Apple Orchard

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:44 pm

This past weekend we did our yearly apple picking extravaganza. However, this apple orchard visit, it was hot. It was in the 90’s and we were all sweating like crazy, except Sir W. He was relaxing in the truck, in air conditioning, listening to classic rock. I did let him take a quick sniff of some apples and that’s when I got his photo, of course from in the cool truck. Have a great week everyone!

This is Sir W caught in the act with little G. They are quick, you walk away for a few seconds and come back and find your little girl with a huge smile and Sir W licking his lips at the dinner table. As long as it doesn’t happen all the time, I’m okay with it but don’t tell my husband! Have a great weekend everyone !

Andy’s Army

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:40 pm

Sunday morning Sir W and I took part in the Andy’s Army Canine Cancer walk at Side Cut Park in Maumee. In 2009, Sue Bechtel adopted her rescue golden, Andy, and he died of cancer that following November. Andy’s plight started the annual Andy’s Army Walk and Run for canine cancer research in 2010. The Andy’s Army Canine Cancer Awareness Project is an outgrowth of the walk and run and it is dedicated to public education about canine cancer and continued fundraising for canine cancer research. I have known Sue for a few years and I’m so excited that Sir W and I joined the walk this year. I thought it would be fun to have Sir W posing with Sue and at the start of the walk. He did so well. Have a great week everyone!

When my husband comes home from work, everyone greets him. He sits on the bench and Wilbur and the girls run up to him and tell him about their day. By the time they are done, Sir W is napping at his feet. Awww..Have a great weekend everyone!

Great Dane & A Golden

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:43 pm

It’s been a couple of years and I thought it would be fun to do an update of Sir W an his old friend and old neighbor Tyesen, the Great Dane. The first photo I took of them was in April of 2014 and he was a tiny little puppy next to Denali and Sir Wilbur. Three years later, Tyesen is 125 to Sir W’s 73 pounds. Wow..It was so cute when they saw each other, Sir W went to the ground and squealed with delight and waggled his tail like crazy as Tyesen started to sniff and play with him. I honestly think they remember each made my heart melt. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Ballet Class

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:42 pm

I have the girls enrolled in a beginners ballet class. They have these adorable outfits to wear, depending on their mood, they might wear them. Since it’s just the beginning of the session, I wanted a photo of them. Little G took off her tutu and started to pout so I put it on Wilbur, then big G wanted to hug W instead of posing for a photo. However, Sir W did good and posed for the photo. Have a great weekend everyone !

Pear Trees

Filed under: Uncategorized — denalithedog @ 1:40 pm

This is how Sir W spent the majority of this past weekend. My neighbors have a pear tree close to our fence, they have been dropping non stop and it has been driving him crazy. He will start out standing, then after a wee bit he will lay down and possibly start talking about them. Sir W is well fed due to the girls and me, but he always wants more. Hope you’re having a good Labor Day weekend everyone !

Sir W is a good sport, I have to admit. I was informed by my daughters that they wanted to play with him on their playground. As usual, I did not think much of it, but then I realized that they wanted him ON their playground. So I reluctantly picked up Wilbur and brought him to the girls. They were happy and so was he. You’re awesome Wilbur.. Have a great weekend everyone !

Grocery Shopping

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 9:37 pm

Does this ever happen to anyone after grocery shopping? You set the bags down and the inspectors come. First it was Wilbur, shocking, yes… then little G comes to help. She actually picks up the bags and tries to carry them while Sir W looks to see if anything might be open. Speaking of being open, on this occasion seconds after I shot this, I noticed Wilbur had a blueberry bagel in his mouth. Apparently the bagel bag was ripped and he was hungry. My husband and I tried to take the remaining bagels away, but he got two. Well, have a good week everyone!

Snow Lake

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 9:35 pm

We took the family on a little vacation to Snow Lake in Indiana. The girls had a total blast playing on a little beach and everything was great until we had to put life jackets on the girls. Wow the drama, after screaming, tears, laying on the ground kicking, they started to calm down when I got Sir W’s jacket. The girls watched carefully as I put on his jacket and agreed to wear theirs too. Love you Wilbur. Have a great weekend everyone!
