DogDaz Zoo: Happy Whistle-Pig Day

These Ground Hogs are such funny weather predicting creatures. They have names like woodchuck, land-beaver, and whistle-pig. Our regional prognosticator is named Punxsutawney Phil. Phil is known as the “Seer of Seers,” the “Prognosticator of Prognosticators” and the “Most Photographed Pennsylvanian.” People in Pennsylvania dress up in top hats and tails and have this whole big event each year to see if we are going to have an early spring or late winter. Leave it to a rodent to let us know.

Groundhog day actually designates the middle point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. There are 6 more weeks until the Vernal Equinox, which marks the beginning of spring. No matter what Phil says – SPRING IS COMING!!!!! Make way for crocus and daffodils.

Caturday: In Ancient Times

“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods;

they have not forgotten this.” – Terry Pratchett

Caturday: Mouse In The House

Yep, you heard that right. There is definitely a mouse in the house. We have been sitting vigil on the sink mat for days and staring under the stove. Mom says any rodent that would come into the Zoo should know better than to show its snout with Noel and Mini on the prowl. Days and Nites (mostly nights) just waiting. Noel gets tired so she sleeps on the mat just in case the rodent appears.

You don’t stand a chance you little varmint!

Caturday: My Window To The World

Noel here to discuss my herb window.

The herb window is one of my favorite places in the house. However, the window is made up of single panes of glass and they freeze up on cold nights. Mom has a curtain up so that the rest of the kitchen does not freeze also. As you know, I like to take my meals in the herb window (even though I am too old now to jump up on the counter to get there). Mom lifts me up from the floor nowadays and then I sneak behind the curtain and chow down.

Gosh, I love my window to the world. I see everything and everyone sees me.

Caturday: Butterfly Nose

Stella has the most beautiful coloring and a butterfly for a nose.

Many people mistake her for Mini in pictures but Mini is gray.

Sadly, they hate each other so you will never see a picture of them together. V tries and tries to get them to be nice by putting a screen across Stella’s door so they can see each other, but it just ain’t happening.

Stella wants to be alone and that is that.

Caturday: Reinstated Blog Assistant

Hi. Noel here. Mom said that I haven’t helped her in her office for a very long time. Mostly I have been sleeping on her recliner in the living room or on a dining room chair. But the other day something scared me and I wandered down the long hall and found Mom’s office. That reminded me that I used to spend a lot of time in there helping her do her work and especially create the DogDaz blog.

Mom gave me my old job back as her office assistant, but mostly I can be found sleeping in the guest office chair, which has now forced Jolie to sleep on Louise’s old office pillow on the floor.

Displacing the little dog is a great perk of getting my office job back. She had taken over the guest chair and now it is mine!

I think I will keep this job for a while, or at least until I forget where the office is again.

Caturday: Memories – Sweet & Painful

Sofie Bear would have been 12 years old yesterday. Here she is with Mr. Nine from a few years back. Nine would have been 12 this coming February. They passed too young at 11 years old. I miss them both a whole lot and I am thankful I got to spend so many years with them.

Memories are a double-edged sword: both sweet and painful at the same time.*

*I am not sure where I heard that quote, or who said it, but it makes a lot of sense.

Caturday: This Is Not My Box

    • This is not my box. I am not the one responsible for the constant nibbling on the sides of the box and leaving cardboard shavings everywhere.

    • This is not my box. I am not the one that jumps in and out of it constantly when the laser red dot goes off and makes its evil marks on the wall all around the box.

    • This is not my box. I am not the one that sleeps in it most days.

But, I felt like today, it should be my box. So I took it! – Queen Noel, the Christmas Cat

(I am just going to ignore Mini.)

Caturday: Pay Attention

Queen Noel, the Christmas cat, here. Somedays, well mostly every day, Mom does not pay enough attention to me. Tonight I actually had to come all the way up on the couch and start pawing at her to get her even to notice me. I meowed and meowed, right pawed and left pawed, and she just wanted to take pictures of me instead of doing what I wanted, which was get more food. I am just not sure about these humans sometimes. They really are worthless for anything except food and a good cuddle.

PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!!
