Happy Thanksgiving from Nancy: November 24, 2022

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

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

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…

Family Reunion: November 4, 2022

Family Reunion: November 4, 2022

There was a family reunion  (without dogs) from Nancy’s family side last weekend.  Of course, with people’s busy schedules, there  were a lot of people unable to attend. Actually, I prefer to think that they chose not attending because they weren’t going to see me?  Oh my, sometimes, I can really be self-absorbed and that is not meant to happen as a dog.    I just pinch my tail and I am set back to my reality. I materialized in…

Fall Sugar Cookies: October 30, 2022

Fall Sugar Cookies: October 30, 2022

Sugar cookies with a fall theme made their premiere at  our home.  Usually, Nancy only makes these sugar cookies at  Christmas or Valentine’s Day, so  this all came as a surprise to me.   It was cool having her home all day because that is a long process with the baking and frosting.   But seriously, wouldn’t you think she could pull out those dog treat pans and make me some home-made biscuits too?    I suppose I need to…

Finally, Groomed! October 24, 2022

Finally, Groomed! October 24, 2022

Nothing like being groomed right before the snow falls!  Wasn’t it  a few weeks ago when I was all excited about that box from chewy?   You know, the box that had two replacement blades for the mini razors, along with new treats and toys.     Fast forward a few weeks and our very last warm weekend of fall when  I finally had my bath and was groomed.   I do think that I look rather pretty, if I…

Congratulations Alicia & Andy! October 21, 2022

Congratulations Alicia & Andy! October 21, 2022

I am happy to announce that my website designer Alicia, and website host, Andy, got married in July.  Before Louie passed away in 2020, he told me about this  awesome couple.  You see, they rescued Nancy (2016)  when she felt Louie needed to continue his website after iWeb was discontinued from the Apple platform.  Before Alicia  helped create lightheartedlouieblog,  Louie, Serenade and Allegro were just blogging via e-mail.   So, I am saying perhaps that Louie should receive some credit…

That Box! October 12, 2022

That Box! October 12, 2022

Can you imagine my excitement when I saw a box by our front door that read “Chewy where pet lovers shop” on it?  I knew that I was going to receive some new treats and toys because I noticed the website open on the computer.    My imagination began to anticipate all the possibilities in that box from toys to treats.   It isn’t like I need any new toys, though I can always use more balls as you already…

Backpack Blowing: October 8, 2022

Backpack Blowing: October 8, 2022

I am beginning to think that us dogs can write about our infinite  adventures with our favorite balls forever.   In the last blog, I wrote about my orange ball constantly being lost in the leaves.    So, instead of complaining about it, I was able to create a game.  My attempts at getting a new “blue” ball never transpired, so I had to be creative.   Do you all remember the “Where’s Waldo?” game?  Well, that is what I…

Get Outside: October 4, 2022

Get Outside: October 4, 2022

Swishing through the leaves  is not only refreshing, it has quite a nice rhythm to it as well!    It seems as though it was just yesterday when I was running through the front yard without any leaves on the ground.  Now, there are so many fallen leaves. My orange ball could be easily mistaken for a big blob of orange.  Frequently, we have to interrupt our fetch game to search for my ball.   Why doesn’t someone make those…

Beating Heart: September 30, 2022

Beating Heart: September 30, 2022

By now, I am hoping that  you have immersed yourself in the canvas of tree colors.  Each day, the palette changes as does the sun’s spotlight. Seriously, the beauty surrounding me on my walks is quite breathtaking. Gosh, I almost forgot that I am a dog, so I better get back to thinking like a dog! There I was just strolling on our one of many daily walks when I realized that I had achieved one goal in this dog…

Baggy Pants: September 28, 2022

Baggy Pants: September 28, 2022

I wonder how many of my dog peers have to tolerate listening to their  human companions moan about ridding themselves from their baggy pants?  Here is what I have been listening to lately, so I decided to share it since “misery loves company” as they say!    Besides, I suppose I can let Nancy share my blog occasionally, don’t you think?    Here are her words about baggy pants. “I think I finally found a scapegoat for gaining those nasty…

Being Still: September 24, 2022

Being Still: September 24, 2022

Today I decided to just sit on one of the beautiful rocks near our house and listen. First, I had to block out the traffic on the nearby street. Then, I just sat and listened. There was barely any wind, so I waited for the sound of critters scurrying to their adventures and birds above us. I wondered how many humans and dogs were taking time, to work on the the art of being still. Off in  the distance, I…

September 22, 2022

Sometime life is like a game of solitaire.  At least, that what Nancy says.  Often a game looks like you will win, when in the end, you don’t.  Then, there are times when the game looks like a loser, and you win.    Now, I don’t quite know where this is going, but  it got me thinking about comparisons.   I don’t really think you can compare life to a solitaire game.   Oh well, it was an interesting opener…

Love this Season! September 17, 2022

Love this Season! September 17, 2022

Like most days, I was up long before the sun.   Such a beautiful time to inhale this favorite season of mine!   There is that crisp feeling of the anticipation of cooler weather, along with the expectancy of all of those fall colors that will appear.  Seriously, who would not love this time of year in Minnesota?   I feel like I am cleaning out my whole sensory system at this time of year because I am smelling and…

Focus: September 9, 2022

Focus: September 9, 2022

  Today, well, it was just one of those days that I feel I succeeded in helping my humans relax.   I believe when I go outside each morning to play fetch the ball, it is equally important for Nancy as me.  As you can see from the photo I am including, I have so much fun fetching my orange ball.  Certainly, we have a healthy routine going here.  I get to enjoy the exercise while we all enjoy all…

Labor Day Weekend: September 4, 2022

Labor Day Weekend: September 4, 2022

Do you remember how I finished my last blog? Work hard, play hard, and rest hard! I did not realize  that Labor Day was just around the corner when I published that blog.   Hmmmmm, so I think the only labor I  as a dog has,   is to write this blog. (HA!)  So, I better finish it before Labor Day. Actually, many dogs are seriously “working” dogs.   Take for instance watch (protection) dogs,  sled dogs, hunting dogs or…

An Incredible Student: August 29, 2022

An Incredible Student: August 29, 2022

Since the school year is commencing  for kids again, I think this blog is appropriate to share even if some readers may take issue with it! (HA, yes, teachers have their favorites!)   The fact is that another one of Nancy’s all time favorite saxophone students had his last official saxophone lesson this past week.    Yup, you guessed it, I had to hear all about why she will miss working with this exceptional student.   Not only was this…

Harmonious Harmony: August 19, 2022

There are times that you need to keep telling yourself that it will all be fine.   Nancy says I can’t share on my blog the cause of all of our stress lately, so instead, I found something positive to share with my readers.  You see, there is this cute little dog next door to us, named Peanut.   Sometimes, Peanut’s family brings her over to play and other times, I have to ask  permission to play with her.  …
