Ever since I took this video of Burger, I’ve been inspired (probably too strong of a word) to capture more of his everyday idiosyncrasies. So the other night when he fell asleep on my head as we were reading in bed, I felt a slight twitching coming from him – meaning he was having some crazy canine dream. So naturally I broke out my iPhone camera (and later added some stock YouTube music since silence makes me uncomfortable). I was actually hoping to capture some of the dream-barking he often does, but sadly this was a quiet slumber. Oh well, hopefully next time. At least there were a few impressively creepy eye flutters…
I’ll be the first to admit this video of Burger isn’t very exciting. But in so many ways it captures the way we see him everyday.
I was actually trying to take a picture of him, but accidentally had my phone on video mode. But I’m glad I took the clip because I’ve always wanted to capture what I call “Burger’s Wake-Up” routine. This isn’t all of it – there are multiple rounds of yawning, stretching to the front, stretching to the back, rigorous shakes, and, um, some licking – but in case I never get the whole bit on camera, at least I’ll have this. You know, so we’ll always remember that yawning is a full facial event for him.
