In that case, what do you think I should do about her feeding schedule? When I had a normal work schedule I would get up at 7, feed her right then, and then walk her. Then I'd come home at 6, feed her right away, then walk her again. Now I usually get up sometime between 9am and 10am (one of the benefits of having mornings off, lol) and walk her right away. When I come home from work at midnight, I walk her then too.
Feeding her is a little trickier, though. I could feed her right when I wake up, but then that would leave her with a 14-15 hour wait before her next meal , so instead I make her wait until noon for "breakfast." Then I feed her again at midnight when I get home. What would you recommend?
