It’s not just humans who have difficulty getting up in the morning – as tiny terrier Eddie proves in this hilarious video.
The seven-year-old Yorkie mix has been filmed snarling and growling at owner Lisa Mattuchio when she wakes him.
Time and time again Eddie proves he is not a morning pooch, despite Lisa’s attempt to coax and persuade him out from under his blanket at their home in Saugus, Massachusetts.

She attempts to soothe the dog’s temper and says: ‘There’s nothing to be mad at. Today’s an exciting day, we’re going to go to work,’ as she strokes his back.
As Eddie lies back down, seemingly hoping to be left in bed, Lisa says she will give him five more minutes.

She added: ‘I try to wake him up softly. The videos are just a reaction to his needing to get up.’
