Well I have been working night shift throughout the winter, so I don't get home until 6 a.m. and Spike is sound asleep. Well this morning when I got home I accidently woke the poor guy up and he sure showed me that he didn't like to be woken up in the wee hours of the morning. He showed me his first dark black beard. Now correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't that mean that they are mad? It shocked me at first because he is about 7 months old. I didn't think they started black beardie until they were around a year old. Anyway I just thought I would share that. And unfortunately I didn't get a pic, if he does it to me again tomorrow morning I will try to snap one.
