Q: How effective has Sammy become in sleeping through Ella's antics?
A: See below for Ella's Guide to Waking Up A Very Sleepy Dog in 4 Easy Steps
Step 1: Share a book with him. If he is not interested, push the book on his face so he has no choice but to try to escape it.
Step 2: Practice your acrobatic, Cirque de Soliel moves on top of the poor fella
Step 3: Maybe a drink will rouse him? Offer him some tasty milk. If he refuses, have some big chugs yourself to keep up your strength.
Step 4: Open a musical Halloween card in his face. Repeat, over and over, laughing while you do it. This is just about foolproof, and guaranteed to work.
See Sammy? You really didn't need that nap anyway...
