Posts about Roxie
Back in November, Ana got her very own photoshoot!
We are all so surprised that she is still in rescue. Like I said before, she is perfect. But we think the fact that she’s under 100 pounds is turning people off. It kind of makes sense, when you consider the target audience (the online marketer in me is leaking). When people are looking for a Great Dane rescue, they are looking to adopt a Great Dane, which is normally a giant dog over 100 pounds. I’ve decided to take her to a lot more dog events with a vest on that says “Adopt Me!” to market her to the general population.
My current goal in life is to get as much exposure to gentle giants as possible. Not just for education reasons, but also because OMFG I LOVE THEM WHY DON’T I KNOW ANYONE WHO OWNS ONE?
Does your dog get his jollies when he rips apart stuff animals? Roxie definitely does. But stuffed animals are annoying to restuff and, depending how often you do it, expensive to replace.
Here it is: get a Hol-ee Roller and stuff it with strips of fabric! It’s freakin’ brilliant!

Obedience training is very important. It takes a lot of time, effort, and dedication. Unfortunately, not many people understand that and if they do, they may not have time for obedience training. To really get control over your dog, you need to spend dedicated time with them to establish good behaviors and break bad habits.
As I mentioned before, one of my goals is to get Roxie more trained before we get our gentle giants. She has a couple of bad habits that I don’t want her passing down to her little siblings.
Unfortunately, I’ve been a little busy with other areas of my life and have neglected to begin a obedience training regimen with Roxie. By “obedience training regimen”, I mean regularly spending a dedicated amount of time to focus on her training. But until I have more time to dedicate to her training, I’ve come up with an idea.

I like Wordless Wednesday because it gives me a chance to post pictures without having to write anything.
