Midwest Camera Repair

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:10 am

Since I am a bit clumsy, Denali and I visit Midwest Camera Repair in Wyandotte, MI often. D and I are well known at the shop. If Denali has not joined me inside, usually one of the workers will go outside and pet D as he waits for me in the Jeep. Tuesday, D joined me inside while they were looking over my gear and they invited us upstairs to the repair room. As soon as we entered the repair room, D instantly grew a liking for one of the workers named Sam. I’m not sure if Denali was trying to offer a helping paw to Sam or what..but Sam the repair man was a good sport. Thankfully, they fixed my camera in time so I could get a shot of D assisting Sam..Good Times.. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!

Dog Grooming

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:02 am

Denali loves getting his hair brushed, I think he thinks it’s some type of a massage? D will sometimes lay on his back or belly for hours while he is getting brushed. Then, when we stop brushing him, he’ll start to whine until the person starts brushing again. The other day while I was grooming him outside, Bentley and Remi’s niece was visiting next door. She ran over and offered to help me brush him. Denali sat there with a huge smile, she brushed him for about twenty minutes until she said, “My arm is getting sore.” Go D.. He has us all trained well. Have a fabulous week everyone!

Ultimate Test

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:20 am

Greetings Everyone!! Surprisingly, my son Denali fooled us all and chose his dog food over my fruity cheerios. I was shocked, I was so expecting him to dive head first into my fruity cheerios. When I told my parents about my ‘scientific experiment,’ both my mother and father guessed instantly that D would choose his tasty doggie food over cheerios. My father said, “Don’t doubt me, I know that dog.” Thanks, Dad.. Alrighty then… Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!

Scientific Experiment

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:19 am

I’m titling this post, Scientific Experiment with DENALI THE DOG. Every morning while I’m eating my fruity cheerios and drinking my espresso, D always wants some of my cereal. So, Saturday morning I gave Denali the ultimate test. I challenged his love for my fruity cheerios to his good old fashioned dog food. Since this was a ‘scientific experiment’ I found D a lab coat and a pair of goggles to help protect him. Okay, so guess which one he chose?? Have a fabulous week everyone.. I will tell everyone his answer on Thursday.

St Patrick’s Day

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:02 am

To get Denali into the holiday spirit, I dressed D in this cute leprechaun costume. Isn’t he cute! (note, he was not too happy about the pipe:) With St Patty’s Day this weekend, you always hear of people drinking green beer. Well, Denali and I could care less about the beer and our drink of choice is McDonald’s shamrock shake, we LOVE them. Most of all, Denali and I want to wish everyone a happy and safe St Patty’s Day!

Attention

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 6:14 am

When D want’s my attention, he has no problem letting me know about it. Normally he’ll walk up to me, start to wiggle his tail, and stare at me. If I do not respond, he will lay his head on my lap, sigh loudly, and nudge my arm until I give him the attention he deserves. Is my son Denali spoiled?? No… I just love him. Have a great week everyone!

SNOW ANGEL

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:09 am

We’ve had very little snow this past winter in Ohio and Denali just LOVES the snow. To our surprise, on Monday morning when I opened the door, I noticed a fresh layer of snow on the ground. Being a thoughtful mum, Denali (note he was not too happy with me) and I played 4 rounds of “give Momma your paw.” After successfully winning the game, D was prancing around my kitchen in his cute purple snow boots before he leaped out the door. A few minutes after he was outside, I stood in the doorway laughing, watching him master his ‘snow angels’. Denali you’re so cute! Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Dogs & Ice Cream

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:13 am

Denali and I were overjoyed to find out that our favorite ice cream shop, Mr Freeze in Perrysburg, has opened for the season. So Saturday, even though the temperature was 35 out with the windchill at 25 with a very cold wind blowing upon us, Denali and I bravely stood outside ordering our ice cream. Thankfully, I was wearing my down coat and had my gloves and scarf. To keep D warm I brought along his ear muffs and a bib to keep him clean. After I purchased our toasty ice cream, Denali was very kind and lead me to a picnic table so I could feed him. At least this time, I did not have to worry about the ice cream melting. Have a great week everyone!

Best Friends

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:20 am

Denali and I made a quick stop at my cousins house to pick up our girl scout cookies. When we arrived at the door, we were greeted by their two English bulldogs, Jasmine and Sugar. Moments after Denali stepped into their house, the two dogs took Denali on a tour of their place. It was funny because every so often you’d hear pitter-patter of their paws along with a few looong slides on the hardwood floor, which eventually lead into booms when they hit the wall. Finally, when the furry ‘kids’ relaxed, the little puppy, Sugar, started to snuggle up to Denali and I though it was the cutest thing. Have a great weekend everyone!!
