the best alarm clock

So I used to think that our 75 lb black lab mix was the best alarm clock in the world. He was always excited to start the day. He gave us more reasons to wake up early than just going to plain old work. He got us outside, rain or shine, to appreciate nature (and clean it up).

But Z is learning to love sleep as much as we do. His snooze button is on permanently.

And the timing couldn't be more perfect, because his job as waker-upper has been usurped by a much lighter weight version ... a full 50 lbs lighter. This new, updated clock wakes up happy and excited to see us. And though more overall work, I have never laughed so much in the morning. I now truly appreciate time. How fitting.
