For people, Mondays cast a long shadow over the rest of the week. But what about for our pets?
That’s right, I went with the shadow reference just so I could post this cool photo I took of us. Can you guess where the camera is?
On the weekends my phone alarm is turned off, so Saturday and Sunday begin whenever my dog alarm (no off button) decides to get me up. Our lazy weekend strolls usually end up at the dog park where tons of friends are waiting to play. But on Monday, the week begins with a jarring alarm for us both and our morning walk is much quicker. There is work to be done! Even on the occasional Monday we do make it to the dog park, it’s just not the same.
A key component of Eko’s favorite game, “Romping with friends,” is friends! Unfortunately there aren’t many of those to be found on Monday’s at the dog park.
And just like many people, Eko sometimes has trouble getting his brain started on Monday mornings.
Remembering where to stand when eating breakfast isn’t always easy for a dog on Monday morning
Monday’s also mean that Eko’s worst enemy, my computer, gets turned back on. He doesn’t like the competition for my attention! However, Mondays aren’t all bad for a pup. While I type away, Eko gets to keep busy with a treat puzzle or a Kong toy.
Working for your food still counts as working, right?
Eko may not check the calendar to see what day it is, but I can definitely notice subtle differences in his personality and his expectations based on my Monday routine. I know Eko is not alone amongst his four-legged brethren. Does your pet act differently when Monday rolls around?
