Ah, the canine alarm clock -- I had three of them this morning. DH was snoring badly last night, and the three indoor/outdoor cats decided to demand to go from indoor to outdoor in 15 minute increments starting at about 3 A.M., so I moved out to the living room to sleep to get away from DH and keep the constant moving around from bothering him, which was fine once I got rid of all the cats, until the dogs forgot it was a weekend so I didn't need to be up at 5:30. Bogey and Jethro sleep crated at opposite ends of the room and Z sleeps loose in the house. The boys started stirring in their crates (whining, scratching, rattling the metal - just generally being annoying) and Z kept nosing around. The boys can usually be settled for at least another 15-30 minutes with a firm command, and Z will lay back down if you give her a pillow, but eventually she decided it was time for me to be UP because all 65 pounds of her landed on the foot part of the recliner, which was enough to bring the back of the chair straight up, lol, not sure which of us was more surprised - good thing she was looking extra cute when we ended up nose to nose.
