Black and White Sunday: Fall Sun

This is a shot from 2018. Nothing has changed except we are all 2 years older.

Charles loves to lie on the deck in the warm fall sun. I think he would stay there all day if I let him.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: Happy 13th Noel

Noel, the Christmas-cat, will be 13 years young on Tuesday. If you search ‘Noel’ on the sidebar, you will probably find more posts at the DogDaz Zoo on her then any of the other animals. Maybe because she is the oldest of the current pack, or maybe because she is so photogenic. I can’t believe that this little white terribly ill rescued kitten grew into this amazing white rabbit-fur purr machine. Noel has the Feline Herpes (FVR) virus, which almost left her blind. I had to carry her for a month close to my chest to keep her breathing and now look at her: Queen of the Zoo.

Happy Birthday, Queen Noel!

Black and White Sunday: Daylight

I thought this was a perfect black and white of Louise from 2016 for Daylight Savings Day. A shiny black dog lying in the spring sun.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Black and White Sunday: Still The Same, Sort Of

A look back at 2017. Nothing much has changed over the last 3 years. Well, maybe they are all a little fatter and more demanding. But then again, so am I.

Happy Black and White Sunday!

Black and White Sunday: And the Stockings Were Hung…

The animal stocking are always hung so that they can’t get to the contents, or so we hope. I think that Mini, Sofie, and Louise have other plans.

Did you get something new for the holiday? The dogs got some cool new chew bones and the cats got these neat catnip mice in weird wire balls.

DogDaz: Let The Sky Fall

Mom said that many humans think that today marks the end of the world. Actually, she wishes that today would mark the end of the violent world as we know it and the beginning of a new peaceful one with no more killing of innocents or war or any hate stuff. But alas, we have been told that our Mom is a big dreamer.

lu 1st snowFor us, today is the first day of winter, and hopefully, that means that white stuff will start falling from the sky soon. We love white stuff.  It is fun to eat and romp in. We really do hope the sky falls soon. 

Mom’s family came from Northern Europe and there they celebrated a festival at midwinter called Yule. We like festivals. From today on in the Northern Hemisphere, the days will start to get lighter and that is really welcome. 

From A to Z, it seems like most cultures needed festivals at this time of year to help them survive the winter. Mom started to tell us all their names and became overwhelmed: Beiwi, Brumalia, Chawmas, Christmas (we know that one), Maidyarem, Dongzhi, Goru, Hanukkah (we know that one too), Hogmanay, Inti Raymi, Junkanoo, Karachum, Koleda, Wren Day, Lenaia, Lohri, St Lucy’s Day…..    So we decided we are going to celebrate every day because somewhere, someone is, so we will too! 

Happy Solstice everyone and may the sky fall on your head and you catch it on your tongue and taste its sweetness – SNOW BALL FIGHT!!!!!

Throw the snow ball at someone and let us know who in the comments so we can throw one at them too!

Black and White Sunday: 2015

I am having fun looking back. This is 2015. Phone cameras have come a long way since then, or maybe I have just gotten better at taking pictures (this is really grainy, sorry). Have a great Black and White Sunday.
