May 16, 2016 – Denali, Guardian of the Flock

May 16, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Denali:  “Yeah mama, I’ve got this guardian thing down. Chickens…check!  Keeping Diva out of the chicken poop…check!  Making sure Supra does not eat the chickens…check!  Snuggling with my boy when he gets home from school…check!  Life is good when you are a  Great Pyrenees. But I think it might be time for you to get the crops planted.  The garden boxes are looking a little empty. I am ready to guard the tomatoes too…just saying.”

April 28, 2016 – So Much Has Happened!

April 27, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Much has happened in the last 30 days since my last update.  Don’t worry, I am fine.  Well as fine as can be expected when one’s world is turned upside down!

First, this happened…

Ducati is gone forever!  My boy Casey got married and has taken his Ducati to live with him and his wife.  YAY!!!  He is happy, I am happy and all is right with the world.  He still comes to visit every time they come over. DSC_0063 DSC_0040

Life is good!  I am on the back of my throne, with no one left to bother me.  Expect for Supra, and he is no bother.  I don’t mind Supra the Wonder Dog.  He takes my boy Blake and senior diva hiking, and heaven knows I do not like to go hiking!  Thank you, Supra.

Then last Friday, my boys and senior diva were gone for an entire day.  A 20-hour road trip to Washington state.  You can read all about their adventures HERE.  When they came home, they had this…DSC_0090 DSC_0063 DSC_0262OH MY GOD!!!!  NOOOOO!DSC_0248

I did NOT authorize the acquisition of this tacky, floofy, polar bear rug, return it immediately!!!DSC_0062Someone, please make my crazy world stop spinning…I want to get off! DSC_0028-2Just when you think life is going according to plan…the plan changes.  di6eagReT

Everybody loves him, and he is even good with chickens.  *sigh*  I guess he is here to stay.DSC_0045 DSC_0058 DSC_0094-Edit“Hello, world!  My name is Denali, Dozer’s Legacy.  I am a 10-week-old, almost 19-pound, Great Pyrenees puppy.  Pleased to make your acquaintance!  My primary duty in life is to be ridiculously adorable and annoy they heck out of Miss Lilly.  Mission accomplished!  I will be a new regular guest on this blog.  Hmmm…should we change the name to Denali and the Diva?”DSC_0081-2DSC_0090-2No, just no.  I am still the star of this blog!  And the star of my boy’s world.  And that my dear, fluffy, obnoxious little polar bear…will never change!DSC_0103-Edit

March 28, 2016 – Happy Easter!

March 28, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Happy Easter!  I know, Easter was yesterday, but I am still recovering from the crazy that was Easter Sunday!

It started out quite lovely.  My boys and senior diva enjoyed their annual “Coloring of the Easter Eggs,” celebration.  DSC_0011-Edit DSC_0015-Edit DSC_0020 DSC_0029Why anyone would paint a perfectly delicious egg is beyond me, but they did come out looking rather cool.

Then we had family over.  I do have a lovely family.  DSC_0018My boy Casey and his lovely wife Brianna.  These are Ducati’s humans, and they have a tiny human on the way. DSC_0013-2My boy Garrett, and his lovely girlfriend Genevieve.  She is nice, she loves us doggies and that is very important around here.  However… DSC_0023-2…she brought her dog to my kingdom!  Oh, the horrors!  DSC_0046-EditThis is Snookie, the Boston Terrier.
snookieThere is only room for one female canine in my family, and I am it! I told Snookie that she was welcomed to visit every now and then, but she can not stay.  I mean really…I do not share my boys with anyone!

DSC_0039All in all, it was a delightful day.  Snookie left when Genevieve left, and all returned to normal.

I will enjoy my reign as queen of the kingdom until the end of days…or at least until April when this fluffy butt joins our pack.  However, Denali will be but a wee puppy.  He will learn to follow my rule.

March 24, 2016 – What About Us?

March 24, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Yesterday the world was celebrating their canine companions for #NationalPuppyDay.  And were we celebrated?  Oh nay, nay! Senior diva says we are no longer puppies.DSC_0006-EditIn a very rare moment of solidarity, Ducati and I put our puppy heads together and decided that today would be our day.  We shall call it #HappyNationalMyDogIsOldAsDirtButStillFabulousDay!DSC_0014-EditYes, we are senior canines…Ducati is 10 years old, and I am 6 years old…but we are still fabulous!!  🙂

Speaking of seniors…Happy Birthday to my boy Garrett.  He turned 28 years old.  My oldest boy Garrett, and my youngest boy Blake, my two favorite humans on the planet.Garrett032216-2In other news…puppies!denalisbrothers Denalihero

We have all been missing our friend Dozer so much since he left to travel over the rainbow bridge.  The house has not been the same without our gentle giant friend.  Senior diva found a Great Pyrenees puppy and has decided that we shall invite him to spend the rest of his forevers with us.  He is only 4 weeks old right now, so we won’t be bringing him home until next month.  He is pretty cute though!  We shall name him “Denali, Sweet Spirit of Dozer,” and he will be our forever squishy.

March 14, 2016 – In Loving Memory

March 14, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

A few weeks have passed since we lost our friendliest friend Dozer, but it feels like he is still here with us.  Dozer had such a sweet, gentle nature, and brought a warmth and joy to everyone he touched.

Today, my senior diva received some keepsakes she had ordered to remember our Dozer by.  Inside each of the keepsakes, she placed a bit of Dozer’s soft fur.  A lovely paw print for herself…DSC_0053-Edit…and a cool little chrome capsule for the boys, Garrett and Blake.  We also received a gift of this lovely dog puzzle, carved from wood.  It looks just like Dozer.DSC_0034-EditHe was an amazing canine friend, our Dozer, and we miss him very much.

In other news…my boy Garrett has been working on a YouTube channel for his photography.  Here is a recent quick edit he created of a very cool photo shot in Donnelly, Idaho.  Garrett takes multiple exposures in RAW format in order to capture every detail he sees through his lens, then combines the exposures in post-processing using Adobe Lightroom to produce his final, EPIC, result.CaptureMy humans really enjoy their photography!

Hope your day is going well, dog lovers.  Best wishes for an amazing week ahead.

March 7, 2016 – My Friend The Duck

March 7, 2016 – The Daily Diva…

Good hello dog lovers.

Did you see the sunrise this morning?  It was quite spectacular!DSC_0034-2This has been a nice, easy, quiet Monday.  I love it when that happens.

This evening I am watching the sunset from my favorite spot on the entry table, next to my favorite window, next to my favorite friend the wooden duck.DSC_0005-Edit-2His name is Woody.DSC_0004-Edit-2What else would one name a wooden duck?

“Crispy?”

“Sawdust?”

“Fallen Tree?”

“He Was Once A Mighty Oak?”

Nah…Woody it is. 🙂

Hope your Monday was delightful, dog lovers.
