How late should you let your dog sleep in?

Nash and I went for his final bathroom walk earlier than usual last night, as for a change, I was actually tired. We got back to the apartment at about 11:15, and I thought I would watch some tv before bed, so I moved Nash’s bed next to the couch, so he could also relax. I ended up falling asleep on the couch, which is very rare for me, one to actually fall asleep, and two to fall asleep that early, so of course, I have been up since 3am. I have been getting some stuff done on the computer, and watching a little tv, as Nash still snoozes away in his bed. Lucky guy to get such a great night sleep, and look so comfy. We normally get up between 9 and 10 am, then I feed and walk Nash. So now, I am at a loss, as I have been ready for hours to walk and feed Nash, and get my day going, as I plan to get some coffee and a bagel, but I do not want to throw Nash off his schedule, so I am wondering what is the polite and proper thing to do. How long do I let Nash sleep in? Funny, I never thought I would be asking that question. I am actually getting really hungary, and I feel like I am a kid again on Christmas morning, and I am not even Christian, but for some reason that morning was always very exciting, and I couldn’t wait for my parents to get up. Amazing how as a kid, you can’t wait to get out of bed, and as an adult, it is always, just fuve more minutes please, just five more minutes. I guess I will let Nash keep hitting the snooze button until he pops up and starts walking around.

    Brian,
    You could have a coughing fit or drop a pan on the floor…by accident of course.

    Yes, but that would be rude, as he lets me sleep in plenty. The funny thing is, if the Yanks piss me off, or I raise my tone even the slightest, or say stupid computer, Nash jumps up to make sure I am ok, it is pretty funny. He has really limited my outbursts, but with college football season coming up, my Gators better be perfect, or there will be a lot of Nash jumping up.

    I did let him sleep in, next time I will stomp around. He is actually snoring away again right now. I would kill to be able to fall asleep like him, but he probably doesn’t have as much on his mind as I do!

    I wouldn’t worry… if he wakes up, he wakes up. And if he goes back to sleep he goes back to sleep! But if you made him wake up early occasionally whenever you got up early, maybe he wouldn’t mind? Most dogs don’t unless there the grumpy, snotty type. But from what I’ve read about Nash he’s certainly far from snotty and grumpy! If he wakes up early he’ll get more sleep later on, so I’m sure it wouldn’t matter which way it goes, whether he sleeps in or whether he goes to bed earlier, or both.
