Dog lovers around the world fall in love with a brave pup with a disdain for the morning. Most of us groaned at the sound of our morning alarm clock, which makes this dog’s fight extremely understandable.
Eddie is an 8-year-old Yorkie Mix who was adopted in 2018 by a vet nurse named Lisa Mattuchio. Eddie came up with a few quirks that all helped Lisa realize he was the pup for her.
Eddie was born with a severe patellar dislocation that could not be surgically repaired. After Lisa had already walked through 3 different houses that weren’t working, Lisa knew she was the solid foundation Eddie needed. Lisa took Eddie home soon after they met and promised to give him the loving home he deserved.
Soon after taking Eddie home, she noticed that he was never very concerned about getting up and moving with the sunrise. While Eddie is enjoying his days with his fur mum and furry siblings to the fullest, the morning is not his thing. After Lisa had spent most of the mornings laughing at his surly antics, Lisa knew it was time to share Eddie’s morning routine with the world.
Eddie’s first viral TikTok made him growl as Lisa pulled back his fluffy blanket and grumbled at the thought of getting out of bed. Lisa even gives Eddie 10 more minutes of slumber every morning only to face even more grumpy growls when she returns.
“Eddie, come on, mate, it’s been about 10 minutes, come on.” – Lisa Mattuchio
Eddie went viral shortly after this video was released, leading to a number of admirers who equally hate their morning alarm clock. Most of the comments on Eddie’s videos relate to his struggles. I’m sure we all wish we could “pull an Eddie” some mornings!

Lisa is incredibly patient with Eddie, gives him plenty of pets, and encourages him when it is time to get up and move around. Eddie goes to work with his furry mom most days, which likely means he can get back to sleep when she arrives.
Eddie now has his own wheels to help him get around, as well as regular physical therapy to help his tiny muscles gain strength. It is clear that Eddie has found the perfect home for him, one that he will love with each of his grumpy breakdowns.
“Eddie opened my heart and mind to adopting all animals with special needs. He’s quirky and hilarious in his own quirky way. Like all of my dogs, he needs a little extra care, but the love specials are worth it. Please consider adopting your next furry family member! ”- Lisa Mattuchio
We can’t wait to keep up with Eddie’s morning routine and will relate to his struggles every time our alarm goes off!
