Sleep Deprivation and Doggie Depression

Sleep deprivation can be a funny thing (unless you are my dog). I just looked down and realized after being awake for over four hours and - here's the key- after half a latte - that my tops and bottoms to my pjs don't match. It really doesn't matter if they match or not as I'm just sitting on my couch hanging out with my favorite baby but it's a little disturbing that I didn't notice until now.

I also tend to forget my poor dog outside. He's not an outdoor dog and is sure to remind me of this after he's been left outside for awhile with a whine or a bark. Poor guy. His mom's heads not in the game anymore and what little brain capacity is left is being dedicated to caring for Nora.

I think the dog is getting depressed. He doesn't come very quickly when we call him and he spent a good portion of the morning hanging out in his kennel and had to be coaxed out this morning to go to the bathroom. He's been our fur kid for six years so it's no wonder he's having a hard time. Poor guy. Probably nothing a long walk later today can't cure.


  1. He'll come around.. no worries!

    A month ago, Nantie had taken Sunshine and Mannie to an appt. About 1/2 way thru she realized she still had her jammie top on. It was cute but did say, "Nighty Night" on it..


  2. oh my goodness--poor doggie---He is so adorable. LOL!!! I was in my pj's unil 2:00 yesterday--not like me but I am enjoying every minute and I know you are too.

  3. Hey Jen, would you email me? I have a question for you and I don't want to spout it over the open internet...kelcathcart425@gmail.com

    Thank you.

  4. Poor puppy...but he will be fine! My two have adjusted nicely, although they still seem to enjoy very rambunctious running fits right at Charlie's bed time, hmmmmm!

    Hang in there with the sleep deprivation thing, it does get better...or at least you get more used to it!
