Maddie’s Morning Routine

by Meghann on August 9, 2012

Maddie left me this morning.

Generally I get up, take Maddie out, put her back in bed with Derek before I head out for my run, then take her back out when I’m done with my run. Generally by that time Derek is up and on his way out the door to the office. Maddie gets breakfast after her second walk, then proceeds to pass out on her bed or the couch for the next few hours.

Derek is working a later shift this week, so our routine is a little different. When I returned from my run to take Maddie out, I opened the door to our bedroom and found Maddie and Derek still sleeping. Maddie lifted her head, but didn’t look like she didn’t want to be bothered. I called for her and, after she took the time to yawn and stretch, she came to the door and we went outside. I made her breakfast when we returned (which she ate), but then she proceeded to take up camp in front of the bedroom door, gently nudging it with her head. She knew Derek was still in there sleeping and she wanted to join him.

I opened the door and she pranced in, looked around, then immediately curled up next to Derek on the bed before giving me a look that read “you can go now.”

What a traitor. I don’t blame her, I wouldn’t mind climbing back in the comfy bed either. :p

While Maddie was getting her beauty rest, I had a pleasant 5 mile run. When I returned, I made a good ole bowl of oatmeal.


In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • raisins

On top:

  • granola
  • peanut butter
  • strawberries
  • walnuts


Lots of strawberries. I finished off the rest of the container. :)

Do you and your pet have a regular morning routine?
