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.
Life with Charles is always interesting. Trying to take a family photo with him is almost impossible. He will do anything except sit with the girls and look at the camera. He cracks me up. I must have taken over 50 shots to get one that has all of them looking my way. Good thing that life is digital and I didn’t have to develop all those on film.
We hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. Which one is your favorite?
So we were having tree work done. It was way past time to trim back the big trees which needed to be cleaned up, so they could breathe, as well as, be less of a danger to the house. But, in doing that, the wonderful tree climbers discovered and cut down a squirrel nest.
That evening, the owner of the tree company, bless his heart, tried to reunite the babies with their mom. But it was late and dark, and a storm had come through, so she never came.
The next morning at sunrise, we tried again, but she just wasn’t coming. Even with a tape recording of baby squirrel sounds playing loudly. So now, Rocky and Rockette, are going to live on a nice 14-acre farm after they a bottle feed for a few weeks.
Thank you tree people for caring enough to try and save the babies. And thank you, Tim Ballard, for teaching your teams about wildlife rescue. If you are in the Annapolis area, try Ballard Tree Service.
The thunderstorms are getting more and more frequent and violent. We can’t catch a break these days. Mom’s tents help a little but what we really need is one of those bomb shelters with concrete walls so we don’t hear or feel it. Is there any place we can go that doesn’t have thunder?
I give the dogs their lunch on the kitchen floor. It slows them down and gives them a little game to find the kibble. Well, I guess Noel, the Christmas Cat, has figured this out. She is as food-crazed as any dog and will eat anything and everything. Luckily, she sneaked up on Louise who does not mind sharing and is not food aggressive (Sofie and Charles are). Louise just kept on snacking and let Noel join in. I love that Louise!
