Monday Mischief: Summer’s End

The last days of summer fun are coming to a close in the DogDaz garden. Tomatoes are almost done and pool is closing Wednesday. Leaves are falling like rain.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz Zoo: We Will Never Forget

We shall never forget! Here is Mommy at the 9/11 North Tower Memorial pre-opening in 2012. Mommy grow up in NY so the devastation hit hard for her home state, but we live outside of Washington, DC now, so when the planes crashed at the Pentagon, the devastation directly affected our friends and family as well. May we never have to experience this terror again. – DogDaz Zoo

Caturday: I’m Back!

I want to know what a spoiled white old cat has to do to get some attention around here!

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Taking 5

Mom said she needs a break. Too much going on. She keeps repeating “so little time and so much to do.” Whatever that means. She said she will get back to blogging soon but with the nights turning cooler and the days getting shorter, she just decided that it is better to play with us than talk about us for a few weeks. See you in September.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Monday Mischief: Somethings Never Change

Mini Mischief from 2015. She still can be found in the laundry basket sometimes. Don’t every change, Mini Cooper!

Black and White Sunday: A Favorite

Looking back over old photos warms my heart. This was one of my favorites of Nine, Mini, and Noel. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Caturday: CatDaz of Summer, Too

Noel, loves her herb window, as you know. But in the heat of the summer (the CatDaz of summer), we put up a curtain because that space, with all its windows, heats up the kitchen and also burns the plants. But, it is not too hot in there for Ms. Noel. She still wants to eat in the window and spend most of her day. Like every good animal at the zoo, she is a FOMO*. So she occasionally sticks her head out to make sure nothing is happening that she should be involved in.

*FOMO: fear of missing out.

Wonderful Wednesday: It’s the DogDaz of Summer

We have reached the DogDaz of Summer. Those hot hot Mid-Atlantic August, thunderstorms every day, days. The dogs don’t mind so much. (Which is wonderful because Sofie and ultimately Louise, were terrified of the T-storms). They wander around the yard, which for the littles is a ton of space, and stay in the shade. Charlie mostly does his thing and after 10 minutes wants to go inside to the A/C. Jolie is still discovering that there is a wonderful world outside of a cage (after 6 1/2 yrs), so she never wants to go inside no matter how hot it is.

Stay cool, Pups!

Monday Mischief: New Office Help

Jolie is now my permanent office assistant. She finds all the stuff I drop on the floor during the day. I discovered she likes to chew ballpoint pens. Mini, who used to always be my desk assistant, is currently on strike and is not showing up to work. Hopefully, that will change.

Mostly I find Jolie sleeping on the job. But, I enjoy her company and she is fitting in the routine perfectly.

Black and White Sunday: Tossing

I threw out all of Louise’s sweaters and coats today (after 12 years she had a lot). I also got rid of Sofie and Louise’s yellow slicker raincoats too – I loved those (I put one in the thrift store recycle bag, but I don’t know if they will use it). The little dogs have no use for that stuff. The shelters don’t want the used coats or leashes, collars, and harnesses. And they don’t want the beds either, I checked. I have all these big dog beds that I can’t seem to just toss. Last Christmas I got Lulu this beautiful orthopedic one that she loved. So it is sitting against the wall of my office until I can figure out where it should go.

And what do you do with raised feeding dishes? No one wants them. Many of the leashes and collars had their names and my phone number on them so they went in the trash. My heart is just aching. I kept a few things to see if I could make coats for the littles, or maybe because I just couldn’t part with it all yet.

The picture is Louise and Sofie in 2018. Gosh, I miss those goofballs.
