In August of 2015, my girlfriend and I decided we wanted to adopt a rescue dog. We went to the Franklin County Dog Shelter, where we met and fell in love with a real sweetheart of a dog. We brought her home, and named her Naya. In pretty much every respect, Naya's an amazing dog. She is gentle, quiet, good around strangers, obedient (most of the time), clean, and a first-class cuddler, much to my girlfriend's delight.
My girlfriend and I are decidedly not morning people. We would prefer our day to start around 10 or 11 am, and end well after midnight. One worry I had in getting a dog was that those days were going to come to an abrupt end. I feared getting a dog that was bouncing off the walls at 5:30 in the morning, eager to get outside and start the day. So you can imagine my relief when I learned that Naya is also not a fan of mornings! This dog is a professional sleeper. I've seen her go into REM sleep just a couple minutes after plopping down into my lap...while I'm watching an action movie on TV, loudly...and eating dinner.
Naya's love for napping has since become a joke around our house, and eventually it turned into some "motivational" posters that my girlfriend and I send back-and-forth. And so, I give you "Watchdog", a gallery of Naya's motivational messages. I hope they inspire you to go out there and be somebody -- somebody who'll grab the bull by the horns, wrestle the bull to the ground, and then fall asleep using the bull as a pillow!
