Darwin is a very busy little boy. His daily agenda is quite full and I don't think he ever completes all his self imposed tasks on the schedule.

In the morning just before he eats he must zoom around the RHG to ensure all trees, the bamboo stand, the fencing and the garage are secure while he takes his meal.

After his meal he zooms back out to ensure the aforesaid items are still intact and in their rightful place. Then it's on to searching through the bamboo stand for... stuff. Any stuff.

Then back inside for some water and to stare at dad for a while. Okay... enough staring I'd better go make a nest in mom's bed and rest for awhile. The nest having been made and Dar safely snugged into it for 63 seconds, he remembers that he hasn't licked Paddy's teeth yet. Hop out of bed to find and torment the old boy.

Doggy dentistry complete he checks his list and sees "dig small hole" has not been checked off. Back to the RHG to begin the project. The Lhasa takes over that excavation and Dar moves on to munching bamboo leaves.

You get the idea. It goes on like this all day long. "Oh! I'd better go do... I'd better take care of... I must get that done..."

Such a busy little fellow. No wonder he doesn't move a muscle in bed during the night.

My, what an industrious little fellow! Buckley is pretty lazy by comparison: Get up, have a leisurely breakfast, go out to do his business, run upstairs to get back into bed with Dad for more morning snoozies under the covers. A walk before we leave for work and then the strenuous job of seeing us off and watching over the house from the couch while we are away.

Jewelie, on the other hand, feels that morning time is play time. She loves to run around, fling her toys in the air, bark and try to coax any one (or Buckley) into joining her. I have to tempt her under the covers too so that Dad can have his extra 45 mins of sleep time!

Otherwise, the evening agenda is dinner, walk and play play play!

The Bagel has a similar routine but not as exciting as Dardog. His routine is: Sleep until bob puts on his shoes (Last thing I do before leaving for work). Awake, stretch, trot to bedroom door and wait till bob approaches. Jump up on door to demonstrate the need for it to be opened and zoom to the back door where he again waits for bob. When let out, patrol the backyard but give an occasional glance to see if bob is still watching and as soon as I turn away, dash for the food bowl, I can only speculate what he does while I'm at work but I suspect there is a bunch of lizard fretting and sniffing mixed with doghouse occupation ans some inner eyelid inspection (Dare we say naps). I also suspect a vigilant ear listens for the sound of my approaching vehicle which requires the happy dance/scratch/beg at the back door until the hound is granted entrance. A couple minutes of zoomies and then shadow bob. There is usually a walk, ride, or other excitement to do followed by patient wait while bob prepares his supper. After performing the beagle pre-wash, the bagel plants himself in the middle of our bed until I am ready for sleep. The last duty of the day is the per functional nightly lick which lasts a little less than a minute followed by one last sign and sleep! The bagel is always keen for a change in my routine which signals a change in his (like our weekend trips).

Bagel likes breaks in the routine!

Darwin sure is a busy fellow. Mine leads a relatively uneventful life during weekdays as I have to go to work. But evenings are a little more exciting because we'll have our nightly walks, scavenging games or any other games I can think of and he's willing to play along. Weekends are the best because Boeing will not sleep a wink from early morning until late in the afternoon for fear of missing me. We'll walk, snack, play, walk, snack, play,... Then he'll go to bed early 'cause he can't hold off his sleep any longer :freak: .

Our two have a set routine. They sleep the night in their baskets (or share a basket), and at 7am jump on our bed for an hours cuddle. Sometimes they demand to go out into the garden before jumping on our bed. Finally we all get up and the hounds go out in the garden whilst I prepare their breakfast. This they eat and then curl up on the couch whilst Dave and I get washed. We then have our breakfast whilst Snoopy sleeps on the couch and Susi lies on the floor watching Dave. She stares him out as if to say hurry up I want that walk. Then Dave takes them out for an hours walk in the woods whilst I clear up, go shopping etc.. On their return they expect a treat. Then its time for a sleep. We humans then have lunch and the moment they hear the knives and forks being put down, up they jump and expect a treat from our lunch in their bowls. Mid afternoon its time for a family walk and we go for another hour, then its their evening meal time. After our evening meal they expect a treat then they settle down to sleep on the couch. Late evening its time for another walk and then its off upstairs for bed. They go straight into their baskets and sleep.
