Black and White Sunday: What Is Love?

Love is a funny thing: you can’t see it, you just feel it.

I love Louise and Louise loves me.

I know by the way she wakes me up in the morning (by walking on me and licking my face);

how she reacts when I come home from somewhere (with crazy tail wags);

the way she looks at me with those brown eyes (so soulful and adoring);

how she relaxes when I am near.

Some scientists say that animals don’t really love, that what we see is just an attachment or bond to the owner.

But I say that isn’t true!!  I think animals love – don’t you?

Wordy Wednesday: Whose Nose Is Better?

Noses are so interesting, I decided to do a small study of them.

Did you know that cats have about 80 to 200 million odor-sensitive olfactory receptor cells in their nose? That sounds pretty amazing since humans only have about 5 million. That makes a cat’s sense of smell significantly better than humans. Cats also have an organ on the top of their mouth which helps them smell (I bet you didn’t know that).

Dogs have about  150 to 300 million odor-sensitive olfactory receptor cell depending on the breed. Dog’s super ability to smell is enhanced by their long snouts and also by the structure of their brains which is wired for smelling hundreds of different scents all at the same time. Dogs also have an extra organ in their nasal passages to help pick up smells.

It is an interesting debate regarding who has a better smell ability, cats or dogs. The more I read on the internet, the more different articles disagreed.

Who do you think has the better smelling ability – cats or dogs?

Monday Mischief: Snow Day

Snow days are fun because it isn’t that cold usually. The first snow made us happy.

Sofie likes to eat the snow.

Ultimately, there were about 10″ of snow which was almost over Charles’ head, but at this point, he was still able to jump through it.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Up Close

Noel, the Christmas cat, is a mess. She seems to always have mudge in her eyes and food all over her face and never is able to get clean. I just love this silly girl.

Monday Mischief: Over the Mountains and Through the Woods

Over the mountains and through the woods down the highway, to grandmother’s nursing house we go;

Over the mountains and through the woods down the highway, now grandmother’s cap I spy!

Over the river and through the woods,
To grandmother’s house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh,
Through (the) white and drifted snow!

Over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the woods,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bells ring, “Ting-a-ling-ling!”
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the woods,
Trot fast, my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground,
Like a hunting hound!
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the woods,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go extremely slow
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the woods,
Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

(Traditional children’s song)

I may not be a certified therapy dog, but my presence at the nursing home sure does seem to bring a lot of smiles. Especially from Grammie.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Those Eyes

“Please, Mommy, can we have cookies?”

“Please, Mommy, can we go out?”

“Please, Mommy, can we go for a walk?”

“Please, Mommy,…..”
