Wonderful Wednesday: Sofie Turns 11

Sofie Bear turns 11 years young tomorrow. How did that happen so fast?

I love this goofball! She teaches me so much every day.

Happy Birthday!

Wonderful Wednesday: Save Us from the Brush

When I whine too much, which is like every night Mom says, she takes the brush out and starts to brush me. I hate to be brushed, so I move just out of reach. Sometimes Mom will brush Louise, but her coat is so short, that even though she sheds 24/7/365 days a year, the brush doesn’t do much. Me, on the other paw, has so much fur that you could make another dog. The other day when Mom was brushing me I ran away to Lulu. We held paws in solidarity so that Mom would stop this brush abuse. We girls have to stick together.

PS. That little dodo Charles loves to be brushed. He is just so weird. I would never hold hands with him!

Wonderful Wednesday: Nighttime Helpers

It takes a lot of us to help Mom get ready for bed. You would think that all she needs to do is pull down her covers and jump in, but noooooo! Louise needs 3 little cookies on her bed (or she paces); Charlie needs one and he wants Mini Cooper to go away while he eats it; Sofie wants to know if there are any extra cookies in the nightstand. Noel wants nothing to do with all these dogs and has left to go see if there are any cat treats in the kitchen and Nine is downstairs sleeping in his bed in the laundry room (until about 3 am when he and Mini pick on Noel and wake everyone up). How would Mom ever get to bed without us?

(Yes, Mom collects M&M machines (if you noticed them in the bookcase). Kind of like she collects silly dogs and cats 🙂

Wonderful Wednesday: Polite Paws

I think it is funny that Louise crosses her paws when she is laying down. There is actually a scientific term for that behavior called “polite paws.” Some behaviorists say that it is a way that animals (yes cats do it too) are trying to communicate with us. I think it is really just for comfort, like humans crossing their legs. Lulu definitely looks relaxed when she does it. She is a very polite dog, that is fur sure.

Do you have polite paws?

DogDaz Zoo: Lulu is 12

Louise, aka Lulu Bell, aka BooBoo head, is one of the sweetest dogs once she knows you. From the day this shy, fearful, mange-covered, pup with a collar embedded in her neck, came to the Zoo, she has taught us much about patience and quiet strength.

Happy 12th birthday my sweet girl!!!!

Wonderful Wednesday: Fall Photo Fail

I tried to get a picture of all 3 dogs in the fall montage at the entrance to my neighborhood, but Charles did not like it at all and wanted to go home. He is not one to sit quietly and look pretty and I made the mistake of trying to force him to sit, which ended with him trying to eat my hand (no damage done).

The next day, I got Louise and Sofie to sit in the grass but because Sofie needs to lay down (she can’t sit very long anymore because of her arthritis), she is kind of hidden behind a bush. At least Louise will listen and look at me (sometimes). 🙂

Another DogDaz Photo Fail. Happy Fall!

Wonderful Wednesday: Bed Time With Charlie

Charles here. Did I tell you that I am the only dog in the zoo that is allowed on the bed? I am super special (or is it because sometimes I am mistaken for a cat?).

The big dogs can’t even get on the bed anymore even if they wanted to because they can’t jump that high and their hips don’t work. Mom has steps for me to climb because I really can’t get up by myself either, but they are little steps for me and the kitties.

Mom sometimes lifts Sofie on the bed in a thunderstorm (all 55 lbs of her) because she gets tired of sleeping on the floor to keep Sofie and Louise calm (not sure it works for Sofie but it does help Mom). Lulu hates being on the bed so Mom doesn’t even try with her 65 lbs of solid muscle.

Me, I love the bed. I have been told that my little 17 lb self becomes the size of a St. Bernard at night. Who, little me?

Wonderful Wednesday: Bloodgrass

Louise here. Since I am the only one that walks with Mom in the morning, she gets lots of pictures of just me. Here I am in the front yard with the beautiful Japanese blood grass. It shows its colors in the fall. Mom waits all year for it to shine. Grammie (now 96) was a very experienced gardener. When she had to leave the big house, for the place she lives now, we took several plants from her garden. Actually, we weren’t taking the blood grass, it came as a volunteer with the purple physosigia. And, we are so glad it did because it is the understated star of the front garden. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Wonderful Wednesday: 1st Day of Autumn Fun

There is nothing more enjoyable than a fall day on the deck.

Even Nine and Mini want to get in on the action from inside.

Happy Autumn!
