Best Tricks:
I'm still working on them! But I've got the basics down!

Arrival Story:
I never intended to end up with another dog, let alone a giant one! In fact I never even considered a great dane until a friend I worked with bred her great dane. She kept badgering me to buy one and I kept telling her no. We were close friends so I saw the little nuggets frequently and they were adorable but I already had a wonderful dog, I didn't need another one, especially one what would eat so much! Clyde was always my favorite of the litter because he wouldn't object to the forced cuddling I always subjected him too. He was easy to tell apart from the others because of his herniated navel. I was attached but still not enough to commit. As Clyde and his siblings got older and had their shots my friend persuaded me to take Clyde for the day "Just to socialize him some more or give him some individual attention". I should have realized what her agenda was!I brought him over to meet Eva my lab mix and she was thrilled! Only too happy to share her bones and water bowel. And yes once Clyde came to stay with us for the day I was in love and he never left! Now all that was left was to tell the boyfriend after he came back from army training what a wonderful surprise I had for him :)

Crazy Weekend

I have had a crazy weekend!! On Saturday I decided to scare the crap out of my Mommy.....BOL!! But it back fired a little bit in that she ended up taking me to the vet.....so that part didn't work out so well but I did get to take a car ride and get tons of attention! So here is what happened, Mommy and Daddy took Eva and I for a walk in the morning, we came back to the house and instead of laying down and sleeping like I usually do I started pacing. Mommy thought maybe I needed to go to the bathroom ( she calls me a pooping machine) so she let me outside. But instead I decided to start eating grass and I mean eating grass like I was mowing the lawn. Mommy said I was acting just like a horse! I ate alot of grass.........and then I started vomiting.....This freaked Mommy out! ( She is very obsessed with us as daddy calls it) I guess I vomited lots of times. Next thing I know Mommy is loading me in the Jeep and asking me to not vomit in the car! And where did we go instead of somewhere fun but the vet...not what I had in mind. They touched my tummy and took my temp. and you know put things up my butt!! Which was so not cool! I tried to avoid it but it was three against one! No getting around that! Everything came out fine, which was a huge relief to Mommy. She always worries about my tummy, something about it turning over....I don't know but everything was fine! Well except for the vomiting. Mommy admits she may have freaked out a bit but she told Daddy its better to be safe than sorry especially on a weekend, something about it being easier on the wallet.
And the next day of my crazy weekend Mommy and Daddy loaded me and Eva up in the car and took us to PetsMart to take pictures with Santa!! It was crazy busy! I have never seen so many people and doggies before! And for some reason everyone always wants to pet me...I must be pretty good looking! They always exclaim at how big I am! And then when they find out I'm just a puppy they are even more astounded! I don't mind all of the attention though and I let everyone pet me! Mommy says I am a very good boy! Especially because Eva doesn't always want everyone to pet her and some people forget to ask these things. Our picture turned out awesome though and Mommy says it benefits the Montgomery County Humane Society for other doggies without homes. Daddy made Mommy look at all the doggies who needed homes. Mommy says she hates too because she can't handle their sad little eyes and if she had her way she would take them all! Well now I'm exhausted...I think i'll take a nap right here on the couch and recuperate.

 

Rain, rain go away!!

Four days!!! Four days we have been stuck in the house with all the rain. Its getting rough not being able to run outside in the yard, having my paws wiped everytime I come in the house, being all wet and not allowed on the bed, and having barely any room to run around with Eva. Plus daddy isn't here to play rough house with! Mommy makes me be very gentle with her I'm not allowed to tug her around on my leash or lean on her too much because sometimes shes not expecting it and she has too work to keep her balance! Thats ok though because I'm a very gentle guy its just trying to ignore my puppy instincts that tell me to PLAY PLAY PLAY! My pal Eva has been playing with me alot more than she used too! We battle over all the toys and get stuffing all over the floor! Its epic.....but I wish it would stop raining soon so we can take walks outside again!! My first winter and I already don't like it....hope it gets better soon!

What to do about the wandering dogs in our neighborhood???

We recently moved to a new neighborhood with lots of doggies and lots of fenced in yards. This is the third time in two months i've seen loose dogs wandering down my street.The dogs clearly are not strays and belong somewhere. We don't know too many of our neighbors yet and I never really sure which house the dogs are from. I don't want to bring them to my house ( Eva is very territorial) what do I do? Pick them up and take them to the humane society or let them keep wandering the neighborhood ( its a big sprawling southern one)?? I want to help but I dont want to me or my dogs at risk. Any suggestions?
