    I think they have a great body clock!  ;D Piper knows exactly when it’s dinner time, with her walks it’s different as we don’t go out at the same times each day  🙂

    Mine don’t really tell the time, they know they get fed after Emmerdale. The tune comes on at the start both dogs howl, at the end they both bark for food ;D
    They pick up on what we do, like if you always go for a wee before taking them out or pack more poo bags in your bumbag etc.

    What mine have learnt is who is on my mobile by the ring tone 😀

    Fritz knows when it’s Daddy R on the phone cause of different ring tone  ;D
    He also knows difference between mon – fri and weekend…. cause a) I get up mon – fri before 7.30…. b) I get dressed before 10.30 mon – fri  😀

    I always liked reading about Bev’s pack knowing instinctively she’d be on her way home… am sure my cat Teddie used to be the same… is magic  ;D

    my bonnie does the ‘mummys nearly home’ thing on uni days when i am home at a regular time lol !!!

    they also cued into walk or no walk now to stop them firing off madly 🙂

    dogs can definately tell ‘a time important to them’ 😀

    Just come and watch Honey at half 4 while she does her ‘getting ready for tea’ routine – involves a lot of following my mum around  :-[

    She also knew when we got to my sisters!! About 2 roads away and she getting all excited – nothing familiar as far as im aware and only second time we been here! Probably felt my relief at making it in one peice!

    ahh now Fritz knows when we are within 1 mile of the heath and when we come off the motorway to Suz’s nans.. and when we are turning into our road… but timings.. that’s different

    depends in what sense …they certainly have a body clock…they also scent the air ..even in the car…my lot know when i turn into the village even if they curled up fast asleep and it been an ‘unknown’ journey…and they now the route to walk areas…recognise roundabouts and other makers etc…and i swear to doG that gunner counts the number of times the indicators go on and how many left and rights have been taken  ;D

    they know tele themes mean that it an out time or a play time etc with Mo but they also know that if they hear the theme out of the normal time…as in she watches it on a rerun then the normal habit doesnt apply…so they are aware of ‘timing’ in that sense…
