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.

Whether Phil sees his shadow or not today, this has been a roller coaster cold winter in the mid-Atlantic already. I plan on staying inside until summer comes.

Update 2019 at 7 am. Phil did not see his shadow. We will have an early spring!!

Monday Mischief: Snow Day

Snow days are fun because it isn’t that cold usually. The first snow made us happy.

Sofie likes to eat the snow.

Ultimately, there were about 10″ of snow which was almost over Charles’ head, but at this point, he was still able to jump through it.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Rare Glimpse of Stella

A rare video that Peanut took while she was sitting with Stella. Stella is such a lovey dovey girl to humans, it is a shame she does not like other cats so that she can’t be out in the general population. I think she would really enjoy all the people.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Monday Mischief: Memories of Falls Past

Squash Fall 2007

Last week it was summer and this weekend it turned to true fall. No longer does it seem like we get 4 seasons, now only 2. Fall was always Squash E Bears perfect time. His winter coat would start to bloom and he really looked like the perfect cuddle bear. Gosh, I miss that dog every day. I do love the current pack but there was something about Squash that even made people stop their cars in the middle of the street and ask about him. It was not really how he looked, though he was a formidable giant ball of fluff, he exuded this gentle energy that could be felt all around. Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the crisp air, the smell of cider and pumpkin. I love how the animals start to gather all their hordes of food for winter. The smell of wood fires. Oh my, I think I need to go make an apple pie. What do you love most about fall?

Black and White Sunday: Fall Sun

Charles loves to lie on the deck in the warm fall sun. I think he would stay there all day if I let him.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.
