DogDaz Zoo: Loving Fearful Dogs – Socializing Waylon (Part 3)

DogDaz Zoo: Loving Fearful Dogs – Socializing Waylon (Part 3)

DogDaz friend, Jeanne Bellis, is doing outstanding work taking hard to place dogs and helping them socialize and reintegrate to new homes. Here is Part 3 of the Socializing Waylon series. Waylon, a catahoula-cattledog mix, was in a bind. His owner, a US Marine, was being deployed overseas and Waylon, a dog aggressive, fearful mess, had only one hope – Bellis Boot Camp. Follow Jeanne as she socializes Waylon with her pack. It’s amazing what patience, smarts, good training and love can do. This is the final episode of Waylon’s journey to socialization. Now he is ready for adoption. Let’s find him a new family to love.

We hope you enjoyed this little series. Do you find the “DogDaz Zoo: Loving Fearful Dogs” posts of interest? Would you like me to do more of them? Let me know in the comments. I am also glad to have guest posts on the topic. – Lorian, the Zoo Keeper

DogDaz Zoo: Bacon LOVE’s Noel

We can’t believe that Miss Noel, the Christmas Cat, is a star. Bacon interviewed her on June 8th at PIGLOVE What an honor to be on Bacon’s blog.

We’ll let Bacon tell you ABOUT himself.

“I’m a miniature pot bellied pig.  My mom/dad adopted me when I was a mere three weeks old and I’m just a tad bit spoiled.  This blog is about ‘my misadventures’ in life here at the Hotel Thompson with my mom/dad and other friends listed below.  We try our best to keep the humans on their toes.  Someone has to and trust me – it’s a hard job with my mom and dad.  They are always getting into trouble!  My main goal on my blog is to bring a smile to your face.  If I did that, I did my job well.”

Dear Readers – If Mom had her foot on straight she would not have thought that the interview was on June 18, when Bacon told her it was going to be on June 8th, and then miss posting on my big day. Mom hopes you all go visit Bacon and crew and let them know that DogDaz sent you and read my interview – since every cat needs their 15 minutes of fame and that was mine. – Gee Thanks, Mom – Noel, the Christmas Cat

DogDaz Zoo: Happy 3rd Birthday, Mini Cooper

Mini Cooper behaves more like a dog than a cat. She is extremely social and more forward than any cat that has every been at the zoo. She greets everyone at the door, tries to go for walks with the dogs, and is ever present, just like a dog. She wants to be on your lap whenever possible and loves to watch the fish in her fish tanks. She is a great little girl. Happy 3rd birthday, Mini Cooper, you bring us great joy!

DogDaz Zoo: Honor Those That Keep Us Free

This Memorial Day in the United States, please remember to honor our troops, our vets, and our fallen. Freedom costs us so much. Never take it for granted.

In loving memory of my Dad a US Army Sargeant in World War II. He never talked about it much, but was proud to serve. Came home with a bullet in his leg for the rest of his life. Dad refused the ‘Purple Heart’ medal*, as thousands of other soldiers did during that war, because he did not feel he earned it after seeing how badly wounded other’s were.

*More than a million Purple Hearts have been awarded since General Washington’s Badge of Military Merit was revived in 1932.  The unique heart-shaped decoration continues to widely recognized by Americans.  It also continues to be prized by all who receive it, probably because the award of a Purple Heart does not depend on any superior’s favor or approval.  After all, the Purple Heart is unique as an egalitarian award in what is usually thought of as a nondemocratic, hierarchical military organization, since every man or woman in uniform who sheds blood or receives a qualifying injury while defending the nation receives the Purple Heart regardless of position, rank, status, or popularity.- ArmyHistory

DogDaz Zoo: LapWars

For the first 14 days after Mom’s surgery, she could not step on her foot. The big dogs were gone and it was very quiet. We helped her sleep. And we helped her work. And we fought over her lap. The first week all she did was sleep but then she started to work lying down. Mini and I would fight every morning to see who could win her lap. Mom called it LapWars: LapTop, LapDog, LapCat. At the end of the week, the score was Charles: 3 Mini: 4. Noel did not try to play, she just wanted to sit next to Mommy on her knee scooter and stare at her. Sadly, the big dogs return on Day 15, so we don’t know if LapWars will be permanently interrupted by Louise and Sofie pushing in to own Mommy. We will see – stay tuned to this channel because next week I am going to rule the lap! (Mom says 2 weeks down and 6 to go before any dog walking is possible). – Reported by Charles, the MugWump
