Cricket decided it was a good day to sleep in and wouldn’t wake up. As I whipped them up, she lay on the couch snoring away, and acting like it was a lazy Sunday morning. Just for laughs here’s a shot of the lazy pup:

Once the pancakes were ready she was up and out of bed and begging at my side. She loves to “paw” me repeatedly just so I know for sure she is there and wanting some of what I’m having. Haha. I swear she thinks she’s human!
