As far as excuses go, this one's pretty good.

One man's dog apparently learned how to hit the snooze button on his owner's alarm.

A video posted to YouTube that's gone viral shows the boxer sneaking into the bedroom, then pawing the clock buttons until the alarm stops.

"Today I found out why I have been waking up late," the video poster wrote. "My boxer Kermit has been snoozing my alarm. This alarm has a snooze button that has to be held to activate, (but) he apparently is aware of this feature."
