Mischief Monday - Messing With The Routine

 We have discovered in the past 427 days (that is how long our lockdown has been) that our boy dog is very set in his routine. He likes when we do things at about the same time everyday and he likes that we sit in the same spot.

Last week, the Man sat beside the Lady in the settee. Usually Man sits in the recliner.


Our boy sat there looking very unhappy. The humans found it very funny and now occasionally do it for fun!

  3. we do that same thing to Beau. He doesn't like for me to sit next to Bob in Bob's PLACE, it confuses him.. sorry Phod, we humans have to get a little fun once in a while.... Beau knows our routine perfectly and if we don't do what is next he tells us about it

  4. Oh that so reminds me of Hamish the Westie and the 'German class episode'. He used to come with me to a private German class held in the teacher's house. We always sat in the same place around the table. Then one week a new class member turned up and sat in 'my' place. Didn't bother me, but Hamish barked and barked until proper seating arrangements were restored! (The teacher, still a friend, is the 'M' of 'M and J' in recent posts).
    Cheers, Gail.

  8. Our girls have always been about routine but the shutdown has only increased their expectations. Dog Dad working from home and then gasp actually daring to go to work on occasion creates a huge challenge to the schedule. I have no idea how they are going to manage when Dog Dad goes back to work full time.

  11. Routines are safe. But sometimes, it's good to change things up a bit. It makes life interesting...or so our huMom tells us.
