What's been happening with the zoo?

Well, with the dogs, not much! Life for me, however, has been stressful and chaotic. Hence, not much blogtime lately. I miss updating the blog and visiting all of our blog buddies, so I hope to make the rounds soon and catch up with everyone!

Kai still loves his Kuranda bed! Just look at those lips....dontcha just wanna smoosh them? ;)

The LWT is growing like a weed!!! Can you believe that she's already 82 pounds? Yep....not such a baby anymore, even though she's only 5.5 months old! She just finished her first puppy class and is waiting on a novice class so she can continue to work on her manners!

And does it get much sweeter than these two?? They make me smile every single day. And I've been really needing that lately.........

Happy 1st Birthday Willow

Thanks for the wonderful birthday card from "Snarfy" on Big Dogs Porch forum where I'm a member.

The past year has flown by with Willow! She's now a little over 35" at the shoulders and is 128 pounds. She's thriving on her (half) raw diet and still has a very sweet and gentle disposition. She is now "crate free" and sleeps in the laundry room when we're away from the house. Otherwise she always has free roam in the house. We're still working on the counter surfing but she's getting better. She's never had an accident in the house since she was 10 weeks old......the girl is much easier than Kai ever was!!

Here's to many more years together, big girl. We all love you!!!!!!

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!
