YIKES! What the heck is that?

Just testing out the new Dustbuster I bought today. Roxy has no problem with the regular vacuum but apparently this was a little confusing. She inspected it from a distance, circled it a few times and then barked at it.

Maybe I'm supposed to play with it?

or stare it down?

She ended up staying in her sphinx pose 'til I put it away! Notice that Lilly stayed in the background the whole time. Big sisters should take care of these thing you know!

We Miss You Huey!


Look what time it is at Huey's house! Six whole hours earlier than here in Puerto Rico. Roxy and Lilly's best, best friend Huey moved to Honolulu earlier this year. We miss him and his family soooo much. Everyone got along great and we had a ton of fun during the 2 years they were here with us.

So here's to you Huey!! We took a photo today at the seaglass beach just so you won't forget what we look like. Look, just like old times!

If you want to catch up with Huey and see what's going on in Hawaii, you can visit his blog Hawaiian Dane

Dollars for Danes

According to Lilly, this is something you really need to check out!

Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League is holding a big on-line auction. Anyone can bid for the wide assortment of awesome items they have.

MAGDRL is a 9-state organization that rescues, rehabilitates and finds homes for abandoned, neglected and abused Great Danes. It is run completely by volunteers! They do a great job and really deserve to make some good money on this auction. You can jump on over there and start viewing and bidding right NOW! Auction site

Furniture Wars

Hubby and the dogs are at war over a particular piece of furniture, namely the "new" sofa. OK, we've had the sofa for over a year, maybe two, but who's counting. The Danes have their own chaise which is big enough for the two of them. Sophie doesn't get on the furniture. She never was allowed to and so never took up the habit. However, I have my suspicions about this "new" sofa, but that will remain our secret. Anyway, the chaise finally has gotten so gross that it needed to be reupholstered which is being done now. So what's a dog to do? Well, duh! That great big champagne colored microfiber sectional was calling their names! Never, EVER will I buy light colored microfiber again. I've heard people rave about it but it sure doesn't work with my crew.
Its been maddening trying to catch them. Almost every time we'd come in, you could see paw prints or drool on the sofa but the little darlings would be standing by the door all happy to see you with tongues hanging out and bums furiously wagging.
Solution: baby gate, stair gate, whatever you want to call them. Ran off to Toys R Us this morning to pick one up. As soon as I got in line to pay, I remembered how much I used to hate this store. I'm sure every mother has experienced trying to carry a screaming child out of Toys R Us without attracting too much attention. Guess what? It still happens. Brought back some memories that did!
But I digress. I bought the tallest(36") gate they had and got it installed no problem, no tools required. This is what I bought.
Here's Roxy checking out the installation process and thinking, "You have GOT to be kidding!".
And the finished product with Sophie and Lilly "in jail". Poor kids!
Sophie showing her disgust at the new contraption.
Hopefully now, we can all live in peace and harmony and hubby can be happy that the dogs aren't on the sofa when they're home alone, which by the way is hardly ever!

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Poor abused dogs can hardly take a nap without having a camera shoved in their faces! Nothing better on a hot day than a siesta on the cool tile floor. Roxy, Lilly and Sophie show you just how it's done.

New Look, New Name

A message from Roxy

I'm not competing in Rally very much since there aren't very many shows here in Puerto Rico. Because of this, Mom thought I should share my space a bit more with my sisters, Lilly and Sophie. Sooo, we're changing the title of MY blog to The PR Gang. The address will remain the same. Mom will still keep you updated of my progress in Rally but we'll also show you more pics of Lilly, she's the harl, and Sophie who really thinks she rules the kingdom. We do a ton of fun stuff here in PR and want to let you in on it too!

Sittin' on the dock of the bay

Just hanging out by the bay of San Juan today and I was trying to get a few good shots of my guys and the dogs. Of course no one can cooperate all at the same time! Lilly seems to have something to say about her position in the first one and Roxy saw something much more interesting behind her in the second. Oh well, good effort and we had fun playing around.

It's a Hard Life!

It's a real hard life around here for the dogs!
Lilly and Roxy are showing you a few of their activities during a typical day. Lounging is obviously high on the list!
