A weekend for the dogs

      2 Comments on A weekend for the dogs

Stella and Duncan are a mix of the worlds’ most awesome dogs + most annoying dogs. I’m not sure what the ratios of awesome to annoying actually are, but I guess it depends on what day it is.  While most of the destruction is over, there are still those incidents of terrible behavior that remind why I find them annoying.  This weekend, for instance, one of the beasts found my Ray Bans someplace , and chewed them. Except, I only found a single lens– nothing else. I assume that means they ate the other lens and the frames and perhaps will poop them out– but there’s just no telling. There’s also the possibility they hid them in that secret spot only the dogs know about where all the ‘missing’ things are hidden.

Duncan Doodle – October 2014


We spent Saturday and Sunday morning as we always do, at the Cedar Bark Dog Park. Saturday morning Stella was introduced to Jax, a 9 month old Dane. She was VERY happy to meet him, and they got along beautifully.

Oh, and don’t think that this weekend was all about Ms. Thang. Our Little Mister was also involved in some pretty awesome dog park day activities. As you can see, he was a swimming machine. This is one of my favorite pics. He just slightly overshot his ball, and curled up to try to hit it,  and resulting in a belly/face flop. It was completely adorable.


Damn it!! Overshot!



Throw the ball one more time, Daddy!

Stella was especially annoyed when we left the park on Sunday morning, because she had to get a real bath out of the waterhose. It was about 69 degrees and she was super annoyed by the entire thing. She shivered in the car on the way home (which, by that time, was 74 degrees) and you’d have thought she’d been left out overnight in the snow. We got home and she was TERRRRRRIBLE. As you can see from the photo below, she decided to run hard enough to break the sound barrier, causing that weird ripple in her fat rolls. 🙂

This is what Great Dane skin looks like when it breaks the sound barrier.


She then attacked Duncan, for a solid 10 minutes. I’m sure you can all imagine what happened right after I snapped this photo. You can see by her hugely gaping maw, and his poor little Doodle body frozen in mid-air, that events that went down right after I snapped this photo were no bueno. Truly.




Oh, and Duncan wasn’t the only one who was forced to pay for Stella’s terrible behavior. Daddy was made to pay as well.

As you can see our yard is the graveyard of all things stuffy…

Boxing with Daddy!


Sadly, Jay had a few war wounds after this ‘play’ session with Stella.

Belly wounds


All in all, it was a fantastic weekend for both us and the dogs. Don’t know what I’d do without these silly dogs– they truly are adorable. And awful.
