the dogs are quite happy during the week when I rise at 6 a.m. - that suits them fine but come the weekend when I can switch off the alarm and have a well-deserved lie-in, until whenever suits,
their routine is disturbed. Dino decides to whine in her incomparable way but what is worse, Eric starts
to pace the floor, silently & uncomplainingly and then sighs deeply and throws hiself onto his pile of blankets. ten minutes later, he is quietly padding around again, checking my face to see that I am breathing and licking my ear a bit more pacing up and down, more sighs louder this time.
this alarm clock is activated by these doggy noises and responds by playing a quiet recording of my voice with messages like: 10 more minutes, guys hey, its saturday give a girl a break, theres a dear!.
there is a mechanism to shoot little treats out every five minutes or so as a reward for cessation of noise and activity and an electronic connection to the backdoor to open and close as necessary.
of course the deluxe version would have a 3D hologram of yours truly getting up and dressing etc but thats still in the design stage.
