Wordless Wednesday: They’re Back

Louise and Sofie finally returned from Sonya’s Dog Farm after 2 weeks away. This means that Charles and Mini Cooper no longer are the only two critters that wanted to be on Mommy while she recuperates. The big dogs jumped right up and made themselves at home. Charles decided that it was best to seek the highest point on the bed for safety (Mom’s foot pillow). Isn’t Mom lucky that she has all of us taking care of her and making sure that she is protected on all sides?

Monday Mischief: Harold and Maude Return

Every year Harold and Maude, or their children or grandchildren, have come back to nest in the front yard. Ducks do that. The experts at Ducks Unlimited say that ducks “imprint information about their home breeding and wintering areas and use navigational cues to return to them. Adult female ducks often return to former breeding sites.”

We have been blessed for the last 16 year’s as we have watched Harolds and Maudes waddle around the grounds, swim in the pool, and ultimately waddle their ducklings down to the river.

Luckily the ducks are in the front yard. The dogs would love to chase them, and do roust them if they fly into the back or worse in the pool, but the front is leash only territory so the duckies are ‘kind of’ safe. They must feel at home since they keep coming back.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Small Pleasures.

Charles is a happy sort. He really is enjoying that Mom has to work lying down, so he gets to snuggle up close and help her type. Small pleasures.

Happy Sunday.

Caturday: Noel Spring 17

Mom rolled into the kitchen and this is what she found. Nono hiding behind the curtain in the cat window.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wordless Wednesday: Charles, 4 Months & Forever

Charles has been at the Zoo for 4 months now. You would think he’s been here his whole 8 1/2 years. He has made it clear that he is home and we are committed to being there for him for the rest of his days. Charles had at least 4 different homes in his life and has a bite history. He definitely suffers from ‘little dog’ syndrome. I am wondering, however, if he might have trouble seeing (I notice cataracts) and could that be driving some of his ‘nippy’ behavior? He is teaching all of us ‘little dog’ ways and we are teaching him how to run with the pack. He makes us all smile (well, except maybe Sofie, who thinks he is a pest). I never really thought about adding a small dog to the pack, that level was reserved for cats, but Charlie is definitely growing on me.

 Happy Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Pink Snow

We love the pink snow when it falls. It looks like the white stuff put it isn’t cold. We don’t know if Charles ever saw pink snow before because he tried to eat it. Pink snow makes us happy. Do you have pink snow? This is our friend Amy’s yard (she’s a yellow lab). She has lots of trees that line her drive. We only have one cherry tree and it is little and get’s white flowers, not pink. Pink snow is slippery and Mommy worries that we are going to slip. Mommy always worries.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Puzzle Pieces


Little and Big taking a nap.

They kind of look like pieces of a puzzle waiting to be fit together.

Charles is lying pretty close to Louise, which means she must really like him.  She doesn’t usually like any of the other animals too close for more than a few moments. On the other hand, if she could crawl into my lap and stay there all day, she would.

 HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
