Wonderful Wednesday: Telling Time By Trees

Louise under the big tree 2020

When I look out on to the backyard, under the big tree, I sometimes see dogs that have gone ahead and left us for the big meadow. Louise remembers. She lies under the tree today just like she did years ago with Squash (above circa 2011). Nowadays, Sofie and Charles lie there with her.

The trees have always sheltered me and taken care of this yard and provided homes for so many critters. In the last month, many of my neighbors have removed over 10 old-growth trees, for varying reasons. These landscape changes, though needed, make me sad. I tell time by trees. As they disappear, I fear I will lose track of time.

Wonderful Wednesday: Do You ‘Boop?’

There is something about a pet’s nose. It makes you just want to take your finger and go ‘Boop!’ Do you ‘Boop?’ It is easy to do around the Zoo since we have a lot of head butting animals who come and ask for it.

Wonderful Wednesday: Weaving Tails of Woe

Of course it would make sense if they just stayed in line, but NO!

Sofie has decided that she wants to go back under and over and through. 

In the end, Mom always finds a way to get them moving along.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

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?
