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 will never be forgotten.

Memorial Day ’14: Soldier Dogs – The 4-Legged Heros

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America.

 

I repost this story every year, because soldier dogs are truly amazing heros.

 

fastcompany:

These are some of my favorite images from the new book Soldier Dogs. There are more pictures in our slideshow today.

Military Working Dogs play a crucial part in America’s armed services. The best known “Soldier Dog,” Cairo, put crucial canine skills to work in the SEAL Team Six operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. Other Military Working Dogs serve as everything from bomb sniffers to troop companions to search and rescue dogs (and also serve in darker roles, such as duty at Guantanamo Bay). Their handlers and trainers, devoted dog lovers down to a man, form an unusually close-knit fraternity within the military.

Dog are not only our best friends, they are an incredible asset to our safety forces.  Thank you to all the handlers and animals that keep us safe around the world.  – DogDaz

Thankful Thursday: Thanksgiving Day

We at DogDaz have so much to be thankful for and today is the perfect Thursday to restart our Thankful Thursday blog hop because it is American Thanksgiving Day.

funny_turkey

1.  DogDaz is thankful for safe international travel and the ability to move around the planet, especially to get home to see her furries (and her humans).

2.  We are thankful for a wonderful pet sitter who knows how to take such good care of the doggies when Mommy is off on her work journeys  (Thank you Sonya and pack).  And to V and K8 for feeding the cats everyday at home, which Mommy usually does.

3.  We are thankful for all the wonderful and caring people in our life who feed us and love us and take us to the vet when we need it.

4.  We are thankful for our blog friends who come back post after post, even when Mommy is not able to read their blogs because she is in a world that blocks internet access, or she is under a rock somewhere trying to lift the weight of the world.

Wishing everyone a safe and festive holiday season.  And for those that celebrate Hanukkah – may your doughnuts be full of jelly and your candles be bright.

Thankful Thursday: Loving Fall

Lulu Sofie Oct 13

As the winds from Hurricane Karen swing back into the Mid-Atlantic, we are saying good-bye to the unusually hot Fall, and hello to more seasonable October weather (cold and wet).  We have been very thankful for the added warmth that has allowed us to run around the river for a longer time and I am sure that the boating people were happy for extra days at sea.  But now, with the dark mornings and the shorter days, it seems only right that the leaves actually fall to the ground, and that the earth begin her closure toward the cold months.  I am a Fall person.  It has always been a time of introspection, of pulling in, of preparing for the long dark time, after harvest.  I love the colors, and the sound of the wind, and the cooler nights.  I can’t say that I like the darker days, but they do allow for warm fires in the fireplace and soup and hot tea.  Thank you, Great Spirit, for all the wonders of the universe that we are able to enjoy, every day.  And, thank you for Fall.

I’m also thankful that Louise is healing well and that Sofie is staying out of the rose bushes.
