Canine alarm clocks

SHERYL HAD TROUBLE sleeping last night due to restless leg, which only occasionally bothers her. So she took a prescribed pill, she has dubbed a "brain wipe," and passed out cold.

She had trouble getting up this morning. So I let her sleep. My banging around to get ready and the loud tree trimming service truck in the alley didn't wake her up. So I checked her breathing. I was going to tell her I was leaving for the store, but instead I left her a note and happily walked downtown - a cool spring morning, perfect for walking.

A few minutes after 10, Sheryl walked into the store.

"As soon as you left, the dogs woke me up," she said.

Bella and Tucker have that wake up power. They'd been walked, treated and told to chill. But the second I left, they ganged up on their sleeping human, jumping on the bed and looking at Sheryl with angelic doggie faces and lolling tongues.

And, of course, as soon as Sheryl left the the house, they started barking at squirrels and humans and cars and leaves blowing across the front lawn.

I wonder if there is a way to market this doggie wake up service?
