Misha loves eating.  She really loves eating.  I feed her 3 times a day (2 meals and a small lunch), plus the little things she gets during the day.  So, you would think she would be satisfied.

Then, explain this…

I feed Misha dinner somewhere between 4:45 and 5pm.  Misha minds her own business until 4:35.  At that time, everyday, she gets up from whatever she is doing and she lays down facing me.  And, then her ears start to quiver.  Her whole body shakes until the moment I get up to get her dinner.

It isn’t a health issue.  It’s not low blood sugar.  She never shakes during any other time or day or before any other meal.  She is an incredibly clever dog that figured out that she can manipulate people if she looks pathetic enough.

She knows exactly what time it is and knows exactly when to start shaking.  I don’t even need to look at the clock.  If she’s shakin’, it’s 4:37!.

I have no idea where she gets her cues from.  We do watch the afternoon news.  Maybe she has her shakes timed to the end of the commercial break.

Please tell me other dogs are as crazy as mine.
