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.

Black and White Sunday: Always Watching

Life on the other side of the glass clearly is very interesting. The life of a cat at this Zoo is one of always watching: watching birds; watching squirrels; watching bugs. And of course, of me, watching them, watching.

Caturday: Stella

Sofie and I were in visiting Stella and I was able to catch a few shots. Usually, she is moving around and really hard to photograph. Such a pretty baby, my Cali-torte. It amazes me how happy she is with her solitary life. She does like the occasional visit from Sofie or Louise. She doesn’t like Charles at all, and of course, hates all the other cats. She also is not a cat you see smile much but she does purr. I love you, Stella the Serious.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

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!

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?

Black and White Sunday: Polite Paws

Louise is one of those dogs that likes to cross her legs. I don’t think that I have ever seen Sofie or Charles with crossed legs. I think it is a long legged animal thing. There is actually a scientific name for it (of course there is – Bark Out Loud), it is called ‘polite paws.’ Really, look it up.

Caturday: Back To The Grind

I don’t like that Mom had to go back to work this week! She is not paying any attention to me, so I am going to sit right in the middle of everything she is doing and be a pest. I am good at being a pest. What do you mean you don’t want me hitting your screens with my paws/claws? I think I will go over to the printer and start chewing on the ends of her papers. That always adds a nice touch to her notes.

Monday Mischief: DogDaz Year In Review

Another month has come and gone by quickly here at the DogDaz zoo. December is always a fun month because there are lots of celebrations, lights, and boxes. Everyone gets extra brushings, cats get extra wrapping paper, and dogs get extra cookies. But, then in a flash, it is gone. The first video below is our December review in 1-second clips every day.

When we look back we can see that the year 2020 was full of fun, fur, flowers, and catfights (at least from the Zoo’s perspective). Below is the DogDaz Year (Jan – Dec) in review video. Did you know that 12 months of 1 second a day clips come out to be about 8 minutes?

The animals did not mind that Mom had to wear a mask and they loved that she started to work from home full-time again. We are looking forward to a 2021 full of snow, sun, long walks, cardboard boxes, and lots of treats.

Happy New Year!

Caturday: Smug New Year

Nine has been a real bully lately. Maybe he didn’t like what SantaPaws brought him for Christmas. He just does not want to share the tree and is really terrorizing everyone. He keeps trapping poor Noel in the corner when she is using the litter pan which I think is really unfair; is there nowhere safe, Nine? He has absolutely no respect for his elders (she is 13 and he is 9). Noel has a big scatch on her nose today 😦

Mini Cooper is just not OK with this behavior and tends to give it back to him but he wins most of the time. I wish this wouldn’t go on at 4 am when I am trying to sleep.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

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!
