Do Not Be Anxious! December 1, 2017

Do Not Be Anxious! December 1, 2017

It was my birthday yesterday; but, I am not telling you this to get attention. If you have been reading my blogs all these years, you know that I try not to make it all about me anyway!  To say that the day went about without any glitches would not be totally honest and in this case, my owner has forbidden me from sharing yesterday’s episode that required some patience on Nancy’s part. She was mortified by her choices of…

Thanksgiving, 2017

Thanksgiving, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers!  If you don’t read my blog often, don’t worry, you did not miss much except for my assistance to help you view your human life with a bit more lightheartedness!   You see, us dogs really are so thankful every day for our human companions, especially if they allow us to “just” be dogs.  My human owners, as you have become aware, seem to think we should try to write once in awhile…

October 31, 2017

So, here it goes, I will try to crank out one of my blogs before my owners pick me up later.   They dropped us off on October 18th, with the only instructions to behave, but have fun!   Like, what is that supposed to mean anyway? We are being dropped off at a Poodle Hotel.    It is not like we are going to run away or give the other poodles some funky haircuts for Halloween or something?!  I…

October 14, 2017: Grooming

October 14, 2017: Grooming

Perhaps you are thinking, didn’t Louie just write a blog and has he ever written twice in one week?!   Well, just remember that I went almost six weeks without writing, and I am quite grateful that no one nagged me then about my lack of writing.   Sometimes, us dogs can be rather unpredictable like you humans.   I watch these humans surrounding me and just when I think I understand them, they go off and do something totally…

October 11, 2017

It has been one of those perfect weekends.  It all began when we went for an hour long walk during a leisurely misty morning.    Well, when it is with Harmony instead of Serenade, it ends up to be mostly fast walking or running more than anything but a leisurely walk, but it was all good.    The backyard is so wet yet that instead of playing fetch for awhile, we had to watch Nancy rake some leaves.   Why am I…

Those Girls! September 26, 2017

Those Girls! September 26, 2017

It can’t be easy being a girl?!  I witnessed that this morning when my two female friends, Sera and Harmony had a little spat about territory!    I don’t recall that I have ever had a fight with any dog, though there have been dogs that tried to pick a fight with me.  After all, I can’t help it that I am so incredibly gorgeous, but I only contemplate  it when other dogs feel threatened by what none of us…

September Already! (September 16, 2017)

September Already! (September 16, 2017)

The smell of the lovely rain  inspired me to write a blog. You wouldn’t expect me to write when the sun is shining when  I am outside as much as possible, would you?     I am a bit surprised that no one has nagged me about my lack of blogging this  summer?!  But then, I suppose if you read my blogs you already know that nagging will never get you anywhere with me! Like so many humans, us dogs…

August 14, 2017 Thinking of Tyler O’Neill

August 14, 2017 Thinking of Tyler O’Neill

Like one of my human housemates, sometimes  I just can’t seem to get the motivation necessary to do certain tasks.   Yup, you guessed it, I just have not felt like writing a blog for over a month.  Today’s  blog is being written solely for my owner’s dear friend’s son, Tyler and his family. Tyler had a pool  accident that left him with a broken back and a spinal cord injury. Given a purpose, and this ol’ dog does gets…

Lighthearted Louie’s One Year Anniversary

Lighthearted Louie’s One Year Anniversary

Sometimes, we don’t have to say much in order to say a lot.  My purpose in writing this blog is simply to bring some laughter into your daily human life.    For instance, if you think about it just for one second, what really makes you humans happy?   It is not money, fame or even your favorite blizzard from the Dairy Queen (no, Nancy has never allowed me to have such a treat).  Gosh, it isn’t even about  owning…

Our Visitor, Harmony! June 21, 2017

Our Visitor, Harmony! June 21, 2017

Whoa, and you thought that you were the only one crazy busy, so busy that you barely have time to use the bathroom?  Well, you guessed it, I am extremely busy with our lovely guest, Harmony (owned by a dear friend,  Jill Lurye).   It is all good though, she is allowing me to train her in the ways of this household; she is an intelligent and sweet (I know, imagine that, both traits!).    Take for example this very…

June 5, 2017

Now, this is the life!   Here I am enjoying the  outside deck, listening to the birds,  trees swaying, chimes singing,  while all at the same time,  playing fetch with Nancy.  Whoever said that us dogs can not multi-task as well as you humans?!  Yup, Nancy says that for every sentence or phrase I type, she will throw the ball for me to fetch, so this may be a long blog!   I can hardly contain my excitement because summer means…

May 24, 2017

Today, Nancy did as she often does, sat on the floor with me and brushed me.  But, more than the brushing, we talked and I searched her eyes.  We are a great team you know!   Some of you that are reading this will have no idea what I am about to tell you for it is a rather unusual bond that I have with my owner.     I looked deep into her eyes to get her attention, reminding…

Short Blog on a Rainy May 21st Day

Short Blog on a Rainy May 21st Day

Wow, it is already Sunday!  Do you actually think us dogs care what day of the week it is?  Perhaps we do since we know the days our owners are mostly home…..you call them weekends and we call them “WE”ekends!   It means we get longer walks and just more time to figure out our human companions.  Which brings me to another point today; we don’t sit and dwell on analyzing our human owners; but rather, we simply enjoy them….

May 10, 2017; Mother’s Day Approaching

May 10, 2017; Mother’s Day Approaching

I just love it when those human holidays approach because then, it gives me more material to work with for this blog.  As you know, it is Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, and while I obviously have never been a Mom, I am constantly reminded that my owner thinks that she is my Mom.   Occasionally, I hear her make some stupid remark about never “passing the Mom test” with dogs, so she wasn’t allowed to be a human Mom.  …

April 29, 2017 Healing My Owner!

April 29, 2017 Healing My Owner!

It is not often that I think that Nancy is slacking off on her duties; but, I must say, that backyard lawn is  quite overgrown. It also is not often, if ever, that she is sick like she has been the past few days, so I will cut her some slack (as long as she at least takes us for a short walk).   Gee, when I want her attention, I may sneeze once and she immediately attends to my every…

Love is in the Air! April 18, 2017

Love is in the Air! April 18, 2017

Recently, this delivery truck dropped off a huge flower arrangement for Nancy.  Of course, I could not help him carry it in, but I alerted Greg to open the door.   Now, us dogs don’t get too excited about flowers, but we do get excited when anyone stops over, even if it is just a delivery guy.  When Nancy arrived home, she was so very touched by the gorgeous arrangement that Greg ordered for their Wedding Anniversary.  First she said, “Oh Honey, you should…

Today, Nancy was talking about the great PCA: Poodle  Club of America National Specialty Dog Show  because we are going to have a guest here while Serenade’s breeder travels to the big event.   You may have read about Harmony, Jill’s dog that stayed with us this past September?!  It got me thinking about how so many people and dogs get to travel so much.   If I even hint about going somewhere, Nancy goes off on this long tangent about…

April Fool’s Weekend 2017

April Fool’s Weekend 2017

If you have been reading my blog for some time, you are well aware that I am not your average dog.   I have a blog after all; that alone should be enough  for you.   Not that I sit around wondering if I am “normal” but with it being April Fool’s weekend, I need to make sure that none of you think you can ever fool this dog.    My owners learned real fast not to try and pull…

March 22, 2017

Recently, I heard Nancy read aloud this quote by Karen Ehman  “You have a choice when it comes to what you will think about, so think on good things!” and  all I could do was wonder why she would be reading a book that would dwell on what we should think about?   I mean, aren’t I the reminder around here to “think on good things” and constantly living by example to be positive and happy?!  (If you forgot, check…

Bald Eagle Encounter: March 9, 2017

Bald Eagle Encounter: March 9, 2017

Just about the time that I  felt I did not have anything to write about for my blog post, we encountered a bald eagle before our very own eyes at the end of our walk on Monday.   Of course, I will include photos and a video (oops, too big for my blog).  It was breathtaking even for a dog!     There is something about this gorgeous bird looking over the vast land of open fields and trees that captivated…
