DogDaz Zoo: Do What’s Right – MLK

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

Black and White Sunday: BEEEEEP

Now that I am back to work the cats have decided they are going to take over the desk. It is kind of scary however when they both want to take it over at the same time. That is when fur can fly and things can become a CATastophy quit quickly. Papers tossed on the floor, files a mess, you get the idea.

I went to get coffee the other day and as I am walking back to my office I hear – beep, beep, beeeeeep, beeeeeep. I found Noel sleeping on my laptop keyboard (it was warm and cozy and a purrfect place for a nap) but it freaked me out. Luckily she only opened about 27 windows and did not delete anything.

How many cats do you have on your desk (and/or dogs on the floor)?

Caturday: My Window To The World

Noel here to discuss my herb window.

The herb window is one of my favorite places in the house. However, the window is made up of single panes of glass and they freeze up on cold nights. Mom has a curtain up so that the rest of the kitchen does not freeze also. As you know, I like to take my meals in the herb window (even though I am too old now to jump up on the counter to get there). Mom lifts me up from the floor nowadays and then I sneak behind the curtain and chow down.

Gosh, I love my window to the world. I see everything and everyone sees me.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: We’re Back

Hello. Charles here at the Zoo.

So much has happened in just a month since Mom had to take a break from blogging because of her eye stuff. We have tons to tell you about our holiday season. For right now, I want you to know that everyone did very well and did not destroy too much – though the pesty cats did try and play with the balls on the tree and Mini terrorized the Christmas village. I have recovered great from my bladder surgery and feel like a young dog again which is really the most important thing. Health and happiness is my motto.

Christmas and Channukah collided this year (which means more presents for us). It was exhausting with all the wrapping paper to play in and the boxes and bags. What awesome fun it was having our young human family around for food and festivities (Mom says ‘young’ is a relative term now that the kids are grown). More people to give us cuddles and treats! (Maybe food and fun should be my motto?)

Mom made us sit for a ton of silly holiday pictures. What is it with these humans and their photo opportunities?

More stories and antics to come in 2023. Happy belated New Year, blog friends. We missed you.

DogDaz Zoo: Happy Holidays

We wish all our wonderful blog family an awesome holiday season and a wonderful 2023 New Year celebration.

Mom is having eye surgery this week and will not be blogging again until next year. Hopefully, she will be seeing her way to more posts in early January. (Get the pun, ‘seeing her way’ – Bark Out Loud)

Thank you for following and commenting and just being our blog friends. We appreciate you and hope to ‘see’ you all in the New Year.

Noel (the Christmas cat), Charles Mugwump, Stella, Mini Cooper, Jolie, & Mom

Black and White Sunday: Fav Holiday Pic

My all-time favorite holiday picture is of puppy Louise helping put the little tree in the back of the Prius. It is wonderful to have all these photographic memories to look back and smile on.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Caturday: Butterfly Nose

Stella has the most beautiful coloring and a butterfly for a nose.

Many people mistake her for Mini in pictures but Mini is gray.

Sadly, they hate each other so you will never see a picture of them together. V tries and tries to get them to be nice by putting a screen across Stella’s door so they can see each other, but it just ain’t happening.

Stella wants to be alone and that is that.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: New Holiday Look

Every year Mom, of course, has a furry merry holiday theme going on. This year she added me, Jolie, to the animals. I get to shine next to the spirit of Louise. After a million years of searching, she also found some holiday cats. Last year she ordered one from China and it never came. This year she jumped on it and got the last set in stock and drove many miles to pick it up (do you think she is obsessed). V said they look very ‘made in China’ with their pink ears, but Mom likes them a lot. Now almost everyone is represented (missing one cat at the moment but maybe the baby bear will stand in for Stella). I can’t wait to see what happens inside the house.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Strike A Pose

Jolie here: I am really enjoying my new winter clothes. Mom says I look awesome. It has gotten really cold in the mornings so a sweater and even a coat are required. Mom is contemplating something called boots too because I hate when my feet are wet, but I am not sure that I would like them. Don’t you think this sweater goes great with my coloring? Your loss Charles, you never liked to wear clothes anyway.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Rockin’ That Sweater

This is Jolie’s first winter with us. Because she has hair, not fur like Charles, I don’t know if she is cold. Luckily, his sweaters, which he hates, fit her. She likes them. Here she is impersonating Rockey Raccoon.

Have an awesome Black & White Sunday and welcome to meteorological winter.
