I have a dog and he needs a walk. He is ready to greet the day a bit before I am. He nudges me, if I need it, with a wet nose in my face.
I tumble out of bed, into dog walking clothes, and out the door with him. It is still dark so I turn on his blinker collar and take the leash with the built in flashlight. By the time we are out for 5 minutes I am really waking up.
The air was crisp and clean this morning and the rain had not yet started. I started my car and let it warm up and melt the ice on the windshield while we walked. Everything looked different with the coating of snow. I had to watch for black ice but it was still a great walk.
We got back to the house in 15 minutes and then I got ready for work.
I recommend to EVERYONE a dog that needs a walk.

I agree. When my son needed to stay with us, his work schedule didn't always allow for him to walk the dog, so it became my job. After a few weeks, the dog decided he preferred for me to walk him, and even slept as close to my bed as he could. As soon as I started stirring, even before I was fully awake, he was ready for his walk and let me know if I took too long getting out of bed. We would walk a half-hour to 45 minutes (others in the household would make it a 15-20 minute walk, which is probably why he preferred that I walk him), and it was a great way to start the day. Unfortunately, now that my son has moved into his own house, and we do quite a bit of traveling through the year, we don't have a pet to wake us, and feel it would be unfair to have a pet, knowing we'd have to leave it for sometimes 2 weeks at a time.
