Signs of Spring on Our Daily Dog Walk

Signs of Spring on Our Daily Dog Walk

This has been an usual winter.  It’s not like we have harsh winters where we live, but we should get a lot of rain especially in February.  And, we haven’t.  Most of February has been sunny.  Not just sunny, but springlike.  I’m talking 70s here.  Great weather for taking my dog for a walk.  Misha just loves it! Before the frost and wind brought our temperatures back to normal this weekend, I got some lovely photos from my daily dog…

I Lost My Dog in the Laundry

I Lost My Dog in the Laundry

I always wash my dog’s blankets when I give her a bath.  Clean dog, clean bedding. I pulled Misha’s blankets from the dryer and threw them on the couch.  I went to throw away a string.  When I came back about 15 seconds later…no Misha! She ignored my pleas to get out.  Even as I started to remove blankets she pretended not to hear. Try as she may, she couldn’t resist the sounds of the mail carrier on our porch. …

My Dog is All Ears for Food

My Dog is All Ears for Food

Let it be known that my dog doesn’t always hear her name even when she is in the same room as the caller.  But, she can hear the pantry door open while buried under her blankets on the other side of the house. She can hear a food wrapper being opened in the garage. She can hear peas dropping on the floor. I call it selective hearing. She hears it if it has to do with food. —————–  

Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get My Dog Down

Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get My Dog Down

We were so lucky.  December was almost completely dry. It was practically springlike. I got to walk Misha almost every day. Then January came along and the storm door opened.  Mind you, we don’t have to deal with the snow like the rest of the country.  But, we’ve already had more rain and fog than in December, and we’re only half way through January.  Another series of storms is approaching for the rest of the week. As you know Misha…

Help Me Find My Lost Dog Treat

Help Me Find My Lost Dog Treat

My dog can be a tad obsessive about food.  She loves to play with her treat balls and she checks them repeatedly during the day just in case something falls into them.  You just never know! Where, Oh Where Did That Little Dog Go? The other day Misha went missing.  This either means she got locked behind the doggie gate on my mom’s bedroom or she’s hiding under the bed because something terrified her. As I passed by the spare…

Warm Doggy Blankets

Warm Doggy Blankets

I’ve mentioned before how curious my Jack Russell is. She was already mad at me because I washed her blankets.  The minute I them on the couch she just couldn’t resist.  She had to jump up to check them out. It wasn’t long before had her head buried underneath. I left the room to put one away.  When I came back someone had made herself quite comfortable on top of the pile. Even though I took away another blanket, this…
