Sofie here. It’s fall in Maryland. The Cave Crickets, also known as Spider Crickets or ‘Sprickets,’ are starting to invade the garage, and occasionally the house. The cats love to torture them. We find lots of parts and pieces. V and the kids are afraid of them so they put a little cup over them and then call Mom to remove them to the greater outdoors. Sometimes, they even put a sticky note on the cup that says ‘BUG!’
As you can see, I am not in the least bit bothered by these jumpy funny antennaed buggy things. Lately, it seems like someone is bringing them upstairs to the kitchen because Noel seems to be spending a lot of time staring under the stove.
Oh my, Noel, sprickets for supper.
What kind of mischief did you get into today?
When I whine too much, which is like every night Mom says, she takes the brush out and starts to brush me. I hate to be brushed, so I move just out of reach. Sometimes Mom will brush Louise, but her coat is so short, that even though she sheds 24/7/365 days a year, the brush doesn’t do much. Me, on the other paw, has so much fur that you could make another dog. The other day when Mom was brushing me I ran away to Lulu. We held paws in solidarity so that Mom would stop this brush abuse. We girls have to stick together.
PS. That little dodo Charles loves to be brushed. He is just so weird. I would never hold hands with him!

It takes a lot of us to help Mom get ready for bed. You would think that all she needs to do is pull down her covers and jump in, but noooooo! Louise needs 3 little cookies on her bed (or she paces); Charlie needs one and he wants Mini Cooper to go away while he eats it; Sofie wants to know if there are any extra cookies in the nightstand. Noel wants nothing to do with all these dogs and has left to go see if there are any cat treats in the kitchen and Nine is downstairs sleeping in his bed in the laundry room (until about 3 am when he and Mini pick on Noel and wake everyone up). How would Mom ever get to bed without us?
(Yes, Mom collects M&M machines (if you noticed them in the bookcase). Kind of like she collects silly dogs and cats 🙂
