Every day since my husband has been working from home we eat lunch right at 12:00 noon. When we eat we also give Pipper a few pieces of melon as a snack. Well now as soon as my clock chimes 12:00 Pipper will jump right up from a sound sleep and run straight to the kitchen, exactly when the clock chimes. The clock chimes every hour and he doesn't do this the rest of the day, just when it chimes 12:00. Wow, he sure amazes me!!!!!
