The Night Shift

December 13, 2013

Season’s Greetings from chilly Katonah!  Meet our night watch dog, Cookie.  Here she is at her regular post – a large rock in the back yard she loves to hang out by…

It used to be that Cookie didn’t like to be alone outside – Aussies are devoted to their people and often choose to be by their side whenever possible.  And at night – forget it!  We’d need to accompany her outside into the yard for her “last call” or she just wouldn’t go out. But now that Cookie is almost 2, and it’s wintertime, her favorite season with her double-coat of fur, we’re seeing a lot more independence in our girl.  Case in point, the ongoing “night watch” in our back yard.  Now, when the sun goes down, Cookie begs to go out – and will happily stay outside for hours.  Sometimes she’s nice and quiet, and sometimes, barking at the moon…sorry neighbors!    In any case, it’s a nice development for her.  Could it be she’s keeping an eye out for Santa?  Better be good, Cookie!  And stay warm loyal readers!  Diana

A Christmas Visit

December 6, 2013

Cookie Here!  ‘Tis the season for family visits.  I was so happy that my canine cousin Annie stopped by the other day.  She is oodles of golden-doodle fun!

Hanging out with Annie is the best.  Especially when we’re by the Christmas tree!

We were so happy we double-hugged Diana.

Wishing you many warm-and-fuzzy moments this holiday season!  Woofs, Cookie
