Black and White Sunday: The Toy

Everything seems to scare poor Sofie.

I think she is worried the ball will come alive on its own. Oh my!

Black and White Sunday: Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay

[

“(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” – Otis Redding

Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
Cuz I’ve had nothing to live for
And look like nothing’s gonna come my way

So, I’m just gon’ sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

Looks like nothing’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I’ll remain the same, listen

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone, listen
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home, now

I’m just gon’ sit at the dock of a bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

[Ends in harmonic whistling]

(I bet now you are going to whistle this all day :-))

Wonderful Wednesday: 4 Grooming Tips From Mr. Handsome

Hello, Charles here. I had a haircut this week and I am super handsome if I must stay so myself. I thought I would share with you a few things that Mom does to make my grooming experience easy. Of course, Sonya is the best groomer in the world so I never give her trouble.

  1. TOUCH MY PAWS, OFTEN. No dog in his right mind likes his feet touched, so MOM got me used to it but touching my paws often (but not necessarily for a long time). It made it easier for groomers to do my nails.
  2. BRUSH ME, A LOT. Mom brushes her hair every day to keep the knots out and brushes me as much as possible too, to help me stay mat free.
  3. CHECK MY EARS. A lot of stuff sticks in my ears, Mom cleans them for me because I can’t.
  4. CHECK MY NAILS. Since I don’t run in the wild my nails don’t wear down and need clipping.

Grooming me regularly so I stay clean and neat is such a nice thing. Lucky me!

Black and White Sunday: Thunder Fear

We are in storm season here in the Mid-Atlantic. Out of nowhere, the winds whip to 60 miles per hour and the skies turn black and menacing. The thunderstorms roll in all times of the day and night which is not good for dogs like Sofie who have extreme trouble tolerating the thunder. She seems to know when there is a storm anywhere within 100 miles. I mean it! Long before the skies change, and even if the storm never comes over us, she knows that it is storming somewhere in the state.

Peanut sent me this picture while I was at work the other morning around 8 AM. Sofie was hiding under a blanket in her room as a storm raged outside.

Where do you hide?

Memorial Day ’19: Always Remember the Fallen

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America

usa_md_clr
I repost their story every year because soldier dogs are truly amazing heroes and we must always honor our troops and our service animals and all the fallen spirits that have been taken, for oh, too many reasons. Take a moment, right now, just a few seconds, and be thankful for the wonderful service people that work so hard to stop some really terrible things from happening around the world and remember those that gave their lives for our freedom.

Look at these faces!

fastcompany:

These are some of my favorite images from the book Soldier Dogs. There are more pictures in our slideshow today.

Military Working Dogs play a crucial part in America’s armed services. The best known “Soldier Dog,” Cairo, put crucial canine skills to work in the SEAL Team Six operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. Other Military Working Dogs serve as everything from bomb sniffers to troop companions to search and rescue dogs (and also serve in darker roles, such as duty at Guantanamo Bay). Their handlers and trainers, devoted dog lovers down to a man, form an unusually close-knit fraternity within the military.

Dogs are not only our best friends, but they are also an incredible asset to our safety forces. Thank you to all the handlers and animals that keep us safe around the world and on this MEMORIAL DAY to all those who lost their lives in service – Your friends at DogDaz Zoo

Black and White Sunday: Storm Cloud

[

Louise loves her storm cloud. It has 2 little raindrops in it that you can pull out as separate squeaky toys. She got it in a complimentary Barkbox that someone sent us. It is her favorite at the moment.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.
