I believe I am blessed and cursed all at the same time. I have very sensitive ears, I could be asleep and many times I can still hear everything that is going on around me, and sleeping with dogs that snore is quite a challenge, but I’d hate to be without them.
To be quite honest I never knew that a dog can snore, dream and even bark while asleep until this beautiful pit bull, Kingston, walked into our lives. Alex is very quite. She does not snore, all right, all right, I’ll come clean, she does, but that is only when she eats a big meal, and only on certain occasions I’ve heard her growl at God only knows what. Anyway, one night I was reading in bed and I hear “someone” snoring, then barking so my first reaction was to look at Alex, but she was sound asleep. Then, I looked at Kingston, and he was the “someone” snoring. Not only was he snoring, but he was having a very vivid dream because he snored, and barked loud enough to wake up Alex. I just laughed because Alex looked at me as if saying, “Mom, you’ve got to be kidding me. He not only snores loud, but barks as well while asleep. How come he does not bark when he is awake?”. Now, that I found very interesting. He does not bark during the day time. He only does it when he is playing with Alex, he is trying to get her to play with him, and when he wants the nylabone she has at that moment. I have nylabones all over the house, but the one he wants, yes, you guessed right, is the one Alex is chewing on. They are quite an interesting pair.
I am blessed because I have them in my life and for that I’ll always be grateful, and I am cursed because now I have sensitive ears and this beautiful pit bull snores. Oh well, I think is a small price to pay for having him in my life. Where are my ear plugs?
