St-aaarrrfff-ing puppies

A while ago hubby and I discovered that we were over-feeding the dogs. He would feed them at 4:30, they would polish it off, and by the time I got up at 7:30 I would feed them again. He solved this this weekend by adding some magnets to the lid of their food bin so we can mark off if they've been fed in the am and pm.

We might be happy with the arrangement, but I know of two little doggies that aren't so impressed. I was sitting here trying to peacefully eat my toast this am and they were giving me the saddest eyes, nudging me, pacing over to their dishes (which I know full well they ate out of this am already).

I'll admit it, I caved when Sasha started bouncing for attention and gave them another half serving each. They seem to be happy now and it might be a bit cruel to cut them off cold turkey like that. (I'm such a pushover!)

In other pet-related news, I'm now able to get rid of my alarm clock. Sasha has taken to trotting in to my room, putting her paws up on the bed and giving off one short bark if I'm not up between 7:30 and 8. She then ducks down and lies on the mat beside the bed. This still scares the crap out of me every time she does it, but is still cute enough that I can't be mad.
