Today started as a normal day. I got up with the dog barking. Jasmine, the newfoundland, has taken to barking first thing in the morning because she's hungry. Its not a great sound to wake up to. She is better than an alarm though. Her stomache says when it is 6:30 a.m. I hate waking up to her barking but at the same time its the best thing for the family.
It benefits us in several ways. The kids know they need to get up. So since the dog is barking that means she wants food. The kids are responsible for feeding the dogs. Its one of their little jobs. They feel very important and the dogs get fed.
