Lucy is a Cougar

So every time we take Lucy and Kona to the dog park, Lucy always gets a lot of male dog attention.  She is a beautiful Great Dane but she was fixed years ago so I am not 100 percent sure why that is. 

This last time was no difference.  This time it was a big burly Blue Great Dane that thought Lucy was pretty awesome.  Well Lucy was not having it, not even a little bit.  She tried to put him in his place pretty quick.  She never actually bit him but she can get pretty aggressive when she wants.  She up leaping around, body slamming him like I haven't seen her in years.  Pretty tough girl for being a senior Great Dane.  Needless to say I am not sure that big knucklehead got the drift.  I had to break it up before she bit him, which I think she was about to do.  But, you know he kind of deserved it....

Kona and a Boston Terrier Play Fighting

Actually it is the Bsoton Terrier Playing with Kona.  She is such a good sport about smaller dogs playing with her.  She does not tolerate aggressive dogs and neither does Lucy.

Lucy The Farting Dog

Well we had to take Lucy into the vet to get her teeth cleaned, she really needed it and we did not want to put it off, but they had to knock her out to do it. 

We got her home and she was pretty groggy even the next day and she quickly got back to normal but one thing was that it messed up her digestive system for a couple of days.  The night after we got her back from the vet, she was snoring away and simply just laying the most noxiou gas I have ever smelt.  I had to get up a couple of times because I could not stand it.   Pretty much, could have bottled it up and sold it as tear gas, it was that bad. 

She is back to normal know but whew!!, it was a stinky couple of days.

Isn't Honey beautiful? She is looks like a pretty happy and silly girl too.

Lucy Got Her Nails Trimmed Today

Well today we got Lucy's nails trimmed. They are too long and thick for us to do it at home so we go to the local Petsmart and they do it in their grooming section.

Lucy is not a big fan of doing it and makes every attempt to escape everytime we do. She is much better when I am right there.

I remember one time I dropped her off at the vet and the two youngish women very confidently told me that they had it all under control. On my way out I glanced back and the two young ladies are being dragged across the floor by Lucy. Lucy of course was really scared and when she is like that she drops little presents along the way. So needless to say I went aback to help out to get her where she needed to be. A roll of paper towels later everything was back to normal.

Okay back to the present, well the young ladies there at Petsmart also said confidently that they had her all under control. LOL. It was like history repeating itself. Lucy to say the least was not very cooperative and she was able to evade capture for alittle while. I let it go on for a bit, just because. LOL.

Well we eventually agreed that we would do it in the waiting area with me having a firm grip on Lucy. It calms her down and I am a pretty big fellow and able to keep her pretty much still. It was quite a workout though and by the end we had a small crowd of spectators, comprised of both humans and dogs. This little dachshund was especially interested and came up to Lucy and sniffed at her quite a bit. I think he was checking to make sure she was okay.

We really like dachshunds. Really brave and loyal dogs.

We are off to the dog park to work off some energy and say hey to all of the other dogs in the area.

All the best,

Lucy is Dreamng Right Now

So, here I am working on the store and Lucy is asleep right next to me on her dog bed. She is so funny, she must be dreaming of something that she likes because she is wagging her tail in her sleep.

I have seen dogs twitch their feet before but never wag their tail.

She does it from time to time and it always makes me happy because I am thinking that she is happily dreaming about something.

Adopt A Ball Dog Toy

So we have been really working on the store lately, adding lots of products to the store, working on marketing, etc... It has been a lot of work but it will be worth it in the end.

Here is one of the great new products that we recently bought for the store. It is pretty cool and a great way to spread a really valuable message.

Adopt A Ball

Lucy is a rescue, so we are big fans of rescues, humane societies and the like that work the majority of the adoptions out there.

If you do stop by the store and decide to buy remember to use the coupon code: friend. It will give you 15% off your entire purchase.

Bullvie The Great Dane

This is Bullvie the Great Dane. Isn't she a beautiful Great Dane. We love Great Danes.

Her owner just ordered her some saddle bags from our store He uses them so that Bullvie can carry her own food and water to their camp site. She likes to have them as they do not chaff or rub and she feels good about helping out. Dogs need a job, they like having a job and Great Danes really enjoy making their humans happy.

Well anyway, I hope you enjoy the picture.

Check out our dog saddle bags

Big Shrimpy Dog Beds

Here are the girls on Lucy's Big Shrimpy Original Dog Bed. She loves it and spends a lot of time on it. We really like Big Shrimpy because they offer some really large sizes and they are very well made. Lucy has been doing a test of this bed for the last six months and everything is working out great. We think she likes it because the Big Shrimpy Dog Beds are really thick and have a lot of padding.
We decided to start selling the Big Shrimpy Dog Beds in because we are a big fan of the product. Big Shrimpy Dog Beds
, they are a great dog beds. As with all orders it is free shipping for all orders above $100 and just $4.99 for orders under $100.

It Is Hot Outside

It is really hot outside. We were in the low hundreds today.

We stayed inside most of the day but went to the dog park early on. Here is a good picture of Lucy and Kona taking a quick swim in the river at the dog park in Shirleyton, VA. Well Lucy is watching Kona take a swim. Most of the time Kona forgets she is a Labrador Retriever and thinks she is human being, but not today. It is good to see the dog in her come out.


Here is another picture from the vacation. This is from Crater Lake in Central Oregon. They have chipmunks there that are very used to being feed by humans. They are not very afraid at all of coming right up to you. We even saw some chipmunks eat right out of people's hands.
We are on the a dock on an island in the middle of Crater Lake. It is the purest water I have ver seen. If you ever get a chance to go, do it, you will not regret it.

Back From Vacation

Michelle and I just recently got back from our vacation to Central Oregon. Michelle and I are both avid hikers and this one of the great water falls we happened upon while we were gone.
Michelle is really getting into nature photography and getting pretty good at it.
Lucy and Kona stayed in a dog boarding facility while were gone. They seemed to really enjoy it and actually acted a little wierd when they came home. It took them a couple of days getting used to being back home.
I think it was partly because of the great care they got at The employees there are awesome and you could really tell that they love dogs. If you live in the greater DC area, specifically in the Arlington or Alexandria, check them out.

This is an older picture of Koan and Lucy in their old backyard down in Houston. Lucy is getting on the older side for a dane, she is 6 but you would never know it by the way she runs around our new backyard.

Here is a picture of the Cherry Blossoms in Washington D.C. We moved here a few months ago and have finally gotten settled in. Lucy and Kona love it here. We have a dog park within walking distance from us. It is pretty cool because a river runs right by the dog park and you can take your dogs down there. Kona, our lab, loves going so she can go for a swim. Lucy loves to go because she finds all sorts of unsuspecting people to pet her. She literally pinned a dude down last time we went and would not let him stop petting her. She is such a nut.
We went to the Taste of Arlington and thoguht it would be a good idea to walk around with the dogs. It was not because there were so many people. So we sat on the sidelines with the dogs and Lucy and Kona made all sorts of new friends. My wife Michelle would go out and get the food and beer from the big block party that was the Taste of Arlington and the girls and I sat waiting for her to come back. Man I should have charged admission, we had so many people come by and want to pet Lucy and Kona. Mostly Lucy, which I think has given poor little Kona a complex. She is like that little kid, going me too, me too. (Kona gets so much attention at home) Having Lucy there was good for publicity for the breed though. Everyone loved her and she got almost as much attention as she can handle, which is saying a lot.

Thursday, June 17, 2010

Lucy's Back

Hi everyone,

It ihas been a while since we have posted. We just got finished with a move to Arlington, VA and everyone is getting settled in to their new digs.

Lucy and Kona really love this place. They have a dog park, The Shirleyton Dog Park within walking distance of our house and they love it. A stream runs by the dog park so you can go down to the dog park and hang out in the stream on hot days. Both Lucy and Kona love hanging out in the water. Lucy usually can be seen soliciting other dog owners for affection. You would think she gets no love at home. Kona on the other hand can be seen swimming around trying to get everyone else's toys.

Traveling To Washington DC

Okay, this might not be the samrtest thing I have ever done, but I am headed to DC today only a couple of days after the most massive snowstorm to hit the area in decades.

what makes it extra special is there is another snowstorm coming in later this week which is likely to drop another foot of snow. Pretty sweet. I am hoping that I get in and then I am hoping the Metro is working as that is my way to where I am staying. I am keeping my fingers crossed. We shall see.

Lucy and Kona always know when I am headed out for a business trip. It might be my inagination but they seem like they get sad. I think they get sad and they go to their beds and sulk. I play with them a bit more than my girlfriend, I mean wife(still hard to stop calling her my girlfriend, we have been married for three days).

Dane Day At the Dog Park

We took Lucy and Kona to the dog park today. It was still pretty muddy and of course Lucy and Kona decided they wanted to splash around in almost every mud puddle there. Kona makes it especially fun because she likes to jump on me after. She is not really a jumpy dog, I think she just likes to share the mud. LOL.

What made today unusaul at the dog park was the amount of Great Danes there. There was at least eight which is the most I have seen at one time any time we have gone to the dog park. They were all different colors and all beautiful. Lucy had a good time interecting with all of of the danes. She really likes being around other danes, I am not sure why, but she does. She was a rescue so she spent a lot of time at the rescue with other danes. Maybe that is it? Kona on the other hand has no affection what so ever for other labs. They are just another dog for her.

Lucy always manages to attract male dogs. I am not sure why since she was spade for years. Today was kond of funny because it was a young english bulldog. He would not leave her alone. He was trying as hard as he could to get high enough but physics really got in the way. He certainly had a lot of heart though.

Kona and the Doberman.

Kona, my little 55 lb english lab is a real sweet little dog. She is very affectionate and definately a girly dog. Does not like to go outside too much and really likes to lounge around.

There are some exceptions. We took her and Lucy to the dog park a couple of days ago. One of the things I do when at the dog park is take them on laps around this huge dog park. It is good exercise for them and good exercise for me. Well on our first trip around I saw these two dobermans. They were about medium size for a dobbie so they were quite a bit taller than Kona. One of the dobermans went after Kona with bared teeth and a growl, which is kond of unusual as we very rarely see a lot of aggression from any of the dogs at the dog park. Well everyone got a surprise from Kona. Instead of backing down like I thought she would she went after the dobbie with a lot more aggression than I have seen from Kona ever before. No one got bit but the dobbie tucked it's tail between it's legs and ran off with Kona in pursuit. I called her off pretty quick.

The next time around the park Kona went after the dobbie again but i called her off before she got more than a foot or two.

It was pretty interesting to see her go after a bigger dog like that. Maybe she was feeling pretty confident because Lucy and I were right there. In the past when Kona has gotten into trouble with another dog Lucy comes right over and gives a growl and that pretty much ends the trouble. I have been known to growl too. LOL.

Sneaky Lucy

So today started out pretty well. That was until we left Lucy outside for a little too long. You would think she was some sort of scent hound by the way she acts. She found another pile of something smelly and decided that she wanted to roll around in it for a while. I thought it was just on her back and stomach so that is the only placed I washed. Oh no, it was all over her neck and paws and lots of other places. As a result Lucy and I have both had four partial baths today.

You should have seen the look on her face as I was washing her. She does not like taking baths outside. I should have gotten a picture but I had my hands full with a stinky great dane.

She is six now. She still seems like a child to me but with all of the grey hair on her muzzle it seems like she is pretty old.
