DogDaz Zoo: Lulu is 12

Louise, aka Lulu Bell, aka BooBoo head, is one of the sweetest dogs once she knows you. From the day this shy, fearful, mange-covered, pup with a collar embedded in her neck, came to the Zoo, she has taught us much about patience and quiet strength.

Happy 12th birthday my sweet girl!!!!

Wonderful Wednesday: Fall Photo Fail

I tried to get a picture of all 3 dogs in the fall montage at the entrance to my neighborhood, but Charles did not like it at all and wanted to go home. He is not one to sit quietly and look pretty and I made the mistake of trying to force him to sit, which ended with him trying to eat my hand (no damage done).

The next day, I got Louise and Sofie to sit in the grass but because Sofie needs to lay down (she can’t sit very long anymore because of her arthritis), she is kind of hidden behind a bush. At least Louise will listen and look at me (sometimes). 🙂

Another DogDaz Photo Fail. Happy Fall!

Monday Mischief: Another Mirror

I caught another moment of mirroring from these two. I actually think it is Charles mirroring Sofie. The act of mirroring another’s position “is a sign of comfort, trust, and rapport.” I think it is the way that Charles shows Sofie that he is in sync with her. I don’t notice Charles doing it with Louise or the cats, but I do notice Sofie and Louise with each other and them with the cats.

I have often talked about mirroring, even between the cats and dogs. It happens way to often for it to be random. What do you think?

Wonderful Wednesday: Bed Time With Charlie

Charles here. Did I tell you that I am the only dog in the zoo that is allowed on the bed? I am super special (or is it because sometimes I am mistaken for a cat?).

The big dogs can’t even get on the bed anymore even if they wanted to because they can’t jump that high and their hips don’t work. Mom has steps for me to climb because I really can’t get up by myself either, but they are little steps for me and the kitties.

Mom sometimes lifts Sofie on the bed in a thunderstorm (all 55 lbs of her) because she gets tired of sleeping on the floor to keep Sofie and Louise calm (not sure it works for Sofie but it does help Mom). Lulu hates being on the bed so Mom doesn’t even try with her 65 lbs of solid muscle.

Me, I love the bed. I have been told that my little 17 lb self becomes the size of a St. Bernard at night. Who, little me?

Monday Mischief: TP Hoarding

Last winter, during the dark months of the lockdown for the humans, they ran out of the precious paper that they use in the room which we always follow them into to sit down. They decided that they were not going to allow something called the ‘supply chain’ to leave them ‘strained without a roll.’ We are not sure what all that means but we are very aware of this new paper mountain landscape that is appearing down the main hall. Do all humans do this?

Wonderful Wednesday: Bloodgrass

Louise here. Since I am the only one that walks with Mom in the morning, she gets lots of pictures of just me. Here I am in the front yard with the beautiful Japanese blood grass. It shows its colors in the fall. Mom waits all year for it to shine. Grammie (now 96) was a very experienced gardener. When she had to leave the big house, for the place she lives now, we took several plants from her garden. Actually, we weren’t taking the blood grass, it came as a volunteer with the purple physosigia. And, we are so glad it did because it is the understated star of the front garden. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Mischief: Panting Troll

Sofie: Just because you think you have the right to go upstairs, Nine, does not mean that I will let you pass!

Nine: You think you can stop me big drooling goofball? I am Nine. I will be so cute that Mom will pick me up and whisk me right over your panting head. 

And so she did. The end.

Monday Mischief: Purrfect Weather

Nine found the open window and is in love with the cool morning air. The blood grass and the purple physostegia are just starting to rise.

Mr. Hare is dressed for all the fun that fall brings.
