Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
i say get as close as possible to the counters!
Our bipeds maintain a food perimeter too. We use the inch-worm technique to move in unnoticed (almost). It doesn’t work either.

Glass tables are the enemy of scrap hunters everywhere. And the children who love to feed them. 🙂
I beg for food all the time… I am not luck all the time!
Kisses and hugs
The curtains look wonderful!
When my mom really wants us to behave when we go out to eat with them, we get bully sticks. So I think it’s only fair that you get one too.
I love “Goody Four Paws” – that is so funny 🙂 I understand how you feel Ruby. Not fair.
Very pretty use of the fabric.
Looks like you guys were having fun. 🙂
Face it Ruby, they just don’t understand you.
We know about your escapades, Ruby, so we know why you have to stay away from the counter and the table! We’re not falling for the innocent act!
I like to think that you are reminding the humans of the essential historical bond between canine and man. Humans have gotten so complacent now that dinner comes from the grocery and not from hunter/gatherer activities. You could bet you’d get to share if you helped them take down a wooly mammoth for dindin!
Ruby, we think they’ve got your number. You may have to resort to the cuteness factor.
Love the way the window treatment came out. Very nice. Is the hu-Grandmom up for hire? We have a few windows in need of something nice.

Woo, Ruby! It’s … it’s almost like they don’t trust you!
PS: I really like the way the curtains look!
we love wen its human dinner time 😀

I LOVE when mom eats!! I dont use the cute trick!
Poor Ruby. Given the guilty verdict before any crime has been committed. She needs a better lawyer and publicist!
Tartok did a pawesome khute!
No wonder he khould work the table!
Thanks fur sharing the finished khreation!
PeeEssWoo: So, how much Siberian thread has been woven into those khurtains?
Oh wow! I love those curtains! I need something like that!
Ruby, I am shocked yet again that people always suspect the worst of you! I mean look at you, a sweet, innocent little Sibe, and you didn’t even get a bite!
Looks like the hoomans are putting you guys through table torture!!
Woofs and Kisses!
The Fiesty Three
Tell Ruby’s Mom, I think her window treatment is just beautiful and a perfect choice of fabric!
As far as keeping Sibes away from the food, all I can say is Good Luck!
Jo, Stella and Zkhat!
Poor Ruby. I know how you feel. I get told off to stay away from the kitchen counter too, esp when my humans are using the stove. One of my fav spots is by the sink! Unfortunately my humans have a strict no feeding from the table rule for this canine… Sigh…
If we would let Sam near the plates he would hover mere inches above the food. He never touches it, but he sees how close he can get.
It is terrible how stingy humans are about sharing their food!
Just be patient …… an opportunity always comes along.
We like your new window pelmet – very smart.
