One of the things I am most looking forward to in the future is waking up next to my wife. I have woke up alone for over 30 years and look forward to little companionship right away each day. I have dogs but they aren't in a big hurry to get out of bed and see me off.

I have a big Standard Poodle named Dante who sleeps with us every night. We try to sneak in the bed before he sees us otherwise he plops down on the bed and you cannot move him. If he lands on your side, you have to find a way to squeeze into the space next to him. We will turn off the light and try to dive into the bed before he comes pouncing in. I love this guy so much but this is the vision I have each morning as I arise.

I guess it is a pretty decent way to start a day. He is so darn cute and sweet but I must say I am looking forward to seeing my wife's face instead.

Here is my buddy ready to pull Santa's sleigh. Merry Christmas from my home to yours.
