Monday Mischief: Conversations with Sofie #19

I know that you have something in that grocery bag! Something that I want. Why are you not giving it to me? I want it now! Why are you not listening to me? Don’t you understand that whatever it is I need it immediately if not sooner?

Mom. MOM. MOM!!!!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Here Comes The Sun

I could have taken this picture of Louise on the deck just today and it would be the same as in April 2016. Why black dogs love the sun, I do not know. But both Lulu and Charles love to lie on the deck in the sunlight.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Wonderful Wednesday: DaffyDillies

 

Year after year the spring flowers around the neighborhood start to pop-up in April. It is a wonderful time to walk around and see spring in action. But, Mom is not allowed to walk dogs yet so she is going back through some memory photos to enjoy her time with us in the sunshine. Soon she says, very soon she is hoping that she will get the OK to saddle up and walk 140 lbs of dog weight. We promise we won’t pull you down Mom, unless we see a squirrel, or another dog, or a fox, or….. oh, I guess that is why you are only allowed to walk 17 lb Charles.

Monday Mischief: Let Me Sleep!

Sofie Bear – 5 months old
Sofie Bear – 125 months old

 

According to Sleep.org – “Most adult dogs sleep from about 8 to 13.5 hours per day, with 10.8 hours per day being average. Compare that to humans, who only need 7 to 9 hours per day. Dogs certainly sleep more than we do, although there are animals who sleep even longer, such as armadillos and koalas.

Over the course of a 24-hour day, dogs spend most of their time sleeping at night, and about 3 hours napping during the day. A dog’s sleep needs change as they age, just like a human’s sleep needs evolve over the course of a lifetime.”

How many hours do you sleep a day? Does your human keep waking you up?

Black and White Sunday: Favorites

This is one of my favorite pictures of Noel from May 2015. It is hard to believe that was 6 years ago. We used to have this bench seat in the kitchen and she loved to sit under the table and look out. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Wonderful Wednesday: Happiness is a Treat-Ball

Sofie Bear here – I am very happy when I have a treat-ball filled with kibble to roll around and chew on. I love to pick it up in the air and smash it down on the kitchen floor so that it breaks in half and all the treats come out at one time (but that only happens when Mom doesn’t close it tight). When it doesn’t smash open, there seems to always be 1 or 2 treats left when I am too tired to smash or roll it anymore and that is when Mom shakes them out for me (that is nice of her, don’t you think).

My favorite is the ‘Pet Zone IQ‘ treat dispenser. Mom takes the middle stuff out to make it one big dispenser. When it has the divider in the middle, which is supposed to test how smart I am, it takes to long to get the stuff out and I get frustrated and it stops being fun. I think this is my 3rd or 4th one because I smash them so hard they break.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE TREAT TOY?

Monday Mischief: Patience Is A Virtue

After the dogs have dinner (4:30 or 5 PM), Charles has decided that instead of waiting until later in the evening (7:30 or 8 PM), he wants his evening snack immediately. I have started calling it ‘Second Supper.’ He has become so insistent that he goes into his pen, which is where he eats because both he and Sofie are food aggressive and she will kill him, and starts to whine, yip, and fun around. I do my best to ignore him as long as I can, but if I am sitting in the living room, which is where his pen is, he will not stop. For some reason on this night, he actually went in his pen and was waiting patiently and sitting quietly for about 5 minutes, until he could not take it anymore.

Sofie, being the anxious mess that she is, cannot deal with this frenetic energy when he starts to do the little dog run around and barking thing, and she freaks out if I don’t watch the energy level before ‘second super.’

Louise and Sofie have their snack in fun toys that they roll around the living room and down the hall. It takes them a long time and Louise especially has a super time. Charles on the other hand, won’t play with any snack toys. I don’t know if he is lazy, stupid, or just manipulative. He wants a mini ‘Busy Bone’ and he wants it easy to get to and not hidden in any toys or anything. Lately he has been eating them so fast, that I have to make him wait at least 10 minutes in his pen until the girls are done. He sure doesn’t like that. These little dogs are so demanding.

Black and White Sunday: Getting Along

Mini Cooper has been lying with Noel on the bed lately, when she is not chasing her down the hall. I am not sure why Mini and Nine have been picking on the old lady so much, but sometimes they even attack her when she is in the litter box (that is a low blow). When things are quiet, like in the picture above, they are so sweet.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday! Happy Easter to those who celebrate.

Wonderful Wednesday: Conversations with Sofie Bear

You need to understand that I have a lot to say, Mom, and just because you don’t always understand, does not mean that I am not going to continue to tell you what I think – Sofie Bear

Monday Mischief: We Want That!

Mom is very strict about human food when it comes to what she allows us to have. And, she really hates begging. So we just sit next to her nicely and stare at her and sometimes even droll. She always has carrots with everything, so we get a lot of those, but no bread, no meat, no chips. What kind of establishment are you running here??? – Sofie Bear
