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!
One second every day (well sometimes 2 seconds) in the life of the Dogdaz Zoo. From summer to winter in the bat of an eye. November was a very active month for humans, but not so much for the zoo: we just hung out in the leaves mostly.
Can you spot Thanksgiving dessert? (Hint: Gluten-free dairy-free apple crisp with Cashew Vanilla Ice Cream) Did you know that Mom also has a food blog called LoriansKitchen? If you are hungry, stop by.
Sofie Bear, my very complex bundle of anxiety, I love you to the ends of the earth and back. 10 years around the sun is a wonderful number of turns. You are a special girl and have taught me much. Keep finding that sunspot.
Sofie: Another beautiful afternoon sitting in the leaves. Big tree sure does drop a lot of them. Charles: Hey, Sofie. I smell some change in the air. Louise: Change? I don’t like change. I think I will hide here in this pile of leaves until it passes. Maybe I will come out on January 21st.
Sofie had her second worming last week for those very difficult hookworms. So far, so good for Ms. Soso. Her gut seems to be getting back to normal. Now we have to figure out what new arthritis medicine to get on, since her previous one, which we stopped because her gut was ripped apart by these hookworms, is really hard on the GI tract (Previcox). She limps a great deal. I don’t know if it is her front right shoulder or coming from her neck. I do have her on pain meds so hopefully that helps. I am also trying this new thing that Mojo’s Mom gave us that provides sound waves into the area and maybe gives some relief. Testing the gut this week and waiting for the Vet to tell us what they find. Paws crossed they are gone.
