Morris Animal Foundation

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 11:04 pm

Last week Wilbur had his yearly visit for the Morris Animal Foundation, Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. This study is to help identify risk factors associated with development of cancers and other major issues in dogs. Wilbur, also known as a Hero, is one of 3,000 golden’s participating in this study. Wilbur is amazingly calm as they poke him and collect samples, I don’t know how he does it. One of the best things is my vet, Dr Bopp, lets me hold him while they are doing their thing. Wilbur, you and all the other heros are awesome for participating in this study to help your friends. Have a good week everyone!

St Patrick’s Day

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 11:02 pm

I love art, so the girls and I are always working on new art projects. Since St Patricks Day is this weekend, we painted a shamrock with our hands and made a huge mess. I thought it would be fun to show off their work next to the furry Leprechaun with the orange beard. Sir W looks so cute. Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone!

Mom’s Life

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:52 pm

When you have a toddler, you always have to be ready for the unexpected. Over the weekend, we visited a local Metropark. Before we left the house, I put toddler G on the toilet and she refused to go potty. Soon after we arrived at the playground, she screamed she needs to go potty. Well, I was at one side of the playground with her and Sir W and my husband was at the opposite side. Toddler G kept on shouting, potty, potty so the three of us took off for the bathroom. Thankfully nobody else was in the parks bathroom and we, including Wilbur, all fit into a stall. Sir W did surprisingly well in the bathroom and I had toddler G pet him to calm her. I love my family. Have a great week everyone!

Girl and her dog

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:50 pm

Two of toddler G’s favorite things are books and Sir Wilbur. That’s why I wasn’t surprised when I found her in her bed with both. Some days I find her snuggled up next to him on the ground, trying to tell him about the books she’s looking at. He just looks at her and puts his head down. It’s honestly one of the cutest things. Have a great weekend everyone!

My husband and Wilbur

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:47 pm

This is an odd moment to see in the yard, my husband petting Sir W. I went out back to the shed and I found my husband petting Sir W, while chatting on the phone. He had no idea I was out with my camera, and to catch a moment like this is awesome. I know at times he gets frustrated with Wilbur, but we all get frustrated with things and still love them. I love my boys. Have a great week everyone!

577 Foundation

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:45 pm

With the weather starting to warm up, I decided it was a good time to visit 577 Foundation in Perrysburg with the crew. As soon as I pulled into the lot, Wilbur had his head sticking out of the window smiling and a worker on the grounds said.. Your dog is welcome here too. Thats awesome to know when you go out. Anyways, the girls and Sir W had a blast, especially when we came up to this cool huge ceramic dome. They all went inside and I got photos of them looking out the holes, including Sir W. Have a great weekend everyone!

Salmon for dogs

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:44 pm

Does anyone feed their dogs cooked salmon skin? My brother-in law told me about it, he said too that it’s good for them and I was unaware of this. Sir W will eat just about anything. My goal is to give him dog food, but a few healthy things on the side along with what his two little little ladies share with him is ok. Since this was an experimental photo, I put a bib on him and my husbands carhartt hat to keep him warm. Mr W was actually a good boy and sat patiently while I took his photo with his eyes in deep concentration with the salmon. He ate it and I think he liked it…Shocker!! Have a great week everyone!

Dinner Time

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 2:43 pm

Wilbur is awesome, however when it comes to food we still have issues. He still gets so excited when he eats, that he tries to inhale it all in one gulp, so I need to feed him a few pieces at a time. Toddler G watches me do this every day and recently offered to help me with his meals. I was nervous at first because he sometimes jumps on me when I feed him, but is completely opposite with her. Sir W will patiently stand while she feeds him piece by piece. It’s very interesting how dogs react with different people. Love you Wilbur. Have a great weekend everyone!

Bath Time

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:03 am

Somedays, Sir W picks the worst places to nap. For some reason, he often naps next to the tub when the girls are getting a bath. You would think with all the water splashing and bubbles flying in the air, it would deter him, but no.. He continues to lay there and the girls find joy in seeing how many bubbles they can get on him. He loves his girls. Have a great week everyone!

Wonderful Evening

Filed under: Day in the life — denalithedog @ 7:02 am

On Valentine’s night when you have a dog, a 2 and a 4 year old full of energy, what do you do? Stay home, order cheese bread and have a Valentine’s Days party under the kitchen table with Peppa, Minnie Mouse and Sir W. How awesome is that?! Have a great weekend everyone!
