It's a SNOW day!
















Everyday that I go to work I take my dog Blue with me. He's a Great Dane mix and he's deaf. Last time I weighed him he came in at 164 lbs. He is a bit of a couch potato and loves his food and treats. I've tried to cut back on his food but then he gets hungry and starts looking for stuff. Since his head is level with the kitchen table and the counters I have to be very careful not to leave anything out. He once ate a box of Poptarts and most of the box itself. He's eaten cereal that hadn't been opened yet. Popped the lid off of a jar of peanut butter and also got into a bag of tortilla chips. (You might have noticed how healthy I am!) anyway, I have tried switching to a lowfat food but then I catch him sneaking into the laundry room to eat the little ones kibble! Both Blue and I have been trying to be more active, so today when I got to work and business was so slow (because everyone in town is indoors hibernating!) I decided to try and play with him in the big enclosed play area that we have behind our boarding faculty. I was laughing so hard that it was difficult to take some of the photos. It's pretty rare to see him REALLY RUN! I guess he just got a burst of energy from all the cold and snow! So here's some pics of him racing around!
God, I love that dog!

your dog is adorable!!!! I love him!
he reminds me of a book I read once called Amazing Gracie about a great dane who was deaf. She was white like your guy.
what a cutie he is.

He's so cute! The thing that has me laughing is that he is cammo - except for a few spots. hahaha! I have a friend who has this huge yellow lab, and he once ate an ENTIRE bag of oatmeal she had left on the kitchen counter - bag and all. LOL! I am trying to be more active, too. It isn't working!! :) xox Pam

Morning!!! It's 7am and catching up on things that need to be done today. So Hello to youuuu! How are you!! Thanks for visiting me is always a pleasure to have such wonderful spirited friends come by though we never met - But it feels like I have met you. Love your spirit and your dog blue is simply soooooooooo adorable. He's so cute!! I love him too. You know Brook loves grapes and pomegran and popcorn. One night I heard her downstairs in the living room making some weird noises and I went carefully down the stairs to see what she was up to and my God! I left a whole bag of grapes and she ate them all. She loves loves pomegran for sure, it's her favorite.

Your dog blue blends real nicely in the snow and looks like he is having a lot of fun fun!! Dogs look so cute when they play. Brook never saw snow and now that she has- she goes absolutely wild and playful!!! She makes me laugh!! I love watching her. As for my cat - in the morning for some reason he run like a crazy cat up and down the stairs and back into the bedroom and under the covers making this adorable sound when he gets excited!

Well dear you have a great one today!! it's cold out here but real nice.

Love that Blue! I'd give him all the treats he wanted-but I'm such a sucker for a handsome face!

The snow is so gorgeous, but yes....head on out to sunny CA for a cocktail with me! (Rains and cold weather are supposedly on the way, but our weather guys are always wrong. Think they put the really good weather peeps where there's weather! Ha!)
