Black and White Sunday: Cooperative Gazing

A rare moment with Noel, Nine, and Mini Cooper all looking out the door probably at a squirrel or bird on the deck.

It is not often that these 3 do anything together, and definitely not cooperatively. According to my research, there may exist a very loose dominance hierarchy amongst a group of cats, but they do not form an interdependent hierarchy as dogs do. That means that they do not have a pack mentality, though they can gang together for survival, usually around food (hence feral cat colonies in the wild). The other interesting thing I learned today is that cats have relatively limited ability for complex visual signally, which we see in other animals that form social groups, because cats largely developed as solitary hunters, without the need for complex social interaction between each other. Not having this signally ability can lead to more fighting (basically they don’t understand what the other wants). It is all starting to make sense to me now…..

Black and White Sunday: Still The Same, Sort Of

A look back at 2017. Nothing much has changed over the last 3 years. Well, maybe they are all a little fatter and more demanding. But then again, so am I.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Black and White Sunday: d’Ball

I wonder sometimes what the dogs actually see when a toy is just sitting there and they look like it is going to jump up and hit them. Sofie’s favorite toys are cat toys. I call them catnip tea. She loves to suck on them. Is there a catnip for dogs? I guess that is CBD or something like it. What is your favorite toy?

Black and White Sunday: Still Ducky

This was a partial black and white picture of Lulu from DogDaz in 2014.

Louise loved that silly bird. I hadn’t seen it in years until just the other day.

It mysteriously resurrected itself and was sitting on my office floor.

Still looking as Ducky as ever 6 years later. Go figure?

Black and White Sunday: Milky Toes & Sun Flowers (Redux)

On a beautiful 70° in the middle of January, I thought I would revisit a summer post. – Enjoy your Sunday! 

7.31.16Louise stands at the edge of the deck for the longest time. I guess she is surveying her territory. On the other side of the pool is a busy bird feeder and there is always a lot of activity going on. This is a really good vantage point from which to see if the villainous squirrels are stupid enough to come into the area. I feel sorry for the squirrels in our yard because when I let the dogs out – zoom, zoom, zoom – they know just where the squirrels are going to be and they run them up the trees, fences, and power lines.

I love this shot because it really shows off Louise’s milky rear toes. The nails are white in those spots and black everywhere else. These are truly the DOGDAZ of summer.

Have a wonderful black and white Sunday!

Black and White Sunday: So-Nose

A soulful Sofie at the top of the stairs. They love it when I come up the stairs and they can be eye to eye with me. I never realized until now that the pink of her nose makes a perfect heart shape.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: And the Stockings Were Hung…

The animal stocking are always hung so that they can’t get to the contents, or so we hope. I think that Mini, Sofie, and Louise have other plans.

Did you get something new for the holiday? The dogs got some cool new chew bones and the cats got these neat catnip mice in weird wire balls.
