Monday Mischief: 100 Year Spring

06 Mar


Mom had her long-Janes (thermal underwear) on because it was 18 degrees F (-8 C) out, but Mother Nature has been fooling us with warm days and nights all winter. February was the warmest month ever in the Mid-Atlantic and the weather people say this is the earliest spring in over 100 years. The cherry blossoms are out, and they are predicting the National cherry blossoms (in Washington DC – 50 miles away) will peak around March 14 (usually they peak in April). That is just crazy!

Mom is trying to teach Charles how to sit with us for her famous Picture Moments. He does not listen to any commands and while we sit so beautifully and wait for her (applause and treats for Louise and me), he goes and goes and goes. Mom just keeps picking him up and putting him in between us until she can get a shot of all 3 of us together. Maybe by next Xmas he will get what he is supposed to do.

Forsythia, azalea, daffodils, crocus, cherry blossom, and hellebore. Even the maples are budding. Oh my! Official spring is still 3 weeks away.

What kind of mischief did you get into today? – Sofie Bear (the poser)

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Charles is new. He still thinks he can beat the picture posing commands. He will soon learn YOU CANNOT AVOID THE PHOTO OPS WHEN YOU’RE A DOGGIE. He’ll get used to it.

    Love and licks,

      Thanks for the vote of confidence in the Mom picture taking purpose.

    Oh, Sofie. I feel your picture-posing pain. My little sister definitely doesn’t have the hang of it yet, so photo shoots take way longer than they should, and Mommy still rarely gets the shot she wants. Oh well. Thanks for sharing your pretty flower pics with us. We spent Sunday in the park admiring all of our pretty flowers, which shouldn’t really be blooming yet . . . but they are. A little surprise from Mother Nature!

      Surprise surprise. Little ones need to learn or no treats for them.
