The newest arrival to our household, Misty, has really settled in nicely. What a nice dog she is! Aside from some of Max's (usual) grouchiness, which she shys away from, she continues to get along with all the dogs. And when one of us arrives home, Misty is right with the crowd happily greeting us. As I said before and will keep saying, she's a true gem!
The weekend did rob us of one hour of sleep with the change to daylight saving time. The only one in our household that won't have to do any adjusting to the new time is Cissy. She has an inner clock that cannot be changed. The last time change 6 months ago meant that Cissy started barking at 4 AM. Sometimes she wants to go outside, sometimes it's to let us know the water bowls are empty and she wants a drink. Other times it seems that it's just to let us know it's time to get up. But then there are the times I can't help but wonder if it's her way of simply telling me that there's a rumbling in her stomach and she wants to be fed. Whatever it is, we've not been able to change her inner clock. So at least until the next time change when Cissy starts barking, it's at the time we usually get our day started.
