Off-Ramp | Off-Ramp host John Rabe and contributors share thoughts on arts, culture, and life in L.A.

Cute Dog Photo Alert, or why Rabe doesn’t lose sleep with Daylight Saving Time.

Cara the dog (below) likes to get up at 6am … or 6:30 … or 5:30. Usually, it’s sometime between 6 and 6:30.

However, right now when 6:30 – my preferred waking time – rolls around, she thinks it’s 5:30. This means she doesn’t wake up, shake herself (and all the tags on her collar), walk to my side of the bed and sniff noisily, walk to Julian’s side of the bed and sniff noisily. Shake again. Walk to my side and whine quietly. Walk to his side and stick her nose in his ear… You know the drill if you have a dog.

Alas, this DST respite only lasts for a week or two.
