Recently, Alexandre Lima encountered a small problem that can have a negative influence on his livelihood. Lima continued to oversleep despite setting the alarm on his phone to get him up in time for work in the morning.

At first, Lima said to The Dodo, “I assumed I was turning off the alarm while I was sleeping.”

However, it turned out to be someone else completely.

After about a week of oversleeping due to the alarm not waking him, Lima uncovered the source of the problem which was causing him so much concern. It was actually his dog, Dory.

One morning, he stirred from sleep long enough to catch the furry culprit in the act.

“I woke up and saw Dory licking the phone,” Lima said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

The pup had figured out how to silence Lima’s alarm all on her own:

Lima and his wife were stunned. They captured video of Dory’s surprising new ability on camera to explain the recent delays.

“I told my boss, showing him the video, and he thought it was very funny,” Lima said. “I’m glad I didn’t have worse problems, besides the embarrassment of having to explain myself.”

It was Dory’s fault. But Lima doesn’t hold it against her.

Rather than shutting off the alarm in order to get some extra sleep herself, Lima suspects Dory’s motives were far more adorable.

“She associated the alarm with us leaving the house,” Lima said. “Without the alarm, we would stay with her longer.”

For better or worse, Lima has subsequently discovered a remedy to the oversleeping issue brought on by Dory. The phone is now being positioned on a shelf out of her reach.

Nevertheless, Lima is unperturbed by his adorable dog’s attempts to interfere with his workdays.

“How could I wish her ill?” said Lima. “Look at her face, please. She is really pleased with herself.
