Wonderful Wednesday: Jolie, The True Lap Dog

Jolie here: I decided that Mom never had a true lap dog before. She is more used to lap cats. Big dogs always were near her but not as much on her, so they can’t be classified as lap dogs and all her other dogs, except Charles, were over 25 lbs.

Charlie, who is only 14 lbs, is a nice guy and all, but he is a couch dog, not a lap dog. Mom thinks it is because his joints always hurt so he doesn’t like to be ‘on’ someone, he likes to be next to someone. Yes, definitely a couch dog.

Me, on the other hand, I like a lap. I like to be in the center of everything even if Mom is working. I am sure the people on the other end of her camera calls like to see me much more than they want to see Mini Cooper, who is always on the desk or in the window. I am the #1 lap dog in this zoo.

Does your human let you sit on their lap when they are working? Do you give them a choice?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Wonderful Wednesday: Welcome – Now FEED US!

When I come home this is the welcoming committee.

Mostly they are saying ‘feed us!’

They crack me up. I did not realize when I was taking the last picture of Jolie, Charles, and Mini up the steps that Noel was at the top actually looking down to see when supper was coming. It amazes me sometimes that Mini Cooper is actually the 3rd dog. She is quick to be at the front door and wants to be part of whatever the pups are doing. Luckily, the dogs have never minded.

Are we boring you, Charles?

Note: If you may be wondering about the missing stair side piece. One day, about 20 years ago, V wanted to see what was under the fancy piece. And, so it has remained. That is life at the DogDaz Zoo.

Monday Mischief: Stay Safe As You Boo

Happy Halloween!

Our 3 recent DogDaz angels, Louise, Sofie, and Nine, are here to remind you to keep your pets inside tonight. Humans are the most dangerous creatures around so don’t trust your cats and dogs to be safe on a night like this.

Louise would have been 13 years old today. Happy bday in dog heaven, Lulu.

Now go make some mischief and let us know what kind of mischief you got into?

Yes, Louise is in the picture with the skeletons below, but you have to look really hard to see the big black beauty.

Wonderful Wednesday: Stair View

Jolie has joined a long line of dogs (and cats) that look at the world through the banister.

Where is your favorite place to catch the action?

Monday Mischief: WeekAway

Halloween is getting closer and we are getting ready to haunt. We can’t wait! Do you have a costume* picked out yet?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

*Apology for misspelling in the original post. Sadly, my eyesight is failing, and spell correction likes to change words on me sometimes and I missed that one.

Black and White Sunday: 1 Out Of 3

Missing Louise and Sofie a lot these days. Sometimes grief sneaks up on you when you are not even thinking about it. Maybe it is because Halloween would have been Louise’s 13th birthday and Sofie would have been 12 on Thanksgiving. I know that Sir Charles misses them too. He doesn’t play with any toys since Sofie left last March. He always wanted to be near her and play with whatever she would play with, even though she was not always the kindest to him.

Mini Cooper has taken to Louise’s bed and blanket in the living room now that the days are colder. And even Jolie has been sleeping on Lulu’s bed on occasion. I knew if I left it, someone would move in. I did take away the other big bed because the ‘Littles’ mostly sleep on the couches and I was able to reclaim some floor space.

Maybe the tilt of the globe in the fall has me on a tilt. I am missing Mr. Nine, the cat, too, who also passed last March. We are thinking about a kitten possibly for Mini. She misses him terribly and takes her anger out on poor Noel (who is going to be 16). With only one male animal in the house (Charles) maybe a little boy kitty will balance out the energy. Don’t you think its time for a kitten?

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday. Enjoy the changes of the season.

Wonderful Wednesday: Monster Walk

Henry was walking Skeletor and Catzilla. Then it started to rain. Jolie was barking at them (you can see her in the background).

Henry is wearing a Petco Animal Charities T-shirt. Remember to Adopt don’t Shop!

Black and White Sunday: NiteNite Series #76

I couldn’t pass up the photo opportunity when Charlie nestled between V and me. It is only on a rare occasion that he lets us sit next to each other without jumping in the middle. Usually, he wants me to move so he can have V all to himself. On this particular day, he just cuddled down and went right to sleep. We don’t mind his antics because he is so darn cute. How can you not love that face?

Have a wonderful Black & White Sunday!
