Monday Mischief 16: Two Tails in Two Cities

Okay, so I might be stretching for the Dickens reference.

Like a lot of Calgarians, the Husband has a job that takes him north for various periods of time. This time, to keep him company, he decided to take Alma with him. Because that’s the great thing about having two dogs – we can share!

They’ve been away for almost a week, leaving Moses and I here at home with the cats.

So while Alma is off galavanting northern Alberta, Moses is hanging out with me – where the weather has been warmer and drier.

The arrangement isn’t so bad, really. Separating Moses and Alma allows us to give the dogs some one-on-one time, which probably isn’t as frequent as it should be under normal circumstances.



I don’t know that there’s any particular mischief – beyond the Husband and I competing in fall photographs – to report, but the Newfs how have the province covered, should there be any.

  1. Do they seem to be enjoying their “me” time? Or do they miss each other’s company?

  2. Great photos! I especially love the Alma on a road trip one – beautiful!

    Wonderful pictures. It sure is pretty there.

    Our dogs end up separated a lot during hunting season because hubby usually takes one at a time. The only problem is that they know he is hunting and they pine away for missing out. If he goes for a couple of days, they get over it. Thank goodness.

  4. That’s great that this can work this way! My hubby and I kind of split time with Sherman and Leroy too. I take Leroy to Gracie’s soccer practice and hubby takes Sherman to Bobby’s football practice. It doesn’t happen all the time and it’s not as exciting as exploring Alberta, but it’s still a little one on one time sometimes!
    Beautiful pictures!

    I love the countryside. 🙂 And yes, it’s good to split them up and give them one-on-one time, for sure.

    Those sure are great photos of fall! It’s not really fall weather here yet, a few cold evenings, but still hot in the day, I think it may feel like fall later in the week though 🙂

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

  7. Hee-hee, road trip. Love the photos too.

    You remind me that I probably should separate the dogs and give more me time to them individually. They need reassurance just like people do that we respect their individuality.

    Looks like… Newfoundland in charge of Alberta!

  10. Oh, it’s a good thing the hubs doesn’t have to travel much for work (and when he does it’s always via plane) or this is just the argument he’d need for adding a 2nd dog (which we don’t really have room for). He would LOVE to take the pup along when he goes away. Pretty sure he misses her more than me! 🙂 Great photos! Wish it was more fall-y here!

    How do the dogs react being separated? I’m not sure Sampson and Delilah would be happy. So who is winning the photo contest?
