Denali and I want to wish a Happy Pumpkin Day to all. Speaking of pumpkins, Denali, my fabulous son/doggie, is modeling his costume…better known as THE GREAT PUMPKIN. On a side note, I want to thank my friends’ two little ladies for loaning me their costume. Have fun tonight everyone and watch out for the children!
The few times ’someone’ (I think everyone knows who) is left alone, this special ’someone’ patiently waits at the front window for me. For example, this is where D stands when I leave for an afternoon run and this is where he is when I return from my run. I truly appreciate D being very thoughtful waiting for me at the window, but it’s so not necessary. I have given it much thought and I would love to take Denali on a run, but knowing him, we’d stop every 2 minutes to sniff or he might run after a squirrel or even better, he would leave a deposit that I would have to pick up and run with. So instead, Denali stays on duty at my front window looking for me. I just love him!!
A few times a week Denali and I visit Norm. Well, I prefer to call him Normie. He’s an older rescue basset hound who misses his father during the day, so we stop over and spend a little time with him. Normie and D get along pretty well, and it’s rather amusing to me that whenever Norm decides to let out his famous howl, Denali always feels it’s his duty to chip in and start barking. Yesterday afternoon in the midst of all the rain, I was sitting on one end of Normie’s father’s really long couch eating my lunch and I looked over and noticed the two boys relaxing. So CUTE!! Have a great weekend everyone!
One of Denali’s favorite spots to hang out at my parents home is the top of their steps. He can lay there for hours monitoring their every move and he has absolutely no problem with my parents taking large steps and leaps over him repeatedly during the day. However, if someone walks up to the front door, including the mailman, D charges down the steps with a fearless bark to greet them and normally you’ll find my mum running after him yelling “DENALI!”. Have a great week everyone!
It’s very unusual to wash Denali outside in October but with the weather being really nice out, I completed that task with the help of my mum…(Note: I owe her 2 Starbuck’s pumpkin spice steamers). When my mother pulled up to my house, Denali ran up to her with excitement, not having the slightest clue that he’d be very upset with her and I in about 5 minutes. After I attached Denali to his leash and started to drag the garden hose into my backyard, his excitement about my mum’s visit slowly started to disappear. So in the midst of washing Denali, with my mum hold onto D’s leash, and having her scream at me, “He keeps on shaking!”, I took a picture to share with everyone. Have great weekend everyone!
Sunday morning I was sitting on the couch with my espresso watching CBS Sunday Morning eating my blueberry eggo waffle. Apparently my waffle must have smelled extremely good to Denali because he would not leave me alone. He kept on trying to get closer to my plate, then he welcomed himself on to my lap. After having my breakfast interrupted and losing my favorite spot on the couch, I went into my kitchen and made him one. I’m not sure how this is helping my situation of Denali begging, but at least we both had a healthy breakfast. Have a great week everyone!
Denali and I were outside chatting at the window of my neighbor, who is better known as Remi’s mum. Before we both realized it, Remi, the extremely LARGE puppy great dane pushed aside his mum and Denali did the same to me so they could chat..or you could describe it as barking and growling at each other?? It’s truly amazing how a simple conversation with a friend can be so rudely interrupted by two very impatient dogs, who find sniffing and barking more important than their masters having a moment to chat with each other.. Geez dogs… you just have to love ‘em! Have a great weekend everyone!
I have wanted to take this photo for a long time and now since the Detroit Tigers have had a great season and made the playoffs, I thought it was about time. Saturday, Denali joined me in Detroit for a photo assignment. As soon as I completed the job, we headed to the home of the Detroit Tigers, Comerica park. I’m assuming not many people have taken photos of their dog at the entrance of the park. I say this because along with numerous people honking their horns at us, and one person yelling, “My dog would never sit that still,” Tigers security came out and observed us laughing as they spoke on their walkie talkies to each other. Good luck tonight and GO TIGERS!! Denali is their #1 fan!
