Black and White Sunday: 2 Goofballs

Sofie and Charles agree on one thing when Mom is sitting at the kitchen table, she must be having something to eat, therefore, we must look as pitiful as possible so that she gives us some of it. Sorry but that just doesn’t work, most of the time, but it does, some of the time, so we try it all of the time, because, what do we have but time.

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?

Monday Mischief: Taking Care of Grammie

Charles is not a therapy dog, but he sure does make Grammie feel good. She is 93 and lives in an assisted living community. Charles is a little timid when we first get into the building but he gets over it. He rarely goes to many places without the other dogs, and the building has this weird pattern of carpet and then floor and then carpet, which is hard for little paws to walk on.

Once we were in Grammies room and he could get off the slippery floor he decided this was going to be ok. (And Mom brought treats to help.) Animals just make such a difference to elders. Especially when the elder had to leave their loved animals behind to go to a place like a nursing home. I understand why they can’t bring their beloved cats and dogs, because it would become a burden on the staff when just helping humans is hard enough, but seeing how happy Charles makes Grammie, who had to give up her cat, Casey (now living with our petsitter, Sonya), makes me sad. I really do need to bring him to visit more often. As long as he is good with it, it sure makes Grammie smile. He fell asleep in the chair with her and she never took her hand off of him the whole time. This is perfect mischief for a Monday, don’t you think?

Monday Mischief: PomChi Antics – Where do you hide?

Peanut and I were watching TV. Mr. Charles decided he wasn’t getting enough attention or food or whatever and so he went over to the other couch and dug a hole under the blanket, sulked and went to sleep. He is such a funny little critter. We never saw him do that before. Not having had a little dog before Charles, I find him to be more cat-like than dog. That action is definitely something Mini Cooper cat would do, but not the other dogs. The dogs dig holes in the bed and move the covers around and make nests but they don’t hide under the covers, only the cats do that. Do you hide under the blankets?

Wordless Wednesday: I’m Amazed At The Way You Help Me Sing My Song

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time

Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you
Maybe I’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time
And hung me on a line
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you
Maybe I’m a mandog and maybe I’m a lonely mandog
Who’s in the middle of something
That he doesn’t really understand
Maybe I’m a mandog and maybe you’re the only human woman
Who could ever help me
Baby won’t you help me understand
Maybe I’m a mandog and maybe I’m a lonely mandog
Who’s in the middle of something
That he doesn’t really understand
Maybe I’m a mandog and maybe you’re the only human woman
Who could ever help me
Baby won’t you help me understand
Maybe I’m amazed at the way you’re with me all the time
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I leave you
Maybe I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song
Right me when I’m wrong
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you

DogDaz Zoo: Happy 10th, Charles

Mr. Charles, the Mugwump, Little is 10 years young today. Though you have only been with us for 2 1/2 years, you have become an integral part of the Zoo. I still don’t understand how we are your 5th home – we are so glad that you rescued us and that you are with us forever and ever.

Well, almost everyone… Sofie.
