Monday Mischief: Remembering Falls Past

Charles Fall 2017

Louise and Sofie Fall 2015

 

Louise Fall 2011

 

Squash Fall 2007

Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moor.
Irish proverb

Last week it was summer and this week it turned to true fall: welcome The Autumnal Equinox.

Fall was always Squash E Bears perfect time. His winter coat would start to bloom and he really looked like the perfect cuddle bear. Gosh, I miss that dog every day. I do love the current pack but there was something about Squash that even made people stop their cars in the middle of the street and ask about him. It was not really how he looked, though he was a formidable giant ball of fluff, he exuded this gentle energy that could be felt all around.

Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the crisp air, the smell of cider, and the pumpkin. I love how the animals start to gather all their hordes of food for winter, scurrying up and down the trees. And the smell of wood fires burning. Fall doesn’t last very long in the Mid-Atlantic anymore, we tend to go from summer heat to winter cold very quickly. So, I breathe in every moment I can get.

Oh my, I think I need to go make an apple pie. What do you love most about fall?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Mini & Ratso

I never know where Ratso will be. Sometimes on a ledge, sometimes in the cave. All I know is that Mini Cooper likes to have him around.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Happiness

You know when your animals are happy and when they are not. Louise was in the happiest of moods when I took this shot. She wanted something, of course, usually a treat. I love to see them smile. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Escape to Who Knows Where



Louise usually holds all the leashes while I pick up stuff. But Charles just keeps marching forward.

I thread Charles’ leash on Sofie’s and Sofie’s leash on Louise; Lulu being the heaviest and the most responsible of the three.

Well, that didn’t work today.

Don’t worry, they didn’t get far. They get confused when they don’t feel the weight on the other end of the lead. I really don’t know where they would end up, but I am too afraid to find out. I would hope that it would be home, but who knows.

Caturday: Introducing Freddie Purcury

We have a new grandcat, his name is Freddie Purcury. He is about 9 weeks old. My other grandcat, Hazel, seems to be tolerating him so far. What a bundle of energy. Such a ginger-boy! Love love love love love! K8 is head over heels in love with him. I think he is going to be one of those ‘always in trouble’ little boys. How fun!

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: A New Type of Treat Mat

Mom bought Charles this mat. It is called a LickiMat. She thought that it would keep him busy because he is constantly begging for more and more treats and never seems satisfied. He was not impressed at all. But I sure like the peanut butter that he left in the cracks. There are many different foods that you can put on the mat, peanut butter, of course, but also just wet dog food, or pumpkin, or even apple sauce or mashed veggies. So far, when Charles licks most of it off, he wants something more substantial, like a Busybone. Mom is going to try a bunch of different things to see which ones work best. Do you have any ideas?

She actually bought another mat just for me, but I am too busy with Charles. She read that it could help me stay calmer (fat chance with that!)- Sofie Bear

Wonderful Wednesday: August Review

Did August really even happen this year?

Can you find Stella? She looks like Mini Cooper but she is brownish not gray. Let me know in the comments what day you think you see her.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Best Fiends

(No, I did not make a mistake in the title.)

When there is no food involved, you would think that Sofie and Charles actually liked each other. Charles pretty much is oblivious and just wants to hang wherever the big dogs are. Sofie on the other hand really doesn’t want him around her because she worries that he will take her things and because his little dog frantic energy (zoom zoom zoom) freaks her anxious self out and she just wants him to stop.

But, for a moment or two, all is quiet. These are good moments.
