Wonderful Wednesday: Snow?

 

So far this year the snow events have been very light to non-existent. The wind, however, is another story. Sofie, and now Charles, are barking at the slightest rustling of the trees. Today it actually sounds like a small freight train coming through the yard. I am not sure when real winter is coming to the Mid-Atlantic this year, but February and March are usually our worst months, so time will tell.

Stay dry and warm.

Wonderful Wednesday: Sofie the ‘Goldilocks’ Bear

Mom! Louise has all the toys and she isn’t sharing.

This picture is from 2013. It cracks me up. Sofie still does this 7 years later. Steps are a great vantage point, and also, it seems her body fits perfectly. I have found over the years, especially because I document almost everything, that behaviors don’t change much. Louise never lies on the steps. Maybe because she is too big? Charles will sit on the steps but I have never seen him lie down. Maybe because he is too small and it would be vulnerable. Sofie’s stair is ‘Just Right.’ Now I know why I named her ‘Sofie Bear,’ because she is just like Goldilocks in the story of the Three Bears.

A DogDaz Hanukkah Story

Tonight we celebrate the first night of the festival of Hanukkah.

12.16.14

 When I walked out of my office, Sofie was playing dreidel all by herself. “But Sofie,” I said, “Hanukkah doesn’t start until tonight.”

I bet you it was Mini Cooper who stole the gelt (candy) and the dreidel (top) from the Hanukkah table in the living room and gave them to Sofie (to get her in trouble).

Sofie was not exactly sure what to do with these new prizes, so she brought them to me (good girl!). Dogs don’t get chocolate gelt in this house!

On the first night of Hanukkah, we like to play the dreidel game. In the case of the dogs, we use bones instead of gelt. But someone seems to always spoil the game by running away with a dreidel and try to eat it.

DogDaz Zoo is sending you light and love this holiday season.

May each day bring you closer to your dreams.

Let the holiday games begin!

Wonderful Wednesday: Wood You Believe That

The gang in woodcut. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Mom needs to take a few weeks off from blogging. She is having eye surgery because can’t see very well. We shall return as soon as the fog clears which hopefully is before Yule. We promise we will take good care of her and make sure she has tons of licks and love. SEE you soon!

Wonderful Wednesday: We Are Hungry! Always!

This is a picture of Louise and Sofie almost immediately after eating breakfast. You would think they didn’t just have full bowls of the most nutritious high-quality dog food.

“Whatever Mommy is eating must be better and must be shared!!”

They crack me up.

Do your animals EVER stop begging? What you don’t see in this picture is Noel, the Christmas cat, on the kitchen table trying to steal my bagel while I am looking at the dogs.

Wonderful Wednesday: Besties

Sofie & Louise 2012

When it is cold outside, I like to remember warm sunny days to help me get through the frost. I can’t believe this picture was 7 years ago. In the end, if Louise really wants the toy, she will take it away from Sofie in one yank. But she is really kind to Sofie and lets her have things (like a good older sister should). The green carrot is long gone, but the memories are golden.

Peanut just loves to have fun with Noel on SnapChat. I must say she does wonderful things.

Be safe out there tomorrow and remember to keep all pets inside. There are many stupid spooky people out there, especially for black cats and dogs.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Wonderful Wednesday: The Master of Fall

Squash E Bear Fall 2007

Squash E Bear
Fall 2007

It wouldn’t be fall without a look back at the master of fall himself, Squash E. Bear. He looked great in the fall leaves with his big fluffy coat. Squash was the kind of dog that people would just stop and look at; “Can I pet him?” “What is he?” Once people actually stopped their car when I was walking him to ask about him. And then there was the time he and I were in a pet food store buying food and there was one of those weekend pet adoption fairs going on and someone actually tried to buy him off me. He just always attracted people and other animals to him.

What are some of your favorite animal fall moments?

Miss you every day, Big Guy. Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
