It's all in the eye of the beholder. And this is what MY eye beholds first thing every morning...Dog #2. And yes, my camera is on my bedside table (no comments please!). It's a morning routine I've grown quite accustom too. First comes the warm dog breath on my face, followed by this view thru my squinting eyes. Personally....it's my favorite kind of alarm clock. If only it came with a breath mint!
