SLEEPYBERG — We’ve all been there. The alarm goes off in the wee hours of the morning and you can’t think of anything worse that could happen to you in that moment.
As humans, we have the option to hit snooze to try to catch the inexplicable nine more minutes of shut-eye that alarm clocks allow. But if you’re a dog, your only option is to groggily protest with howls and tired body language to ask, "Who disturbs my slumber?" And a vizsla named Oscar knows that feel, bro.
Oscar is snuggled under a duvet and far away in dreamland when an alarm begins to sound. Just like a human, it takes Oscar a few moments to register the alarm. When he does, his first response is a groggy whimper which gradually escalates into full, head-back howls.
But with like many humans, especially of the teenage variety, Oscar settles back into his cozy spot and falls back asleep once the alarm has stopped ruining his morning. Boy howdy, first-world dog problems are especially tough.
