Black and White Sunday: Sofie Button

 

Some dogs get gray with age, Sofie gets black. Do you see the fuzzy wisps on her ears? She has black on her back and her tail now where she used to be blond. Maybe she is Benjamin Button.

Wonderful Wednesday: 2 Headed Hydra

In ancient mythology, hiding in murky waters near Argos, was a nine-headed serpent with poisonous venom, called the Lernean Hydra. My monster only has 2 heads, 8 legs, and 2 tails and will lick you to death but I thought they looked kind of similar to the one in the Hercules tale. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Expecting a snowstorm tonight. This 40 to 18 to 60 to 10-degree variance is making me crazy.

Monday Mischief: Bye Bye, Lambchop

We had delayed our Christmas holiday celebration until last weekend because Peanut had COVID. She is doing OK now. The dogs finally got to play with their presents. Louise loves squeaky toys and she got a Lambchop stuffy. But she was not able to bite down on it because of the tumor*. She was frustrated. I did not realize that this would happen.

Sofie decided, heck with that, if this thing is going to upset Louise, I am going to eat its face off! Sometimes you just have to destroy a stuffy for your sister.

*Louise has Canine Acanthomatos Ambleoblastoma. If you want to learn more you can find info in our CAA FaceBook Group which tells all about it and follows Louise’s story.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: What’s In A Name?

 

I don’t know about things at your house, but each of the animals at the zoo has at least 4 or 5 ‘pet’ names. I wonder why they are called ‘pet’ names? And why are special people called ‘pets?’ (And why is it bad to be the ‘teacher’s pet?’) Is that because they are loved so extra special much? Louise, aka Lulu Belle, Lulu, BooBoo Head, Boo, Lunny, Milky Toe, has about 7 names. What’s your ‘pet’ name? (Do pets have ‘pet’ names?)

Monday Mischief: Yule 2021

 

Tuesday, December 21 is the Winter Solstice if you are in the Northern Hemisphere and the reverse in the Southern Hemisphere. On the Winter Solstice, we observe a Germanic holiday that pre-dates the Christmas holiday by thousands of years – YULE. Yule celebrates the wheel of the year with bonfires, decorations of holly, mistletoe, and boughs of evergreen trees (sound like Christmas?). There are also feasts and gift-giving. This is a celebration of the rebirth of the sun and the light that it brings to the Earth (remember from here on it starts to get lighter every day until Summer Solstice in the north).

It is interesting to look at the similarities between Yule and the Christmas traditions:

  • The midwinter feast lasts for 12 days
  • Vikings decorated evergreen trees with gifts
  • Mistletoe was believed to have healing powers (kiss kiss)
  • In the Norse tradition, Old Man Winter visited homes to join the festivities. The Viking god, Odin, was described as a wanderer with a long white beard. He is considered the first Father Christmas.
  • Viking children left their shoes out by the hearth on the eve of the winter solstice with sugar and hay for Odin’s 8-legged horse, Sleipnir.

Whatever you celebrate – have a wonderful time doing it!

Black and White Sunday: Diluted Diluted Tortie

The sun beamed washed over Mini Cooper and diluted her already diluted tortie* coloring. When I turned it to black and white, you really see her stripping vs her coloring.

Diluted Tortie Cats

Tortie is short for “tortoiseshell”, a popular coat pattern seen on many cat breeds. In the world of cat fanciers, some coat colors elicit more curiosity than others. Tortoiseshell cats attract attention wherever they go.

Standard torties have a mix of orange and black fur, either finely interspersed (a brindle tortie), in big splodges (a patchwork tortie), or somewhere in between (just a tortoiseshell tortie!) Dilute tortie cats have a tortoiseshell coat pattern with one remarkable difference: instead of the striking, dark mix of orange and black, dilute tortoiseshell cats have a muted, almost blue and yellow color.
