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.

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.

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!

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!

Black and White Sunday: Giving

If you have much, give of your wealth;

If you have little, give of your heart.

DogDaz Zoo: Christmas Star for Solstice

12.21.14 xmas
On the shortest day of the year, may you find light in the joy of the season!

Did you know that the ‘Christmas Star,’ the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, will be visible tonight (Dec 21). It has been 800 years since this happened. Maybe tonight will bring a miracle full of peace, health, and healing to the world. I can dream, right!

Black and White Sunday: Goodbye, Snowey

I loved this holiday decoration (picture from 2016). This year when I went to set it up, I found that a mouse had eaten a hole in the snowman (I keep this stuff in the garage). I went to find a replacement on the internet but they wanted a ton of $$ for it. I bought it originally at a discount store for a good price since I try to not spending too much on the decorations. I am sad. It was a fun one. But we do get to enjoy it in pictures. So this year I got to buy something new :-). Do you have decorations you love year after year?

Happy Holidays!
