Monday Mischief: Gefilte Fish, Anyone?

Mom likes when the Christmas and Hanukkah holiday days aren’t overlapping because she gets to buy us more toys. This year she could not resist getting us some very fun stuffies. She said we have to wait until tomorrow night (the first night of the holiday) before we can destroy them. Can you guess who gets which stuffy? We are still working on toys from holidays past, but Mom doesn’t care, she buys us new stuff anyway. Some people would say that she spoils us, but we think we are just the luckiest rescue zoo in the universe. We can smell the latke’s cooking!

Sofie wants to play dreidel (a fun Hanukkah holiday game with a special top) and stole the gelt (chocolate money – dark vegan chocolate in our house), but Mom said that is not for doggies. This picture was truly not a setup, Sofie loves to steal little things.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Puppy Lulu & the Tree

In 2010, Louise was about 13 months in this picture, she helped us with our first little holiday tree. Once the kids were bigger, they didn’t care as much about decorating the tree (which used to be a very big deal, so much so, that we had to have 2 big trees so that everyone could have every decoration on them), which freed us to start getting ‘Charlie Brown’ trees – little and cute.

Holiday time is a happy time here at DogDaz Zoo. Make sure to keep your furbabies safe and tether your tree to something so that climbing cats and zooming dogs won’t bring it down to the ground. We have a permanent eyehook near where the tree goes every year. In the non-holiday season, it has a cat sculpture over it. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday!

Monday Mischief: Selfie Fail

The weather has finally turned ‘normal’ for December in the Mid-Atlantic. It was nice to take a brisk walk down to the river. Getting these three to pose is just impossible. Charles won’t sit on command, Sofie wants to lie down wherever she is, but, at least Louise listens to me (sometimes).

I will master the group photo sooner or later. I tried a selfie of me with the three dogs but that didn’t work. I think I need another human to get a family shot.

Do you have a good method for family fur fotos? I really need help here. Share in the comments. Thanks.

Black and White Sunday: Sunning Sofie

Winter Sofie 2014

I love how she loves to find a sun spot in the grass.

Dogs and cats are such hedonists. I wish life could be so simple.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Wordless Wednesday: Simply Irresistible

Simply Irresistible

Robert Palmer

How can it be permissible
She compromise my principle, yeah yeah
That kind of love is mythical
She’s anything but typical

She’s a craze you’d endorse, she’s a powerful force
You’re obliged to conform when there’s no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her him
Simply irresistible, Simply irresistible

Her His loving is so powerful, huh
It’s simply unavoidable
The trend is irreversible
The woman is invincible

She’s a natural law, and she leaves me in awe

She deserves the applause, I surrender because

Sheused to look good to me, but now I find her him
Simply irresistible, Simply irresistible

Monday Mischief: A Hair Raising Bed Story

Dogs with long, fine hair tend to shed less than other breeds. Some breeds shed very little hair. Strictly “non-shedding breeds” do not exist. However, most breeds with single coats are considered “non-shedding” because their shedding is not very noticeable.” – The Science of Fur

The person who wrote that article never met Louise.

Every day when I make my bed, I throw a flannel sheet over it immediately or I will be sleeping in fur.

I carefully tuck the sheet over my pillows and make sure every inch is covered before I go to make breakfast.

But, Louise wants my pillows. No matter how tight under the covers I put them, she digs them out and makes a nest.

It’s no fair! I used to give her a special pillow but she wants all of them. But worse….

The hair, the hair is everywhere!!

 Louise is single coated and short hair. Sheis supposed to be the least of my shedders.

With the addition of Charles’ long black hair, I just can’t win.

Thankfully, Sofie doesn’t shed much (even though she has the longest finest hair). Or maybe I just don’t see it because she is blond.

Any ideas how to keep a bed fur free? I know, ban the dogs from sleeping on it!  Hahahahaha – good luck with that at DogDaz Zoo.
