Wonderful Wednesday: DaffyDillies

 

Year after year the spring flowers around the neighborhood start to pop-up in April. It is a wonderful time to walk around and see spring in action. But, Mom is not allowed to walk dogs yet so she is going back through some memory photos to enjoy her time with us in the sunshine. Soon she says, very soon she is hoping that she will get the OK to saddle up and walk 140 lbs of dog weight. We promise we won’t pull you down Mom, unless we see a squirrel, or another dog, or a fox, or….. oh, I guess that is why you are only allowed to walk 17 lb Charles.

Wonderful Wednesday: Happiness is a Treat-Ball

Sofie Bear here – I am very happy when I have a treat-ball filled with kibble to roll around and chew on. I love to pick it up in the air and smash it down on the kitchen floor so that it breaks in half and all the treats come out at one time (but that only happens when Mom doesn’t close it tight). When it doesn’t smash open, there seems to always be 1 or 2 treats left when I am too tired to smash or roll it anymore and that is when Mom shakes them out for me (that is nice of her, don’t you think).

My favorite is the ‘Pet Zone IQ‘ treat dispenser. Mom takes the middle stuff out to make it one big dispenser. When it has the divider in the middle, which is supposed to test how smart I am, it takes to long to get the stuff out and I get frustrated and it stops being fun. I think this is my 3rd or 4th one because I smash them so hard they break.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE TREAT TOY?

Wonderful Wednesday: Conversations with Sofie Bear

You need to understand that I have a lot to say, Mom, and just because you don’t always understand, does not mean that I am not going to continue to tell you what I think – Sofie Bear

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.

DogDaz Zoo: Do What’s Right – MLK

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

Wonderful Wednesday: Sunrays 2017

How do they know how to find that one spot where the sun rays shine through? This came up on my memory page from 2017. I just love that girl!

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!

DogDaz Zoo: Merry Christmas 2020

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 zooming this year.

We love Christmas morning. It is a special day. And we will let nothing stop it from being that way. We will still watch our loved ones open their stockings and wow at their gifts, even though it’s through a camera (so, we might send a gif).

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

(Clockwise from the top right)

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

Wonderful Wednesday: Gotcha Charlie #4

It is hard to believe that Charles rescued us 4 years ago. He has become such a central part of the pack. The top right picture is the day we brought him home and the bottom is Mr. Sexy now.  ❤

Happy Gotcha day, Charles. Little but mighty.
