I’ve never understood why schools think bulldogs make good mascots. What are they trying to say to the competition? “Our underbites and top-heavy bodies make us look menacing, but when push comes to shove, we get tired quickly, we’re incredibly lazy, we absolutely CAN NOT – under any circumstances – play in the heat, and our claim to athletic fame is our ability to balance on a skateboard.”
Schools with bulldog mascots clearly don’t know know my bulldog Rosie’s sleep cycle. My husband and I get such a kick out of our couch potato, so I thought I’d give you a look at a typical Day In The Life of Rosie!
9:15 am (on the dot): The day gets off to a semi-active start. Rosie scratches on my bedroom door then bounces around until I take her out for a potty break.
9:30 am: More bounding around the house until I feed her breakfast.
10:00 am: Post-breakfast nap on the couch or on the floor while I read work e-mails, check Twitter, and watch Wendy Williams.
10:00 am to 2:00 pm: The post-breakfast nap usually bleeds into an early afternoon power nap (unless I break up the two by taking her on a quick trip to Starbucks with me).
2:00 pm: Potty break and a walk
2:15 – 6:00 pm: Post-potty break nap #1, which can also bleed into a mid-day power nap (with occasional trips to the water bowl or to see what I’m up to on my days off)
6:00 pm: Potty break/treat break
6:15 pm – 7:30 pm: Post-potty break nap #2. Dad comes home at 7:30 and rouses her from her peaceful slumber.
10:00 pm: Dinner & more scratches
10:15 pm – 11:45: Post-dinner/scratching nap
11:45 pm: Final potty break
12:30 am: Bed Time
