I don't need an alarm clock because my corgis apparently have some rooster genes. They make sure I am up by 6:30 EVERY morning. They start out by doing the "hey-are-you-up-yet" tap dance. If that doesn't work, they start moving their bowls and nyla bones around (very passive-aggressive little pups!) If that doesn't work, I get the little "wuf." And if that doesn't work, I finally get the full "WOOF!" Silly corgis!
