2 Years Young

I can’t believe that she is two years old already.  Time is just flying by.  She got a huge, delicious dino bone to celebrate.

Anticipation

You can get a perspective on just how huge the bone is when you see it beside her giant 97lb body.  One end is the same size as her head.  She can barely carry it in her mouth.

Spoiled, Shiny and Clean

1YRSpiritBone1

Since we were away on Sunday when Spirit actually celebrated her first birthday we had some “spoiling and loving” to catch up on.  First she got a big frozen sardine to wet her appetite.  Then came the real treat…..a giant knuckle bone.  She spent over a hour lying in the snow enjoying her present.

Then we took her to the dog wash.  We now have an even more beautiful and shiny girl.  She is so fluffy that she looks like she put on 25 lbs.

Snow Bunny

Well, I can’t believe it but my big girl is celebrating her first birthday.  Wow time just flies by so quickly.  We’ve also had our first snowfall of the season.  Only one individual in our household is thrilled with the white stuff.  Guess who?

She’s Maturing

11Months

Today Spirit is 11 months old (weights 85 lbs) and just finishing up her first heat.  I knew it would be a challenge with two intact dogs in the house but I was still overwhelmed by Wally’s response to her.  My old boy will be 15 in April but he still has his “mojo” firmly in place.  I think it put a bit of a twinkle in his eyes and a spark in his step.

9 Months and Counting

9MonthsTo help Spirit celebrate her big day we gave her her first knuckle bone. To say that it was a hit would be a big understatement. She LOVED it!! It kept her busy for a couple of hours. Every time I walked by her she had this look on her face that clearly said “please don’t take this away from me…pretty please!” I did take it from her several times to make sure she wouldn’t resource guard it. She now weighs 34.6 kg or 76.2 lbs.
