Happy 2nd Birthday!

Roseland Bianca Coppola (Dane) and "Buddy" (indeterminate mix) both turned 2 years old this week. Naturally, we had a party!

Why did you put this on my head?

I wear this hat under protest.

Some chaotic wrangling...

They are really very, very good dogs.

I got flowers at work just for being me!

Notice the curious snout in the background...

Winter Fun With Unkee Dunkee!

Bianca and Buddy play with best friend Duncan the Mastiff.

Duncan (brown dog, left) had a fleeting notion that he was going to jump up on the hay bale. Then he remembered he weighed 175 pounds and had bad hips.

Winter fun

Bianca and Buddy like to go for walks in the farmer's field and play on/around the hay bales.

Ha! You can't get me!

Hi-yaaaa! I chase you!

Notice the foal blanket on Bianca. A Dane is a big dog.

Yeah, that's me looking like a doofus in the red hat. It's about a half mile walk to the field, then another quarter or so uphill to go somewhere isolated enough I'm comfortable letting them run. (Bianca believes a strong offense is the best defense, where strange people/dogs/sounds/sights/smells/etc are concerned)
