Wonderful Wednesday: Remember Swimming Lessons

Year after year, the ducks return to teach their young how to swim in the river. Sofie wants to help, but they don’t appreciate it very much. Who taught you to swim?

DogDaz Zoo: July 4th – Keeping Your Dogs Calm

We hope that you have a wonderful holiday. Remember that many animals (and humans) are afraid of fireworks, so keep everyone indoors and safe.

PREPARE YOUR DOG FOR LOUD NOISES!

The 4th and 5th of July are the busiest days of the year for animal shelters and emergency vet clinics as frantic animals break in or out of houses and yards. Early preparation for the Fourth can save you and your pet a lot of grief. Here are some articles to help you prepare your dog.

Wonderful Wednesday: Twitch

Sofie gets so hot; I would too if I had to wear a fur coat in 100-degree weather. She always sleeps on the a/c floor grate or under the ceiling fan. Her big furry ears wiggle as the fan blows. Watch the video and count the twitches. Bark Out Loud, if that isn’t cute!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Wonderful Wednesday: ByeBye Brood X

Brood X Cicadas Are Emerging at Last

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/brood-x-cicadas-are-emerging-at-last1/

 

Every 17 years, millions of creatures, called Brood X cicadas, emerge in the Mid-Atlantic, and 2021 is one of those years. These odd insects are not locus or grasshoppers; they are entirely different insects and do not swarm or even fly very well. It sounds like we are on some alien planet when you go outside, but other than that, luckily they don’t like the sandy soil in my yard, so we don’t get many. This morning on our walk, one flew into the street right in front of Sofie and went, “buzz, buzz, zit,” and she wanted to investigate, but we just moved on. Turn your sound up and you can hear them in the background of Louise’s video below. This was about a week or so ago, at their peak.

They do feel really weird when they grab onto your legs, but they are harmless. Here are a few cicada husks left on a bush that I took this morning.

They are almost gone now, they’ve been here since mid-May and they last about 1 month. See you in 2038 Brood X.  (Good riddance!)

Wonderful Wednesday: I’m Too Sexy For My ….

Our pet whisperer/ animal sitter / groomer and all-time great caretaker, Sonya, gave me a handsome fur cut the other day. It takes a lot to keep me looking gorgeous as I do.

I even posed for Mom when she was taking pictures because I know that I look sooooo good. Aren’t I handsome? – Charles the Mugwump

Wonderful Wednesday: 3 in the Series of That Can’t Be Comfortable

Sofie’s head is smashed in the toys.

Louise is half off the bed.

None of them look comfortable to me.

Just Another Wednesday: Pilling

Mornings start out with 4 pills for Sofie and 1 for Louise.

Then at dinner, Sofie gets another 3, and now Charles gets 1.

On the alternate days, Louise gets 2 for breakfast, Sofie gets 4, and Charles gets 1.

It has gotten more and more complicated at the Zoo as we all age. The dogs are now 10,11, and 12.

Oh and that doesn’t include the monthly Heartworm or Flea stuff.

Thank goodness, only Noel, the Christmas Cat who is 14, gets something in the morning, and the other 3 cats are good, for now.

Does your human give you medicine? How do they do it (or maybe they do it so well you just don’t know)?
