Monday Mischief: Atonement

For all those that I have been unkind to, have growled at, or lunged at. For all the cats that I have menaced; all the cat poo I have eaten; all the goose poo I have rolled in; all my barking and carry on. I ask that you forgive me. I am but a simple, imperfect dog and mean no harm. Please accept my humble apology.

– Sofie Bear

Black and White Sunday: 112 in the Shade

Louise has her favorite spot under the rhododendrons by the pool. For some strange reason, if I am outside, she wants to be outside, no matter how hot it is. I have to force her to go inside to the AC. Silly dog.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Monday Mischief: Saving Squirrels

So we were having tree work done. It was way past time to trim back the big trees which needed to be cleaned up, so they could breathe, as well as, be less of a danger to the house. But, in doing that, the wonderful tree climbers discovered and cut down a squirrel nest.

That evening, the owner of the tree company, bless his heart, tried to reunite the babies with their mom. But it was late and dark, and a storm had come through, so she never came.

The next morning at sunrise, we tried again, but she just wasn’t coming. Even with a tape recording of baby squirrel sounds playing loudly. So now, Rocky and Rockette, are going to live on a nice 14-acre farm after they a bottle feed for a few weeks.

Thank you tree people for caring enough to try and save the babies. And thank you, Tim Ballard, for teaching your teams about wildlife rescue. If you are in the Annapolis area, try Ballard Tree Service.

Not Wonderful Wednesday: Severe Storm At Sunrise

The thunderstorms are getting more and more frequent and violent. We can’t catch a break these days. Mom’s tents help a little but what we really need is one of those bomb shelters with concrete walls so we don’t hear or feel it. Is there any place we can go that doesn’t have thunder?

Monday Mischief: Sofie’s Boycott

It is getting ridiculously hot outside. Mom tried to walk me before the sun was up, but it was still too hot. Let Louise go with her, she likes it. Not me! I am not going out there unless I absolutely have to.

Who’s with me on this? I are going to boycott walks! NO WALKS! TOO HOT!

Remember parents, if you place your hand on the pavement and it is too hot for you, it is too hot for paws!

Monday Mischief: Hot Summer In The Suburbs

MM 7.18.16

Louise, here. It is getting hot and humid outside. Can’t we just sit in the grass instead of walking on the hot pavement? Why does Mom not understand that dogs are not meant to be outside on days like this! Can we move somewhere that the weather is always nice, like California? We heard that you never have to cancel anything in California because the weather is always beautiful. But then again, we also heard the ground shakes sometimes and there are drought and fires and mudslides. I guess a few humid weeks in the Mid-Atlantic may not be so bad after all.

Stay cool, Peeps!

Remind your humans that if the street is too hot for their hand, it is too hot for your paws.

Monday Mischief: Safety from the Storm

Storm season brings with it many nights of stressed-out dogs and no sleep for me. I am trying a new thing by creating a tent that Louise and Sofie can hide under or just throwing a blanket over Sofie. Louise will stay under a lean-to as long as I am with her, but Sofie is just too freaked to deal with it. The blanket over her, nose exposed, while I cuddle her tight seems to soothe a little, but not much works. The thunder vest has been worthless for many years. I tried Xanax but the storms either come earlier or later than expected, so dosing is hard. It doesn’t stop them from getting upset, but they do seem to fall asleep earlier.

Sofie has decided that she needs to be up on my bed and chew on my pillows to protect me, I guess, from the noise.

Noise is our enemy at the Zoo. I’m glad that most fireworks displays were canceled this year (I hate the noise too). But that won’t stop my neighbors from doing their loud and noisy things from now until August.

Have any of you tried dog headphones to shut out noise?
