In my last post I mentioned that I have a labradane (Labrador and Great Dane mix) named Ember. She’s almost 10 months old and has the funniest personality. Her eyes say a lot and she is generally very expressive.
She’s 1 of 10 puppies and is lucky because she gets to frequently see her siblings because each of my sister-in-law’s (3!) and my mother-in-law have one!
One of the reasons we chose Ember from the litter was the sass and personality she showed at a very young age. It hasn’t calmed down since she’s been home with us.
As I try to get back into writing, I think I’ll choose topics I enjoy. Ember is certainly one of them 🙂 My husband and I don’t have kids yet, so we talk about her like she is one. Haha. Hope you don’t mind!
I titled it what I did because I truly did yoga recently, and, well, she tried to help.
Please excuse my tummy. I’m a real human. I got a little love to share. Also working on my flexibility. Or lack of.
When I started my practice that morning she immediately began playing with me and so I turned on my phone taking a time lapse video. These were just funny screen shots I got.
This is her “why aren’t you sharing your food with me?” face. Her dane features really show here.
Now she’s trying to be sweet.
She really smiles! She’s a great camper and hiker! We got her her own pack so now she can carry her own water and food.
She is soo afraid of the vacuum that when it’s out of the closest she hides anywhere she can.. typically the tub if it’s open. I can usually count on her being there after I’ve vacuumed. But the lawn mower? Leaf blower? Weed whacker? Oh, those are her friends and she’ll happily chase or bark at them! I dunno what the vacuum ever did to her…
She’s a great traveler! We went on a two week road trip with my in-laws (we have our own remodeled cab over camper!) and she was soo good in the truck! She never whined or complained.
By the way, her grandmother was a pure bred AKC Great Dane that was “blue” aka gray. That’s where she got her coloring from.
She has green eyes 🙂
This is one of my favorite puppy pictures of her. She was so fluffy and cute! Now she’s just big and cute. She’s probably around 55-60 lbs now and she’ll grow a little bit more. Thankfully for us she’s not huge!
I never thought my husband would love an animal the way he loves her but if this is any indication of what he’ll be like when we have babies… He’s gonna be such a good daddy!
I’m especially thankful to have Ember when my hunny is working so many days straight. She keeps me company when I’m home alone and makes me feel safer.
Dogs really are a (wo)man’s best friend.
