Monday Mischief: Patience Is A Virtue

After the dogs have dinner (4:30 or 5 PM), Charles has decided that instead of waiting until later in the evening (7:30 or 8 PM), he wants his evening snack immediately. I have started calling it ‘Second Supper.’ He has become so insistent that he goes into his pen, which is where he eats because both he and Sofie are food aggressive and she will kill him, and starts to whine, yip, and fun around. I do my best to ignore him as long as I can, but if I am sitting in the living room, which is where his pen is, he will not stop. For some reason on this night, he actually went in his pen and was waiting patiently and sitting quietly for about 5 minutes, until he could not take it anymore.

Sofie, being the anxious mess that she is, cannot deal with this frenetic energy when he starts to do the little dog run around and barking thing, and she freaks out if I don’t watch the energy level before ‘second super.’

Louise and Sofie have their snack in fun toys that they roll around the living room and down the hall. It takes them a long time and Louise especially has a super time. Charles on the other hand, won’t play with any snack toys. I don’t know if he is lazy, stupid, or just manipulative. He wants a mini ‘Busy Bone’ and he wants it easy to get to and not hidden in any toys or anything. Lately he has been eating them so fast, that I have to make him wait at least 10 minutes in his pen until the girls are done. He sure doesn’t like that. These little dogs are so demanding.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Mr. Happy


One of the best things about Charles is that he is generally a happy fellow. He can be pretty demanding for 15 lbs, but as long as he gets his way, he will smile and dance for you. Happy Black and White Sunday!

Wonderful Wednesday: Gotcha Charlie #4

It is hard to believe that Charles rescued us 4 years ago. He has become such a central part of the pack. The top right picture is the day we brought him home and the bottom is Mr. Sexy now.  ❤

Happy Gotcha day, Charles. Little but mighty.

Black and White Sunday: Watching The Day

There is nothing more interesting and fun than sitting at the front door and watching the world. There are so many people walking by now: puppies, children, squirrels, cars, trucks, and especially delivery people. Bark bark bark bark bark, woof woof, and arf.

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?
