Monday Mischief: DogDaz December Review

We have had a good animal year at DogDaz Zoo. Though Louise had some surgery in the summer and then got sick in November, she is on the mend. When I look back at 12 months of running and jumping and whining and catfights, I realize how blessed we are. 1 second a day gives you a great review of the DogDaz year through cats and dogs and birds and rabbits and the occasional skink. Did you know that there are over 6 minutes of seconds in a year? If that blows your mind, just skip below and watch December. Turn up the sound and dance along.

Thank you all for being part of the Zoo and watching our antics. Here is 2018 in review.

Here are each month’s videos separately (I started doing this in March): March, April, May, June, July*, August, September, October,  November and, finally, this month,

December 

*Opps! I never posted July’s 1 review so here it is too.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Monday Mischief: Harold and Maude Return

Every year Harold and Maude, or their children or grandchildren, have come back to nest in the front yard. Ducks do that. The experts at Ducks Unlimited say that ducks “imprint information about their home breeding and wintering areas and use navigational cues to return to them. Adult female ducks often return to former breeding sites.”

We have been blessed for the last 16 year’s as we have watched Harolds and Maudes waddle around the grounds, swim in the pool, and ultimately waddle their ducklings down to the river.

Luckily the ducks are in the front yard. The dogs would love to chase them, and do roust them if they fly into the back or worse in the pool, but the front is leash only territory so the duckies are ‘kind of’ safe. They must feel at home since they keep coming back.

Monday Mischief: Life is Ruff

Osprey Sand

Sand is so cool. Especially when you have a triple coat of fur like I do. The Osprey platform disintegrated in the water after all these years, so the Sea Eagles moved to the tree over the boat ramp. Mom Osprey does not like that we dogs were playing around her tree trunk. Dad Osprey swooped us, but our Mom was not fast enough with her camera to get a good picture. Life on the river is RUFF..

Monday Mischief: Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons

The first days of SUMMER and every family was busy teaching their youngsters to swim. There was a paddling of very little ducklings and also a raft of adolescent ducks on the creek and several gaggles of geese on the river.

We want to help them swim.

Mom says no!

We say “No fair!!!”

It’s summer and we want to splash.

Wordless Wednesday: Cold Day and a Cormorant

Cold Day Cormant

I had to do a lot of calling because the dogs wanted to swim out to the platform in the icy water and eat the Cormorant.  I am afraid she would have eaten them.

WW 2.3.16 3

It is interesting that there is 2+ feet of snow up by the house but not on the banks of the river.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
