The Brighthope Blues are always eager to get started in the morning and let the "leader of the pack" know when it is time to get going. I am a morning person so that is fine with me.
Eclat has started a new routine earlier then normal, she starts "talking" (yes, Blues do talk) loud enough for me to hear upstairs. Once she goes outside to do her business, she comes in for breakfast and then heads back up to her puppies. Then they have their breakfast and they all go back to sleep for another hour.
It is very peaceful to watch Eclat and her babies. I have spent more then a few mornings, coffee cup in hand, just observing this little family.
