Mom has decided that since she must stay 6 feet away from all other humans that a dog leash is a perfect 6-foot tool to ensure the perfect distance is achieved. We learned a new term last week called ‘social distancing.’ The perfect way to practice social distancing is to have at least 2 dogs, but 3 or even 4 may be better, all on 6-foot leads, spread out around the human at the center.
On a serious note, please take this terrible earth-shattering COVID-19 situation seriously my friends. Only you can protect you and your loved ones. We have a great deal to learn about this virus, transmission, illness, and recovery. This is not a drill! Wash your paws for at least 20 seconds (I sing the ABC alphabet song), limit human contact (which means 4X as many pet cuddles on a normal day), and be smarter about what you put in your mouth (tell Sofie that, please).
Mom is keeping us very close today because she needs to be in a good vibe bubble: it is her birthday and the world is making her feel older than dirt.
Noel, the Christmas-cat, will be 13 years young on Tuesday. If you search ‘Noel’ on the sidebar, you will probably find more posts at the DogDaz Zoo on her then any of the other animals. Maybe because she is the oldest of the current pack, or maybe because she is so photogenic. I can’t believe that this little white terribly ill rescued kitten grew into this amazing white rabbit-fur purr machine. Noel has the Feline Herpes (FVR) virus, which almost left her blind. I had to carry her for a month close to my chest to keep her breathing and now look at her: Queen of the Zoo.
I was standing in the yard with the dogs and one of the many many cardinals that live in my yard, graced me with a quiet moment so that I could take a photo of him. The other day, there were 4 vibrant red males in my mock orange bush, but alas, I did not have my phone/camera.
