Deliquent on updating pictures here, but have enjoyed lots of activities lately with the dogs.

Before the water fun, we explored Ledges State Park:
L-R: Kizzy, Heidi, Gigi
Photo session fun:
Kizzy at 8 1/2 years old; Heidi (standing) and Gigi at 2 years old
Immediately following that picture:
The chase is on!
Kizzy still has it!
When I work from home I get to see how my pets (note cat on the couch) spend their days. They have it rough!
Beautiful, albeit muddy, evening today, after several days of rain. The girls and I enjoyed a walk in the fields and woods behind the house.

Kizzy says “pfsss” to a photo shoot
I enjoyed a long walk on the first day of spring with the girls. Love these days we can take our nice long walks!
Stopped at the park and snapped a quick picture of the girls. Long walks with my pups is bliss for me. 🙂

As someone who regularly walks multiple dogs, I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see loose dogs. I usually modify my route, to avoid, if I see a loose dog up ahead. It is not cool to have a dog rush me when I’m walking 300+ lbs of dog. I’ve been pretty lucky so far and typically can yell at the approaching dog with a stern, “NO! GO HOME!” and they seem to listen. <knock on wood> My dogs seem confident that I’ll deal with the situation and don’t get too riled up.
The other night when we got to obedience class, Gigi had to drop down to super sneaky stealth mode in order to stalk her bestie (Isla, the Lab). I bet Isla never even saw her.
She cracks me up!
Like any dog, mine love racing around, just to enjoy being alive. Makes me happy to see them happy!

Kizzy in the lead… not too bad for Dane who will be eight years old in a month!

The Great Dane Club of Des Moines has formed a “Great Dane Meet Up Group“. We had our first event yesterday – a walk around Gray’s Lake in Des Moines. We had eleven Danes show up! Not bad for our first event. It was a fun time, getting to meet other Dane owners and causing quite the scene as we paraded around the park. The beautiful weather drew lots of people outside! Kizzy and Gigi both had a great time.
