Wonderful Wednesday: Sofie the ‘Goldilocks’ Bear

Mom! Louise has all the toys and she isn’t sharing.

This picture is from 2013. It cracks me up. Sofie still does this 7 years later. Steps are a great vantage point, and also, it seems her body fits perfectly. I have found over the years, especially because I document almost everything, that behaviors don’t change much. Louise never lies on the steps. Maybe because she is too big? Charles will sit on the steps but I have never seen him lie down. Maybe because he is too small and it would be vulnerable. Sofie’s stair is ‘Just Right.’ Now I know why I named her ‘Sofie Bear,’ because she is just like Goldilocks in the story of the Three Bears.

Monday Mischief: Getting Comfy

We all have different ways to settle down before we take a nap. Louise loves to toss her ears and roll a little to find just that right spot on the bed. Sometimes she covers her eyes with her paws, I am thinking to keep the light out.

Do you have a special ritual to get comfy?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Milky Toes & Sun Flowers (Redux)

On a beautiful 70° in the middle of January, I thought I would revisit a summer post. – Enjoy your Sunday! 

7.31.16Louise stands at the edge of the deck for the longest time. I guess she is surveying her territory. On the other side of the pool is a busy bird feeder and there is always a lot of activity going on. This is a really good vantage point from which to see if the villainous squirrels are stupid enough to come into the area. I feel sorry for the squirrels in our yard because when I let the dogs out – zoom, zoom, zoom – they know just where the squirrels are going to be and they run them up the trees, fences, and power lines.

I love this shot because it really shows off Louise’s milky rear toes. The nails are white in those spots and black everywhere else. These are truly the DOGDAZ of summer.

Have a wonderful black and white Sunday!

Monday Mischief: December 2019 Review

How quickly the month flew. Peanut came to visit often because she missed all the furries; I had eye surgery (all good); there was a great deal of cat todo once I built the new Cat Village for holiday, and; we had a rare December 30th Rainbow.

Did you get fun stuff for the holiday?

What kind of mischief did you get into last month?

Come back on Wednesday and we will have the whole DogDaz Year in Review.

Black and White Sunday: So-Nose

A soulful Sofie at the top of the stairs. They love it when I come up the stairs and they can be eye to eye with me. I never realized until now that the pink of her nose makes a perfect heart shape.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: And the Stockings Were Hung…

The animal stocking are always hung so that they can’t get to the contents, or so we hope. I think that Mini, Sofie, and Louise have other plans.

Did you get something new for the holiday? The dogs got some cool new chew bones and the cats got these neat catnip mice in weird wire balls.
