DogDaz: Let The Sky Fall

Mom said that many humans think that today marks the end of the world. Actually, she wishes that today would mark the end of the violent world as we know it and the beginning of a new peaceful one with no more killing of innocents or war or any hate stuff. But alas, we have been told that our Mom is a big dreamer.

lu 1st snowFor us, today is the first day of winter, and hopefully, that means that white stuff will start falling from the sky soon. We love white stuff.  It is fun to eat and romp in. We really do hope the sky falls soon. 

Mom’s family came from Northern Europe and there they celebrated a festival at midwinter called Yule. We like festivals. From today on in the Northern Hemisphere, the days will start to get lighter and that is really welcome. 

From A to Z, it seems like most cultures needed festivals at this time of year to help them survive the winter. Mom started to tell us all their names and became overwhelmed: Beiwi, Brumalia, Chawmas, Christmas (we know that one), Maidyarem, Dongzhi, Goru, Hanukkah (we know that one too), Hogmanay, Inti Raymi, Junkanoo, Karachum, Koleda, Wren Day, Lenaia, Lohri, St Lucy’s Day…..    So we decided we are going to celebrate every day because somewhere, someone is, so we will too! 

Happy Solstice everyone and may the sky fall on your head and you catch it on your tongue and taste its sweetness – SNOW BALL FIGHT!!!!!

Throw the snow ball at someone and let us know who in the comments so we can throw one at them too!

DogDaz Zoo: Dog Gone Good Holiday

Doggone Xmas

A wonderful holiday was had by all. There were many gifts for large and small.img_0273

Sofie loved her Snowman and grabbed Louise’s Woodstock too.

So Louise took possession of both, from you know who.

Charles was so exhausted by all the day’s events he snuggled on the couch to get a much needed nap.

What a DOG GONE GREAT HOLIDAY we had at DOGDAZ ZOO. Hope you did too.

P.S. There a cat toys everywhere, in case you were worried that only the dogs had a fun.

Happy Boxing Day! Who doesn’t love a box?

DogDaz Zoo: Merry Christmas

xmas-2017

There is magic in the air.

There are lots of boxes and bows and things to play with.

All our people, large and small, are gathered together.

We love Christmas morning. It is a special day.

Christmas day at the DogDaz Zoo humbles us every year, as we celebrate how lucky we are to be a family, to be together, to be warm, to be fed, and most of all, to be loved.

May the light of the season guide you and bring you peace.

Your friends at the DogDaz Zoo

Sofie Bear, Louise, Charles (the Mugwump), Nine, Mini Cooper, Stella, and Noel (the Christmas Cat)

Around the Zoo everyone gets a stocking with treats.

They all seem to think they were good all year, but we know who was naughty and who was nice, don’t we SantaPaws?
