Katy's Chair Pillow

Mom has never understood it but sometimes you just need a firm pillow. While we use our soft cushy pillows, there are times we need something firmer and we know how to find them.

Enjoying a Dry Day

This Spring has been unseasonably cold, snowy, rainy, and sleety. Only Mom minds the snow. You can eat the snow and even nap in it. It's rather refreshing in the sun. However the rainy stuff is not pleasant and if that is our only option we guess we are ready for Spring, especially since Mom likes being outside more when she isn't freezing with the cold.

This picture was taken last Friday and it was one of the only really great weather days last week. When it wasn't snowing, or sleeting it was a cold icy rain. Not that we don't need rain, but when you have to go outside to potty, rain is annoying at best.

Ear Scratch Anyone

All that dog yoga pays off. Nothing like having a sister that can scratch your ear for you. Well except when she misses. That's less nice, but for the most part it is kinda cool.

Monday Mischief: Sheltie Detectives Casebook 1: What Lies Beneath the Snow?

We are on the case as you can see. There is something in the snow. Mom has created the mystery of the missing dog treat. She knows the best way to get us to take her silly pictures is through bribery, but when treats are lost you have no better hope of finding them then with our Sheltie Detective Agency. Well I guess you really don't want us on your case because we are just as likely to eat your treats when we find them as return them. We might have to think about how this detective for hire thing will work out.

Monday Mischief: Mom's New Bed

Dog Dad and Mom decided to get a new bed before Christmas and I just love it. Lots of good support and well it's just comfy. It has an added benefit that Annie doesn't like to jump up on anything. The only time I'm bothered by Annie when I'm up here is when Mom and Dad carry her up here.

Monday Mischief: The Bed Wars

That blue rectangular mat Annie is laying on is Katy's bed. It is the only bed she uses in the entire house. The look you see on this face is patience, tolerance and love, but big sisters evenutally do teach little sisters lessons.

Annie loves to do anything to get Katy to notice her, pay attention to her, play with her. For the most part Katy is a good big sister, gentle and caring. However, every so often big sister fights back. This was Bailey's bed. He actually won it in a contest at a shelter fundraiser and he and Katy would sometimes share it. When he passed Katy would lay next to it, but she wanted nothing to do with sleeping in it. She has a small egg crate mat with a sports fleece covering that lies right in front of a heat vent. In order to vex her Annie has been stealing her spot. Until recently Katy has never retaliated.

I came in the room one day to find Katy has reclaimed the right to use all beds. Annie is not sure she likes what she has set in motion.

Monday Mischief

Don't be deceived by this charming photograph. We've been up to plenty of mischief. Mom likes the cute sweet pictures to remember us by. Normally she's too busy cleaning up the messes to take the pictures. However, you can clearly see that we've been up to no good and she's wants something cute to balance the scales.

Protecting Mr. Magoo

This is not a sponsored post. We have been hunting stores for Multipet talking toys since Bailey got his first one years ago. After about the fifth time the "Oh No Magoo you've done it again who hoo" goes off again I question my logic, but Bailey loves these toys. Don't get me started on the giggling Koala that one is creepy.

DH managed to capture this picture over the weekend of Bailey protecting Magoo with his body. Not sure what the threat was, but he obviously felt strongly about him.

Monday Mischief: Santa Take 2

We always get multiple shots to choose from when we go to visit Santa and this year Mom just couldn't resist getting more than one shot of us visiting the big guy. She of course chose the one with Katy sticking out her tongue at Santa for the Christmas Card, after all how often are you going to get that shot. However, this shot just said while Bailey was trying to demonstrate how good he was for Santa, Katy had mischief in mind.

Some good news from Bailey. He had his weigh in with the Vet Saturday, no visit, and is up 3 pounds so he is just under 3 pounds his normal weight now. This is huge. It has been a real miracle. Those prayers really are working. We went from thinking he wouldn't be here at Halloween and not including his name on the Christmas card list to having him regaining weight and chasing Katy like a much younger dog. Don't know where this will lead, but this has been the greatest Christmas gift we could have asked for and received, a wonderful Christmas season with Bailey.

Monday Mischief: The Christmas Card Wreath

Well it was a busy but productive weekend. Mom and Dad finally got into Christmas mode.

Friday they left us home and took the great niece and nephews to the Christmas tree lighting. The little ones got to visit with Santa who arrived on a fire engine to open the festivities. We didn't get to go because it was incredibly crowded.

Saturday we finally got to see Santa at the Baypath Rescue fundraiser. Can you believe it Santa remembered us!! With all the dogs he sees we didn't expect he'd remember us. I guess he doesn't see many Shelties and who knew Santa has a thing for Shelties. Santa even remembered to rub Katy's side so she stopped being scared. We got to our picture taken with Santa and then we got to go shopping in the store that hosted the event. We found lots of cool toys to suggest for Santa toys and we also pointed out some bully sticks that might be interesting.

Mom and Dad finally got our card wreaths put up and the first one only has our cards in it so far. I suspect we'll fill the first one before Mom even gets one card in it.

They also got the tree up this weekend so the holiday decorations are coming along. Next weekend we are helping one of the great nephews celebrate his birthday. We love birthday parties because Dog Dad always gets us cookies to celebrate with the birthday child. The tradition is the birthday kid gives us the cookies before he/she has birthday cake. We don't get bakery cookies often so we are looking forward to it.

Happy Chanukah to all our friends celebrating. We hope the holiday is filled with joy, happiness, and wonderful memories as you celebrate with family and friends.

Monday Mischief: Putting out the Holly Buckets

Mom was quite excited when she moved here to find she had Holly bushes in her own front yard. Oddly they seem to have the best berries in the summer, not the winter as all the fake Holly she's used over the years assured her she'd find. However, this year has been so warm that the bush is very berriful and Dog Dad decided the day after Thanksgiving would be a great day to do its winter trim.

The weather was very tropical for New England on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Mom was out in a short sleeved shirt and her sandals. She hates putting shoes on when its muddy. Mom loves putting out the Holly buckets full of Holly and ornaments to decorate the front yard. She and Dog Dad just never have done the whole Christmas light thing, but she does enjoy having something outside. A few years ago Santa's elves found their way home. Other outdoor decorations have not survived the brutal snow storms, so Mom recruited a gnome planter to help. She may be checking out some outdoor sales to see what she can locate.

We were very helpful supervising and making sure nobody got hurt while working with the pointy Holly.

Mom helped us send out all our digital Christmas cards this weekend to those who requested e-cards and to all those living outside the United States. We have an appointment with Santa on Saturday and hope to get our paper cards made up after that so we can get the rest of the list mailed.

Monday Mischief: Relocating the Blanket

Mom and Dad have fleece placed on the couch and on our mat for us to use. However, the other day we decided we wanted to share a blankie and moved one to suit us. Mom for some reason thought this was rather adorable and had to capture our private moment.

Monday Mischief: Recovering in Bed

After Thursday's glorious mud bath, Mom felt a need to follow it up with a not so pleasant soap bath. So I decided to dry out on her bed. Mom is grateful she stopped me before I made it upstairs in my muddy happiness. I was headed there when the evil leash clipped on me and headed me to the dreadful tub of doom. Mom mentioned something about the bath tub resembling her former students Nile projects as the water turned rather muddy. She fails to realize the soft fluffiness that she attributes to the bath is really all about the mud.

DeCordova Park and Sculpture Museum Goes to the Dogs

Hi folks we have had a busy summer and haven't posted much, but we wanted those of you in the Massachusetts area to know about a art event that we can actually attend. Yes, Mom and Dad often go out leaving us at home with the excuse, that they don't allow dogs. However, while they were at an evening event at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA they discovered a special evening for dogs and their humans.

Wednesday, August 12 at 6:30 PM there is going to be a walk and tour with the curator. You have to promise to be on your best behavior to walk through the outdoor park. According to Mom and Dad the walks are amazing. They were in their dress up clothes last time so they were limited in how much walking they could do. This time they plan on wearing more exploring clothes so they can see more of the outdoor park. If you live in the are and want to find out more about the event there is more information here.

We hope the event is well attended and everyone behaves so more places will think of offering events like this so we can go with Mom and Dad instead of being told we have to stay home because dogs aren't allowed.

Monday Mischief: Paws in the Park

Hi Everyone, we are back. We got lost in all the snow. Mom and Dad traveled and then we just never got back to blogging. However, this weekend we attended Save a Dog's Paws in the Park at historic Wayside Inn and it seemed to be a great time to return to the world of blogging.

We had a wonderful time at the event. It was a bit warmer than normal for May. They had plenty of water stations. Bailey drank quite a bit. Katy was pretty stubborn about drinking outside the house bowls.

This year Paws had an agility try out and Bailey had fun participating in it, especially when he discovered tons of abandoned treats inside the tunnel. He made the tunnel roll when he turned around to pick up a few he'd missed. With her black coat, Katy was feeling a bit warm and decided to opt out.

We wanted so badly to participate in the musical hula hoops game, but we arrived just after the closed the entry for the game. We had fun watching as the players had to walk around the circle and sit in a hula hoop before the music stopped. The little dogs really had the edge slipping under the bigger dogs as the music stopped and edging them out of a spot in the circle.

We were pleased to find several other Shelties at the event. We don't often meet up with other Shelties.

Treats were flowing freely at all the vendors and we didn't hesitate to use our cuteness to get as much attention as possible.

Save a Dog is trying to purchase the building they are currently in and according to an article Mom read this morning, this was one of their most successful fundraisers ever. We wish them nothing but success as they continue trying to raise the funds they need to have a permanent home for their great work.

For those of you who live in the Massachusetts area and enjoy these events the Whisker Walk is coming up Sunday, June 7th at the Lancaster Fairgrounds from 11-3. This is the biggest event of the year and we try not to miss it. You can find more information at their website here.
