It's that time of year again when I am going to lose another hour of sleep! I am not looking forward to it at all! I am no longer a puppy, I turn 3 years old in June, therefore I am getting a bit more lazy and don't like getting up early at all!
I know mom is already planning a strategy to keep me on schedule starting tomorrow, the day we have to get up an HOUR earlier. I do not get out of bed easy, especially if Dad is still there.

Like she'll know it will be dark out when we should to go to the park in the morning, IF she can get me out of bed, so she'll have to dig out my LED collar again. Getting me out of bed is hard enough but it's trying to reschedule my dinnertime that will be the hardest. I love my dinnertime. Dad usually gets home at 4 p.m., Mom feeds me at 4:30. Its not unusual for me to start "The Look" as soon as Dad is settled down with his beer. My dinnertime keeps getting earlier and earlier, it used to be I waited until mom and dad had eaten before I would eat. On the weekends I can start "The Look" combined with "The Whimper" as early as 3 p.m.

Well, Mom does not want to feed me at 3 p.m. on Sunday! I only get fed once a day, that's ever since the vet "suggested" I was eating too much and to cut back on my food. Mom is worried that I am really hungry which is why I want to eat before my dinnertime. Well, yes, wouldn't you be if you ate once a day? She wants to start feeding me twice a day again and thinks that Sunday, after we lose an hour, would be a good time to start. In the morning, when we get back from our walk, she'll give me one half of my dry, or half a cup of my Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Bison, and in the evening at the new 4 p.m., she'll give me the other half of my dry with the wet Wellness Lamb, which is all that really matters to me.
Hopefully I won't gain weight! Mom is confident that if she measures carefully I'll maintain my girlish figure. I truly believe it is the animals that have the hardest time of all with Daylight Savings Time! Nobody asked us!
Do you get fed once or twice a day?
