Black and White Sunday: The Curious Case of Sofie Bear

Sofie 2020

I thought, as a dog ages, their fur turns gray – Louise’s has.

But Sofie is getting darker.

Her ears, mane, lower back, and tail are all browning.

I tried to research it but could not find any information about this type of color change. When her nose turned from black to pink the loose of pigment was due to something called ‘SNOW NOSE,’ but this is the reverse. She is getting darker. Maybe that is the way the blond dogs turn gray?

Maybe she is ‘Benjamin Button?’

Have you ever seen dogs get darker with age?

Black and White Sunday: Waiting For It

Of all the animals at the DogDaz Zoo, Louise seems to be the one with the most patience.

She is so good at waiting;

  • waiting for Mom to get out of bed;
  • waiting for breakfast;
  • waiting to go for a walk;
  • waiting to go out in the yard;
  • waiting for dinner;
  • waiting for playtime;
  • waiting for me to sit down…

She even has to wait when a human or another dog passes by on a walk (I make her sit and stay then as well).

Wow, I am just one mean Mom.

Ahhh, a dog’s life is full of waiting. Actually, though, I don’t think she minds very much.

She is a very patient soul.

WHAT DO YOU WAIT FOR?

Wonderful Wednesday: Staying Safe With The Ones I Love

If I have to be stuck in quarantine, at least I am blessed to be with the best group of crazy animals on the planet.

Because I worked from home for over 25 years (when I wasn’t on a plane somewhere), I was able to surround myself with a herd of rescues, all who were used to me being available to them as a lap, as a feeder, and a walker. Then, 15 months ago, when I started working in an office, our home life changed totally. I had to bring in dog walkers during the day and had less time to be there for cuddles and care. But, the gift of COVID-19 quarantine brought me back to working from the house once again. And now, I am not sure that they will ever let me go back to the office.

I just read that 54% of the people surveyed said they would like to continue to work from home at least part of the time when they are allowed to return to their workplace. What about you? Do you want to stay home with the puppies?

Wonderful Wednesday: Saddle Up

It is really nice to be able to take more walks with Mom. When the rain breaks (there has been a lot of it this week), we ‘saddle up’ as she calls it, and stroll along the lane.

It is nice to see so many spring flowers, like the rootbeer iris, blooming in the yard. We are eating a lot of grass. Mom thinks it is because this early grass tastes really sweet and we are not about to argue.

The only challenge lately with all this walking is that tons of people we never knew lived in our neighborhood are out with children and bicycles and even worse, puppies!!! Our walks are not the quite strolls that Mom likes. Now they are fraught with having to turn around halfway down the street because dogs we don’t know with people who can’t seem to control them are barrelling towards us. We aren’t always the friendliest to strangers (we have to protect Mom, you know).

What did you do on your Wonderful Wednesday walk?

Monday Mischief: April Review

Mom was around a lot more than usual this month. She said it was due to something called ‘Corona.’

It sure made it nice for afternoon walks.
