Happy (Belated) Birthday, Big Guy!

Kai celebrated his 8th birthday on January 27th. I've been without a computer for almost 2 weeks now and thanks to Cookie and Crew's mom, I have a laptop til mine is returned from the shop. But as a result, I'm behind in posting and visiting blogs.......story of my life!!

Doesn't he look so distinguished? Although 8 doesn't sound old to most, for a giant breed, that's "getting up there in age." And setting that aside, it's amazing for Kai because of his health problems that he's beat the odds the vet gave him 2.5 years ago! He's such a fighter and the epitome of a Gentle Giant!!

He was trying so hard to get the Frosty Paws out of the container but there is a serious size mismatch going on! are out of order.... :) He's waiting so patiently, just like he does for everything. He's not a "grabber" and is always this patient!

I love this boy more than I could ever put into words. I'm so excited that he's hung on this long and I pray that we have many more days with him!

We all love you,'re the most awesome guy!

WOOO Happy Belated Birthday! hey, we just got back from Petsmart and ran into a Great Dane who looked just like you. AND in my obedience class, there is a Great Dane "puppy", HA ROO! He is really nice and fun to play with. I think I remember his name being Rocket, but there were so many pups there that I can't really remember.
Puppy Woos,

Very Distinguished gentleman even while eating frosty paws out of a comically small cup. Moose goes nuts for that stuff but we have not had it for awhile since he is watching his figure during rehab. Glad he had a happy B-day. Such a good boy!
