The Howling

Morning's in the Kromer household are usually very busy.  The first alarm goes off at 6:20AM and I allow myself 2 snoozes and get up at 6:40AM.  I have given up use of my alarm clock in my room and exclusively use my cell phone as the alarm.  In case I happen to oversleep, I have a back up alarm that goes off at 7:10AM.  I have never had to use this alarm to wake up but it goes off religiously at 7:10AM every morning.

Given the business of the morning, I usually bring my cell phone down stairs with me and turn off the other alarms as they go off.  This morning I forgot to bring my phone downstairs and this caused an amazing event to take place.  The alarm went off at 7:10AM and Zack was still getting ready for school so I didn't immediately run upstairs to turn it off.  The alarm just kept ringing and ringing, but I didn't take much notice of it since I was downstairs.  Zack leaves the house by 7:17AM every morning so that he can catch his bus at 7:27AM.  After he walked out of the house this morning, I went back into the kitchen to check my work e-mail and that is when the event occurred. 

As I sat at the kitchen table working on my laptop I heard this sound start.  I wasn't quite sure what it was at first, but then I realized it was a howling dog.  It was Finnegan upstairs in my bedroom howling at my cell phone.  I had to go see what was going on!  As I walked into the bedroom I was greeted with the cutest and most hilarious sight!  Finnegan was standing on my bed with his head pointed towards the ceiling howling like a wolf howls at the moon.  I so wish I had been able to capture this on video, but unfortunately as soon as I walked the whole way into the room, Finnegan was surprised by me and stopped howling.

Finn still has one of the cutest of puppy barks, so when he howled it was just an amazing sound that came out of his mouth.  I am going to see if I can teach him to howl on command or at least if I can get him to howl every time he hears that alarm.  If I can capture him on video doing this, it will be one of the funniest videos that you will ever see.  I hope can capture it so that I can share it with everyone.

I hope everyone has had a great week so far!

Thanks and peace to all! ~J.

That was too cute. I love the antics of puppies and how smart they are.
