when not instigating a play session, or devoting himself to be my trusty sidekick on any outing, pup ernie dedicates himself to the joy of naps. from a couple minutes to epic snooze fests with paw twitchy and muffled bark dreams, he always wakes stretchy and with a big smile and wag. on the best days, i tuck in for a snack-sized puppy nap as well. naps are magic. the world is different when we wake. even 20 minutes in the land of nod can transform our feeling about the day and fill our cup with joy.
while i'm running the atlanta half marathon this sunday early morning, i know where ernie will be!
