Monday Mischief: The Toy Hoarder

I discovered this place where I can get nice dog and cat toys at a good discount. I actually went in to get some new drinking glasses, because too many have broken and I needed new ones (but I digress).

Knowing my charges as I do, Louise got a stuffing-less Squeaky Skunk, Sofie got a flat bat looking thing that crinkles, and Mr. Charles got a rope and ball. They were so excited and each played with their respective gifts for about 10 minutes. Then, we went outside for a while.

When we returned to the living room, Charles started doing what he does best – toy hoarding. First, he stole Sofie’s crinkle thing – she was distracted so she didn’t put up a fuss. Then he moved onto Louise’s skunk (which appears to be his new favorite). Louise was a bit unhappy, so she went over to her pillow and moped until I rescued skunk and gave it back to her.

The other dogs’ toys are always more fun. Charles ends up sitting on a pile of everyone’s toys so only he has them.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Monday Mischief: DogDaz Storm Center

I don’t really need a weather app on my phone to tell me a thunderstorm is coming. Here at DogDaz Storm Center, we have 2 main thunder warning systems – Louise and Sofie.

In the middle of the night last Monday, some how, Louise managed to unlock her kennel, by herself, and come upstairs and start breathing on my while I slept. Then Sofie, who rarely comes on my bed, pushed me away from my pillows and hunkered down in my spot. It sounded like a freight train coming through the house and the flash and clap were immediate. Amazingly, 15 minutes later an EF2 tornado touched down on the other shore of the Chesapeake Bay on Kent Island (I’m the Western Shore and that is called the Eastern Shore). It started as a waterspout and took full tornado strength (125 mph winds) quickly. Thankfully, though there was a lot of property damage, only 1 person was slightly hurt.

Who needs all those meteorologists when you have 2 dogs that can tell you at least 2 hours before something major happens that something is going to happen? Do you really need to know more than that? Get to cover!!!!

Lucky for me, Charlies seems fine through the storms and the cats don’t show me much anxiety. These 2 big babies take enough attention for the whole Zoo.

Foot note: They are both huddled under my desk as I type this because yet another storm is passing through. This is summer on the Chesapeake Bay. Oh, my!

Monday Mischief: 1st Days with Mr. Charles

12-19-16

Louise and Sofie are figuring out that the little guy is not going anywhere. He is not just visiting, he is staying forever. He tried to go to sleep with Louise (bottom right with flash). She is so sweet, I think she was confused but would have let him stay the night. He really likes her kennel,  maybe because it smells worn in.

Sofie and him had a little fight last night. It was really my fault because they were doing so well, I gave them all treats together. Big mistake. Sofie is not ready yet for that much closeness. (bottom 2d from left) I know better than to feed him outside the exercise pen, but I did not realize nylabones would have the same effect. Charles tried to come visit me and had to pass Sofie (who is always at my foot). Sofie is cranky when it comes to anyone (dog or cat) getting too close to her, sometime even Louise. Well, that was fur raising for a moment. Charles was beside himself and hid behind V the rest of the night.

Pecking order establishment. I worry about 50 and 60 lbs dogs against 13 lbs.

I had to block the rabbit holes under the fence. Never really worried about that with the big dogs. I liked the holes so the critters could pass through the yard. But now, Charles can escape, so I blocked them with long flower boxes until I can nail boards down in the spring (bottom 2d from right).

The girls are now teaching Charles how to stare Mommy down (top) when eating at the table. If 4 sad hungry eyes weren’t enough, now I have 6 looking at me, pleading their case.

Louise, Sofie, and Charles are going to be great friends (paws crossed). Even the cats are coming around.

Wordless Wednesday: Watching

ww-10-5-16

 So many little humans getting off the school bus.

Mojo and Zelda are walking with their human. NO FAIR!

There’s a squirrel in the tree. Let me at it!

Where’s that fox? I smell it.

What’s all that catawalling down at the house with those 4 cats?

I love when Mom leaves the window open.

  Hope you are having a great Wednesday.

Monday Mischief: Hoover (aka Louise), the Plott Hound

mm-9-26-16

Louise is such a hound dog. I know people think she is a little Labrador, but actually, she is much more hound. I am thinking Plott hound. I actually found pictures of Plott hounds on the internet that look exactly like her.

plott-hounds

She hates water for one thing (aren’t labs supposed to love water?). And she doesn’t have webbed feet. Her nose is stuck to the ground always trailing some scent. She can smell a fox a mile away. I think I am going to rename her ‘Hoover,’ after the vacuum cleaner. Lulu, I think I found your family tree. Not that it is really important, but sometimes knowing the linage of your dog can help you with training, medical, and other issues. They say Plott Hounds are loyal and stubborn. That would be my girl!
Happy Louise
