Besides that we have a wonderful relationship. I have no idea what to do .
I wake up early, My Husband is asleep and when I go near the dog he Growls at me very loud. This just started maybe 2 weeks ago. and FYI I have never ever been physical or really yelled at him. He is a 3 year old boxer/great dane mix. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum...
I would take him to the vet for some blood work including a thyroid panel. Sudden behavior change can be due to a medical condition.

Yes, good advice from LM.
There are many insidious illnesses that could cause him to feel grouchy in the morning. What he is telling you is "leave me alone! I'm not ready to leave this bed yet!" I'd add to your list the standard 4DX tick disease test, as well as standard blood work.

There may be a touch of resource guarding with the bed involved too.
But I'd definitely let the sleeping dog lie, as they say. He's grouchy for a reason, so I'd be trying to figure out why he's not acting his normal self.
