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

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

  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.  …

Meeting a Dog Blog Fan: August 11, 2022

It has been quite some time since I was able to listen to one of Nancy’s Saxophone Performance classes.   During all the lockdowns, she would host  bi-weekly zoom performance classes   for her saxophone students.  If you are acquainted  with me, you know that I have a dog bed in her small saxophone room.   For this reason, I am able to listen to all of her on-line saxophone lessons and classes.  Not only do I  feel  familiar with…

August 3, 2022 A Day Without Internet

Sometimes it takes our cable company to have a power outage to force me to write my blog.  It is only 5:15 AM at our home.  Therefore, I am forced to hear all about the old days, long before cable TV or internet.  This morning, Nancy rambled on and on that  by 6:30 most mornings, she would have completed her various scales from major to melodic minor, accompanied by the chromatic interval studies, not to mention endless LONG  tones.  There was…

Minnesota Twin’s Baseball Withdrawals: July 23, 2022

Minnesota Twin’s Baseball Withdrawals: July 23, 2022

Has anyone else felt the Minnesota Twin’s Baseball withdrawal symptoms this week?   Sure, it was exciting watching Bryon Buxton hit a home run in the All-Star Game; but, what about the other days of no baseball games?    We even thought of traveling to those local baseball games “Town Hall Baseball” in various locations.  Unfortunately, that idea was cut short because it was so hot outside.    Instead, I was stuck inside watching a TV show of 9 episodes….

Tonight, I decided to go for a walk to see if that would inspire me for my blog writing this week. Once outside, I heard an instant symphony.  I imagined myself walking through a live impressionistic canvas with paint brushes being the swaying  of the trees. The rays of sunshine peeking through all the trees was just enough light for the  pointillism. Stepping back looking at my canvas and imagining the birds in their position, I started to hear the…
