I'm pretty sure he smelled it when he woke up anyway haha. Waking up to puke through any of your senses is not a good way to start your morning!

Well, it's not possible to smell when your asleep, your brain shuts off that sense until you wake up.

So how do you explain people using smelling salts when trying to wake someone who has passed out. Or people who wake up during house fires without smoke alarms. Haven't you ever even waken up to the smell of bacon in the morning?? Poor people like you who can't smell in their sleep are missing out!

It was the sound of the dog vomiting...so I assume the dog must have been retching pretty hard. Poor doggy :(

True, obviously your brain can detect thick clouds of ash that your breathing in your lungs. I ment still smells like dust, smelly laundry or whatever you have in your room that you breathe in, the only reason you know you smelt bacon is because your acutely awake, not when your asleep

It is an irritant to the inside of your nose. You don't "smell" things, only react to irritants! Ask your local fireman!

Why are we talking about smells? Hasn't it been established that it was the sound of the vomiting, because you know, that's what the OP said?

I also notice that you googled this, found practically the ONLY theory that said that smelling in your sleep is impossible, then copied and pasted the answer (from answerbag) to sound like you know what your talking about. I also googled this and found that you CAN smell in your sleep but may not be aware that you are in fact smelling. Obviously you will realize it when you wake up to it.

Not really I just had the exact same thing happen to me yesterday. You cant go back to sleep woth no sheets or blankets. So I got up and shoveled snow for 4 hour before school.

At least it was just the *sound* of the dog vomiting and not the actual vomiting. I'm just curious why you would record that sound and use it as an alarm. Whatever it takes to get you out of bed in the morning, I suppose.

I can only imagine how loud it must've been if it was able to wake you up, OP. Even if you're a light sleeper it would still have to be pretty loud.
