Mom says that we are in for a week of ‘boom boom boom’ storms. Louise and I don’t like boomers (Charles doesn’t seem to care much about them). They are loud and painful and they hurt my ears.
The DogDaz Zoo is that little blue dot in the middle of all those red storm blobs.
I’m wearing my thunder shirt but it doesn’t really help anymore. It used to help me years ago, but now it is just this too tight thing that Mom makes me wear. I am still scared. Maybe these shoes will protect me?
Mom put a shirt on Louise because she is also scared of storms (V thinks she caught the fear from me). Louise doesn’t have one of these fancy thunder shirts like I have so Mom found an old shirt in Peanut’s giveaway pile that seems to work really well. I am not sure if it helps her any more than my thunder shirt helps me, but….
She sure does look ‘super mega foxy awesome and hot!’
Queen Noel, the Christmas Cat, here, posting on the current situation at DogDaz Zoo: The humans are in the house all day, every day, and taking up a great deal of our space and oxygen. Mini has decided that Mom’s chair is now her chair, but I want it! So I think I will just sit on her until she moves. Which she doesn’t. I think I may need to use force.
Mini and I have temporarily worked out our differences by having a tiff and then moving to the platforms of the cat village. There is currently a detent between us, at least until I want something she has (or vice versa).
All this quarantining is exhausting. I think I will move to the kitchen table and take a nap on the newpaper.
This is just a normal day at the DogDaz Zoo: 3 dogs out for a walk and the 3 cats waiting for their return.
Yes, that really is our doormat, long before COVID-19.
I did not realize that Charles’ lead got caught in the garden timbers and he could not get up the stairs. You can see it at the very beginning of the video. I had to go and release him to shoot the second half of the video. He is such a silly little man!’
What kind of mischief did you get into today?
Stay well and remember we will get through this #separatelytogether
Mom has decided that since she must stay 6 feet away from all other humans that a dog leash is a perfect 6-foot tool to ensure the perfect distance is achieved. We learned a new term last week called ‘social distancing.’ The perfect way to practice social distancing is to have at least 2 dogs, but 3 or even 4 may be better, all on 6-foot leads, spread out around the human at the center.
On a serious note, please take this terrible earth-shattering COVID-19 situation seriously my friends. Only you can protect you and your loved ones. We have a great deal to learn about this virus, transmission, illness, and recovery. This is not a drill! Wash your paws for at least 20 seconds (I sing the ABC alphabet song), limit human contact (which means 4X as many pet cuddles on a normal day), and be smarter about what you put in your mouth (tell Sofie that, please).
Mom is keeping us very close today because she needs to be in a good vibe bubble: it is her birthday and the world is making her feel older than dirt.
