Love is a funny thing: you can’t see it, you just feel it.
I love Louise and I am sure that Louise loves me. I know by the way she wakes me up in the morning and how she reacts when I come home from somewhere. It’s the way she looks at me with those brown eyes. It is how she relaxes when I am near. But is it love really or is it just that I am the caregiver and the food source? Personally, I want to believe it is love. Many scientists say it is just an attachment or bond to the owner. But I say if it is not love, then what thing is it?
In 2010, Louise was about 13 months in this picture, she helped us with our first little holiday tree. Once the kids were bigger, they didn’t care as much about decorating the tree (which used to be a very big deal, so much so, that we had to have 2 big trees so that everyone could have every decoration on them), which freed us to start getting ‘Charlie Brown’ trees – little and cute.
Holiday time is a happy time here at DogDaz Zoo. Make sure to keep your furbabies safe and tether your tree to something so that climbing cats and zooming dogs won’t bring it down to the ground. We have a permanent eyehook near where the tree goes every year. In the non-holiday season, it has a cat sculpture over it. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday!
