Black and White Sunday: Day 58 Group Shot

Day 58 of Mom’s recovery from foot surgery. She went out to get the newspaper and the mail. That is a big walk for her. We anxiously waiting at the door in hopes that maybe she was ready to take us for a walk. But no! She just went inside and lied down again. Mom says that taking pictures of us at the front door is the only way she gets the three of us looking forward. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Monday Mischief: Love Me Some Cat Toys

As the days go by with Mommy stuck in bed because of her foot surgery, I amass a larger and larger stash of cat toys next to her. I love all my little toys. Mom says that I like ‘catnip’ tea, because I suck on every cat toy in the house. Sucking on things makes me feel much better and I figure since it makes me feel better, I will bring them to Mom to make her better.

The Zoo is kind of funny when it comes to toys. Charles steals the biggest toys in the dogbox to play with (sometimes they are bigger than him). Louise likes Charles little tiny tennis balls to chew on (which freaks Mommy out so she watches very carefully to make sure nothing is swallowed). I prefer small soft toys – the smaller the better. Mom says “to each their own,” whatever that means.

Black and White Sunday: Sepia and SunScreen

I know this is a Black and White Sunday but I felt this moment looked better in Sepia tone. Louise and Sofie were relaxing on a sunny morning. I can tell it was morning because the sun is coming from the east. It doesn’t stay long before the trees block it and the yard becomes shaded.

Louise (and Charles) love the sun on their black fur. Sofie, the blond, stays to the shade. When Louise comes inside she feels so warm to the touch I just have to cuddle her.

In the summer, I worry about sunburn with the dogs, so I don’t let them lay out in the sun very long. Dogs like Louise, with thin short hair, are more susceptible to sunburn than long haired dogs, but all dogs can get burnt. Just like my human children during the summer, I apply child-safe SPF 30 to 50 (following the instructions on the bottle). I make sure to cover their noses, earflaps, and tummies, and any places that they are bare. And, I reapply after they go swimming.

Enjoy your Sepia Sunday!

Wordless Wednesday: Beauty As Happiness

Sometimes I am amazed at Sofie’s coat. It swirls and twists in amazing ways. She is a visually beautiful dog. But dogs don’t know how beautiful they are. They have no sense of vanity or visual beauty, those are complex human emotions. If Sofie was a human she would probably have mats in her hair and be unkempt if left to her own devices. I probably would be constantly putting her long blond hair in a braid or pigtails. Dogs don’t get caught up in the visual differences of their species. With no sense of visual beauty, what they see is valued on a different scale than ours.They lack the aesthetic sense of things. How different it would be to not know visual beauty. To experience a sunrise only as an astrological event, not as the deep oranges and reds that bring a new day. To look at a painting that moves you, and not feel moved. Ok, so now I have made myself sad.

But some define Beauty as Happiness. And I know that my dogs experience happy. So then, by this definition, they must be experiencing beauty. I like that. Beauty in the deepest sense. Beauty felt. I know this was a lot of words for a Wordless Wednesday, but do you think dogs experience beauty?

Monday Mischief: The Beggers

The 3 dogs and the cat-dog all want my lunch. It is kind of hard to ignore all the salivating stares when you are trying to have a bite to eat. They always have been beggers, but now that I have limited mobility, they all seem to push me around a lot more. They aren’t getting the exercise that they are used to, and just like me, all they want to do is eat right now it seems.

Oh, those begging eyes, Louise! I know that you want to go for a walk, but it still going to be a while. Good thing that I know how to resist those pitiful stares, well sort of.

(P.S. Do you notice Mini asleep in Charles bed in his exercise pen? She uses it much more than he does. Hahaha)

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Long Lazy DogDay

The sun is starting to really warm the wood on the deck. V has been preparing the deck to be stained so it is clear of furniture and everything else. We can lay down anywhere we want. V is worried that we will ruin the stain with our nails when it finally is done, but Mom says that if you can’t use stuff, then why have it. We are with Mom. Decks are made to be walked on, and laid on, and run across. Have a nice Sunday.
