Black and White Sunday: Favorites

This is one of my favorite pictures of Noel from May 2015. It is hard to believe that was 6 years ago. We used to have this bench seat in the kitchen and she loved to sit under the table and look out. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: Getting Along

Mini Cooper has been lying with Noel on the bed lately, when she is not chasing her down the hall. I am not sure why Mini and Nine have been picking on the old lady so much, but sometimes they even attack her when she is in the litter box (that is a low blow). When things are quiet, like in the picture above, they are so sweet.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday! Happy Easter to those who celebrate.

Wonderful Wednesday: Noel Turns 14

At 14 years young, Noel is doing fantastic as the Queen of the Zoo. She mostly naps, as always, but has really found her rhythm between Mom’s bed and the herb window, and occasionally a chair, couch, or dog bed.

It is hard to believe from this very sickly kitten with Feline herpes, who had to be held and medicated and hand-fed for months, she has turned into this silly, happy, matriarch of the DogDaz_Cats2 Zoo.

Happy 14th Noel. We love you!

Wonderful Wednesday: See You Soon

Mom is going to have major back surgery next week and she will be literally, laid up, for a while. Louise and Sofie are going to have a little winter vacation with Sonya, the dog whisperer, for a few weeks while she is recuperating. Mom is not sure when she will be able to start walking long distances again, or when she can take a chance with 55 and 70 lbs dogs pulling her on the end of the leads.

Charlie and the cats will keep her warm until the big dogs return. Hopefully, it all goes well and she will be back walking the big dogs and blogging again in no time.

Don’t go too far away. DogDaz will be back soon.

Black and White Sunday: Our Lil’ Terror

Nine has been getting into so much mischief lately. I am never sure what or who he is going to attack at any moment. He has been ripping up the carpet, especially the stairs, and all the fronts of the couches. As you know, he is merciless about chasing Noel and he and Mini get into some good fights too. The pheromone collar worked well for a long time, but now it seems to not really calm him at all. He is mostly a sweet boy, but he is making us crazy with his antics. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis at 9 years of age. Who knows.

Monday Mischief: Marshmallow Removal Tips

Yep. Someone, whose name I am pretty sure starts with an ‘S,’ got into something in V’s office when we were visiting Stella. I was not sure what it was at the time but I caught her eating a bag that looked like it must have contained some icing or something, at least that is what I thought.

But, alas, it must have been marshmallow* because later I found white sticky stuff on the rug and one of her stuffy toys. Well, now I know how to get marshmallows out of the carpet.

Simply rub a few ice cubes on the spot until the marshmallow gets hard. Then using a backside of a butter knife, scrape the frozen stuff until it comes away from the fibers. Repeat the freeze/scrape action until it is gone.

Mini thinks Sofie is just downright dumb!  And tonight she is dumb with a tummy ache (but she is fine).

*Marshmallows can be dangerous for pets. Not just because they are all sugar, but because they may contain Xylitol which can cause almost immediate liver damage.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wonderful Wednesday: Bring on the Roaring ’20s

This month marks 9 years that DogDaz has been on WordPress. It is incredible the blog friends that we have made. The moments we have shared together in cyberspace. The animals that have entered our lives and those that have left holes in our hearts.

Our wish for 2021 is to end this horrible human plague and to get back to a fuller, more active life. To hug the ones we love and to be able to hold them again. The Spanish Flu in 1918 ushered in the decade we called the roaring ’20s.

“In the Roaring Twenties, a surging economy created an era of mass consumerism, as Jazz-Age flappers flouted Prohibition laws and the Harlem Renaissance redefined arts and culture.”History.com

Maybe this plague will usher in a new roaring ’20s, with a surging economy again, but a focus on redefining civil justice and environmental urgency.

From our Zoo to yours, may you find health and happiness in the New Year and may you always be surrounded by fur, licks, love, and pet hair. Here is to a better tomorrow. Happy 2021!

Black and White Sunday: Goodbye, Snowey

I loved this holiday decoration (picture from 2016). This year when I went to set it up, I found that a mouse had eaten a hole in the snowman (I keep this stuff in the garage). I went to find a replacement on the internet but they wanted a ton of $$ for it. I bought it originally at a discount store for a good price since I try to not spending too much on the decorations. I am sad. It was a fun one. But we do get to enjoy it in pictures. So this year I got to buy something new :-). Do you have decorations you love year after year?

Happy Holidays!

Black and White Sunday: The 2d Day

On the 2d day of Hanukkah, Noel was wondering why this big thing was taking up so much real estate in her sunning window.
