Black and White Sunday: Charlie’s Smile

No matter how demanding this little dog can be, when Charles looks at you with that smile, you just give him whatever he wants.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Monday Mischief: 2d Supper

Ok. I have about had it with Mr. Charles and his constant complaining that he does not get enough food! Charlie eats in a pen because he and Sofie are both food aggressive and she would kill him. So he has learned that the pen = food (my first mistake).

The dogs eat around 4:30 PM and then usually I go about getting my own meal prepared. Before Charles came to live with us (about 3 1/2 years ago), I gave Louise and Sofie a snack around 8:30 PM in their food toys to keep them busy for 30 minutes.

But Charles, who does not understand any food toy that I have given him (not sure if he is lazy or just plain goofy) has started to demand bark (you little dog people know what I mean) for a 2d supper about 10 minutes after the first. So now the 8:30 snack happens at about 6 PM. (My second mistake).

Charles has decided that anytime I sit down, whether at the kitchen table or in the living room, that must mean it is snack time.

Oh my dog!!! I have created a monster. Hence the picture of the unhappy Charlie who jumps in his pen and pines, mopes, and then YIPS! Hard to ignore, though I do try.

Do you get Second Supper?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wonderful Wednesday: Never Too Many Toys

We all have to share everything at the Zoo. Mom does not like possessiveness or growling. Most of the time the little guy takes the toys and lies on them. But sometimes, Miss Louise, in all her patience and general niceness, has had enough and takes back what is hers (she was first dog in this current pack). All in a day’s fun.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Black and White Sunday: Charlie, Up Close and Personal

Charles is such a silly little man. He has become quite a presence at the Zoo.

Never having had such a small dog before (he is about 15 lbs), I am learning all about demanding balls of fur who think they own you. I won’t say that he totally suffers from Small Dog Syndrome, which is a combination of behaviors from whining and jumping up on people, being a diva, demanding food, but he does take some behaviors to the next level for me. There are things that a small dog does that we would never tolerate in a larger breed, such as the constant food begging. The problem around the Zoo is that Mom (me) is not the only person in the house, which means that the rules are not consistent, especially when it comes to Lil’ man. Everyone thinks he is just so cute, or they want to shut him up, so they slip him food, which only makes it worse.

A good thing with Charles is that he does not want to be carried everywhere like many little dog divas do (thank goodness). He actually is not a lap dog which is why we are his 5th home, because he would bite people. Personally, I think he has arthritis. Previous owners may have picked him up quickly because he is little and people do that and then he would snap at them because it hurts or maybe children played with him to rough, which also hurts.

At the Zoo, we try to respect who they are, not who they are supposed to be. We are still figuring him out, that’s fur sure.

Monday Mischief: BUPKIS

I am starving. How come you get ice cream* and I get bupkis (nothing, nada)? Humans are so unfair when it comes to doling out snacks. They seem to have no trouble making all these scrumptious things and what do we canines get??? Marrow bones and occasional peanut butter. I want more!!!!

  • Mommy doesn’t eat dairy so it was some kind of Cashew Milk Salted Carmel concoction with Coconut whip on top. I still wanted to try it.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Side-Eye

I can’t tell if Sofie wants to eat Charles or if she is just looking his way.
