Let’s Play Ball! May 31, 2019

Here we go again with Twin’s baseball. Whenever the Twin’s baseball games are on TV, I claim the best spot on the couch and barely move. If you have not been paying attention, the Twins are having a great season so far. For this reason, Greg watches every game, even when they are losing! Years ago, I had the chance to play baseball in our front yard with Nancy’s great-niece, Ellie. I think by immersing myself in the game, I…

Only As Old As I Think! 05/26/19

Only As Old As I Think! 05/26/19

It occurred to me this week that if I keep thinking of myself as young, I will take years off of my own dog age! So you ask, and how did I come to this realization? I am so glad you asked because you know me, I was going to tell you anyway. ūüėČ Often, I stand on the deck and watch Harmony fly across the yard to fetch a ball. One day, I decided why not join in the…

Off and Running! May 4, 2019

Off and Running! May 4, 2019

Rumor has it that the weather will become sunny this weekend?! Do you ever notice how you humans tend to let the weather dictate your mood? Shouldn’t you be able to take all those warm and “sunny” moments with you allowing them to radiate through you, always? It has me wondering more about my purpose at this home. If you haven’t noticed, my smile is rather contagious and readily available to share with anyone, sunshine or no sunshine. You may…

Happy Easter, 2019

Happy Easter, 2019

“Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail, hippity hoppin’ Easter’s on its way” is being sung wherever I go lately. (OK, so what if it is ONLY my owner I am hearing sing this cute little tune!) So, of course, I had to look up the lyrics for this silly song. I learned it was written by Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins. The 1950 recording that you may recall is with Gene Autry singing this Easter classic. It…

April Fool’s Day Week: April 5, 2019

April Fool’s Day Week: April 5, 2019

It all happened on April Fool’s Day this year. Nancy sent out an e-mail to all of her family that was so believable that most of them fell for the joke. I have strict instructions to not divulge the situation. I can say however, that it had to do with her moving to a much warmer climate. Obviously, that would have included us canine. I never read the e-mail so I am just saying, why would you humans work to…

Just Get Moving! March 25, 2019

Just Get Moving! March 25, 2019

“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” (from Wizard of Oz) Wait, I think the saying should go more like Puddles and sunshine, and mud, oh my! If you thought we needed muttluks for the winter snow, guess again!? Yup, I think we should wear the muttluks in the backyard now for the mud – like, I am talking about mucky mud, like you probably can’t even imagine! I even heard Nancy discussing the possibility of inventing some product for…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Here we go again with yet another day of partying for so many humans. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all you Irish humans. I was inquiring with Nancy about the Irish and I got an earful about her Irish friends she met while studying in Paris years ago. She claims that they were a key component in helping her relax while studying saxophone in France. While it is true that ¬†they know how to party (according to Nancy), they are…

So Now What? March 9, 2019

So Now What? March 9, 2019

I am really confused today after all the hullabaloo about the upcoming weekend snowstorm. Yup, Lighthearted Louie is going to do some major venting. Yesterday, I was rushed to the Vet Clinic to be bathed in anticipation of the weekend snowstorm. Then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, Nancy promised she would finish all of our grooming when the storm arrives today. Now, would any of you like it if you went to your hair stylist and the stylist said…

March 4, 2019: Beyond the Cold & Snow

March 4, 2019: Beyond the Cold & Snow

As you know, us dogs don’t really judge our days by the weather; but, we certainly are affected by our owner’s reactions to the weather. So actually, we are then affected by the weather through our humans. Oh no, there I go again, sounding like Nancy, going in circles trying to explain something that doesn’t really matter anyhow. Gee, I am becoming like my human owners at times. “This too shall pass!” Please let me explain how the weather affects…

Happy Valentine’s Week 2019

Happy Valentine’s Week 2019

Hello and Happy Valentine’s week to everyone! ¬†Now, I suppose you already know what I am going to say about this human “love” week, but I will say it anyway. ¬† I believe humans can learn a lot about LOVE if they simply would follow their dog’s examples of love. ¬† ¬†Love is listening! ¬† Yup, we really do listen to you humans and we don’t even charge for that service…..just listen! ¬† OK, so there are times when we…

January 26, 2019: Brrrrrrrrr………..

I wonder how all of you prepare for a week of extremely cold weather? Of course, I know what we do around here when it is too cold to be outside even for us dogs; but, what do you all do? ¬† ¬†Today, Nancy went out and actually ¬†bought food to cook real meals for the upcoming cold spell. ¬† ¬†Yup, she is going to try to become a better cook in 2019. ¬† While she is at it, I…

Withdrawal Time: January 17, 2019

Withdrawal Time: January 17, 2019

Sometimes we have to step back and take a break from our life routines. ¬† It does not mean anything except that even us dogs need some vacation time from our daily duties. ¬†Because of the icy roads near us, we have not been taking our longer daily walks and I think that may be why I am feeling lethargic and blah. ¬† ¬† For this reason, I have been often hiding in ¬†the one kennel in our home. ¬†…

January 4, 2018 No New Year’s Resolutions?!

January 4, 2018 No New Year’s Resolutions?!

This early morning, all I needed was Nancy’s encouragement to nudge me to write the closest thing you will get from me about New Year’s resolutions. Actually, for starters may all of you start your day with those first minutes simply reflecting on how good your life is with or without me! Don’t misunderstand me, I am not your average dog because if I were, I wouldn’t be writing this blog now, would I? I never have chased squirrels nor…

Merry Christmas! 2018

Merry Christmas! 2018

Merry Christmas to all of my blog readers. Did you think I forgot to wish you all a Merry Christmas? No, I was just waiting for inspiration to write something. Remember, to me, each day is the same. I even watched the Charlie Brown “I Want a Dog For Christmas” to get some ideas for this blog. I must say I really found it hilarious when Charlie Brown asked this question, “Why can’t I have a normal dog like everyone…

Post Surgery: December 5, 2018

I sure did not mind all the attention I got at Westonka Animal Hospital when I was there almost eleven hours this past week. ¬† If I may reiterate, ¬†I am extremely pampered at my own home, so attention is not what I lack! ¬†No, I had my teeth cleaned and laser magic to remove a ¬†few growths. ¬†I met and watched so many interesting dogs and people come and go all day long even if I was a bit…

Happy Belated Birthday to Me! November 30, 2018

Yes, you read that right, it WAS my birthday yesterday! ¬† Like every year, it was just another day at my human house with no hoop-a-la because that is the way I like it. ¬† If you have not figured it out from reading my blogs, I may have to tell you AGAIN that us dogs live each day the same, everyday. ¬†In other words, every day can be like our birthday, making it the very best day we ever…

Almost Thanksgiving, 2018

Since I said I was going to write a Thanksgiving blog, I decided to write it now, the weekend before Thanksgiving. ¬† Of course, I am sure that all of you are anxious to learn what a dog like me is thankful for, especially since it is a human holiday and not ¬†a “dog days” type of celebration. ¬† Well, for starters, let me just say that it goes without saying that I am most ¬†thankful for my owners. ¬†…

November 11, 2018: Sick Days

It was supposed to be the weekend of our grooming, again! ¬†But, instead my owners are both pretty sick with a cold virus. ¬† But no, Nancy still could not resist working on my face and ears. ¬† I mean, which of you humans likes to be seen in public with just part of you groomed? ¬† I finally jumped up and said, enough is enough when it was taking forever and I could see we were not going to…

“It’s The Great Pumpkin” time!, October 29, 2018

“It’s The Great Pumpkin” time!, October 29, 2018

I think I may be starting a trend here with some of the human classics. ¬† This past week, I caught a glimpse of ¬†“It’s The Great Pumpkin” by ¬†Charles M. Schulz. ¬† You all know the story of Linus waiting in the pumpkin patch for the “Great Pumpkin” right? ¬† Well, just like so many in this world today, he becomes the laughing stock ¬†of his so-called friends. ¬† Ultimately, he did not really care what they all thought…

A Pooh Adventure: October 20, 2018

Today, I nudged my owners to get out of the house together for a little “Pooh” adventure. ¬†Yup, ¬† in the animal world, we all know that the new movie “Goodbye Christopher Robin” has all kinds of wisdom from the wonderful Pooh himself. ¬† Of course, if you know Pooh at all, you know he would say “But I am a bear of little little brain!” ¬† ¬†So, it brings me to the point that some of you may think…
