New Collars

The girls received new collars from their friend Hermann yesterday. Hermann is a Great Dane also as well as a fabulous therapy dog here in Puerto Rico. His mom distributes Eagle Pack dog food which is what the girls eat. Great kibble by the way. OK, on to the collars. They're from a company called Rogz and are new here in PR, thanks to Hermann and his mom.

Snorkling doggies for Roxy

Bones for Lilly

Lilly says, "Don't we look COOOOOOOOOOL?!

**Just a reminder about collars. Especially if you have multiple dogs, it's not good practice to leave any type of collar on unattended dogs. There have been numerous stories of playing dogs getting collars wrapped around their jaws or hooked on teeth, leading to serious injuries.

Cyber Friends

We received a "Friends Award" from our cyber friend Sasha the Princess. Thanks a bunch! Here's what it said....

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

We're passing the Friends Award on to...

Behr Behr 'cause we think she's so funny.

Huey & Higgins since Huey is our bestest friend ever. We've never actually met Higgins since he was born in Hawaii but any brother of Huey's must be cool too.

Addie for being such a sweet girl and always leaving nice comments on our photos. She has a new little sis too.

Jackson who's a very clever Dane working on his UD title. You can follow his training and progress.

Shadrach the Neo has a great blog that I recently found. It's filled with all sorts of excellent links to natural dog care and welfare as well as some fun stories.

Amber the beautiful and very talented Golden Retriever.

The Zoo Crew is back after a short hiatus.

The Painter Pack a pretty amazing bunch from TN.

Happy Reading!

Great Toy

Roxy received a really cool toy for Christmas. It's called Skinneeez. Skinneeez look a bit like roadkill but the girls love them. They're like plush toys without the filling. They also have a squeaker in both ends which Lilly finds endlessly amusing. The girls throw it around and play tug with it all the time and it's still going strong. Great toy!!

Playing tug

What? I'm playing nice!

Maybe if I bite her head...

Really Yummy!

Our friends Huey & Higgins sent us some yummy treats for Christmas and we just opened them today. They're called Shortbread Dog Treats made by Exclusively Pet, Inc When I opened them up they smelled soooo good! Just like shortbread, yummy! I just had to taste them and am happy to say, they're pretty good for a dog cookie. They do have some fructose in them but contain all natural, "real" ingredients. The girls approved in a big way!

Take a Seat...

Roxy takes the best seat in the house. Not only is it on the couch but it's right next to Dad!
For those of you not familiar with Great Dane traits and behaviors, this is very common. We joke about telling them to sit and they have to back up to find the nearest chair, sofa or lap. The sitting and leaning are two things about Danes that I find so endearing. Roxy looks like she's falling asleep in this photo!

On the Lookout

Lilly is always on the lookout for a camera! Here we are going off for a walk and she had to turn around to make sure she was in the shot. What a ham!

Happy New Year! Here's to a happy, healthy 2009 for everyone.

If today is any indication of the year to come, it's going to be stellar! We had the most gorgeous day and spent a good portion of it at the beach. Lilly is still sporting her Christmas bandana from Huey and Higgins and clearly enjoying herself while watching her brother catch some waves.
