Wordless Wednesday: Garden Day

It is definitely spring and we are really enjoying being outdoors. We wish the kitties could come out into the garden with us too. Some dog (who will remain nameless) encouraged them to rip a hole in the expensive dog-nails proof screen and helped them to a moment on the deck. Mom was not happy especially since Nine’s adventure in the wild last year when he was gone for 2 days. Mini came through the hole, and being the sweet thing she is, walked up to V in the garage, wondering where all the fun was. That is how Mom found out about the new hole. This time, Nine stayed in the house. Maybe he remembered how scary the yard can be. Someone always seems to go wondering when Mom is not at her best. I guess the cats are just opportunists.

The days are getting longer and lighter. Even limpy Mom is coming out on the deck.

Have a wonderful Wednesday! – Louise, aka Lulu

Monday Mischief: Pink Snow

We love the pink snow when it falls. It looks like the white stuff put it isn’t cold. We don’t know if Charles ever saw pink snow before because he tried to eat it. Pink snow makes us happy. Do you have pink snow? This is our friend Amy’s yard (she’s a yellow lab). She has lots of trees that line her drive. We only have one cherry tree and it is little and get’s white flowers, not pink. Pink snow is slippery and Mommy worries that we are going to slip. Mommy always worries.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Monday Mischief: 100 Year Spring


Mom had her long-Janes (thermal underwear) on because it was 18 degrees F (-8 C) out, but Mother Nature has been fooling us with warm days and nights all winter. February was the warmest month ever in the Mid-Atlantic and the weather people say this is the earliest spring in over 100 years. The cherry blossoms are out, and they are predicting the National cherry blossoms (in Washington DC – 50 miles away) will peak around March 14 (usually they peak in April). That is just crazy!

Mom is trying to teach Charles how to sit with us for her famous Picture Moments. He does not listen to any commands and while we sit so beautifully and wait for her (applause and treats for Louise and me), he goes and goes and goes. Mom just keeps picking him up and putting him in between us until she can get a shot of all 3 of us together. Maybe by next Xmas he will get what he is supposed to do.

Forsythia, azalea, daffodils, crocus, cherry blossom, and hellebore. Even the maples are budding. Oh my! Official spring is still 3 weeks away.

DogDaz Zoo: Saint Brigid’s Day

Today we are celebrating Imbolc or Imbolg (pronounced i-MOLG), also called (Saint) Brigid’s Day. It is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of spring. Most commonly it is held on 1 February, or about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. Here at DogDaz Zoo we take any and every reason to have a party!

Noel Spring 14

Saint Brigid please bring the flowers and the birds soon.

Monday Mischief: Life is Ruff

Osprey Sand

Sand is so cool. Especially when you have a triple coat of fur like I do. The Osprey platform disintegrated in the water after all these years, so the Sea Eagles moved to the tree over the boat ramp. Mom Osprey does not like that we dogs were playing around her tree trunk. Dad Osprey swooped us, but our Mom was not fast enough with her camera to get a good picture. Life on the river is RUFF..



This is a blog hop. I hopped it from MYBrownNewfies. Check them out for more mischief.

Monday Mischief: Happy Plants & Smelly Dogs

Iris May 2016

Sometimes we think that Mom thinks we are just statues to sit in the garden with her flowers. It has been raining for 15 straight days now, so getting out, even for a little while, is worth it.  Mom had a good crop of iris this year.  There is only one peach colored iris amongst the bunch.  With so much rain everything is green and soggy.  That makes for happy plants, Mom says. And smelly dogs.
