Quick Bio:

January 23rd 2006

Going on walks, playing, hiking, playing, eating what I'm not supposed to, playing, running, and OTHER DOGS!

Howler monkeys on TV!! Good lord, it takes him about 10 min. to figure out they're on TV. During that time he covers EVERY SQUARE INCH of the house, barking like the end of the world is coming and he's going to single-pawedly stop it!

Favorite Toy:
Anything that has a really annoying squeaker.

Favorite Food:
Definitely the yummy home cooked meals and treats from www.diningfordogs.com!! He totally starts drooling when he sees me taking one of the containers out of the fridge!!

Favorite Walk:
Probably Linear Park because there's so much area to run around and explore!! But the beach is a close second because I can dig in the sand and not get in trouble!! His favorite dog park is definitely the Hazeldale park!!

Best Tricks:
Sliming people right after he's drank out of his water bowl!

Arrival Story:
I have been obsessing over great danes for sooooo many years! Ever since I saw a couple walk into the pet store I was shopping at with they're pairof gorgeous danes, I knew that was the breed for me. I got in contact with a local breeder and originally, someone else wanted Heffner and I was going to wait for the next litter. That person changed their mind and the breeder immediately contacted me. When she sent me the most recent picture of him, I seriously squealed out loud and knew he was the dog for me. When we went to pick him up at the breeder's, he actually greeted us right at the door as she opened it!! Since then we've joined a really fun great dane group, PDX Danes (www.pdxdanes.org). It's been a lot of fun seeing Heffner running around with the other big kids!

Heffner is totally my #1 little man!! He loves going any where and trying anything with me! We go hiking all the time; he loves going snowshoeing with me; he just generally loves going new places. We've been taking agility classes for a little while now and we've had a BLAST! You can totally tell that he just loves going after the obstacles! New to our roster this year is skijoring! Thanks to the help of Kim Tinker and a custom fit harness, we are on our way. Just for kicks we entered the Frog Lake Sled dog races in Jan. and had a lot of fun.

I'm sure a lot of you are getting these tagging messages! I've gotten tagged by three of my pup pals so far! We see how my mom does at keeping up with all of this!:)

Here's how it works, you have to list 7 things about yourself, then Tag 7 friends whom you list in your diary. PM those friends to let them know they were tagged and to read your diary if they want to play.

1. I'm a rough, tough, cream puff!
2. I like to bark.........A LOT, and especially at the dog park!
3. I like to suck on vacuum cleaner hoses!
4. I think that kitty poop is a delicacy.
5. I like to walk up to my mom during the night, burp in her face, and then go back to sleep.
6. I don't always know where my legs are going!
7. I have a new house mate, Trinity!!

I tagged: Cruz, Giner, Sherman, Lady Sakura, Shasta, Porter, and Koko.



Bark in the Park!

I thought I was going to get to go somewhere really cool today, but it wasn't quite as fun as I thought it would be. But I'll get to that.

Today my mom took me to PGE park for Bark in the Park to watch the Portland Beavers. It sounded really cool and I'm always up for checking out new places. Plus it usually means treats and tons of attention for me!:) And of course, my mom had to do my toe nails all special for the occasion. Ug! She really needs some little tiny dog to dote on or something. I'm a big strong boy and I don't need to get my nails painted! But I do get a lot of attention for it.:)

We met up with a couple of my great dane buddies and got to sit right down by the field! My mom even let me have some of her hot dog!! After a little while of not really doing anything, the rain really started to bother me. My mom put down a towel for me to lay on, but it got really soaked real quick. And I was starting to feel cold. So we all moved up into our actual seats. I just couldn't stand still though! I was pretty uncomfortable being wet and cold and not really having anything to lie down on. Finally, after a little while, we left.

We definitely would have had a better time if the weather hadn't been so crappy! I'm looking forward to the next one though! Mmmmmmmm......hot dogs.........



Doggie Dash 2007!!!

This morning I got really excited when my mom got up early and it was starting to look like we were going some where!! Sure enough, we drove into Portland down by the river front. There were sooooooooooooo many dogs and they're people walking around! I started pacing around in the car and couldn't wait to get out and say hello and check things out!

We joined something called the Doggie Dash. It was a blast! We walked around the river front with so many other dogs! There were a lot of other great danes there and we walked with a bunch from our dane group!

My mom had to embarass me by painting my toe nails metallic blue. At first I couldn't believe that she was doing this to me AGAIN! But you know what? I got so much attention for it! And really, there's nothing wrong with lots of loves and pets! I guess I'll let her get away with it again.

We had a lot of fun and we're looking forward to doing the Run for the Love of Dove in June!
