I’ve done it again…forgot all about this blog lol. Well what can I say about my boy, who’s fast becoming a man? He’s still my pride and joy, still makes life worth living, still puts a smile on my face when it’s hard to find a reason to smile. We are enjoying the warm weather, going to the park, walking the trails that we love so much, well except for the bugs that is. 🙂 He met his first deer the other day while on our way home from those trails. It was so amazing, how they stood so close to one another, neither moving, until after about five minutes my boy decided he just had to play with this new found friend of his, and the deer took off back into the trees lol. He also met his first ground hog, down at Grampy’s ((they live under his shed apparently)) but I’m afraid Mamma wouldn’t allow him to play with them either. Nasty little buggers they are! 🙂
In other news, I’ve been searching for other dane owners in my city, and have found 8 so far. I opened up a facebook group for us to keep in contact, and we’ve been planning a big Great Dane meetup this summer. We’re having smaller ones when the weather allows. Tommorow hopefully, Luke will be meeting 3 danes when we meet at the trails mentioned earlier.
One more month…and Luke is ONE! I can hardly believe how fast time has flown. He’s grown up on me so fast…he’s so tall and looking more “manly” every day now. He’s still a giant love bug. Has to sleep in the bed with me, cuddle on the couch with me while we watch tv or movies together. He’s still my shadow, everywhere one goes, the other is there. People who see us together still marvel at the fact we communicate with one another as if we speak the same language. I suppose you could say that Luke and I have our own language. 🙂 I know this boy, I know what he wants just by the look on his face, the tone of his “voice”. And I will admit, nine times out of ten? He will get it lol. He loves everything he meets, and just wants them to be his friend. Right down to butterflies and the two crows who visit here every morning for their breakfast.
We are in the process now of finding a new place to live, so I may end up being offline for a month or two, but I will definitely be back to share anything we’ve missed during that time.
So here are some pics taken since my last blog entry. They are not in order of time, but I hope you enjoy them.
These were taken at the Memorial Park we visit often:
Here he is playing with his new friend Max, a 7 month old dane
These are pictures taken from a trip to the trails we love
Here he is with his “doggy” ((the one he stole from the neighors every chance he got until they finally gave in and let him keep it lol))
These are the ones taken the day he saw the deer :)]
Hey Deer! Come back here! I wanna play with you!
