Whoooo Whoooo

Before I got Rosie, I read a book about her breed.  It taught me lots of great things about her teeth, her heart, her demeanor, etc.
What it didn't tell me about was what to do when your King Charles Spaniel gets in a barking match with an owl at 3:45 AM.  I could have really used that chapter last night. 
This was after she already woke us up at 11:45, 1:30, and 2:00 barking for no reason.  It went on about every 30 minutes for the entirety of the night.  Until the morning light came through the windows. 
(I'm sure the owl had no idea it was participating in ruining my REM cycle, poor guy).
That's when she started barking again for no apparent reason that I could tell.  The owl had said it's goodbyes.  The weather was calm.  There was nary a noise to be heard.
It wasn't until I got up and she was STILL barking that I realized what her problem was this time.  She had found her reflection.  And, unlike most people who have met Rosie's adorable little face, she was NOT a fan.
Needless to say, I got a super crappy night's sleep and I'm now hung over on Rosie and lack of sleep.  She's really lucky her face is so damn cute, but sometimes I think if it wasn't, I might have to kill her.
