Once again it's time to give an update on Mr. Perfect "Ace" and Mr. Not So Much "Romeo".
There has been a scientific breakthrough at our house. I think we can prove that dogs can tell time. Understand some of you might be perplexed by the idea that a dog can read a clock. However over the past year it appears that both dogs have finely tuned this very complex skill.
Here are the facts to support the hypothesis. Both dogs have developed a nightly routine of putting themselves to bed at exactly 10:00. Both head up stairs to their beds without prompting. Every afternoon at exactly 2:30 they come to me wanting their afternoon feeding. I get the look of what in the world are you waiting on do you not know what time it is? They reinforce this demand by barking and pawing at me until I check the time. This just verifies that they have read the clock and determined that it is 2:30 PM and action needs to be taken immediately. Last point to verify this skill is at 7:00 they start giving me the look "We are going on a walk, right?" Hard to argue the fact that every day at exactly the same times the response is the same
We are not bragging but most dog owners talk about commands to sit, stay or heal. Ours tell time.
Thanks again Coonhound Rescue for Mr. Perfect and Mr. Not So Much!
