Monday Mischief: A Comfy Toy To Nap On

I have no idea why she always lies on a toy, but she does.

Monday Mischief: Best Friends Forever

Louise has loved Mojo Rising, the boy next door, since the day they meet, 11 years ago. He is about a year and some older than her. Even now, in their later age, there is a special smile that she only has for him. She always wants to go play with him, even though neither of them plays much anymore. Mojo is currently being treated for lung cancer and doing very well. Time takes its toll on all of us – but true love knows no age or infirmity.

Monday Mischief: Right, Left, Left

One day I will be able to sit down and watch TV without a million paws asking for something. To the right of me was Louise, begging in her cute ‘please Mommy’ way for a cookie. What you don’t see is a moment before she was pawing at my leg relentlessly. I don’t know about you but I have these long black and blue marks down my thighs, and then I remember it was Louise.

To the left of me was Mini Cooper. Wanting my endless attention, all the time these days. Sometimes I notice these little scratches all over my legs and tummy and realize, oh yes, Mini was kneading me.

Then I turn away and it is Charles now on my left, who has rousted Mini because he was jealous and wants to make sure no one gets more attention than him. At least, the little man doesn’t leave any marks.

Monday Mischief: October Review

They say that this was the prettiest leave change in a long time in Maryland, but we did not see it. Maybe this week when it stops raining?

Monday Mischief: I Didn’t Do It

Someone got yelled at because he was being naughty. He doesn’t like to get yelled at.

Monday Mischief: Herman

Charles here. We like this new toy that Mom got us. We have named him Herman. He is a fun guy. No one has chewed his arms off yet, so he must be pretty strong. Though Mom got us each a new toy, Sofie and I like Herman.

She got Louise this big crunchy squeaky bat, but Sofie decided it was her’s too. In this house, Sofie kind of takes everything. It is annoying. But, I get to sit on the couch and she doesn’t so I am not going to complain too much. Well, maybe a little….

Monday Mischief: September Review

September came and went. In the flash of an eye, we went from the heat of summer to the chill of fall. I love fall and so do the animals. Cool walks and neat smells. We hope you enjoy this quick review of September.

Monday Mischief: Atonement

For all those that I have been unkind to, have growled at, or lunged at. For all the cats that I have menaced; all the cat poo I have eaten; all the goose poo I have rolled in; all my barking and carry on. I ask that you forgive me. I am but a simple, imperfect dog and mean no harm. Please accept my humble apology.

– Sofie Bear

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?

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.
