Monday Mischief: Harold and Maude Return

Every year Harold and Maude, or their children or grandchildren, have come back to nest in the front yard. Ducks do that. The experts at Ducks Unlimited say that ducks “imprint information about their home breeding and wintering areas and use navigational cues to return to them. Adult female ducks often return to former breeding sites.”

We have been blessed for the last 16 year’s as we have watched Harolds and Maudes waddle around the grounds, swim in the pool, and ultimately waddle their ducklings down to the river.

Luckily the ducks are in the front yard. The dogs would love to chase them, and do roust them if they fly into the back or worse in the pool, but the front is leash only territory so the duckies are ‘kind of’ safe. They must feel at home since they keep coming back.

Monday Mischief: We Help

Mom has a boo boo on her foot (a plate and 5 screws). She is not allowed to put any weight on it for 2 weeks and then she has to wear this cast boot for another 6 weeks (if she heals well). We think it is fun that she has to stay in bed all day. We have been fighting over who helps her the most. Louise and Sofie are away at Sonya’s Dog Farm until Mom can put her foot on the floor again. Mom is sad because she misses her big dogs, but we don’t. The house is now owned by us little critters only! We cats like that there is no Sofie chasing us down the hall. But, Charles doesn’t get any walks, just out in the yard, and is starting to look a bit portly. And, Nine seems afraid of the boot and hides under the bed.

Mom says we are a big help and make her smile. I think she is ready to be done with this cast thing already.

Reported by the big helpers – Noel and Mini Cooper

Monday Mischief: Pink Snow

We love the pink snow when it falls. It looks like the white stuff put it isn’t cold. We don’t know if Charles ever saw pink snow before because he tried to eat it. Pink snow makes us happy. Do you have pink snow? This is our friend Amy’s yard (she’s a yellow lab). She has lots of trees that line her drive. We only have one cherry tree and it is little and get’s white flowers, not pink. Pink snow is slippery and Mommy worries that we are going to slip. Mommy always worries.

Monday Mischief: Grazin’ On The Grass

The temperature went from cold to hot in a moment. I didn’t bring water and all the dogs’ did was pant and eat grass on our long walk today. Maybe I have 3 sheep instead of 3 dogs. I wonder if the grass tasted cool and moist, quenching their thirst until we got home to the water.

In case you were wondering, eating grass is fine for dogs. In my review of veterinarian and journal articles, no one really knows (or agrees on) why they do it, but they all say that it is not harmful. Basically, it has no nutritional value (sort of like iceberg lettuce). There is speculation that dogs eat grass when their tummies are upset, which I know is true. Mine have always eaten grass when they want to barf (especially Sofie). But, I also think they like the taste. Squash had a particular onion grass that he preferred each spring on my neighbor’s corner, and I find that Louise enjoys the same grass when it comes up.

The cats like grass too. We actually grow it indoors in hopes they will leave the houseplants alone. It doesn’t keep them from eating everything else, but they have fun with it. I know that the houseplants make the cats barf, but interestingly enough, I don’t find the grass does. Go figure?

My only concern with grass eating is when people starting putting all those chemicals on their lawns (which I hate). I make sure to keep the dogs off those surfaces so that they don’t get chem-paws, and so they don’t ingest the pesticides and other things that are just plain deadly.

Monday Mischief: KneeSpooning

Charles is a big knee-spooner. He gets in the turn of your knees and hangs on for dear life. It doesn’t matter if Mini Cooper or Nine wants the spot. The knees are his. Sometimes I do find Mini and Charles cuddling at the foot of the bed, so he obviously does move at some point.

Do you have a favorite spot on the bed?

Monday Mischief: Rollin’ In A March Storm

The storm they call ‘Stella’ came in with ice and snow and rain and ice and WE ARE OVER IT.

If you can’t have fun in the sun then roll in the snow.

Louise got a new barn coat that finally covers her lower half.

Sofie inherited Lulu’s old red coat that is just a perfect fit,

Charles got a dapper new barn coat too with hood. The hood is detachable and we think it will come off soon. Why do dogs need hoods?

Today is the VERNAL EQUINOX – that means it is supposed to be SPRING in the Northern Hemisphere. Go tell Mother Nature that, will you!

Monday Mischief: SunDogs

First is it is 75 degrees then it is snowing. This is the craziest winter ever. Louise and Charles soak up every sun ray they can get. This must be a black dog thing because blond Sofie is hiding in the shade and it isn’t even hot out yet.
