In one of the Rhodesian Ridgeback groups there was discussion about how hard it will be for the dogs to change their eating time. What? Why do they have to change their eating time? We never changed times and made Crosby wait an hour longer. Part of that would have given her stress and one of the things that I had read was that stress could add to her health problems. She would remind us when it was time for her to her eat and she would do it almost to the minute of the time. Why do people want to stress out their animals? Maybe not a big deal, but to ridgebacks, eating is a big deal.Are my pets going to know to stay asleep an hour longer and not bug me to get up and feed them breakfast? Didn't think so....
Enjoy it while you can. I used to be able to go back to sleep. Now I just get up because I know I will not go back to sleep.I am going to spend my extra hour laying in bed thinking about things instead of falling back to sleep like I want to. Then I will fall back to sleep and re-enter REM sleep just in time for the wife, a child, or a dog to wake me up again. Good times.
I wish I could do that. My sleep is determined by bladder capacity, and once I'm up, I'm up. Sometimes I get a short cat nap in the afternoon, but not today.My second youngest daughter came into the kitchen this morning, looked at the oven clock and said "Oh no! I woke up early! Ugh, I hate daylight savings!" then went right back to bed.
