The dogs have a weird sense of time.
I leave them and go for 10 mins. When I return, they howl and cry and jump and lick as if I’m returning after an year on the moon.
Yet, they are better than any alarm clock at reminding me when it’s 6AM (breakfast time), 11:30 AM (walk/run time), 12:30 PM (lunch time), 6:30 PM (evening play time) or 7:30 PM (dinner time). They never miss those appointed hours for anything, even when we’re travelling.
How is the clock in their heads so perfect in some ways and so screwed up in others? :)
