Monday Mischief: Thunder Rolls and Bed Rolls

Mom came back from the beach and brought thunder and lightning. We don’t like that at all. Please save us! We are trying to hide in the corner with Mom.Thunder collage

Louise went into her kennel where she feels the safest. But I need Mom to sleep with me on the floor. Mom brought her pillow and blankie down to my bed.

Where are you going to sleep, Mom? I like your pillow much better than mine.

What mischief did you get into today?

Wordless Wednesday: Splish Splash

IMG_1065 Dog-gone it’s hot! These must be the DOGDAZ (dayz) of summer.

We have so much fun swimming with Mojo and Zelda in their dog pool.

Those Labradors love to swim.

Lulu will not get in the water, no matter how hot it is. Maybe it is because she is more of a Hound dog than a Lab. Who knows? She hates to get wet.

Sofie love love loves to get down and splashy. It takes 3 days for her Sheltie coat to dry but she doesn’t care. BarkOutLoud!

Have a great Wednesday!

Wordless Wednesday: Any Desk In A Storm

ww 6.15.18

 Louise has decided that the safest place to be when there is a storm is under Mom’s desk.  At first I could not find her because she is black and it is really dark under there.  Now I have an extra furry foot rest.

Have a great Wednesday!

Thankful Thursday: 4 YOU

Dear Blog Friends –

$40D62A59E927153D

DogDaz is coming up to our 2 year blogaversay in November and we are lucky to be blessed with a wonderful following of loyal readers and interactive commenters.

We absolutely positively want you to know, that it is Y – O – U that makes this blog what it is.

Today and everyday, we are Thankful for YOU!

————————————–

Mom is going to work far, far away from home for awhile, so the usual blog hops and weekly rants will be down to one amazing, interesting, funny, or silly picture per day.

Though we are going to miss her, we dogs get to go on a vacation to Sonja’s until Mom returns. The poor kitties have to stay home with boring V (bet they feel like losers – BOL.)

Thank you all so much for being our fans and please do keep coming around to check out the daily DogDaz Zoo post.  We will check into your blogs when we return.

Thank YOU – Thank YOU – Thank YOU

See you soon!

With love , licks and  laughter –

DogDaz 2013

Louise (Lulu Belle)  – Sofie Bear – Noel, the Christmas Cat – Nine – Stella – and Mom

Thankful Thursday: Loving Fall

Lulu Sofie Oct 13

As the winds from Hurricane Karen swing back into the Mid-Atlantic, we are saying good-bye to the unusually hot Fall, and hello to more seasonable October weather (cold and wet).  We have been very thankful for the added warmth that has allowed us to run around the river for a longer time and I am sure that the boating people were happy for extra days at sea.  But now, with the dark mornings and the shorter days, it seems only right that the leaves actually fall to the ground, and that the earth begin her closure toward the cold months.  I am a Fall person.  It has always been a time of introspection, of pulling in, of preparing for the long dark time, after harvest.  I love the colors, and the sound of the wind, and the cooler nights.  I can’t say that I like the darker days, but they do allow for warm fires in the fireplace and soup and hot tea.  Thank you, Great Spirit, for all the wonders of the universe that we are able to enjoy, every day.  And, thank you for Fall.

I’m also thankful that Louise is healing well and that Sofie is staying out of the rose bushes.

7.4.13 Thankful Thursday: America The Home of the Free

I am thankful for my freedom.  For the people (and animals) that help keep me safe.  For the ability to speak my mind and believe what I believe, even if it is different than what other American’s believe.  Today, the 4th of July, we celebrate our independence and freedom.

Dedicated on June 10, 2006, the United States War Dogs Memorial, located guarding the gateway to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, consists of a bronze statue of a kneeling Vietnam War soldier and his dog, set on a black granite base.  The memorial was designed by sculptor Bruce Lindsay, Architectural Division Manager at Johnson Atelier in Mercerville, New Jersey. A graduate of Bucknell University, Lindsay’s studio is adjacent to Grounds for Sculpture, the 22-acre sculpture park on the grounds of the former New Jersey State Fair.  The U.S. War Dogs Memorial, while directly representing the War Dog Teams of the Vietnam War, honors all our nation’s war dogs and their handlers – past, present and future.

I’m  also thankful that Sofie’s toe is feeling better.
