I’m guessing you do not take me seriously when I tell you that Jake honk-snores. Or maybe you do but you think to yourself that it can really be ‘that’ loud. I mean, I understand. He’s only 31 pounds. But I’m telling you, swearing on the lovely bag I carried to work today, that he breaks noise barriers. Police could use this noise to force thieves out of hiding. It’s a ‘take no prisoners’ type snore. The deaf could hear him.
During the transition from soft crate to bed, I’ve come to realize that said crate was some sort of magic box. While you could hear the honk-snore noises, they were somehow muffled. Quieter. Not sure how, but that doesn’t make it less true.
In a bed, Jake’s snoring has taken on a new life form. No one sleeps but Jake. No one. I’m not even sure my neighbors can sleep and we have a single family home. More on the actual sleeping arrangements later this week but for now, here are two photos I snapped of Melvin IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT while we were both up due to extreme noise pollution. The look on his face says it all. (And you’ll notice, I finally got his bed cleaned, all traces of Jake peeing on it erased).
I feel so bad for you, but your explanations of this saga is just hilarious!
I still you recall you booting the snore-machine from your guest suite when you stayed with us. I knew at that moment you were brilliant!
LOL I am picturing you and Melvin all groggy and grumpy in the morning and Jake waking up all bright eyed and bushy-tailed (-stumped?) going “Hey guys! What’s up? How ya doin’? What are we gonna do today? Play? Eat? Walk? More play? Let’s go!!”
This is 100% our EVERY morning!
What Emily said! I really feel for you (and Melvin!) but I laughed out loud!
I think Melvin is looking at you like “Mom, I saw the perfect manhole for him to sleep in .. I’m just say’in”.
Aw… poor Melvin and poor you too… I hope you guys can figure something out because after so many nights of no sleep someone might get a little cranky!
Yikes! Hope you guys can figure out a solution soon… even if it means Jake needs his own bedroom…
The look on Melvin’s face? Priceless!
Oh I know your pain. Tori and Mesa both are snore monsters!
