Monday Mischief: Pink Snow

We love the pink snow when it falls. It looks like the white stuff put it isn’t cold. We don’t know if Charles ever saw pink snow before because he tried to eat it. Pink snow makes us happy. Do you have pink snow? This is our friend Amy’s yard (she’s a yellow lab). She has lots of trees that line her drive. We only have one cherry tree and it is little and get’s white flowers, not pink. Pink snow is slippery and Mommy worries that we are going to slip. Mommy always worries.

Monday Mischief: Grazin’ On The Grass

The temperature went from cold to hot in a moment. I didn’t bring water and all the dogs’ did was pant and eat grass on our long walk today. Maybe I have 3 sheep instead of 3 dogs. I wonder if the grass tasted cool and moist, quenching their thirst until we got home to the water.

In case you were wondering, eating grass is fine for dogs. In my review of veterinarian and journal articles, no one really knows (or agrees on) why they do it, but they all say that it is not harmful. Basically, it has no nutritional value (sort of like iceberg lettuce). There is speculation that dogs eat grass when their tummies are upset, which I know is true. Mine have always eaten grass when they want to barf (especially Sofie). But, I also think they like the taste. Squash had a particular onion grass that he preferred each spring on my neighbor’s corner, and I find that Louise enjoys the same grass when it comes up.

The cats like grass too. We actually grow it indoors in hopes they will leave the houseplants alone. It doesn’t keep them from eating everything else, but they have fun with it. I know that the houseplants make the cats barf, but interestingly enough, I don’t find the grass does. Go figure?

My only concern with grass eating is when people starting putting all those chemicals on their lawns (which I hate). I make sure to keep the dogs off those surfaces so that they don’t get chem-paws, and so they don’t ingest the pesticides and other things that are just plain deadly.

Monday Mischief: KneeSpooning

Charles is a big knee-spooner. He gets in the turn of your knees and hangs on for dear life. It doesn’t matter if Mini Cooper or Nine wants the spot. The knees are his. Sometimes I do find Mini and Charles cuddling at the foot of the bed, so he obviously does move at some point.

Do you have a favorite spot on the bed?

Monday Mischief: Rollin’ In A March Storm

The storm they call ‘Stella’ came in with ice and snow and rain and ice and WE ARE OVER IT.

If you can’t have fun in the sun then roll in the snow.

Louise got a new barn coat that finally covers her lower half.

Sofie inherited Lulu’s old red coat that is just a perfect fit,

Charles got a dapper new barn coat too with hood. The hood is detachable and we think it will come off soon. Why do dogs need hoods?

Today is the VERNAL EQUINOX – that means it is supposed to be SPRING in the Northern Hemisphere. Go tell Mother Nature that, will you!

Monday Mischief: SunDogs

First is it is 75 degrees then it is snowing. This is the craziest winter ever. Louise and Charles soak up every sun ray they can get. This must be a black dog thing because blond Sofie is hiding in the shade and it isn’t even hot out yet.

Monday Mischief: 100 Year Spring


Mom had her long-Janes (thermal underwear) on because it was 18 degrees F (-8 C) out, but Mother Nature has been fooling us with warm days and nights all winter. February was the warmest month ever in the Mid-Atlantic and the weather people say this is the earliest spring in over 100 years. The cherry blossoms are out, and they are predicting the National cherry blossoms (in Washington DC – 50 miles away) will peak around March 14 (usually they peak in April). That is just crazy!

Mom is trying to teach Charles how to sit with us for her famous Picture Moments. He does not listen to any commands and while we sit so beautifully and wait for her (applause and treats for Louise and me), he goes and goes and goes. Mom just keeps picking him up and putting him in between us until she can get a shot of all 3 of us together. Maybe by next Xmas he will get what he is supposed to do.

Forsythia, azalea, daffodils, crocus, cherry blossom, and hellebore. Even the maples are budding. Oh my! Official spring is still 3 weeks away.

Monday Mischief: Knee Begging


Louise has been knee begging forever. That is when she quietly places her head on your leg and opens her big brown eyes really wide to say “please!”  This particular picture, looking down from where I am seated, is of her daily (always around 3:30 PM) begging to go for a walk. She gets tired of me sitting at my desk and decides it is time for me to get up and be with her. If I don’t respond she starts knocking my hand up when I am trying to ‘mouse.’ The funny thing is that Squash before her used to do this same thing. He would decide it was time for an afternoon walk and he would push my hand away from the keyboard with his big furry head. Once he passed over the rainbow bridge, Louise started doing this. She pushes my hand, but she is more into placing her head or paws on my leg.

“I wish I could accommodate, but dogs are not on my work schedule until 4:30, Miss Louise. You should know that after 7 years at the Zoo. I do love to look into those beautiful brown eyes, however, so don’t go too far.”
