Wordless Wednesday: Pool Helper, I’m Not!

Though it is over 100 degrees today here in the mid-Atlantic, the days are getting shorter and the nights mostly cooler. The leaves from the big tree and the pines are starting to clog the pool skimmers, so Mom is thinking about closing the pool for the season. You can see how much help I give her when she is doing her early morning cleaning and chemical experiments. When to close the big blue pond is always a dilemma because it is so pretty to look at and it means that another season has come to an end. What do you think? Close or keep cleaning the leaves out?

Too many words for a Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy! – Sofie (I had the heat) Bear

Black and White Sunday: Bathrobe Weather

I am happy that the days and nights have turned cooler. I get hot hot hot in the summer. I’m very happy when the winds change and everything cools off. Mom likes fall too, but she is no longer a fan of cold winter. It hurts her bones. If it would stay fall temperature it would be great, but we heard that big storms are coming this winter. Better get those shovels and the generator ready, Mom. Could you lose little Charles this year in a snow pile? Please, Mom. That would be so much fun. – Sofie Bear

Wordless Wednesday: Autumn Changes

Fall has arrived, The pool is closed and the foliage is turning brown. The days are getting shorter and the weather is perfectly perfect. The Autumnal Equinox is upon us.

As the season’s change, I wonder how the environmental cues affect domestic animals. Since we live in an environment with artificial light, and heat, and cooling, how much of the seasonal changes really affect humans or pets? The dogs are absolutely friskier in the fall and the spring. I don’t know why, but they are. Sofie’s nose changes color between winter and summer (she has what is called Snow Nose- you can read about it here) and her coat gets darker too. Other than that, I don’t think they’re affected much.

How does the change of seasons affect you and your furbabies?

Monday Mischief: Our New Dog Walker

 mm11-7-16

We have a new dog walker. Her name is Amanda and her service is called Synergy Pets. Rachel, from Simplifido, moved away and now Amanda is our new friend. I have not figured out that she is actually the dog walker, so I go with her. Remember, about a year ago, I stopped walking with Rachel. No matter what she did, I would not budge. But so far, Amanda seems to know how to get me up and walking. I don’t want Louise to have all the fun; until it starts raining, or snowing, or the wind is blowing too hard, or something scares me…. you know what I mean. – Sofie Bear

Photos by Amanda to Mom at work to show her that I actually went for a walk.

What mischief did you get into today?

Wordless Wednesday: Finally Fall

Finally Fall

 Mom isn’t very good at being wordless, though the pictures could stand on their own.

But, we love the fall. Leaves in the water. Crisp clean air. The shadows change.

What do you love about fall?

  Hope you are having a great Wednesday.

Wordless Wednesday: Kissing Summer Good Bye

WW 9.21.16 End summer

Tomorrow (September 22) at 10:21 am EDT it will officially be Autumn for us (the Autumnal Equinox). How can that have happened already? Wasn’t it just spring? There is nothing more incredible than the changing of the seasons. Mom loves autumn best of all. She loves the crisper days, and the fall tones of orange, yellow, brown and red. As the plants end their growth cycles and creatures go south or under ground, it makes us aware of the renewal that will come on the other side of winter. Sofie and I are both born in fall. Maybe that is why Mom loves this season so much? I was born on Halloween and Sofie on Thanksgiving (or at least that is what Mom tells us). As we kiss summer good bye, we say thank you to the earth for the wonderful colors, warm waters, butterflies and birds. Bye Bye, Summer. – Love, Louise

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Mischief: Drawing Boundries

IMG_3589

We were walking in the neighborhood and noticed that some people are really clear about where their property ends and their neighbor’s starts.  Mom said that trees don’t care about boundary lines.  The leaves fall freely where they may and don’t get all caught up in what side they are on.  We like that idea.  Animals don’t care about property lines either.  That is why humans define our space with fences and such, because we would be like the leaves and go everywhere.  If there is a squirrel in your yard, we are going to chase it no matter what!  That only seems right.
