There are some benefits to having a dog that's pretty much deaf and sleeps hard. I woke up this morning before my alarm, needing to use the bathroom. I had about an hour left to sleep. It's one thing if you wake in the middle of the night having to go-you get up and it doesn't matter who you wake up-they know it's the middle of the night and go back to sleep. However, being so close to wake up time-if the dog wakes up now-it's good odds he'll get up and want to go outside. Here's where the stealth comes in. I got out of bed. Sam was sound asleep in the hall, next to the bathroom. I tiptoed by him, used the bathroom, then walked back over him to get back to bed. He never moved. Yes, one more hour of sleep!
