    DefaultRoutine or not

    Bruce is all about his routine. Up at 7:30am, breakfast then out to potty, walk at 9:00am etc. Today we aren't walking until 10:30 and he is going crazy. What about everyone else do you have a "I like my routine lab," or "I'll just go with the flow lab"?

    They are definitely creatures of habit. There's some variation, but if things are too out of whack, Bella will definitely express her displeasure.

    Definite routine freaks here. If I decide to feed them late, for example I decide to sleep in an extra 30 min on the weekend), they will dance around me, poke me, paw me, then finally give up and throw themselves on the ground with a big disgusted hmmpf. Yep...big time drama queens (even Murray).

    Routine. Some variation is acceptable (potty before food, or food before potty, etc.) but for example the time change is jacking her up. And if I don't get up she's all over me.

    Total routine here...every night after supper the "walkies" dance starts...first the pleading eyes...then the pacing...then if you are sitting, the head on your arm and a little whine...then more pacing. Any move towards the garage door means full on elation...its "walkies time!" Rain - doesn't matter! Gale force winds - doesn't matter! Freezing temps - doesn't matter! After dinner means "walkies! no matter what!

    I can tell the time of day within five minutes from the way Duke acts. Like Lulu, the time change really messed up his routine. Well not HIS routine, just our response to it. ;D

    VERY lucky we have a definitely go w/ the flow lab. Sleep late on the weekends? Thats just fine w/ him...he'll eat breakfast at 7:00 or 10:30...doesn't matter to him. Rain, no walk? No problemo...

    However, he does require his routinely go to sleep with us on the bed...then jump down...and get back up for some mornin snuggling around 5-6 AM til when we get up.

    Food routine--time change is making him bonkers in the AM, super happy in the PM. He's laid back about everything else. :
