Is it Time to Eat Yet?
Hu-mom here today.
There is a certain routine at the Cooper household that starts around 3PM almost everyday. All of a sudden, all the napping 4 leggers start millling around. If anyone happens to go into the kitchen, they do not go alone. They will have an audience.
Since I work at home in the afternoons during the week, you can find me upstairs in our home office, ususally working away at my computer. Around 3, the kitties will start their routine of sitting either on my key board or on my hand/mouse. Minnie appears, usually with her mini-tennis ball wanting to play. Mack moves from his doggie bed in the office to under my feet. This will continue until about 4 when I finish work. If I make a move toward the stairs, everyone will rush down ahead of me. Out of experience, I know to stop at the top and wait for everyone else to go down first. And as stated above, heaven forbid if someone enters the kitchen.
When Hu-dad gets home from work around 4:30 or so, I usually go back to my computer for a last minute email check. Everyone follows. Minnie knows it getting closer to chow time, and begins her conversation.
Check out this video:
The magic hour is usually between 5:15 and 5:30. They can't wait a minute more, you know, they are starving to death.
Do your doggies have this conversation with you each day?
