Leftovers and Doggie Bags: January 26, 2023

Leftovers and Doggie Bags: January 26, 2023

Leftover coffee is almost as bad as leftover food.    To be absolutely clear here, no, I have not ever tried coffee, nor do I plan to sample any.   Does one have leftover coffee because they are too lazy to make fresh coffee or because they are too cheap to throw away the old coffee?    Hey, and what about my food that sits out for awhile, doesn’t it dry up even though it is already dry?     As…

January 19, 2023: Silence

January 19, 2023: Silence

It’s time for yet another random blog.  I was hoping  the  fresh air on my walk  today would jolt my creative juices;  but,I was wrong.   All I can think about is how I can’t seem to focus on anything to write about.   Maybe this is the time that I should break it to my human companions that I am just a dog!? Silence can never be overrated!  You may think, oh, Harmony is just trying to evade the…

January 10, 2023

After writing my Ten Days of Gratitude from a Dog’s Perspective, I decided everyone needed a PAWS from my blogs.  Well, mostly I needed the pause!  Funny thing after I told you that we don’t do resolutions around here for the New Year, I have had to help Nancy chart every food item she eats to evaluate the nutrition, etc.   While she won’t call it a diet, I do know she has finally started to lose some weight.  …

Happy New Year! 2023

Happy New Year! 2023

It’s a good thing that everyday is the same for us dogs.  Otherwise, I would be compelled to write about possible New Year’s resolutions. Oh, not resolutions for me; but, for my human companions.  That would actually leave me with an empty blog because they don’t do resolutions either.  While it is definitely true that they are always trying to lose those extra pounds, they need to develop more discipline. Our idea of a perfect New Year’s Eve night this…

Day 10, Ten Days of Gratitude, December 28, 2022

Day 10, Ten Days of Gratitude, December 28, 2022

Here it is already Day 10 of Ten Days of Gratitude from a Dog’s Perspective. As I stated earlier, I could have made this far more than Ten Days of Gratitude so on this last day of this series, I need to lump so many more into Day 10.   In other words, I am thankful for EVERYTHING!   When I say I am grateful for Alicia and Andy for hosting my website, it is no less gratitude than my…

Ten Days of Gratitude, Day 9, December 27, 2022

For Day 9 of Ten Days of Gratitude, I am going to add something that was not on my original list.   I am so thankful for my snow maze in the backyard.   Often, I read about humans enjoying different kinds of mazes in their lives.   There are the corn field mazes, ice mazes and of course snow mazes.   OK, so mine isn’t quite as claustrophobic as some of the human mazes; but, I am not complaining….

Merry Christmas! 2022

Merry Christmas!  (Ok, I realize this is a day late; but, I seriously wrote it last night and was just too lazy to publish it via the website.)  You didn’t think I would forget to write a Christmas blog, did you?! Actually, I can combine my Day 8 of Ten Days of Gratitude with my Christmas greeting. I am so grateful for our visits to the farm!  Because of the bitter cold weather, I was unable to run outside a…

Ten Days of Gratitude, Day 7, December 20, 2022

Have you ever noticed that so many musicians have dogs as their companions?   I think it is a twofold purpose.   Dogs love music and musicians love dogs to sit and keep them company for hours of solitude while they are practicing their instruments.   You guessed it; day 7 of the Ten Days of Gratitude includes both music and solitude.    Think about it.    First of all, musicians spend a lot of time in solitude, working often…

Ten Days of Gratitude, Day 6, December 19, 2022

Certainly, it was wise of me to state earlier that my Ten Days of Gratitude are not in any particular order.    Because, day 6 is going to address all the humans that I am so grateful for in my life.    Where do I start?    From my home companions, breeder, my blog creator and hosts  to my amazing Vet Clinic team, I can never give ample gratitude to them.    When I think about all of these people,…

Ten Days of Gratitude, Day 5, December 18, 2022

Here we are already at Day 5 of the Ten Days of Gratitude and the more I write about my gratitude, the more grateful I become.    Some of you will cringe when I say my 5th day captures my gratitude for SNOW! Originally, snow was not even on my list until the obvious kept appearing before my every moment.   You must keep in mind that I am not the one who  has to shovel it or plow it;…

Ten Days of Gratitude, Day 4, December 16, 2022

Friends, specifically my neighbor Peanut shall be my Day 4 of Ten Days of Gratitude😉! Whether you are a dog or human,  we all need friends. Of course, I live with my best friends; but, I welcome many others.  Sometimes, I meet a new friend for only a brief visit.   You know how that occurs from such a variety of activities each day.  I value all my friends from long term friends to those brief encounters. Peanut is that adorable…

Ten Days of Gratitude, Day 3, December 15, 2022

Never underestimate how much I love sleep and rest, even if I love to be active too!  Remember how I stated that my list of gratitudes contained far more than ten?  Well,  on day three of my Ten Days of Gratitude, I am choosing both sleep and rest as one.   However, as you are probably already aware, sleep and rest  are quite different.    In G. Divanshi’s article “Difference Between Sleep and Rest” she defines sleep as ” an unconscious…

Ten Days of Gratitude: Day 2, December 14, 2022

By now, some of you may be imagining what my list will include for the Ten Days of Gratitude from a Dog’s Perspective.   Others will be contemplating  their own gratitudes for their   lives.   Whichever it is, we are  in a better place when we are grateful, instead of dwelling on any negative thoughts.  Actually, as I was thinking about my Ten Days of Gratitude, I realized the list could have been far longer.  I hope that you…

Ten Days of Gratitude From a Dog’s Perspective: December 13, 2022

As I am resting on my couch this quiet Tuesday morning, I decided that I think the world needs to focus on things to be grateful for this December.  So, let this be the first day of the Ten Days of Gratitude from a Dog’s Perspective to Humans.   I am so thankful for a loving home which is really quite obvious to all of you.  Yup, I am rather spoiled with love.  Gosh, many dogs have to stay outside…

December 8, 2022

It is quite reassuring to know that I don’t  seem to deal with some of the human emotions that tend to plague  humans.   I think the only thing I become anxious about is when my own humans become anxious and then, they seem to calm down when they witness any hint of stressing me out.   It is like I am a multimeter to  measure stress because the minute I sense it, I have a built-in ability to relieve…

Hand Me Down Dog Jackets, December 1, 2022

Hello again!  After allowing Nancy to write the blog last week, I suppose you may appreciate my writing more?!  Lighthearted does not quite define her, yet that is where I  come to her aid.   We all have those humans or pets that seem to bring us back to reality.   During the month of December, I hope you will enjoy the beauty of the Christmas season as much as I do.   I love all the lights from the…

Happy Thanksgiving from Nancy: November 24, 2022

Happy Thanksgiving!  This time I am allowing Nancy to write my blog early Thanksgiving morning.   Yes, I am allowing her to write since she woke me up at 4:30 A.M. again.  So I already need a nap! Hello!   Please allow me to take this time to say thanks and HAPPY THANKSGIVING  to all of Harmony’s readers.  Some of you have been silent readers for many years, while others have shared such meaningful and insightful comments.   Please know…

Thankful! November 21, 2022

Recently, I watched Nancy try  a new King Arthur recipe for Banana bread.   The results were so good that half of the loaf went to her Mom.  So, no surprise when she decided to double the batch after she bought a bunch of bananas.   Yup, she tends to bake when the Minnesota Vikings are on TV.  Back to the baking, as you know she loves to bake until a fiasco overtakes her experimenting.   She had to bake…

Mouse Traps: November 13, 2022

Mouse Traps: November 13, 2022

Yesterday, we threw  out about ten mouse traps because the peanut butter had dried up in them.  One mouse had even run off with the trap and was half mutilated in our storage area (I know, gross).   After the traps were  disinfected,  Greg shouted “No, you can’t save those traps, you must throw them out and use new ones.”   So, yup, we sent Nancy  out to buy  new ones.  Now, they are ready with peanut butter applied in…

Election Day: November 8, 2022

It is Election Day here in the  USA and while I stay away from delicate subjects on my blog, I need to remind everyone to unite.    After all, I do tend to think that us dogs can unite people by surprise.   Do you ever notice how when a dog or any pet is in a commercial, so many people oooh and ah?!  Perhaps it is because our mission is to help people smile and we try to think…
