DogDaz Zoo: Here’s To A Cleaner, More Manageable 2015

It is so hard to clean up after you have a good time.  Whether it is holiday wrapping paper, the dishes, toys, or your blog.  But clean up is what I need to do.  I love my blog and interacting with all you animals and your humans.  But for my sanity, after 2,208 posts and more than 20,600 comments, in 1,815 consecutive days, DogDaz is going to take a break until February 2015.

I am not sure that I can do it (you see I am addicted to blogging and commenting and reading) but I need to clean up and catch up.  31 days without blogging is kind of freaking me out.  But it will be a good test of my will power and my conviction to a more manageable 2015.  

My Reader and Follows have become so large that I have lost the ability to read and comment on all the sites I want to.  And now that I work in another state my work days and commute are crazy long and, as you can guess, my blog time is sorely limited. I must find a more manageable and balanced way to DogDaz.

I believe that a blog is a two-way conversation, and that comments are meaningful; commenting and replying are important to me. I don’t want to unfollow any of my blog friends, but I know that I just can’t give everyone the attention they deserve.  This is a dilemma.

DogDaz will return in February.  Please come back (our greatest fear is losing you).

Happy NEW YEAR to all!

The zoo and I are going to get a fresh start.  Here’s to a cleaner, more manageable 2015!

Are you ready for New Years?  Do you have a furball to kiss at midnight?

Every animal deserves a home.

You can make this holiday season something special for a special animal!

Monday Mischief: Mini Cooper – Office Helper

IMG_2112

Mini Cooper decided that Mommy can be very boring when she is working on her computer and not paying much attention.  Mini walks across all the keyboards, tries to swat things on the monitors, but after awhile, settles down for a nice office nap.

What mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Shared Traditions

12.28.14 alt

Stella and Noel are in the window with Hanukkah lights and the Christmas pickles.  We run out of places to put all the holiday treats we make.

Louise is a great helper when it comes to selecting a Christmas tree.  And yes, we have down sized so much the tree fits in the trunk.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

DogDaz Zoo: Boxing Day

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/df6/30723553/files/2014/12/img_2284.jpg

We got a Bark Box from Peanut and tons of toys from Mom. Kitties got lots of feathery stick things. We gave Mom extra barks, licks, and cuddles. Happy clean up day.

Follow Up Friday: Wrapping Up 2014

Today is Follow-up Friday hosted by Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.  Since this is the last Friday of 2014, we thought we would recap a wonderful year in pictures for you.

2014 In Review

 

From the snow covered river last January, to acrobatic cat antics, the heat of the summer, the gorgeous fall, the addition of zoo member 6, Mini Cooper, and now the winter rains, we had a great DogDazCats2 year.

That’s our year in review. Thanks for playing along with us.  Check out the hop below and you can go play with others.
