ALS challenge

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 5:49 am

Sir w was challenged yesterday by his Aunt Sue for the ALS ice bucket challenge. Instead of dumping an ice cold bucket of water on Sir W, we decided to have him pose with a bucket and the envelope we are sending to ALS with our donation. Have a great week everyone!

My boys

I thought this was kinda cool… My husband arrived home from work, took a phone call and sat near the door petting Sir W. (If you look closely, we haven’t fixed the screen door and currently have a baby gate in front of it.) I was sitting across from them on the couch with the baby watching the two of them. Sir W looks so happy the way he’s leaning and my husband looks so relaxed. Have a good weekend everyone!

Screens

My husband and I recently moved and Sir W has already left his mark at the new place. As everyone knows, Sir W had issues with my screen door at my old house and apparently he does not like the new screen slider too. Sir W is the best. Have a good week everyone!

Driving with your dog

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 5:24 am

Tuesday, I went on a quick day trip with my parents and the baby to Michigan. Somehow, I got stuck in the back of their mini-van with Sir W while baby G was in the center with her Nonna. Soon after we got onto the highway, my lap became a resting place for Sir W which was fine with me because on our way home he snuggled so close I used him as my armrest. Love them dogs. Have a good weekend everyone!

Golden loves boat rides

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 5:23 am

The summer has gone by so fast and we had yet to go out on the boat, so Saturday afternoon we took the boat out. The only problem was the waves were huge, about 3 to 6 feet tall, and we had no clue until we arrived on Lake Erie. So we ended up turning around as soon as we arrived to the lake. I, being a good mom, dressed Sir W in a life jacket and glasses to help protect him during our brief ride. He’s the best. Have a good week everyone!

Golden Retriever in Drivers Seat

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 5:29 am

As everyone knows Sir W loves to go for rides in the Jeep and his favorite spot to sit is next to me. Just about every single time Sir W is with me and I step out of the Jeep for a second or two, Wilbur jumps over to my seat and gets into his driving position. People love it, I have had so many people stop and chat with me about Sir W and just laugh at him. I took this shot of W in his position, he’ s so serious. Love you Sir W. Have a good weekend everyone!

Happy Birthday Denali

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 5:24 am

Tuesday would have been Denali’s 13th birthday so I thought it would be good to share with everyone a photo of D and Sir W from his 11th birthday party. Denali always loved his birthdays because I always baked him his doggie carrot cake. I thought this would be a fun photo to share again because they both looked so happy. Happy Birthday Denali, I love you so much. Have a good week everyone!

Golden Retriever does not like Rabbits!

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:49 am

Sir W has issues with numerous things, the latest to add to his list are rabbits. Denali on the other hand loved everything, once I even found a mouse in my house, he looked at it and fell back asleep.. Go D! It’s just amazing how the two boys are complete opposite. I just wish Sir W would be a little bit more friendly with wildlife like his brother. I miss you Denali.

Golden Polar Bear

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:38 am

Sir W loves to fetch his orange chuckit balls. He will play fetch for hours with these balls and he will not stop running until we stop throwing. Denali on the other hand, would run after the balls a couple of times then lay down, he did this even too when he was younger. Sunday afternoon I had Sir W in the yard and he was impressing me with polar bear looking catches so, I wanted to share one with all of you. Have a good week everyone!
