Dogs and Santa

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 8:56 am

I have dressed Denali many times as Santa, but D has never had the opportunity to meet him. Over the weekend, The Ohio Great Dane Rescue organization was having a “photo’s with Santa” fundraiser event. I thought this would be a great opportunity for them to meet, so I brought a friend to help me with D because sometimes he gets a wee bit excited and is hard to control. Well, as soon as Denali saw Santa, he nearly ran over to him dragging my friend behind him as he was trying to hold onto the leash. Denali then rudely barked at Santa for about 5 minutes as we all tried to calm him down and tell him that the man in the big red suit is actually a cool dude. Santa then saved the day when he offered Denali some treats and D agreed to pose next to Santa long enough for me to take a photo. Have a great week everyone!!!

Thanksgiving for Dogs

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:37 pm

Even though Denali and I are vegetarians, we still want to wish everyone a Happy and safe Turkey Day. To help get D into the festive holiday spirit, I talked my fabulous neighbor, aka Bentley and Remi’s mum, along with her kids, into making a turkey hat for Denali to model. They did a wonderful job and D could care less about the hat, the only thing he wanted was the treat in my hand. Have a great holiday weekend everyone!!

Denali and I want to thank everyone who came to his meet and greet over the weekend. He had tons of fun showing off his cards and wandering around the gallery greeting everyone. Don’t forget, if you want to purchase his holiday cards or some from his daily collection, they are available on his website.  Have a fabulous week everyone!

Good Morning, Denali style!! It was a long week and Sunday morning I had hopes to sleep in. While I was sleeping in my bed I had this very odd feeling that someone was standing over me, staring at me. When I opened my eyes, much to my surprise, I found on my bed Denali staring at me nose to nose. “Can I help you Denali?” I said. He responded with a very large lick that started at my chin and went up past my eyebrows. “Thank you,” I responded as I wiped the slobber off my face. Momma loves you Denali. Have a great week everyone!!

A simple task, as putting on one’s socks can be quite challenging at times. Denali has always had a thing for socks, he does not care if they are clean or dirty, he just likes to play with them. I have noticed numerous times a variety of my dad’s socks scattered through their house and sometimes I even find them in the corners. My father also gives me weekly lectures on this topic and it usually starts out with, “He’s taking my socks.” So, yesterday I was sitting on my couch putting on my socks and apparently D wanted to play tug-a-war with them. To his surprise, I put my sock on his nose and then he laid his head in my lap and looked up at me. I think if D could speak he would have said “Mommy.” I love you Denali! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Raking Leaves

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:23 am

Denali is a very considerate dog who always offers his assistance whenever I am doing something. Wednesday morning, D followed me outside as I started to rake the leaves. Before I knew it, the pile of leaves I raked was slowly being reorganized into numerous untamed piles in my front yard. “Denali, you’re so thoughtful”, I told him as I walked inside my house to grab my camera. It’s amazing how much fun a dog can have with leaves. Have a great weekend everyone!!
