Update!

hi all, just a quick update!!

Brittany says I have come out of the naughty teenager stage- She says that is a relief 😉 I’ve been learning a bit more about manners and basic things instead of focusing on tricks nowadays – I’ve finally got my heeling down pat, and I’ve stopped pulling on the lead! Brittany was very proud of me. We’ve been working on polishing off my training in preparation for a big event – But we’ll tell you more about that when the time comes! Its very exciting news!

Brittany has been working on NaNoWriMo at the moment, and she is really enjoying it. for more information about NaNo- http://www.nanowrimo.org/

Here are some recent photos!

Kangadane? 😉

Watching over my domain

Thats all for now- it has to be a short one, Brittany has a book to write so she can’t help me with the blog much, But I’ll chew her shoes until she does!

Swimming, modelling and new tricks! (Part 1)

Hi everydoggie!

I had a lot of fun on my birthday. Brittany and her parents took me to a new place to swim, here are a few pictures!

I had a lot of fun swimming

Brittany was really pleased with my action shot modelling!

A peaceful moment..

And back to playing!

Brittany reckons I look like a horse!

I loved playing with this stick

😀

Brittany thought I was weird to sit in the water... But when I'm told to sit, I sit!

I liked splashing through the water on the shore best!

I swum a little bit...

LOOK OUT, I'M COMING!

I saw a fish!

Woooooo!

This was where it began to get deep...

I almost look like I'm running on water! 😉

The sunset was very nice! Brittany made me pose.

I will have to finish this blog post soon. I have had some issues loading the photos from today- Brittany got some really nice ones.

For now, I will leave you with this video from tonight- the outcome of my first training session of ‘Speak’!

(haven’t a clue how to embed videos, sorry)

Until next time,

Lacey the Great Dane

 

I’m baaaaaaack!

Hi Everybody!

Sorry for being out of action for so long, my human has been quite busy. But she has things sorted and now I’m back and ready to blog away for you all!

I’ve got some big news… It is my very first birthday tomorrow! Yes, that’s right, on the first of October, I am one year old. Brittany is busy in the morning, but in the afternoon she’s taking me for a surprise!

The bad thing… She says I have to have a bath this afternoon. Apparently she says I can’t be ‘stinky’ (hmph!) for my birthday. What would she know! She needs to learn the joys of doggy perfume, like Eau de Dead Mouse and Horse Poop! Bah!

I have to be honest, I don’t really mind much when I get a bath.The shampoo Brittany uses smells yummy. It smells like Mangoes and Coconuts, it’s not that bad. And especially on a hot afternoon, I have to admit the cool water is nice. It’s all over very quickly. Brittany says it is because of my ‘wash and wear’ coat. It probably takes only about five minutes to bath me, and then I get to play and do zoomies! Brittany is always amazed at how quick it is to wash me. Her last dog, Bella, was a shih tzu cross with a long and curly coat, and she says it would always take ages to wash the ‘stinkbug’ out of her coat! Just another of the benefits of having a Great Dane! 😉

Speaking of benefits of Great Danes, We had a scary situation last night. I noticed something outside at about 12 at night and started barking and growling! So Brittany and Mum ran out to the lounge, and let me outside to investigate. Brittany doesn’t know what I was barking at, but she saw me chasing something away from the house. It freaked my humans out!

Brittany called me a very good girl and I got a lot of praise. She said she was very glad for my big deep bark, it would frighten anyone away! She says I looked very intimidating and tough, even though she says I would probably end up licking them to death 😛 She doesn’t think anybody would try to test it out though! 😉

Here are some recent photos for you all. I have definitely grown since our doggie dancing routine! 😉

Hanging out with Brittany on Mums bed!

I am a very mature and dignified almost-1-year old!

Three months old...

Same chair... At eleven months old!

Okay, Brittany is calling me to go have my bath so I will tell you all about my birthday soon!

Until next time,

Lacey 😀

 

A note from Brittany- Hi all! I am so sorry for disappearing for so long- I was busy and needed a break from things for a while. But we’re back and will be blogging regularly again. I’m looking forward to hearing all about what you’ve all been doing and I hope to gather some new friends along the way too! I’m very excited for Lacey’s first birthday and I will be giving her a surprise tomorrow. It’s the first time I’ve celebrated a pets birthday and I think it is very deserved, she’s my baby! Anyway, Toodle Pip! 🙂

Pretty pictures… LOTS of pretty pictures.

Brittany here 😀

I got a new camera for my birthday from my boyfriend, before my birthday because he’s soft and I’m annoying 😉

Just a warning… I have to put in a caption for every photo, otherwise it goes all wonky when I’m editing… so expect lots of smilies! Not like thats a bad thing anyway… A smile can always brighten your day, forced or not 🙂

I've got a bunch of shots like this 🙂

A note from Brittany

Hi all

Sorry I haven’t been blogging much lately, I’ve been taking a break ^.^

I’ve seen some comments saying that you are having trouble leaving comments recently. I would try to fix it… except I don’t know whats wrong or how to fix it. Sorry! I’m pretty useless when it comes to this computer/website thing. If anyone has tips, please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated!

I’m just starting home schooling this week, so I’m going to be really busy as I slowly settle into the routine and learning how it all works. I’ll be back and blogging soon hopefully! I don’t know when though :\

Harrington is doing really well at the moment, he’s having lots of fun playing with Juliet our little Arab filly. I’ll have some new pictures soon hopefully.

Until next time,

Brittany 🙂

We got a new baby!

Yes, we have a new little addition pop his head out into the big wide world yesterday morning. He is small and very very cute.

 

Is it a bird? No. Is it a cat? Nope. Is it a new little baby person? No way.

Its a new baby cow!

Brittany named him Harrington! We call him Harry and it goes with Ginny, his mothers name 😉

Harrington and Ginny

 

Isn’t he just so small and adorable?!

Until next time,

Lacey the Great Dane
