Monday Mischief: That Can’t Be Comfortable

In the annals of ‘That Cannot Be Comfortable,’ I want to add these pictures this week. Sofie is always laying with her head on the leg of the kitchen table. Really? That just can’t be comfortable.

And Louise! I keep buying bigger and bigger beds, yet she always lies with her head on the floor. Now really, Lulu Belle, that cannot be comfortable! (Please ignore my messy office, and yes, that is a giant box of dog toys :-))

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: d’Ball

I wonder sometimes what the dogs actually see when a toy is just sitting there and they look like it is going to jump up and hit them. Sofie’s favorite toys are cat toys. I call them catnip tea. She loves to suck on them. Is there a catnip for dogs? I guess that is CBD or something like it. What is your favorite toy?

Wonderful Wednesday: Snow?

 

So far this year the snow events have been very light to non-existent. The wind, however, is another story. Sofie, and now Charles, are barking at the slightest rustling of the trees. Today it actually sounds like a small freight train coming through the yard. I am not sure when real winter is coming to the Mid-Atlantic this year, but February and March are usually our worst months, so time will tell.

Stay dry and warm.

Black and White Sunday: Still Ducky

This was a partial black and white picture of Lulu from DogDaz in 2014.

Louise loved that silly bird. I hadn’t seen it in years until just the other day.

It mysteriously resurrected itself and was sitting on my office floor.

Still looking as Ducky as ever 6 years later. Go figure?

Wonderful Wednesday: Sofie the ‘Goldilocks’ Bear

Mom! Louise has all the toys and she isn’t sharing.

This picture is from 2013. It cracks me up. Sofie still does this 7 years later. Steps are a great vantage point, and also, it seems her body fits perfectly. I have found over the years, especially because I document almost everything, that behaviors don’t change much. Louise never lies on the steps. Maybe because she is too big? Charles will sit on the steps but I have never seen him lie down. Maybe because he is too small and it would be vulnerable. Sofie’s stair is ‘Just Right.’ Now I know why I named her ‘Sofie Bear,’ because she is just like Goldilocks in the story of the Three Bears.

Monday Mischief: Getting Comfy

We all have different ways to settle down before we take a nap. Louise loves to toss her ears and roll a little to find just that right spot on the bed. Sometimes she covers her eyes with her paws, I am thinking to keep the light out.

Do you have a special ritual to get comfy?

Black and White Sunday: Milky Toes & Sun Flowers (Redux)

On a beautiful 70° in the middle of January, I thought I would revisit a summer post. – Enjoy your Sunday! 

7.31.16Louise stands at the edge of the deck for the longest time. I guess she is surveying her territory. On the other side of the pool is a busy bird feeder and there is always a lot of activity going on. This is a really good vantage point from which to see if the villainous squirrels are stupid enough to come into the area. I feel sorry for the squirrels in our yard because when I let the dogs out – zoom, zoom, zoom – they know just where the squirrels are going to be and they run them up the trees, fences, and power lines.

I love this shot because it really shows off Louise’s milky rear toes. The nails are white in those spots and black everywhere else. These are truly the DOGDAZ of summer.

Have a wonderful black and white Sunday!
