DogDaz Zoo: Thank You To Our Veterans

On this, our American Veterans day, I wanted to honor the Military Working Dogs, and of course all the active service people and veterans that have protected me and my family and my nation for many years. Especially remembering my Dad who served honorably in the Army during WWII, and took a bullet so that I could be free to be me; my Uncles, my Mother’s 4 brothers, all who fought and came home to their single/widowed mom; and my brother-in-law, who saw the worst of Vietnam, and still remains a wonderful gentle man.

Thank you very much. You are my heroes.

Wordy Wednesday: Día de los Muertos




We love celebrating the Mexican holiday “Día de los Muertos,” the “Day of the Dead.” Mom made us all wear these cool skull scarves. I think it has something to do with celebrating our ancestors. Mom says that all the animals that came before us have just run ahead and are waiting for us to catch up. On a foggy day, if you look real hard, you might be able to see them looking back or smell their scent on the wind. How do you celebrate your ancestors?

Wordy Wednesday: Lulu Turns 9

Where does the time go? My Halloween baby turns 9 years young today. It is hard to believe that this little shy puppy that was so neglected, turned into this amazing dog. Louise has a special way about her. She is stoic and it is hard to know if she is hurting or in distress. She is very gentle with her cats and is kind to her pesty pack mates. She rarely gets angry with Sofie, though there are many times that she could. In the last few months, she has become very ‘Mommy, Mommy,’ as I call it. She does not leave my side. I am not sure if that is about me, or about her. The world outside is still a difficult place for her, and she will always have that ‘fearful’ dog anxiety, but together we have learned to enjoy safe places and scary people and animals. I thoroughly enjoy her company and have been blessed with her presence.

Happy birthday, Miss Louise. You have melted my heart.

Monday Mischief: Alas, Poor Yorick, He Was Allergic

No animals were hurt in the making of this Halloween murder scene.

We have so much fun at Halloween. Maybe because it is just a fun time, no need to cook and bake and worry about family or presents or going to visit people. Here at the zoo, we love the fall and everything that comes with it. Though it is the dying off of the crops and the going to sleep of the plants and the earth, it is a magic time for us. We really enjoy being wrapped in layers and having a crackling fire to warm our bones. Though the cold has started to affect us all, because we are not puppies anymore, it still holds a freshness that makes us feel alive.

Harvest time makes me feel thankful for having food on my table and being able to provide for my family; flesh and fur and fins.  Have you heard about the Teal Pumpkin Project? It helps raise awareness for people who have food allergies (like me) so that everyone can partake in Halloween. Have you ever thought about the child with peanut or milk allergies who can’t participate? Please think about having toys or alternative treats. If you want more information about the Teal Pumpkin Project go to FARE – Food Allergy Research & Education. We give out eyeballs and spiders and other fun things in a separate bucket from regular candy. I give the goblins a choice when they come to the door.

We are ready for mischief – Are you?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: Boo!!

The trio looking soulfully at the skeletons on the railing. Is this what happens to bad dogs and cats? Is this what happens if Mommy doesn’t feed us for a few days? I am not sure I like these zoomies on my doorstep. What spooky decorations are you doing this year?

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Wordy Wednesday: Looking Out & Looking In

Looking Out: The only time I am able to get a decent picture of the trio seems to be when they are at a door. Here they are helping me prepare for the upcoming holiday. They are watching me put out the dog and cat skeletons and all the DogDaz tombstones as we turn the yard into a Halloween graveyard.

Looking In: The back door is another opportunity to get the 3 together in a shot. They want to come inside after playing in the yard. I love the intense looks on Louise and Sofie’s faces. They seem to be staring right at me to say, “Please, Mommy, let us in and give us treats.” I never know what Charles is looking at (Bark Out Loud).

How do you capture the best shots of your furballs?
