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: I Scream, U Scream, We All Scream, 4 Ice Cream

Mommy had some cashew milk vanilla with cookies crushed in it.It looked really yummy.

I want it. I want it. Give me. Give me. Give me. I want it now!

Mommy is the meanest human. She never shares her food with me.

Mean Mean Mean!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wordless Wednesday: Sniff Your Family

How fun to spend the day with Aunt B. This is the first time Charles met Aunt B and he quickly decided she is a comfy part of the pack.

I wonder sometimes if family smells similar. Does Charles know that Aunt B belongs to Mommy (we’re sisters)? Do you think that human family’s smell similar? There has been research done that says that humans can tell who their biological family is – but can a dog tell the family of their humans? I think someone needs to find this out. What do you think?

Monday Mischief: Working on the Chain Gang

Charles loves Louise. If she sniffs something, he sniffs it. If she pees on it, he has to pee on it. He follows her so closely sometimes that it bothers me, because he fits perfectly under her torso which freaks her out, and because he doesn’t move when she is peeing, which grosses me out.

Something very interesting must have come down the center of the road last night and since the dogs’ smellers are 25X more powerful than mine, they know what it is, but I sure don’t. Sofie is usually my street sniffer and mostly it is right in the center. Sometimes I have to pull her to the side so she doesn’t get run over by a car. The only thing I can think of is that it must be the foxes who walk down the center ridge (I don’t know why) and maybe they pee as they go.

With 3 dogs, it is very easy to run out of hands or feel like you are on a medieval rack when everyone wants to move along (in different directions usually) and you need to stop and pick something up (after getting a bag out of the pouch, unfolding it, and bending down… you get the picture) My answer is a CHAIN GANG (but a happy one not a bunch of prisoners). Since Mr. Charles wants to keep going and nothing stops him, I loop him onto Sofie’s lead. Then Sofie holds him back (since he is a little afraid of her) and I loop her onto Louise, who in most cases will stay when I tell her to. Louise is the heaviest and strongest of the 3 so I can keep control down the line.

Sniff and pee – Pee and sniff – What kind of mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz remembers and salutes the victims and survivors of the September 11th Terror Attack

I visited Ground Zero at the World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial while it was under construction. I am standing by the giant man-made waterfall with the names of the victims around the outside. It is very humbling and very eerie. Let the world practice peace and make war no more. – Lorian

Caturday: Nine on 9/9

Cat napping is such an incredible art form. Here is Mr. Nine, as capture by Peanut, in the proverbial cat slumber pose. Lying there with abandon. I am jealous of the trust and total relaxation he exhibits.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

DogDaz Zoo: Happy Birthday, Stella

Time seems to be flying at the Zoo. It is hard to believe that little Stella is 6 years old today,

Happy birthday, Stella. We are really glad that we figured out what would make you happy, which is living in your own space without other cats. We are glad you at least let Sofie and Louise visit, though Lulu is not sure what to do when she is in your room. Charles seems to ruffle your fur, so that doesn’t work well. You are a sweet girl and we are glad you found us.
