Wonderful Wednesday: Summer Stroll

Taking a stroll on a warm morning. Everyone is happy to be walking. They don’t get to walk much as a pack since Mom went to work outside the house. Charlie is especially happy.

Wonderful Wednesday: Walking 3

Sometimes I need a free hand to be able to pick stuff up. I let them take care of each other. I thread Charles’ leash on Sofie’s, and then Sofie’s leash on Louise’s. As long as I have hold of Louise’s lead since she is the heaviest link in the chain, I find that this works. Sofie hates that Charles pulls on her, so usually, she will sit down and keep him in place (which she did right after I took this shot).

How do you control multiple dogs when you need a free hand?

Monday Mischief: Light Up the Dogs

img_0077

Being December, the fairy garden and Christmas dog are lit up under the DogDaz pines.

It gets dark around 4:30 PM here, so we get to enjoy the twinkling of the holiday lights for a long time in the evening.

The early darkness also means we are walking at a time when many cars are coming home for the evening and people are tired and speeding around the corners. Of course, everything I wear is black and so is Louise. To keep us safer during the walking time the girls wear lights around their necks (maybe I should too?). I definitely think you see Louise better with her glowing red collar, Sofie, not so much because she is blond and it is hidden in her fur.

Do you wear lights when walking in the dark? img_0079

Be safe out there. It’s a zoo!

Wordless Wednesday: Twisted

Charles walks back, forth, in and around Sofie so much that his leash and her’s just become one.

Monday Mischief: 5 Below

Though February usually is the coldest month in the mid-Atlantic, it was 65 degrees many days (welcome to Maryland). January turned out to be the real freezer this year with January 5th being 5 below zero Fahrenheit. That is just too cold for woman or beast. We only take short walks on days like that. There were a few days, mostly with ice and sleet, that I just couldn’t do it at all.

The chart below, which I found on PetPlan.com, came in handy when I was trying to figure out if it was OK for the dogs to be outside and for how long. I never really thought about it much for the big dogs, but with the little guy (15 to 18 lbs) I guess I have to be more careful. The chart says even under 40 degrees could potentially be harmful to a little dog. I think he is heartier than that.

What do you think? At what temperature do you only run out to do your business and come right back in?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

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: Walk Me, Please!!!

 Mommy has not been able to walk us for 40 days now. I am dying. Even though Amanda and Sonya and Danielle all come and take us for walks, I want MOMMY!

Please Mommy, can’t you take that cast off already and walk me. No one walks like you do.

PLEASE, I promise to be good and eat all my dinner.
