Wordy Wednesday: Día de los Muertos




We love celebrating the Mexican holiday “Día de los Muertos,” the “Day of the Dead.” Mom made us all wear these cool skull scarves. I think it has something to do with celebrating our ancestors. Mom says that all the animals that came before us have just run ahead and are waiting for us to catch up. On a foggy day, if you look real hard, you might be able to see them looking back or smell their scent on the wind. How do you celebrate your ancestors?

Wordy Wednesday: Lulu Turns 9

Where does the time go? My Halloween baby turns 9 years young today. It is hard to believe that this little shy puppy that was so neglected, turned into this amazing dog. Louise has a special way about her. She is stoic and it is hard to know if she is hurting or in distress. She is very gentle with her cats and is kind to her pesty pack mates. She rarely gets angry with Sofie, though there are many times that she could. In the last few months, she has become very ‘Mommy, Mommy,’ as I call it. She does not leave my side. I am not sure if that is about me, or about her. The world outside is still a difficult place for her, and she will always have that ‘fearful’ dog anxiety, but together we have learned to enjoy safe places and scary people and animals. I thoroughly enjoy her company and have been blessed with her presence.

Happy birthday, Miss Louise. You have melted my heart.

Wordy Wednesday: Looking Out & Looking In

Looking Out: The only time I am able to get a decent picture of the trio seems to be when they are at a door. Here they are helping me prepare for the upcoming holiday. They are watching me put out the dog and cat skeletons and all the DogDaz tombstones as we turn the yard into a Halloween graveyard.

Looking In: The back door is another opportunity to get the 3 together in a shot. They want to come inside after playing in the yard. I love the intense looks on Louise and Sofie’s faces. They seem to be staring right at me to say, “Please, Mommy, let us in and give us treats.” I never know what Charles is looking at (Bark Out Loud).

How do you capture the best shots of your furballs?

Wordless Wednesday: No Room

I must be crazy to be pushed out of my own bed by these two mongrels. Pretty soon they are going to start picking what TV shows I watch at night. Bark Out Loud!

Wordy Wednesday: Fungiiiiii!!!!

As the season changes the mushrooms seem to take hold on our walk. All types of mushrooms are appearing on peoples lawns. It is a lovely display of fairy circles and wild spores. Lulu likes to water them mostly. They are bigger than Charles and they scare him a little so he tries to avoid them if he can. Sofie just sniffs. Don’t let the furries eat them if you don’t know what they are, they can be deadly. And don’t eat them yourself unless you are knowledgeable about what you have picked. I think they are cool to look at but don’t tend to pick my own. Do you pick your own fungi?

Here is a great field guide if you want to learn more: Field Guide to Common Macrofungi in Eastern Forests and Their Ecosystem Functions

*Did you notice that I changed the blog title to “Wordy” Wednesday from “Wordless” since I tend to talk so much? Bark Out Loud! Enjoy your day!
