Ruff morning! Husky dog wake-up call is a hilarious viral hit

Huskie alarm clock

Wake-up calls generally are not very peaceful.

But no matter the rudeness of your typical wake-up call—whether it’s the kids jumping on your bed or that alarm clock you ambitiously (but regretfully) set 15-minutes early—it’s probably not as, um, unique as the one seen in this viral YouTube video.

In the 41-second clip, a man sleeps soundly under the covers until his partner coaxes in their substantially-sized Husky. The dog is trained to pounce on laser pointers, so when the partner points the laser at the slumbering man, the Husky goes nuts. While there are probably worse ways to wake up than being pummeled by your dog, the startled man doesn’t seem at all amused.

The video has raked in close to 2 million views since it went live five days ago. 

What’s your preferred way to wake up in the morning?
