Wordless Wednesday: We Slept Through It!

Yesterday was 4th of July and you know what that means – FIREWORKS! Not only was it going to be a stressful evening but when Mom was walking us to get us tired before dinner THUNDER rolled in. Mom was not sure how we were going to do this evening with all the rumbles from Mother Nature and the crackers used to honor our Forefathers (a double whammy). It didn’t start well because Louise didn’t want to eat all her dinner because of the thunder (though Sofie decided it was OK to finish it for her before Mom caught her).

Mom played nice smooth jazz music for us during the storm. It always helps distract us from the noise. She thinks it is more soothing than classical (which can get quite raucous). And after the storm, we played our evening games. She tried to take us out to potty before it got dark, but as soon as we got in the yard we heard pop pop pop and ran back inside.

Once it got dark, everyone was watching TV and it drowned out most of the crackers and, as you can see from the pictures, Louise and Sofie were able to snooze right through the ‘1812 Overture.’ I was a little concerned but managed to see myself through until I could go ‘night night’ in my downstairs kennel, with the curtain down, and the music up, and some extra treats.

We hope your celebration was quiet and peaceful and full of treats. – Charles, the Mugwump

Wordless Wednesday: Thunk

 Since I have been living in the den while recuperating, my piano can be accessed from the couch-bed or the temporary table that I have set up. So the piano has now become a stepping stone for Charles and the cats to see out the window. I kept hearing “thunk thunk thunk” on the keys (it’s electric so at least I can keep the sound off).

At first, I thought it was a cat trying to play with the blinds (which they love to do). Mini has been sleeping on a blanket I put there for her for awhile, but then I caught Charlie sleeping on the keyboard the other day. I have even seen Louise step on it to look out.

I am not sure that is good for the keys?

Wordless Wednesday: Beauty As Happiness

Sometimes I am amazed at Sofie’s coat. It swirls and twists in amazing ways. She is a visually beautiful dog. But dogs don’t know how beautiful they are. They have no sense of vanity or visual beauty, those are complex human emotions. If Sofie was a human she would probably have mats in her hair and be unkempt if left to her own devices. I probably would be constantly putting her long blond hair in a braid or pigtails. Dogs don’t get caught up in the visual differences of their species. With no sense of visual beauty, what they see is valued on a different scale than ours.They lack the aesthetic sense of things. How different it would be to not know visual beauty. To experience a sunrise only as an astrological event, not as the deep oranges and reds that bring a new day. To look at a painting that moves you, and not feel moved. Ok, so now I have made myself sad.

But some define Beauty as Happiness. And I know that my dogs experience happy. So then, by this definition, they must be experiencing beauty. I like that. Beauty in the deepest sense. Beauty felt. I know this was a lot of words for a Wordless Wednesday, but do you think dogs experience beauty?

Wordless Wednesday: Walk Me, Please!!!

 Mommy has not been able to walk us for 40 days now. I am dying. Even though Amanda and Sonya and Danielle all come and take us for walks, I want MOMMY!

Please Mommy, can’t you take that cast off already and walk me. No one walks like you do.

PLEASE, I promise to be good and eat all my dinner.

Wordless Wednesday: Garden Day

It is definitely spring and we are really enjoying being outdoors. We wish the kitties could come out into the garden with us too. Some dog (who will remain nameless) encouraged them to rip a hole in the expensive dog-nails proof screen and helped them to a moment on the deck. Mom was not happy especially since Nine’s adventure in the wild last year when he was gone for 2 days. Mini came through the hole, and being the sweet thing she is, walked up to V in the garage, wondering where all the fun was. That is how Mom found out about the new hole. This time, Nine stayed in the house. Maybe he remembered how scary the yard can be. Someone always seems to go wondering when Mom is not at her best. I guess the cats are just opportunists.

The days are getting longer and lighter. Even limpy Mom is coming out on the deck.

Have a wonderful Wednesday! – Louise, aka Lulu

Wordless Wednesday: They’re Back

Louise and Sofie finally returned from Sonya’s Dog Farm after 2 weeks away. This means that Charles and Mini Cooper no longer are the only two critters that wanted to be on Mommy while she recuperates. The big dogs jumped right up and made themselves at home. Charles decided that it was best to seek the highest point on the bed for safety (Mom’s foot pillow). Isn’t Mom lucky that she has all of us taking care of her and making sure that she is protected on all sides?
