My Internal Clock

Do you have an internal clock?
This here is
an example of my dinner routine...
 I sit nearby
I stare
I start trotting around the house and make monkey noises.
I pass through all rooms and grab all toys.
I continue trotting.
I stop at all beds, chew and start trotting and running like mad.
See Chubby running 87 times back and forth behind me?
Now we sit for 87 seconds.
I grabbed my food. That's why I look like I sawed
a ghost.
That's Chubby's routine.
Benny & Lily


  1. In the morning we take turns jumping on HH. We start around 5:00am. We usually get our food around 6:00'

    Have a great day.

    Hugs Bugsy and Knuckles

  2. Oh yeah we have a routine also, sometimes in the evenings tho mom makes us wait a little longer and I have to sound off my pug scream so she cleans her act up!

  3. Pip is the same and she clip clops around and is just darn irritating till she is fed. Her fav line form Little Shop Of Horrors is feed me...feed me NOW. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  4. I have one too. It always says "time for food". Have a great tuesday!

  5. Yeah, my Freddy has an internal clock when it comes time to eat. And Buddy has an internal clock when it comes to waking up in the middle of the night to go potty. Never fails. 2 am.

  6. We have to sit for our breakfasts and dinners too...

  7. We don't have an internal food clock cuz our pawrents free feed us. But we do know when it is bedtime!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. Yes Benny and Lily I too have been blessed with an internal clock. I have breakfast at 6 am which is a meager amount of Fancy Feast...Mom divides on can into 6 parts...so I get 1/6 of a can of FF which is a very small can...just sayin! And I also get 1/4 cup of Purina one at 6 am. By about 3:30 my internal clock's back up battery had gone kaput. Mom can count on me starting to look for her at 3:15...my meow starts out as dearest Mom your sweet baby girl is hungry. Until my inner lioness comes out at 3:30 when I f inally I get another 1/6 can of FF....which keeps me going until bed time (10 pm) when I get another 1/4 cup of Purina
    I'm deprived and mistreated and neglected...as soon as I grow thumbs I'm calling the SPCA
    Hugs madi your bfff

  9. you bet - 4.15 on the dot....the dweeb starts his oh-oh noises which means dinner time

  10. Yes, I DO have an internal clock. It goes off every 10 minutes telling me it is time to eat. Unfortunately my humans have an entirely DIFFERENT clock.
    I also have a mealtime routine - I pant and whine like I am in distress while trotting frantically from room to room. Then I plaster myself on my Mommy's leg until she gets me my food!
    Love Noodles

  11. OMD your INTERNALS clock keeps PAWfect time.

    PeeS... we confess.. WE make Monkey NOISES, TOO!!

  12. Yes Benny- an internal clock is very important to have!

  13. Recently my internal clock has been telling me it is time to get up and play fetch at 2am. Weirdly, the family don't appreciate it?


  14. Breakfast is at 5:30 am and dinner is a 5:30 pm ... during the week. On weekends ... it's whenever and we don't like that so much even though we usually get more treats!

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty & Whitney

    PS ... we also have to sit and wait until mama tells us OK before we can eat!

  15. 87 seconds?? That's like abuse or something!!! I only wait 85 :)))

  16. Sounds like you need a "cocktail hour" with lots of tasty hors d'oevres to tide you over til dinnertime.

  17. You are so cute Benny. My Frenchie flatmate actually takes himself to bed, he'll leave the room and go into a darkened room and lie on a cot mattress. Weird, he is like a civilised toddler or something. He has a bedtime routine. Xx

  18. Our routine is to eat it quick before the others do!

  19. Ha ha Bailey makes monkey noises when Mom & Dad get home, mom calls him monkey-man.
    we all know when 5 oclock comes, Hazel will grab Mom's pants leg and give her heck!

  20. Cody is the one with the internal clock around here. He is the ring-leader. He starts whining and circling and gets Dakota riled up.......then they are relentless!

  21. Yes, I wake up at about 10am and jump on Dads head until he makes me food and a small cup of tea and then at 6pm its food time again, this involves about half an hour of pawing and squeeeking and walking to the kitchen to my food on the counter top, its crazy that the Pawrents don't just let me have the whole bag for me to just eat when I want, sheesh!
    Really cute photos today, Benny you look really adorable sitting, love your routine its madness! Love and Licks from your Furiend Frank XxxxX

  22. We just let her know that it's nearly dinner time. We start lobbying about 45 minutes before dinner, so SHE doesn't forget.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  23. when it comes to meal times we sure do

    urban hounds

  24. Too cute. My kitties start meowing and trip me when their clock goes off. LOL.

  25. We know that as soon as mommy makes Grandma a morning cup of coffee, that we get fed next.

  26. I can tell when it's walk time, even on the weekends when I don't have my people coming home as a cue. I get very wander-y if my people don't feed me on time. Routines, people!

  27. This is an excellent tutorial for younger pups who needs to learn how to tell their Moms that they are hungry

  28. Sounds like a great routine guys! Maybe I should adopt it, I don't have one, I just look sad until someone finally notices me and decides to feed me - sigh! :)

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  29. Lee does similar things. Phod just lays there like he is too weak to stand! Lee and Phod

  30. BOL! I think you might be related to Flattery! That sounds very familiar, even the monkey noises!


  31. K made monkey noises too, Benny! You made me smile!

    Yes, our Duo has a clock, but it's linked to the sunrise and sunset times... And they act just like you, except for the monkey noises. Can we hear them sometime?

  32. Oh yeah! don't we all??! If I don't gets my furst walkie by 7am, I am a total biatch!! I will whine and even sometimes bark. I will not stand for delays in this routine! (I also jump arounds like a bunny when I see it's time to go, butts don't tell anyone...)
    Ruby ♥

  33. Yes! We have that very same thing going on here too...but it is pretty much just Chloe!!

  34. Oh yeah I've got a clock alright....sadly Mom doesn't seem to hear my alarms going off for feeding, outside walks, etc. so I have to give her a poke from time to time so she knows MY TIME is the only time she needs to pay attention to!!!!!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  35. I've got a little word of advice, my friend. Don't act like a monkey. Act like a pig. The squealing always results in exactly what I want :-)

  36. My dogs have an internal clock too - dinner time isn't so bad, but breakfast time is ruff now that it's darker in the mornings. We still get up at 6:30 every day! : )

  37. clocks are good that way we know when we are,xx Speedy
