7.15.13 Monday Mischief: Don’t Feed the Alligators

alli cropped

For the whole week in North Carolina, K8 was watching the stream behind our rented condo (on a very nice golf course) for any signs of the alligators.  There were signs everywhere that said “Please don’t feed the alligators, they get aggressive,” so we figured they were there somewhere.  The last morning, as we were packing up in the pouring rain, he (or she) finally popped his head up to say goodbye.  K8 ran around to the back to snap this shot on her iphone.

Good bye, Alligator.  Thanks for coming to see us off.



This is a blog hop. I hopped it from Snoopy’s DogBlog. Check them out for more mischief.

2.1.13 Follow Up Friday: MishMash

Louise headMom has been away in North Carolina all week on business, but the blog rolls on.  She has been monitoring our activities and left me, Louise, to follow-up (you didn’t think she was going to leave Sofie in charge, did you?).

First I will catch you up on Caturday: people thought that Baby Stella was really cute in her picture.  Well, she is kind of pretty… for a cat.  She doesn’t really like me and Sofie much though.  I am sure that has nothing to do with the fact that Sofie chases her down the hall all the time.  

The Black and White Sunday Blog Hop got lots of nice feedback on us playing with a toy on the deck.   I try to teach Sofie the proper way to mouth a toy, but she does not listen.

For Monday Mischief, Mom did some weird witchy magic that made us change color and everyone loved it.  But don’t worry, it isn’t permanent.  We like being just the way they are.  Blonds do not have ‘more fun:’  Black dogs RULE!

By mid-week, Wednesday, we were really tired because we had been in daycare all day (that happens a lot when Mom travels).  Sofie is so tired when we get home that she can’t keep her eyes open, even to play ball.  I get even wilder than usual for about an hour when I come home from daycare and run around like a banshee until I collapse too.  (They say that I snore very loud on those nights.)

By Thursday, we shared a wonderful new award call the REALITY award.  We love to be honored with all these blog awards.  It makes us feel extra special.  

Waiting for Dr. Kate

Waiting for Dr. Kate

Did we tell you that Mom made us go see Dr. Kate right before she left.  We had to get those horrible booster shots that she makes us get every year.  I was very brave and actually ended up smiling (a vet tech gave me some special cookies).  It was Sofie that had the most difficult time.  She whined and hid and did all those silly baby things she does. She was not happy when Dr Kate told Mommy that she was getting very chubby and needed to loss weight.  Mommy said that she should get a little doggie treadmill, since she can’t walk us anymore. I don’t think I would like an inside walk going no where.  Dr. Kate thinks that Sofie’s ‘Snow Nose’ comes from an allergy to plastic.  Plastic bowls, plastic toys… it could be anything.  Sofie is on a new diet:  no more food, no more toys, no more walks.  More cookies for me!!!! What do you mean you heard that I could lose a few pounds too?  No way!   Mommy will be home for the weekend and then she is goes again next, this time up north to New York.  I don’t understand why I just can’t come to work with her.  I could stay in her hotel room and bark at all the strange and unfamiliar noises that I hear in the hall.  On second thought, it is more fun to go to daycare and wait patiently for her return. Follow Up Friday is part of the blog hop hosted by Heart Like A Dog.  Check out the other blog hoppers:
