The boys were accompanying me Wednesday afternoon and we just happened to be near their favorite ice cream parlor, Mr. Freeze, so I decided to stop. To make it easier for me, I talked the girl into putting the boys milk-bone sundae into a banana split container. However, when I presented the milk-bone sundae to the boys, Sir W lunged at it and got the entire thing in his mouth in one gulp. Denali, being respectful with his manners, was politely licking it like a normal doggie. I’m not sure if Sir Wilbur is familiar with a ‘brain freeze.’ OMG.. My head would be spinning. Well then, have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
Over the weekend, the boys and I visited Andy’s Army booth, with the Golden Retriever Foundation during the Toledo Humane Society Bark in the Park event. Andy’s Army booth is a cancer awareness in memory of a rescued golden. Since Denali is fighting cancer, I thought this would be a good booth to visit and show our support. Andy Army’s booth is new and will be traveling to other events in Northwest Ohio to promote public awareness of canine cancer and to raise money for canine cancer research. This was the first event I have taken Sir W to with a ton of other dogs and surprisingly, he was well behaved and so was D. Along with the boys receiving tons of treats and pets, I had them pose next to Andy’s sign. Have a great week everyone!
Since the boys new greeting card, The Dynamic Duo, is so popular, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the outtakes. It took roughly two weeks to get the photo I wanted and in between that there was a lot of sniffs and licks. Thankfully, they finally cooperated and I got the photo I wanted. This Dynamic Duo card is available at the retailers in Toledo, Ohio who sell his cards (The stores are listed on his website) and you can also purchase them on Denali’s website, http://www.denalithedog.com/cards.html. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
On May 12 of last year, Denali and I welcomed into our life Sir Wilbur. I can not believe it has been a year that he has been with us. I can honestly say that Sir W has been the best thing for D. He keeps Denali going and brings excitement into our lives. Around my family Sir Wilbur’s code name is ‘Trouble,’ and Denali’s is known as the ‘Saint.’ Since it’s a year later, I thought it would be fun to have the boys reenact their first ever photo. Wow!! Have a fabulous week everyone!!
Tuesday, the boys and I visited OSU Veterinary Medical Center for Denali’s monthly visit. Denali is doing well and continues to have airflow in his nose. In November of last year when Denali was diagnosed with cancer, I did not know what to do. Thankfully, a friend suggested I take him to OSU and that’s where I met oncologist, Dr. Cheryl London. She gave me hope, something I did not think I had. I am grateful to Dr London for all the help she has given Denali and so many dogs with cancer. After his visit, Dr London, left and recent graduate Jillian, who is assisting in the Clinical Trials, posed with Denali & Sir W. Have a great weekend everyone!!
Wednesday, it was a wonderful Spring Day in Ohio. Since it was soooo nice out I thought it would be fun to get the boys into the mood. I found an old fashion swim cap for D and trendy headpiece for Sir W. Don’t they look so happy?? Love them… Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!
Sunday, the boys and I were at the park with a friend. Soon after, it started to rain, so my friend took the boys to his truck so I could make a quick stop. When I returned, the first thing I heard was Sir W whining and then I spotted the two of them hanging out of the truck looking for me… Awwweee… Have a great week everyone!!
I take my boys with me often. Actually, Denali grew up driving along interstate 80 from Pennsylvania to Ohio for the first years of his life. Sir W has spent time in the Jeep, but not nearly as much as D…but he’s learning. One of their favorite places to visit are drive-thru’s. They have learned that if they are good and not jumping, barking, climbing, or licking my ears, they will receive a treat. Yesterday, I visited the drive-thru at the bank and the boys were so excited for their treat. Have a great weekend everyone!!
It’s truly amazing how close D and Sir W have grown over the last 11 months. At times they are barking at each other going crazy, then other times I find them snuggled next to each other in the oddest places. This is what I found the other day in my very petite mud room. It truly makes me smile whenever I see them like this. Love them. Have a great week everyone!
Sir W has lots of issues with things that have never bothered Denali, especially squirrels. I feed the squirrels peanuts on my porch and Sir W does not like that. As soon as a brave squirrel comes in sight, Wilbur goes crazy, he’s either jumping, pawing at the window, or barking like crazy. Yesterday morning, Sir W was somewhat calm for a few seconds when Mr Squirrel came in sight and I was able to take this photo of the two of them before he got crazy. Also, not to worry, Denali is fine, he was napping in the corner and out of my frame and could care less about Mr Squirrel. I thought this photo was cute and wanted to share.. Have a great weekend everyone!
