So Gator, my ancient one (14ish) is recovering from bowel surgery done at the first of the month, he's had to go on a very small (about a Tblspoon) portion slushy diet consisting of quality canned and rice that I mush to the 'nth degree and H20....I'm supposed to be weaning him off and upping his amount and we've had 2 set backs. First everytime I try to up the amount a bit he get urppy, second my vet wanted him off TOW because the protein is too high...well I tried several quality brands of lower protein and that made him really sick. So back to TOW, that I know he can tolorate for now at least, I'll just start soaking a small amount of kibble and mix in some rice.

Soooo, he gets fed 4 times a day with his slushy and he'll start whining right on the dot when he's due his next meal I swear he's watching the clock. HOW does he KNOW it's been 4 hours EXACTLY right on the dot. If it wasn't so agrivating I'd take it on the road and make millions.

That's quite impressive!

Our Mastiff Brody asks for a walk precisely (around) 30 minutes after my wife and I finish supper. He does get us up and moving.

I wish my dogs would do that!

My dogs think they can tell time because every time I put my shoes on they think they get to go out. They are sorely mistaken since I, for the most part, have just taken them out and am leaving for work or to run an errand lol

I do think that dogs have some kind of sense of time. For instance when it is close to dinner time they congregate in the kitchen. Bed time and they all head to the bedroom etc. at 6:30 every morning no matter what they all wake up at the same time. I sure don't need and alarm clock.

My parents dog has barked every day at exactly 5:30 for years if my dad hasn't fed her by then. When the time changes for daylight saving, she even adjusts accordingly.

My dog gets walked first thing every morning at 6 a.m., and most mornings, he's up and waiting for the harness before the alarm even goes off, and runs circles around me impatiently while I groggily throw on my sweats and shoes.

Well the only bad part about mine is, my smaller one runs on top of my feet while I'm trying to put my shoes on. Makes things very difficult lol

I got a black eye, well green eye, from my bigger one when she was a pup. She went to jump up on the couch when I was bending down to get the ball off the floor and her hard head smacked me right in the eye really hard.
