I have not been on in awhile. Very busy. Junior is well and such a smart pup. I think he can tell time. Our morning routine is I get up first and feed Junior and my son then Junior goes in our bedroom and wakes up Dad. Saturday my husband thought he would attempt to sleep in. After Junior's first failed attempt at waking him up he decided to go outide for awhile but then came in the kitchen pacing nervously. He then kept running in our room. Apparently Dad would not get up so Junior proceeded to pull the pillow out from under his head and drag it into the family room. He knew that sleeping time was over. Junior also gets a walk about 4:00 each day and about that time today the phone rang and I got tied up. Junior apparently knew it was 4:00 because he started howling at me and tried to jump up and get his leash. Needless to say the phone call ended and away we went. Junior likes to stick to his schedule. I don't know what he will think when we head out in the RV this summer for vacation. Schedules and vacation do not always work.

Definitely! Except it worked well for us today because Booker usually starts demanding her dinner on the dot of 6 pm but after the early daylight savings change that is now 7 pm - so we actually got an extra hour of peace tonight before she started her protesting... we call Booker "Lech" after Lech Walesa because she is extremely good at making it clear when she is not (in her view) being treated appropriately!

It is un-canny how they do it. Vinny gets a pill (Phenobarbatol for his seizures) everynight at 8pm

If we forget, he comes to remind the wife. It is never after 8 but ALWAYS within 10 minutes before.

Beagles never cease to amaze me.

It sounds like Junior's got you well trained. :hi: I love the pillow story. Too funny. I'm sure your hubby didn't think it was too funny when he lost his pillow though. Junior just wanted daddy up and with him, that's all! LOL!

Jersey starts tapping her food bowl every night right around 6 pm. She knows that's dinner time! And by tapping, I mean slamming her paw on the ceramic bowl, which then bounces off the mat and makes a horrible sound when it hits the tile. She does the same thing if her water bowl is empty. :rolleye11:

I got a kick out of reading about Junior getting his dad out of bed! :biglaugh:

My husband works weird hours...9am-5pm or 12noon-8pm or 5pm-1am...etc. Depending upon which time he leaves the house, Kelsey (our honorary beetle-border collie/lab mix) approximates what time to go lie by the front door or the top of the stairs where she can see out and start waiting for his return. So if he goes to work for 5pm, she starts waiting for him around 1am'ish.

They really do know.

Junior sure is a funny guy! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif Lucky seems to sense time as well. He knows when it is food time, walk time, and bed time. He knows when I am supposed to get home for lunch as well. He's so smart!
