Denali has lots of friends in the neighborhood. Every so often, I’ll get a knock on the front door and one of the neighbor kids wants to know if “Denali can come out and play.” Denali always has fun with the kids. From joining them in their kiddie pool to chasing each other, it’s always one adventure after the other. After they were outside for a bit I offered the little boy a popsicle. As I handed it to him, he asked for another one. When I asked who it was for, he said, “Its for Denali, he needs a treat too.”
Denali grew up with me in the beautiful hills of Pennsylvania. On weekends I would pack the Jeep, grab some food (including doggie treats) and off we’d go. While hiking, Denali would always find a swimming hole to relax in. We do not have swimming holes where we live now but we do have the Maumee River. Lately, it has been extremely hot out and I’m sure Denali has not been to happy about cooling off in my neighbors vinyl 8 gallon kiddy pool. So, over the weekend we went to the river. Denali and I had a blast and it brought back a lot of good old memories. Have a good day everyone and stay cool!
Denali is well loved by my parents and I. You can usually find my father walking Denali in the neighborhood or when Denali is spending time with my mother, he likes to play ‘doorbell’ and alert her of everyone walking past the front door. My father calls him, ‘buddy,’ and my mother calls him ‘pretty boy.’ My mother rang me in the afternoon and said she wanted some company from her ‘pretty boy.’ A few minutes later his ride appeared outside. I took off after him with my camera a took a few photos as he stuck his head out the window.. He’s such a pretty boy!!
Denali & I want to wish everyone a SAFE and HAPPY 4th of July. Also, don’t forget to bring proper ear protection for your dogs when watching the fireworks. Denali just loves his!! :-)
