{17feb2011: reunion party part 3}

We're almost to the end!  If you missed Darwin's birthday party/family reunion part 1 or part 2 check out the first half of the fun!

After hanging out by the water we moved back towards the middle of the park for some running time.
We passed by our other Dane friends, like Bettis and his little sister Rooney, whom Darwin had to chase.

While Darwin tried to steal Boo's monkey, Porky tried to steal Darwin's attention.
Darwin was not happy about it.
{when a girl says no she means no!}
Soon Boo and his monkey became the center of attention. (5 out of the 8 blues pictured are littermates)
Boo got distracted by Misha and Kona tried to make off with the monkey.
But he didn't act fast enough and Boo held onto his now footless toy.
At some point Darwin took possession of the monkey, and was so thrilled as her most favorite thing to do is steal other dogs toys and have them chase her.
{neener neener neener... I got the monkey!}
When Boo finally got a hold of his monkey he and Olive joined in for a three way tug match.
Boo is not afraid to show off his feminine side with his pretty pink flamingo charm.
Darwin got a short break from Porky's affection while he took interest in their smallest sister Sydney.
While Darwin was free she went back to a game of tug with Boo... that poor monkey.
Porky's a persistent guy and came back to see if Darwin changed her mind about him yet.

She didn't.
Bella and her family were taking off so we managed to get a group shot of all the siblings.
(Boo, Bella, Darwin, Sydney, Porky and Kona)
Here's some video of the action too!

***Stumpy wanted the pupcake recipe... You can find it at this old post.  I just made cupcakes rather than a sheet cake.  And I topped it with these cookies.  


  1. Yipeeee!!! Video!!! I was hoping for some. that poor monkey, it did hold up pretty well, all things considered!

    I think Darwin must have had the party of the year. It's wonderful to see all those Danes and not one set of cropped ears! Love it!

    Stumpy's birthday is coming up and I know the pupcakes will be a hit! Thanks!

    Waggin' at you!

  3. There seems to have been an awful lot of romping going on!


  4. Darwin, good on you for stealing the toy! It is the best fun isn't it!
    I am also very glad you told that Porky where to go with his attentions. Some dogs have only one thing on their mind you know!

    your pal,

  5. Ha! Ha! I think I can hear that poor monkey screaming! :-)

    Poor Boo! Everyone was ganging up on him! He did look like he was enjoying the attention though!

  6. Look at all those blue Great Danes!

    I(jasper) was realling enjoying the video, I had my nose as close to the tv as possible and was cocking my head to the side trying really hard to concentrate!

    Licks and lots of slobber,
    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

  7. So cute! I think you have inspired my mom to try and arrange a reunion for my doggie family. They look like they all had a blast!
