A Walk in the Park

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 8:14 pm

I can honestly tell you that Sir W has been doing amazing with other dogs. So far we have attended 3 to 4 walks along the Maumee River with A Walk in the Park and Sir W is improving every time. Even last week, we visited A Walk in the Park and Sir W was in a room without a collar or leash playing with other dogs. Shocking…YES!! Well, here’s happy Sir W yesterday during the morning walk with some new friends. Have a great week everyone!

Golden LOVES Dirt!!!

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 8:12 pm

He’s back at it again… eating dirt. This must be some type of gourmet meal for him. My husband says he’s crazy and the doctor is not worried, but I am annoyed. As you all know, we have a project going on in our yard, I was picking up some pieces of dirt and Mr W took them out of my hand and was eating them!! I thought this would be a fun photo to illustrate this and he tried to swipe some dirt from the plate too. So that means he’s back on the leash when in the yard. Wilbur I love you, but you frustrate me. Have a great week everyone!!

Puppy Love

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:01 pm

Sir W had a minor accident on his paw and had to wear a collar on his head for a few days. Surprisingly, he had no problems wearing it, but the girls had a problem with it. For some reason, little G hated seeing him in it and kept on taking it off his head and running off with it. Big G loved playing peak-a-boo with him and the collar. The girls also played doctor with Wilbur and he could have cared less, a few minutes after I took this his head was down and he was snoring. Wilbur you are awesome..and yes his paw is doing better. Have a great weekend everyone!!

A work in progress

This weekend my husband finally had time to work on the shed. My goal was to keep the girls and Sir W far away from the project and as usual, I was unsuccessful with my mission. After my husband got the four walls up, toddler G asked my husband, “where’s the roof?”. My husband looked at me and said, “you sound like your mother”. I have a shot of Sir W posing while the girls were inspecting his work. Have a great week everyone!!

SUNFLOWERS

If you all remember, in early May I took a photo of Sir W with some tiny sunflower plants. Well, it’s a few months later and guess what.. We have flowers, not a ton, but a few and some of them are around 6 foot tall. Shocking….yes!!! Here is a photo of Sir W posing with them, he’s so proud, and so am I. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Little helpers

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:53 pm

Sir W likes to be involved with things going on at home and so does little G. She just turned 2 a few weeks ago and sees my husband and I washing the dishes, so she wants to help. As usual, Sir W being Sir W, likes to be close so he lays below them, napping while little G helps my husband. I love my family. Have a great week everyone!

A work in progress

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:48 pm

Sir W has been good lately with things, and that’s quite odd for him. We visited a friend who has an older dog named Carley, and Wilbur did well. They have met a couple of times and Sir W seems to be okay with her. My next experiment is to bring Carley to our home for a visit and see how Mr W does with that. This is a shot of the two of them resting under a trampoline, until toddler G ran over to Carley for a hug and then off to Wilbur for a hug. She’s the best. Have a great weekend everyone!

A Walk in the Park

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 1:47 pm

Everyone knows that Sir W is not the best with other dogs. A few people have suggested to take him to a guy named Dirk who runs A Walk in the Park in Maumee, Ohio. Well, I gave him a ring and he suggested for us to join his weekly Sunday 1030 am walk at Side Cut Park. Roughly 18 dogs attended and it was shocking…Dirk took Wilbur, and I walked his dog Duke on the first part of our stroll. I could tell Wilbur was nervous, not being with me, but he was awesome. I have never seen Wilbur so well behaved with so many dogs. Normally he’s growling and pretending to be mean. Dirk was very calm and relaxed, his love for dogs is undeniable. We had such a nice experience, I hope to join a few of these walks on Sunday if we are not busy. Go Wilbur and Thanks Dirk for inviting us… Have a great week everyone!!

Dog eating DIRT

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 9:48 pm

This I just don’t understand… Wilbur is eating dirt! He is fed numerous times during the day from the girls and I. The last time he visited the vet, I was told he needs to lose weight. As you all know, we have a little project in our backyard and I put down grass seed over some of the ground, after we water it is when he eats the dirt. Now, once again, Wilbur is on a leash when he goes in the backyard. He, nor I or my husband, are happy about it. This is a photo I took soon after we cleaned his mouth out, does anyone else have this problem??

Fresh Concrete

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 9:46 pm

We had concrete poured in our backyard for our new shed. I was instructed numerous times by my husband to keep Sir W far away from the fresh concrete. Soon after it was poured, I wrote our names in it, including Sir W. Then toddler G thought it would be fun to run across the fresh concrete in her rain boots. So, we have her boot marks in a circular form in the center of it.. All of this was occurring while Sir W was on a leash being a good boy. Have a great weekend everyone!
