Yes this is how my dogs share with me every morning. I am so lucky to be so loved. A wet nose is one of my morning starts. The thump thump thump of a wagging tail makes my heart beat in tune.
It is great to hear their feet pad across the floor in the morning too. Checking to make sure the house and yard are safe and sound. Hearing them curl up at the foot of the bed on their bed to rest. Waiting for them to rest a moment but knowing it will not be long before that nose will be back in my face telling me it is time to wake up.
