Last night was the first time in weeks Toby slept through the night. Ahhh.. it was so nice! No waking up at 4:40 a.m. to go out, get a drink of water or nibble on a snack. He slept right through.
I can’t even begin to tell you how nice it was!

For the past month or so, Toby has been waking up in the middle of the night wanting to either go out side, go downstairs or eat. It’s usually somewhere between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m., and on mornings when I have to go to work the next day.
He even did it Sunday night when my aunt stayed over Christmas night. We came back in from outside at 5 a.m. and ran over and licked her nose!
I always take him out at night between 11 p.m. and midnight before I go to bed, so he really shouldn’t have to do anything overnight. Last night I decided to give him a treat around 10:30 p.m. figuring if he gets up because he’s hungry, that might nix that.
We’re going to the vet for his yearly exam on Thursday morning, so I’ll be talking to him about it then, but any suggestions on how to combat this, would be helpful. I’m a little out of ideas.
