Same, here. As an EMT, I napped in a chair or stayed awake for the entire shift. 22- and 24-hr shifts were tough. But my crew routinely marked enroute within 2 minutes, even at 3am. And when we first lived together, I would start at the slightest movement or sound in the room, and had to teach my wife how to wake me safely. I belted her a few times, but she was tough and hit back - it didn't take me too long to learn. 18 years later, I still start, but I don't try to deck her, anymore.Originally Posted by Rob72

Back to the K9 discussion, herding dogs are bred to be vigilant. I have a 10 yr old Australian Shepherd that goes nuts when someone gets within half a block, and continually patrolls the interior of the house throughout the night. It sees our family as it's flock. He does most of his sleeping during the day when nobody is home.
Herding dogs drive you nuts sometimes because of their intelligence (it's easier to have a dumb dog) and activity level, but their vigilance is something I've really come to appreciate.
