So, I got a new alarm clock for Christmas. It's a "spa" alarm clock, complete with several soothing white-noise options, a timer to fall asleep to said white noise, outside air temp, time and temp projector, and amazingly, has a clock and an alarm as well.
Some days, I think my dog is very smart. Other days, not so much.
I love the white noise thing. Especially when Matt is out of town. It helps with my tendency to absolutely freak out over every little noise in our rickety old house, and allows my over-active imagination to relax and sleep already.
Except that Jake can't seem to figure out this white noise maker.
He doesn't understand why it's raining in my bedroom and nowhere else.
So, he barks.
Then, he wanders the house, searching for another room that's reporting said rainstorm.
He finds none.
So he barks some more.
Now, white noise or not, I'm hearing all sorts of things and wondering if Jake really hears something, or if the "rain" just has him befuddled.
So much for relaxing.
On a more positive note, it appears my dog must dream of running wild and free at the beach. Because the "Ocean Sounds" white noise? It doesn't bother him one bit. It just makes him run in his sleep, and grunt these little playful grunts. I wonder if he's sleeping on the East coast or the West coast?
