Wordless Wednesday: Autumn Changes

Fall has arrived, The pool is closed and the foliage is turning brown. The days are getting shorter and the weather is perfectly perfect. The Autumnal Equinox is upon us.

As the season’s change, I wonder how the environmental cues affect domestic animals. Since we live in an environment with artificial light, and heat, and cooling, how much of the seasonal changes really affect humans or pets? The dogs are absolutely friskier in the fall and the spring. I don’t know why, but they are. Sofie’s nose changes color between winter and summer (she has what is called Snow Nose- you can read about it here) and her coat gets darker too. Other than that, I don’t think they’re affected much.

How does the change of seasons affect you and your furbabies?

Wordless Wednesday: Sniff Your Family

How fun to spend the day with Aunt B. This is the first time Charles met Aunt B and he quickly decided she is a comfy part of the pack.

I wonder sometimes if family smells similar. Does Charles know that Aunt B belongs to Mommy (we’re sisters)? Do you think that human family’s smell similar? There has been research done that says that humans can tell who their biological family is – but can a dog tell the family of their humans? I think someone needs to find this out. What do you think?

Wordless Wednesday: We Slept Through It!

Yesterday was 4th of July and you know what that means – FIREWORKS! Not only was it going to be a stressful evening but when Mom was walking us to get us tired before dinner THUNDER rolled in. Mom was not sure how we were going to do this evening with all the rumbles from Mother Nature and the crackers used to honor our Forefathers (a double whammy). It didn’t start well because Louise didn’t want to eat all her dinner because of the thunder (though Sofie decided it was OK to finish it for her before Mom caught her).

Mom played nice smooth jazz music for us during the storm. It always helps distract us from the noise. She thinks it is more soothing than classical (which can get quite raucous). And after the storm, we played our evening games. She tried to take us out to potty before it got dark, but as soon as we got in the yard we heard pop pop pop and ran back inside.

Once it got dark, everyone was watching TV and it drowned out most of the crackers and, as you can see from the pictures, Louise and Sofie were able to snooze right through the ‘1812 Overture.’ I was a little concerned but managed to see myself through until I could go ‘night night’ in my downstairs kennel, with the curtain down, and the music up, and some extra treats.

We hope your celebration was quiet and peaceful and full of treats. – Charles, the Mugwump

Wordless Wednesday: Thunk

 Since I have been living in the den while recuperating, my piano can be accessed from the couch-bed or the temporary table that I have set up. So the piano has now become a stepping stone for Charles and the cats to see out the window. I kept hearing “thunk thunk thunk” on the keys (it’s electric so at least I can keep the sound off).

At first, I thought it was a cat trying to play with the blinds (which they love to do). Mini has been sleeping on a blanket I put there for her for awhile, but then I caught Charlie sleeping on the keyboard the other day. I have even seen Louise step on it to look out.

I am not sure that is good for the keys?
