In this family, mornings don’t start with the sound of an alarm. Rather, every morning the Landrum kids are woken up by a fluffy puppy named Tallie. For Tallie, delivering wake-up calls is like a full-time job.
Tallie is a Goldendoodle, and she is part of Brittany Landrum’s family. Brittany is married and has two kids who absolutely love Tallie. When the kids figured that Tallie is a morning dog, they decided to swap alarm clocks for morning kisses from Tallie. So now, that’s how they wake up every day: with an energetic furball trying to get them to give her attention.
Tallie is very energetic, and as soon as she is let into the kids’ room, she starts zooming around. She pushes herself into the kids, trying to get them to wake up quickly so that they can play. Brittany says that she would never want to be startled awake like this, and that’s a sentiment most dog parents share. No matter how much you might love your dog, most people just can’t deal with all that energy as soon as they wake up. But Brittany made sure to let people know that that’s what her kids want. They ask her every night to let Tallie into their room when it’s time to wake up. And that’s exactly what Brittany does.
Tallie is a very efficient substitute for an alarm as she doesn’t have a snooze button. The kids don’t have a choice in the morning but to wake up. But it’s all good because every night they look forward to waking up and playing with Tallie again.
