This morning, I woke up at 5:30 AM and could not get back to sleep. After a few minutes of tossing and turning, I finally gave up and surrendered myself to the mercy of the Macbook and the coffee pot and positioned myself near the window so as to enjoy the pending Atlanta sunrise.
As I typed away, jotting down ideas for work, Life with Arie, and beyond, I became aware of a low, rhythmic sound coming from the living room. Steadily, the noise got louder, and louder, until it was clearly identifiable: Arie, my White German Shepherd, was snoring.
I peeked into the living room, because Arie only snores when she sleeps on her back; so much cute cannot be missed. As she usually does anytime I try to sneak up on her, she cracked one eye open, surveyed me and the rest of the scene, then grumbled, rolled back over, and went back to her beauty sleep. I thought about grabbing a photo of her resting, then started to think about the numerous photos I have of this dog at rest, bring us to the “seven sides of a sleepy White German Shepherd”:
1: The Sofa Stretch
2. The Sunbathing Beauty
3. The (ahem) Southern Exposure
4. The “Don’t look at me, I need my beauty rest”.
5. The Vigilante
6. The Snuggler
7. The Sprawler
