Dougie Dog and Little Zoey ~ they live virtually,
romping, playing, having fun
in the land of Zoolatry.

Sometimes friends will visit, their pictures all can see,
and read the stories, 
of their glories,
they share with you and me.

Dougie Dog and Little Zoey ~ they live virtually,
Doing silly-funny things in the land of Zoolatry. 

Together they can travel, to places far and wide,
to visit friends at other blogs, the ZH by their side.

For 10 years we've been sharing, 
we hope it's not been a bore!
So many friends have filled our lives
with laughter, love and more!

In this land of ours called Zoolatry,
each day seems fresh and new.
In this land of ours each and every
day is better thanks to

You know how I love to run and play in my new backyard.  Not a problem when it's dry.  But when it has rained ... well ... I get muddy paws!  And sometimes, when I first go out to run-and-check the perimeter, I'll find a bunny or two in the back brush and wow, let the chase begin!  No way can I catch two of those critters.  The first usually escapes under one of the gates if he's not too chubby.  The other then hides under the shed.  So I'll round-a-bout the shed for awhile, doing my best digging work with nose-and-paws to scare him out of there.  Do I succeed?  Well, no.  Never.  Not yet.  But I do succeed in getting "muddy paws" and often even a "muddy nose".  So, out comes the Paw Plunger!

The humans here LOVE the Paw Plunger.  Me?  Well, it's OK.  I don't really mind it much.  I'm a pretty good dog when it comes to stuff like this.  Here ... I'll show you how it works.  Cause the other day I came up to the deck after a good runabout and I had really muddy paws full of twigs and grass clippings and yuk ... and even my nose was all brown! 

All done!  See the wet paw prints.  Soon as I dry off in a bit of sunshine I get to go inside for a treat and some nap time.  I haven't yet figured out what's so awful about muddy paws.  They don't bother me at all so I don't know why they bother my humans do much.  Do they bother your humans?

CATURDAY ART ~ Needlepoint Cats

All I can say about today's Caturday Art is 
(1) it really was fun to do ~ trying to create what I saw in my mind's eye, and
(2) there were so many layers done to get to the finished image, I lost count!

For more Caturday Art, sponsored each week by
Athena and Marie,

THANKFUL THURSDAY ~ Finding What You Thought Was Lost

Is that a new ball?  
No, that's my old ball.
I thought it was lost!
But now it's found.
Thankful to have found my old ball.
Sometimes when you find an old thing you thought you'd lost it almost feels like a new thing!

I'm thankful today.

And today is Thankful Thursday sponsored by Brian.
Thank you, Brian.
