My GSD alarm

September 7, 2016 | minutes read

I’m an early bird.  I find that I’m the most productive with a little extra time in the morning, which I devote to personal development — meditating, reading, and writing. I wake, usually, to the sound of the alarm; today, though, I woke up naturally. Or so I thought.

I glanced at my watch. 05:30AM.  I gave an approving kudos to my body for blessing me with an extra 30 minutes to kick start the day.  But it was not until I reviewed arlo that I uncovered Maxella, my sister’s German Shepherd, struggling to sneak into my bed — her lack of finesse and lion sized paws sent a small wave of vibrations through the bed, enough to wake me up.
