Black and White Sunday: Super Sniffers

Some dog(s) must have left a very loud message on the swing set down by the river. I am always in awe of the dogs’ incredible noses. Especially, when you have a hound, like Louise. Her nose is never far from the ground tracking something. I call her a ‘Hoover,’ (like the vacuum cleaner). …They possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in us. And the part of a dog’s brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is, proportionally speaking, 40 times greater than ours.(NOVA – Dogs Sense of Smell)

A good sniff is worth a thousand words. Enjoy your Black and White Sunday!

Black and White Sunday: Treat or Treat

Getting this trio’s attention is easiest when there are high-value treats involved. My go-to treat is a training bit made of liver or beef. It makes my hands stink (which grosses me out because I don’t eat meat), but the doggies will do almost anything for them. I like freeze dried training treats made from a single ingredient only. They don’t bother Louise with her sensitive tummy nor Sofie’s allergies and they are only 6 calories for Charlie’s waistline.

This was Halloween night and I was doing everything I could to keep them from going crazy with all the witches, goblins, superheroes, and princesses that came to the door. Treats are treats in any language.

Black and White Sunday: Bathrobe Weather

I am happy that the days and nights have turned cooler. I get hot hot hot in the summer. I’m very happy when the winds change and everything cools off. Mom likes fall too, but she is no longer a fan of cold winter. It hurts her bones. If it would stay fall temperature it would be great, but we heard that big storms are coming this winter. Better get those shovels and the generator ready, Mom. Could you lose little Charles this year in a snow pile? Please, Mom. That would be so much fun. – Sofie Bear

Black and White Sunday: Running Free

Other than our own fenced yard, there are not many places that we can run off leash. There are always so many people around and other dogs that Mom is afraid that we, or she, will get into trouble. Mom takes us down to the very end of the peninsula, we live between 2 creeks off the Magothy River, where she feels comfortable with our antics. If there are no people or animals around then she lets us go because we are locked in on 2 sides by water and the 3rd side by her. This is our favorite free run place because we can chase ducks and geese and cranes and cormorant and still not get in trouble. Once Sofie jumped into the water and Mom had to go in after her, but that doesn’t happen much. Sofie is too short and heavy to pull herself up the bulkhead and Louise hates water. Mom doesn’t let Charles run free here though because she worries that (1) he would drown if he fell in, (2) the Osprey would pick him up quickly, and (3) we would roll him down the grass and throw him in the water.

Running free is great fun and we wish there were more safe places to do it. Mom used to take us to the dog park but there were so many aggressive people and poorly trained dogs that we found it more stressful than fun. We just want to run around with Mom for a little while that’s all.

Do you have a free run space that you like? Where is it?

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: Expansion

I find it amazing how a medium size dog becomes a St. Bernard when it is night time.

Black and White Sunday: Are You Serious?

Louise is a very serious dog. She always has this thoughtful face on. But once or twice a day Louise the puppy comes out. She finds a squeaky toy and goes crazy for about 10 minutes. Then it is back to being serious Lulu.  Are you mostly silly or serious?

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.
