Those of you who have been reading Progressive Blogic for past several months know that I recently adopted an American Eskimo dog (Eskie), that I names Relay. He has been a wonderful blessing and is very enjoyable to have around (most of the time).
There one thing about Relay that confounds the daylights out of me. Somehow he knows or senses (within 5 minutes) when my cell phone alarm clock is about to go off in the morning and will jump on the bed and wake me.
I am fairly certain he was not born in Greenwich, England and no one has said his real name is Timex or Rolex, so I don’t quite know what to make of this knack he has of keeping time so accurately. Perhaps his bladder has a timer, or his stomach, but whatever it is, it’s amazingly accurate.
The only problem with his keen ability to sense my wake-up time is that it does not work on weekends or holidays. While I don’t mind being awakened at 6:15 a.m. instead of 6:20 am on my work days, I am not too thrilled about 6:15 am on Saturdays and Sundays when my goal is to sleep in as long as I can.
