My dog woke me up early in the morning and I went into the kitchen and the lights were on and my dog sleeps in his cage in the kitchen. I turned the lights off and my dog stops whining. About 20 minutes later, he starts whining again! I went to the kitchen and the lights were on again. I guess my brother got a drink in the kitchen and didn't turn off the lights. So I turned off the lights again and no more whining. My dog was saying, "Dammit, turn off the freaking lights! I'm trying to sleep!
