Should all the world’s clocks fail, never to be repaired, I would still wake up at the same time every day. A time I like to call “Eko’s hungry o’clock.” People make a big deal out of Daylight Savings, but in this apartment Eko’s stomach is the only clock that counts. In the fall we were told that we would get an extra hour of sleep! But it was not so for those of us with pets.
Daylight Savings? That’s nice, I’m hungry now
Yesterday’s time change also caused a few issues. While Eko certainly didn’t mind being fed an hour earlier than expected, he assumed it meant that he got to double dip. Dinner for Eko is normally at 6:00 pm, so yesterday after eating dinner #1 at what his stomach thought was 5:00 pm, Eko thought he was entitled to dinner #2 an hour later. He patiently sat by his bowl for about five minutes before sulking back to the couch. The good news however is that the change in time means we will have more light for adventures. And there is nothing Eko loves more than romping in the sun.
Smiling because brighter days are on the way!
Were any of your pets thrown off by the change?
