Caturday: BACON!!!!

Still one of my all-time favorites from 2014. Noel wants breakfast.

I think K8 took this shot.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Remember Swimming Lessons

Year after year, the ducks return to teach their young how to swim in the river. Sofie wants to help, but they don’t appreciate it very much. Who taught you to swim?

Monday Mischief: Nagini Rides Again

My human sisters were very scared when Nigini showed up at the pool party. He sure is a good swimmer.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz Zoo: July 4th – Keeping Your Dogs Calm

We hope that you have a wonderful holiday. Remember that many animals (and humans) are afraid of fireworks, so keep everyone indoors and safe.

PREPARE YOUR DOG FOR LOUD NOISES!

The 4th and 5th of July are the busiest days of the year for animal shelters and emergency vet clinics as frantic animals break in or out of houses and yards. Early preparation for the Fourth can save you and your pet a lot of grief. Here are some articles to help you prepare your dog.

Caturday: Stay, Just A Little Bit Longer

That Stella Girl, she is such a talker. Talk talk talk talk. And when you go to leave her room, she grabs onto your ankle (it is pitiful) and asks you to please stay just a little bit longer.

Wonderful Wednesday: Twitch

Sofie gets so hot; I would too if I had to wear a fur coat in 100-degree weather. She always sleeps on the a/c floor grate or under the ceiling fan. Her big furry ears wiggle as the fan blows. Watch the video and count the twitches. Bark Out Loud, if that isn’t cute!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Black and White Sunday: Panting Hot

When summer hits, even if we are in the shade, it is still panting hot.

“Mom, get us out of the heat and into the A/C. We want some nice ice water!!”

How do you keep cool on hot days?

Wonderful Wednesday: ByeBye Brood X

Brood X Cicadas Are Emerging at Last

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/brood-x-cicadas-are-emerging-at-last1/

 

Every 17 years, millions of creatures, called Brood X cicadas, emerge in the Mid-Atlantic, and 2021 is one of those years. These odd insects are not locus or grasshoppers; they are entirely different insects and do not swarm or even fly very well. It sounds like we are on some alien planet when you go outside, but other than that, luckily they don’t like the sandy soil in my yard, so we don’t get many. This morning on our walk, one flew into the street right in front of Sofie and went, “buzz, buzz, zit,” and she wanted to investigate, but we just moved on. Turn your sound up and you can hear them in the background of Louise’s video below. This was about a week or so ago, at their peak.

They do feel really weird when they grab onto your legs, but they are harmless. Here are a few cicada husks left on a bush that I took this morning.

They are almost gone now, they’ve been here since mid-May and they last about 1 month. See you in 2038 Brood X.  (Good riddance!)

Monday Mischief: DogDaz Of Summer Are Here

Poolside

It was a strange spring this year. So hot in May with no rain that we had to start watering the plants, then some rain, no rain, cold, then thunder and lightning, then torrential rain, then hot again. But now we have entered the DOGDAZ of Summer!  All we want to do is snooze inside the airconditioned house. Sofie won’t go outside half the time because she does not like the heat (but she does love to swim). Louise thinks maybe the front door exits to a cooler place than the back, so she is always trying a different exit.

It looks like a normal day outside until Mom opens the door. Then…. blast! Heat comes at us like no tomorrow (what does that mean?). You would think we live in the tropics not the mid-Atlantic. Better to stay inside with the cats.

Lu garden

These pictures are from 2015 but not much has changed, the gardens look about the same, the pool is blue, oh yeah, now we are older and we have to deal with Charles, the little rug rat of a dog. Is it hot where you live?

Happy first day of summer!

What mischief did you get into today?
