Like others have said, if I just leave for a short time, say to drop a child at sport ect the dogs barely acknowledge me when I get back but if I have been gone for a few hours or more its all very exciting when I come home If I have been gone for a weekend its hugely exciting and they follow me everywhere for hours!
So they must have some concept of time since they last saw me.

Kei gets excited to see me again when I've only been outside checking the letterbox lol!
I do think that he has some perception of time though. He walkes OH up every morning at 6:45 on the dot, even when I sleep in.

The bird starts getting excited too, but i think he tells by the noise of neighbours starting.
So...maybe Riley waits til the bird gets excited then goes and sits by the window

Just recently I was away (at a dog show) for much longer than I usually am (4 days) & all the dogs at home went far more berserk when I arrived than they usually do. Two of my dogs don't want to leave my side for long now & one of the cats must think I'm going to go again as she's sticking to me like glue.

Mine also know exactly at what time I get up in the morning, not a peep out of them before that but I get a nose in the face if I'm a few minutes late.
