• and now we need a great dane.

    My friend, Katie, snapped this photo of C and Cooper the Blue Great Dane of My Dreams at last night’s Yappy Hour; mostly for photographic evidence of the significant size difference of their craniums. If there was a competition for giantest of heads, Coop would take the trophy and all the glory.

    {I live for puppy yawns.} Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend had it all wrong. Her dog totally is. Chad snapped these shots of Doak and me last night when I got home from work. I was in a foul mood all day. Cantankerous. A grumpalous, as my dad would say. I don’t
