Remembering Daytona..........

It was yesterday four years ago that we had to say our final good bye to the most handsome great dane of all times, Daytona. (A.k.a. Lonie, Lonelone, Tony the Pony to name a few) Daytona was very special and very loved. When he was diagnosed with Dilated Cardio Myopathy at age 7 1/2 we were heartbroken. He will never be forgotten and I will post a few pictures of him to keep his memory alive:
Here he meets little Megan at a horse show. She insisted that he was a "horsey".

He also was a wonderful therapy dog and received the Shawna Award from Fairfax Pets on Wheels.

He also was a successful showdog, even though he sometimes lacked the enthusiasm to run around in pointless circles.
His pedigreed name was CH M&M's Harley D's Daytona

Wasn't he the handsomest ever ?
We miss you, Lonelone !

Happy Howl-o-Ween !

I know - it's been eons since the last blog post, but we had a really busy month with lots of stuff to do around the house. At least now the garage doesn't turn into a riverbed any more every time it rains. Highly recommend B-Dry of Washington. They're fast, they're clean, they're curtious and beat Mid Atlantic Waterproofing by a wide margin. (Those guys were so annoying !)

Anyways. We love our house, even though we bitch and complain about it occasionally. It's our home and we're proud of it.

Halloween is upon us today and since we don't want to put up with barking dogs every time someone knocks on the door, we will leave a treat basket outside and trick-or-treat ourselves to dinner.

Happy Howl-o-Ween !
