DogDaz Zoo: Opening Day

Yeah! Memorial day weekend is opening day for the big pool. Don’t worry that it looks like a lagoon. Mom says the winter was so mild that all the green stuff called ‘algae’ had a lot of time to grow. She says it will burn away when the sun comes out (and after she throws in a ton of chlorine). She can’t go in anytime soon anyway because of her foot cast though she is still doing all the prep-work. That lady never sits still for long. We got a new friend this year, he’s called a ‘minion.’ We think his name is ‘Stuart.’

We can’t wait until the ducks try to swim in the lagoon so that we can chase them away. For now, we wait.

Have a great weekend!

Wordless Wednesday: They’re Back

Louise and Sofie finally returned from Sonya’s Dog Farm after 2 weeks away. This means that Charles and Mini Cooper no longer are the only two critters that wanted to be on Mommy while she recuperates. The big dogs jumped right up and made themselves at home. Charles decided that it was best to seek the highest point on the bed for safety (Mom’s foot pillow). Isn’t Mom lucky that she has all of us taking care of her and making sure that she is protected on all sides?

Monday Mischief: Harold and Maude Return

Every year Harold and Maude, or their children or grandchildren, have come back to nest in the front yard. Ducks do that. The experts at Ducks Unlimited say that ducks “imprint information about their home breeding and wintering areas and use navigational cues to return to them. Adult female ducks often return to former breeding sites.”

We have been blessed for the last 16 year’s as we have watched Harolds and Maudes waddle around the grounds, swim in the pool, and ultimately waddle their ducklings down to the river.

Luckily the ducks are in the front yard. The dogs would love to chase them, and do roust them if they fly into the back or worse in the pool, but the front is leash only territory so the duckies are ‘kind of’ safe. They must feel at home since they keep coming back.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Small Pleasures.

Charles is a happy sort. He really is enjoying that Mom has to work lying down, so he gets to snuggle up close and help her type. Small pleasures.

Happy Sunday.

Monday Mischief: We Help

Mom has a boo boo on her foot (a plate and 5 screws). She is not allowed to put any weight on it for 2 weeks and then she has to wear this cast boot for another 6 weeks (if she heals well). We think it is fun that she has to stay in bed all day. We have been fighting over who helps her the most. Louise and Sofie are away at Sonya’s Dog Farm until Mom can put her foot on the floor again. Mom is sad because she misses her big dogs, but we don’t. The house is now owned by us little critters only! We cats like that there is no Sofie chasing us down the hall. But, Charles doesn’t get any walks, just out in the yard, and is starting to look a bit portly. And, Nine seems afraid of the boot and hides under the bed.

Mom says we are a big help and make her smile. I think she is ready to be done with this cast thing already.

Reported by the big helpers – Noel and Mini Cooper

Wordless Wednesday: Charles, 4 Months & Forever

Charles has been at the Zoo for 4 months now. You would think he’s been here his whole 8 1/2 years. He has made it clear that he is home and we are committed to being there for him for the rest of his days. Charles had at least 4 different homes in his life and has a bite history. He definitely suffers from ‘little dog’ syndrome. I am wondering, however, if he might have trouble seeing (I notice cataracts) and could that be driving some of his ‘nippy’ behavior? He is teaching all of us ‘little dog’ ways and we are teaching him how to run with the pack. He makes us all smile (well, except maybe Sofie, who thinks he is a pest). I never really thought about adding a small dog to the pack, that level was reserved for cats, but Charlie is definitely growing on me.

 Happy Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Pink Snow

We love the pink snow when it falls. It looks like the white stuff put it isn’t cold. We don’t know if Charles ever saw pink snow before because he tried to eat it. Pink snow makes us happy. Do you have pink snow? This is our friend Amy’s yard (she’s a yellow lab). She has lots of trees that line her drive. We only have one cherry tree and it is little and get’s white flowers, not pink. Pink snow is slippery and Mommy worries that we are going to slip. Mommy always worries.
