DogDaz Zoo: VACATION!

It is vacation time. But, don’t go far (we sure aren’t).

Mom is going to take some time off from computers to rest her eyes.

We will return soon.

Have a wonderful Independence Day!

Wonderful Wednesday: Telling Time By Trees

Louise under the big tree 2020

When I look out on to the backyard, under the big tree, I sometimes see dogs that have gone ahead and left us for the big meadow. Louise remembers. She lies under the tree today just like she did years ago with Squash (above circa 2011). Nowadays, Sofie and Charles lie there with her.

Sofie and the tree shadow

The trees have always sheltered me and taken care of this yard and provided homes for so many critters. In the last month, many of my neighbors have removed over 10 old-growth trees, for varying reasons. These landscape changes, though needed, make me sad. I tell time by trees. As they disappear, I fear I will lose track of time.

Monday Mischief: Hot Summer In The Suburbs

MM 7.18.16

Louise, here. It is getting hot and humid outside. Can’t we just sit in the grass instead of walking on the hot pavement? Why does Mom not understand that dogs are not meant to be outside on days like this! Can we move somewhere that the weather is always nice, like California? We heard that you never have to cancel anything in California because the weather is always beautiful. But then again, we also heard the ground shakes sometimes and there are drought and fires and mudslides. I guess a few humid weeks in the Mid-Atlantic may not be so bad after all.

Stay cool, Peeps!

Remind your humans that if the street is too hot for their hand, it is too hot for your paws.

DogDaz Zoo: A Daddy Roll

Happy Father’s Day! 

I loved to sit on my father’s shoulders. He would walk down the street with me way up top and we would play a game he called ‘high bridge, low bridge.’ He would stoop down when a low branch came so that I cleared the danger. I was so lucky to have a man in my life who was a true Daddy.

Someone asked me one thing that I learned from my Dad and I said ‘kindness.’ Can you name something you learn from your Dad?

Monday Mischief: Safety from the Storm

Storm season brings with it many nights of stressed-out dogs and no sleep for me. I am trying a new thing by creating a tent that Louise and Sofie can hide under or just throwing a blanket over Sofie. Louise will stay under a lean-to as long as I am with her, but Sofie is just too freaked to deal with it. The blanket over her, nose exposed, while I cuddle her tight seems to soothe a little, but not much works. The thunder vest has been worthless for many years. I tried Xanax but the storms either come earlier or later than expected, so dosing is hard. It doesn’t stop them from getting upset, but they do seem to fall asleep earlier.

Sofie has decided that she needs to be up on my bed and chew on my pillows to protect me, I guess, from the noise.

Noise is our enemy at the Zoo. I’m glad that most fireworks displays were canceled this year (I hate the noise too). But that won’t stop my neighbors from doing their loud and noisy things from now until August.

Have any of you tried dog headphones to shut out noise?

Black and White Sunday: Honoring Our Flag

In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The Flag Resolution, passed on June 14, 1777, stated: “Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” This design was created by Francis Hopkinson, a Continental Congressman from New Jersey and a consultant to the design of the Great Seal of the United States. – Wikipedia

Caturday: Throw Or Keep?

It is funny where cats choose to sleep. This was Nine’s favorite perch (in the cat area right behind the couch – aka the dining room). But for several months after we got the giant cat-tree, he ignored it. V said, maybe get rid of it. It wobbles and we have no idea how safe it is; it easily falls over and many a morning I will find it laying down on the ground.

But just the other day, he started sleeping in it again. Every night this week. while we watch TV he has cuddled up and slept there. It is hard to throw anything out at this Zoo because everything seems to get a new life after awhile.

Throw or keep?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!
