Full Moon

Booker was acting all buggy last night. We went for our 9:30ish walk and he was just ... off.

On the way home, I noticed the full moon.

What do you think? Is there a connection between dog behavior and a full moon? Man-Dad says "yes" ... his dogs have always been a bit loopier when the sky is shining with a huge yellow-white orb.

The moon was illuminating the New River last night, making the yachts glow. This morning, it was still hanging in the sky, almost at the western horizon.

Booker is at doggie daycamp today. Working out his weirdness. He was just too agitated to leave him in his kennel. I am at the gallery all day and the street is starting to come to life (is "season" finally here?) It's a bit unsettling here for Booker; he gets cranky when his nap attempts are constantly disturbed by people making dopey faces at him through the gallery window. The guy with the pitbull yesterday, who walked past and then backtracked to encourage a "window fight," put us both over the edge.

So dog camp is a good idea for today. And maybe H-Mom will get a SALE at the gallery today.

Yeah, that moon looks spooky to me. It sounds like Booker is better off at daycamp. Too stupid that guy with the pitbull. Probably be better off with the human on the leash instead!

love & wags,

It's been raining ALL DAY here today, so no sight of the moon, sadly! And to be honest nothing seems to make me anything but HAPPY!!! Maybe it's because I'm still a young kid!

Hope Booker enjoys Day Camp, and there are several sales at the gallery!

How was day camp Booker? And Booker's Mom, did you sell a painting?

Hey, Booker, here's a shout out from two of your fellow Treeing Walker Coonhounds, Fred and Wilma, who live in Arlington, Virginia. Like you, we don't like thunderstorms, the full moon, or sharing our parents at the dog park. We do like running at the park while barking loudly, staring for hours at imaginary racoons that we have tree'd, and snuggling in bed with our human ma and pa.

G'day Booker

Maybe the PitBull Dude is effected by the full moon too! ;-)

The guy with the pit bull deserves a smack! Mom said she would be happy to oblige. As for the full moon, mom and dad don't think it does anything to us. At least not that they noticed.

I say yes! Maddie always gets kinda moody during luna piena, but I think since the doxie is still somewhat of a pup, he hasn't gotten it all figured out yet.
