Monday Mischief: Light Up The Night

DogDaz Zoo loves to decorate at holiday time. I notice that we don’t have any holiday cats. Have you ever seen any outside cat decorations? Maybe I can find some for next year. This year the Bear family is new. My old bear fell apart and I had been looking for a new one for several years. I am so happy that I found one that I could afford (and got a baby too). The little family looks great in the fairy garden.

This is such a magical time of year.

What kind of mischief did you get into today? Give us a link to your decorations.

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.

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.

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.

Monday Mischief: Chuck’s Special Treat

Charles here. I want to tell you about my day. Once a week, Louise and Sofie go for a play date with Sonya and her pack for a few hours. That leaves me home with Mom and the silly cats. I get sad when my sisters leave but Mom always gives me something special to chew on while they are gone. I am a really good chewer and make quick work of every chew treat she gives me. Then I pine until the girls return. What is your favorite chew treat?

Monday Mischief: Goblins & Ghouls

Keeping 3 dogs quiet when people keep coming up to the front door of the house is a major feat. (Keeping Sofie quite, ever, is a big job.) I put the ‘baby’ gate at the top of the stairs to keep them away from the door, but they still can look over the ledge and watch the action. Charles actually came through the bars (like the cats do) on the side. I guess I will have to block that section too next year. You can see Sofie hiding behind the fountain watching me. I am sure it doesn’t help that the skeleton dog and cat are outside the front windows. Looking out the side windows which have prism glass, I would bark too.

Monday Mischief: The Lil’ Devil

Charles, the Mugwump, here. I need to talk to you about the trouble I am having with my humans. Being so adorable, as I am, and only 15 lbs., everyone wants to dress me up. Case in point, this little devil costume that Peanut bought me for Halloween. Now, I am not complaining (too much) because I get tons of attention that the other dogs don’t (because I look so darn cute)…. but REALLY… the Devil?

Shouldn’t she have made me “Conan the Barbarian” or some other superhero? Mom says she had to talk Peanut out of turning me into ‘sushi’ for Halloween. Oh well. I guess the Devil isn’t that bad after all.
