Last little walk is between 7 and 8 pm. Then we all settle down for the night. We're early birds, up anytime after 6.

Libbie goes to bed pretty much the same time now as she did in the summer. She starts getting really lazy and sleepy around 8 - 8:30. Usually that's when I take her out for a last pee break and then she's in bed by about 9:00 ish. She's so funny. If i'm busy, she'll come and stare at me and whine and go to her crate. She's telling me "mom, it's bedtime!".

The time change throws my dog off. In fact in throws me off too.
He is ready between 8:00 or 8:30 and he wants us to go to bed now. Too early for me. We struggle in a game of will. He persists, strategizes and charms. He wins! I cave. Someday he will get the bed and I will get the crate.

One more reason not to have a crate.

Rose goes to "bed" when I get in bed. Around 10:30pm. She sleeps until we wake up. During the week it is 5:30am weekends around 7am.
Her "bed" is under my nightstand. She roams between the bedrooms and sometimes she would get in her bed but she always ends up under the nightstand. Not sure how I am to accommodate that as she gets bigger. She is 6 months now.

Yup Sierra gives a groan about 8:30 -9:00 no matter what time of the year,that's the signal to go to bed, we are up about 4:30 AM for a walk and breakfast so I can be out the door for work by about 6:30. sleep in about an hour on weekends. I think Lance could sleep a couple hours more if I let him.

The Angels...Lance & Sierra... run free babies. I'll see you again.

chester has his last potty break at 10-10:30 then usually goes to bed around 11ish sometimes even earlier. he wont go to bed unless im in bed. he such a mama's boy, and if i move while hes sleeping he gets right up. hes a very light sleeper, im hoping it changes once he's older.

Roran follows my wife into the bedroom around 830 or 9 she's a nurse so up early. He would start sleeping in the living room as early as 8 once the 2 year old is put to bed and no longer "playing" with him
