See these innocent faces? Don't let them fool you. That little doggie right there? Attack dog!

Jonah, my second son, has the dog sleep with him every night. I've heard you can get various diseases from this practice, but seriously, which has more dirt, a teenage boy or a princess dog? It's up for grabs. Anyway, Jonah takes after his mom. He hates mornings. HATES them. He starts school at 7:30, which is inhumane for both of us, but apparently, the dog too.

My son has taught the dog to attack me when I wake him up. I'm not kidding. The hand that feeds her! She will growl, go for my wrists and attack, so it becomes a game of whack-a-mole to wake up my son. Jonah finds this hysterical that he taught the dog this, and it makes him laugh, so that's what usually wakes him up. If you have any secrets for lulling teens out of bed safely, I'm all ears!

Oh my goodness, your post cracked me up!!! Jonah's a hoot!

It's crazy. She only does it in the morning, but even if he moves to the sofa, Fiona will protect him. LOL

That's hysterical.

My dad used to play Reveille in the morning to get us out of bed on a Saturday. (He was NOT in the Army, either.)

My dog and I just laid there. :)

Valerie, that's a good doggie. LOL The funny part is the closer I get to Jonah, the more the dog jumps and goes crazy and so Jonah gets jumped all over and can't sleep under his crazy guard dog.

Teenage boy or princess dog? Well, I don't know of teenage boys that lick what princess dogs lick.

I'm sure you wouldn't like to hear what I think should be done with attack dogs.

Well, Timothy, I'm a Mama Bear. No one messes with my babies, so they're safe.

My Mom used to set 3 alarms, all over the room for my brother. Still he wouldn't wake up. She'd pull the covers off of him, beg him, plead with him. One day she pulled back the covers and threw a bucket of water on him. That got the big lug out of bed!

Bahhaa I love your mom! I have this really obnoxious alarm clock for Jonah. He calls it his "racist" clock because it yells at him with an Italian accent, an Indian accent, etc.

He's still not up this morning. I have sprayed him like a dog, but never the bucket. Hmmm. LOL

At 9:51 AM, Blogger Kristin said...

Oh and your mom was ahead of her time. The clock he has takes off and shakes and goes around the room if he doesn't turn it off, he has to chase it. LOL

That's hysterical! Be glad, though, that you have a princess dog and not Shadrach. They'd never find you.

Good point, Ane! Though at that point, she'd be at the pound. She barked during my radio interview (to get off the bed) so I hope that wasn't heard. LOL
