Wonderful Wednesday: Polite Paws

I think it is funny that Louise crosses her paws when she is laying down. There is actually a scientific term for that behavior called “polite paws.” Some behaviorists say that it is a way that animals (yes cats do it too) are trying to communicate with us. I think it is really just for comfort, like humans crossing their legs. Lulu definitely looks relaxed when she does it. She is a very polite dog, that is fur sure.

Do you have polite paws?

DogDaz Zoo: Lulu is 12

Louise, aka Lulu Bell, aka BooBoo head, is one of the sweetest dogs once she knows you. From the day this shy, fearful, mange-covered, pup with a collar embedded in her neck, came to the Zoo, she has taught us much about patience and quiet strength.

Happy 12th birthday my sweet girl!!!!

Black and White Sunday: Fall is Approaching

The best vantage point to watch the world from is the front door.

At least that is what the trio thinks.

Black and White Sunday: Here Comes The Sun

I could have taken this picture of Louise on the deck just today and it would be the same as in April 2016. Why black dogs love the sun, I do not know. But both Lulu and Charles love to lie on the deck in the sunlight.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

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!

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.

Black and White Sunday: With Abandon

Though this picture was taken only 4 years ago, when she was 7, this picture makes Lulu look like a puppy, sleeping with abandon – not a care in the world. Happy Black and White Sunday!

DogDaz Zoo: Lulu is 11

My wonderful Louise, aka Lulu Belle, turns 11 today. She is just such a wonderful soul. I really enjoy her company. She is patient with the cats and tolerates Sofie and Charles very well. She loves to have Mom all to herself on morning walks and it seems like the only time that I really see her smile. Except for this picture above. She had the biggest smile that day. Usually, she is more like the picture below.

“Why are you making me sit here in front of the roses, Mom? Grump, grump, grump. Let’s just keep walking.”(Don’t my wild roses look great for late fall? They really had a second burst.) I just love this dog.

Happy 11th Birthday, Louise!!! You are the best!
