New Alarm Clock

We have a new alarm clock.
We started using it about 3 weeks ago.
It is quite efficient.
Though the wake time is a bit sporadic, ranging from 6am to 7:30 am.
It doesn't have a snooze or good off switch.
It is quite loud and could wake most of the neighborhood.
We are forced to get up.
Get dressed.
And take it for a walk.
We call it Shasta.
It is black with white.
It jumps up on most everyone.
We have to feed and water it.
Play with it.
Take it to the vet.
Brush it.
And then it will still go off.
Quite loudly.
Not non-stop.
It will bark once, wait a few seconds.
Bark again.
Until someone comes out to play.
I'm not sure why this has started.
But one day she started barking at 6 and kept going until finally we took her for a walk.
And it's been like that ever since.
I guess it has helped the parents start getting up earlier.
It will help us be less tired, come Thursday, when we HAVE to get up.
It has been a blessing.
We got the dog last fall.
To help the kids be less afraid of dogs.
It helped Jayden.
Katia is still working on it.
The little girls LOVE her.
Almost to death.
The older kids love her.
They will play with her and brush her.
Jayden will take her on walks.
So will Elyse and Ari.
Pets are suppose to teach kids responsibility.
I think Shasta has done that.
Ari will worry about her being too cold.
Same with Elyse.
Katia wants to teach her not to jump up people.
It was definitely a good thing for our family.
