Gotcha!

I feed the dogs between 3:30 and 4 each day. Morgan starts campaigning about 2:30 but I do my best to ignore her. When the magic time finally rolls around Rob feeds Morgan and Mac in the kitchen or on the porch and I take the others to the garage to eat.
Yesterday Rob took a nap. The magic hour came and he was still asleep so I prepared Morgan and Mac's meals and fed them on the porch.
Then I left them in the house and took all the others to the garage where I fed them. After they ate I sent them into the back yard.

As I was washing out their bowls and filling the water bowls, Rob walked into the garage and told me he'd finished feeding the two girls. I just looked at him for a minute and then asked if he had just fed Morgan and Mac. He said yes. I told him that I'd already fed them and he said they didn't tell him they'd eaten. They cleaned their bowls.
We both laughed about it. When I asked Morgan about having two dinners, she answered with a big belch. Mac had nothing to say but did need a few extra outings during the evening.
I think they both had a good laugh at us for our miscommunication. Gotcha Dad.

This can happen with Meg's breakfast. Paul will feed her when he gets up and if I get up later she sometimes tries it on with me to get me to feed her again! It is amazing how accurately dogs can tell the time when it comes to mealtimes!

Mom always feeds us about 8 in the evening. Dad helps distribute everything. Now how do we get Dad to give Mom a break and feed us earlier and then not tell Mom so she can feed us at our regular time. You guys lucked out!

Bwahaahaa, WTG Girls...two dinners.

We eat about the same time and start lobbying at 2:30 as well. However we get messed up when Daylight Savings starts and ends...sheesh!

Must be something with the seniors!!! Phantom won't touch food all day, sleeps most of the day, but about 3:00 in the afternoon, he comes to life and figures it must be dinnertime. He follows Mom everywhere in hopes of something good. Now if ONLY this meant he would eat his dinner it would all be good. Nope, most of the time he just walks away from his dish hoping for something better:(

Lightning and Ciara thinks a double dinner sounds wonderful.

Good job, grrls! It's only Momma who feeds us, so I don't get that to happen.
