained (i.e. can handle me being gone all day, if it comes to that) until she's between 9-12 months old. I don't know if that's reasonable or not, but that's just what I feel is reasonable for Celeste.

I heart my sheet and pillow case designs. They make me happy. It doesn't take much. :)

As soon as I think I can trust Dexter with night-time freedom he will be sleeping in the bed with me. (I wasn't going to do this because Ravi didn't like the idea. Now he's going, "When can he sleep with us?" Hahaha.) I hope he's not a bed hog like the cats. I must be crazy to look forward to finding out. e.e

How did you know when Celeste was ready to have freedom of the big house?

Mina and Celeste are contact-whores. They seem to feel a strong desire to snuggle every night. It's to the point I'm tempted to kick them off the bed. But then I would not be able to post the above cute pictures. :)

There wasn't really an a-ha moment that told me Celeste was ready. We did trials of her being loose with us in one room, in a couple rooms and then in the whole house. We puppy proofed as much as we could (though she STILL finds all the paper towels, heh). She spends most of her time with Mina and Mina's easy to monitor. Though one of the big reasons I felt comfortable was her increased reliability with her recall.

Aw, Dawkins would like to order one of those sweet little Celeste nose warmers.

Mina says she wouldn't mind loaning Celeste out. :)
