Blissful Sleep

Sleep should never be taken for granted! Because when you don't get enough, it can effect your whole outlook on things. One of my litters of pups has had 3 rowdy nights in a row and it is wearing on us. Tonight I will be taking them for a long vigourous hike before bed to help tire them out to try and make it through the night.I was reminded today by a stranger that this too shall pass and they will grow out of this stage, but at 3 in the morning, with pillows over our heads, patience is challenging. Come morning (at a decent hour)their adorable faces melt away the thoughts of frustration from a disturbed sleep and we move on with the day...while they experience blissful sleep positions like this one!!
