mishmash monday

Went to NJ this weekend to visit my sister and nephews.  Left Oreo and Chewy home to take care of their Daddy.

At my sister's, I got to hang out with OreoCat:
And ChewyCat:
Each is surprisingly like the corresponding dog version.

double dog heeling

Well, today isn't a "t-day", but here's a trick anyway!

Double dog heeling!

mishmash monday - random outakes from weekend

Gave the dogs a bath.

After running around the house, knocking over chairs, and tipping over ottomans trying to dry off, Chewy finally crashes.

Why follow your brother around the table, when you can jump ON it?
I was inside, balancing my checkbook, when I realized I hadn't seen Oreo in awhile.  Went out on the deck, peered down and saw him standing there with the ball in his mouth, waiting patiently for me to come out and play.  So, I did.

And the dogs were very happy.

Picture perfect weather for this long weekend.  I'm not a big fan of Columbus, I think he was kind of a jerk, but I do appreciate this long weekend to recharge my batteries after the fast and furious back to school time.

mishmash monday

Oreo is a bit possessive over his good smelly spot.  I love he when starts "chomping" at Chewy.  He always does that "chomp chomp" with his teeth when he's feeling frisky.  Looks viscous, but it's all in good fun.

The tree colors are simply fantastic right now.  One of the many gifts for living in the great northeast.

Unfortunately, I am unable to capture their beauty with my camera.  Photos just don't do it justice.

This tree is my favorite. It reminds me of ribbon candy for some reason.

Every morning on my way to work, I pass by a lake that is surrounded by red, orange and yellow trees reflecting off the water.  It is breathtaking.   Some mornings, there is also  mist coming off the water, which is so stunning, I almost drive off the road.

 I keep meaning to bring my camera, but I keep forgetting.  By the time I remember, it will be too late.  That's the downside of Fall - such a brief window of opportunity to capture the splendor. 

The other downside is not being able to find poop on the lawn.

tricky t-day

This month, Chewy learned how to circle backwards around me.

I planned on working on a different trick with Oreo, since he knew this one.  However, when I asked Oreo to demonstrate the trick for Chewy, he looked at me and said, "I NEVER learned this trick, you crazy woman."

So, Oreo relearned it.

Both did a great job indoors, but when I decided to make the video outside, they were brain dead! Obviously, I didn't realize it was an indoor trick only. Generalization is not my forte.

This was the best I could get out of them!
