Giant Puppy and Her Rock

Giant Puppy and Her Rock

Giant Puppy and Her Rock. Giant Puppy LOVES to dig GIANT HOLES all over Weber Wonderland. And since we live out in the country and have enough land, her giant holes are just fine with us. Lately, she’s been digging out rocks that she finds and…

Puppy Playtime

Does anyone else have a pair of puppies (2-3 years old, not really puppies anymore but they will always be puppies to me) who prefer to play together when one of their parents gets down on the floor with them? I would guesstimate 9/10 times our…

Snowy Days

Snowy Days. The local weather people reported from SNOWY SPRINGVILLE yesterday…Happy Birthday ME! This was what Weber Wonderland looked like on Monday, feet of snow melted down to a thick sheet of ice everywhere. This is what it looks like, again, today. HWMMS *might* have been…

Weber Animal Christmas

Weber Animal Christmas. The stockings were hung on the stairway with care, because if on the fireplace they wouldn’t still be there… Jordan and Harley went through their new stuffed ducks in about 27 minutes. Sigh. The GIANT FEMUR BONES will last much longer. Although Harley…

Matching Pets

Medium Puppy

Medium Puppy

Medium Puppy gets around (quite quickly I might add and faster than Giant Puppy) by a run/hop combo because of his front leg birth defect. There is NOTHING IN THE WORLD CUTER than seeing that silly happy face hopping around with his little boxer ears flapping…

Jordan’s DNA Test Results

Jordan’s DNA Test Results When we adopted Jordan (Giant Puppy) the best guess from the rescue said was she was a Plott Hound/Great Dane mix. Today, we found out the results from her Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed DNA Test Kit And? Well, darn close right? Bluetick…

Giant Puppy is Ridiculous

Giant Puppy is Ridiculous. HWMMS is in the process of painting the living room so the GIANT bean bag chair ended up on the GIANT round chair. Next logical step? Add Giant Puppy. Save Save

Giant Puppy and the Spitoon

Find an antique spitoon. Put popcorn in the bottom of the spitoon. Laugh as you watch Giant Puppy hit the spitoon over and over trying to make the kernels fall out. Laugh harder when Giant Puppy sticks her head inside and barks and then barks again…

Jordan Reindeer

I can’t believe Giant Puppy waited long enough for me to take a photo with this silly headband on her head… The one trainer at her Manners and More obedience class called her MOOSE the other day. Adorbs. Save

Giant Puppy Redecorates

Manners and More

Giant Puppy Learns Manners and More! Last Night was Jordan’s first week of puppy training. The Barking Lot of WNY came highly recommended to us from my brother and SIL and Jordan’s foster family so it was a no-brainer for us to choose them. We are…

Henri the Doggie is DEFINITELY Not Genetically Related To Me. Ok, disregard the ridiculous idea that a dog would be genetically related to me in the first place. Good. Now see what I mean. Today? High 976 degrees? Give or take? Henri the Doggie decided to…
