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.

DogDaz Zoo: Happy Holidays

We wish all our wonderful blog family an awesome holiday season and a wonderful 2023 New Year celebration.

Thank you for following and commenting and just being our blog friends. We appreciate you and hope to ‘see’ you all in the New Year.

DogDaz Zoo: Charlie Update

Charles here – I am interrupting the Caturday post to bring you an update on my bladder surgery:

Everything is going great. The first day was hard and no one told Mommy to have ramps and things for me to get up onto the bed and couch and boy, did coming up the stairs hurt, But you know me, Mr. Biter, I would not let anyone carry me, even though the stairs were really tough.

I was not very impressed with the ramp Mom made from pillows, but Joile thought it was a hoot!

I am making Mom crazy with going out a great deal, but maybe it is because I am just getting used to not having that big bladder stone anymore. The Doctor called and said that it was a CALCIUM  OXILATE stone. That is what we thought and there is not much we can do but stay on the special urinary diet we are on and hope no new ones grow.

Mom says I am licking myself too much and she is going to the store to get a baby onesy. That sounds awful.

DogDaz Zoo: Doing Ok

Charles here: I just wanted to let you know that I am Ok and did very well with my surgery. The Doctor said I am a real trooper.

It is going to be hard for a few days until all the stitches heal but I should be as good as new, for an old guy. They aren’t going to get rid of me so fast. At 14-1/2 years old and 14 pounds, I plan to be around for several more sun rises.

The Dr said that the stone was so big and green and odd, that they are sending it to a lab to make sure it wasn’t some alien from outer space. Then maybe we can know what we can do to avoid more in the future.

I am having trouble with the stairs and don’t want anyone to touch me, so I am trying to bite people to leave me alone. It’s not that I don’t love them. Mom made me a ramp to get up on the bed cause I can’t even do my dog stairs. But hopefully I’ll be OK soon.

DogDaz Zoo: Prayers for Charles

Mr. Charles is having his cystotomy today. The date was moved up because he is starting to have issues. A cystotomy is a surgical opening created in the wall of the urinary bladder. This procedure allows the surgeon to look inside the bladder and remove the giant stone that he has. Beat your drums for a quick and pain-free recovery. We will keep you posted.

DogDaz Zoo: We Will Never Forget

me 9/11 north tower

We shall never forget! Here is Mommy at the 9/11 North Tower Memorial pre-opening in 2012. Mommy grow up in NY so the devastation hit hard for her home state, but we live outside of Washington, DC now, so when the planes crashed at the Pentagon, the devastation directly affected our friends and family as well. May we never have to experience this terror again. – DogDaz Zoo

DogDaz Zoo: Charles Turns 14

2022 has been a rocky year for Charles so far but it is only going to go up from here (or so Mom says).

14 years young in little dog years hopefully has a lot of runway left for adventures and treats.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. HANDSOME!

DogDaz Zoo: Louise Is Now An Angel

There are almost no words to express the deep pain that we feel after the loss of Louise last Friday, June 17.

She was such an excellent soul. Quiet and gentle; the cats all wanted to be her friend; the dogs all looked up to her. She never complained even at the end when I knew how much her back must hurt with a compressed or ruptured disk that made it almost impossible for her to walk. Stoic to the end – she did not like me helping her to get around and especially not to go to the bathroom. What is weird is that, since the oral cancer diagnosis last December, we thought that was what would take her from us. But, I guess, the powers that be had other ideas.

We want to believe that she is running free in that big meadow in the sky over the rainbow bridge with Sofie and Nine, and her big brother Squash, who left when she was only a puppy. Now I hope she is with her best friends Mojo and Amy, who she missed every day since they too left this earthly plane, and whom she never stop sniffing for.

Go softly, my sweet Louise. Your memory will always be a blessing to us. Thank you for letting us be your family for 12-1/2 years.

DogDaz Zoo: Bang Your Drums for Lulu

Louise’s health has taken a turn for the worse. Actually, it is not the oral cancer but other issues. Last week her anal glands got infected and on Saturday her back went out again. We believe that her disks are compressed and she is not responding to medication the way she did in April. Dignity and honor are our codes here at the zoo. We never want them to be in pain or to be so debilitated that they cannot function.

I don’t think I can post for a while until her health stabilizes if it does. And we are also dealing with Charles’s enlarged heart, kidney stones, and bladder stone situation. Bang your drums, say your prayers, and keep them in your thoughts. This has just been a horrible few months. We are not over losing Nine and Sofie in March.
