Almost everyone lives their life by a schedule. A routine. You set your alarm to wake up at a certain time. You eat lunch at a certain time. You return home from work at a certain time. There can be something comforting about having a schedule. Routines are important for pets, too. Having a regular schedule helps them feel secure. Dogs don't need a watch. They seem to have an internal clock. Is your dog waiting at the door for you to come home every day? How does he know that you are just about to walk through the door?

As I write this, snow flurries dance outside my office window, while my 20-year-old cat, Seren, curls up on a blanket on the desk under the lamp's warm glow. Magical-Dawg adores playing outside in cold weather, but could easily overdo if I didn't limit outdoor excursions. It's not just about the cold and potential for frostbite or hypothermia.
