Wake Up Call

This morning, my alarm didn't go off.

I genuinely have no idea why, but my alarm not going off on a Saturday, the one day I need to be out of the house and at work by 8:30, is not good. I still got up and got to work in plenty of time, though. Because of Elka.

The alarm didn't go off at 7:00, the time for which it was set. I slumbered on blissfully. At 7:20, Elka stood up, taking the blanket with her. This woke me up, of course, and I looked up at her and said "What?" She stood on the bed with her head craned down, staring at me.

Then I thought "gee, it's awfully bright", and reached up for my phone to check the time, and then jumped right out of bed.

Elka to the rescue!


  1. That has definitely happened to me as well. Except that Pallo is the one who will wake me up. Koira is content to sleep until noon if I let her.

  2. I've been my mommy's alarm clock before -- I just love being the first thing she sees when she opens her eyes! Teehee!

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  3. And she's so much prettier than an alarm clock.

  4. Kol is usually my alarm. He wakes me up by coming to snuggle, usually about 10 min before the alarm goes off! Good thing they are so darn smart!

  5. @K-Koira well, Elka would have happily gone back to sleep (I in fact invited her back under the blankets before checking the time). She just wanted to make sure it was oikay!

    @Bailey Oh, Elka loves waking me up. Sometimes by yawning inches from my face in her best "raptor in Jurassic Park" impression. It's better than coffee!

    @Pamela isn't she though? Laser eyes and all!

    @Kolchak I'm definitely happy about having a smart dog!
