• In the last few months, I’ve woken up with a start after feeling like I’ve been punched in my back. My Doberman, Eli, is the culprit. In the middle of the night, he wakes up. He twirls around and around in circles then falls right on top of me. What can I do?

    This is a very simple question. You’re snoring. Don’t deny it. Probably very loud. And Eli is a dog, so he needs his solid 16 hours. I’m sure he tries to be polite and nudge you to try to get you to roll over. But the most effective way – and I think Eli is right here – is to fall right on top of you and bruise a hip. So stop snoring. You may want to try one of those little band-aid things on your nose.
