Furry Friday ~ Camping With Rio

In order to try and minimize the plethora of photos in my Fall Creek Falls Adventure posts and b/c I needed photos for Furry Friday, I figured I'd just save Rio's pictures for today. ☺ Some may be duplicates, but that's ok, I know you don't mind. :-D

First up is the VERY uncomfortable looking position that he put himself in when we were first leaving. When he had half of the back seat to lay on, comfortably. I'm not sure why he choose to lay THIS way.

This was our first stop after setting up camp the first day.

Then we went to the playground for McKayla to play a bit. Most of these next pictures are of Rio watching his girl play.

Then we had our cold night of camping and waking up to a shivering Rio, who was then covered with several blankets.

Then we have proof that he DOES in fact, know how to lay on the backseat correctly. LOL

Then we have pictures from our walk to the Fall Creek Falls overlook and the hike around.

Now we have proof that my big, strong, boy is in fact a wuss. We were at the playground on our last day and we'd been hiking and walking all day. We'd decided to have a picnic and couldn't get Rio to relax and lay down. He kept trying to get up on top of the picnic table and would look miserable just standing. John tried to get him to lay down but he'd only sit for a few minutes and then get back up. So, I asked John to get Rio's blanket out of the car. And wouldn't you know, that as SOON as I laid that blanket down, Rio immediately laid down on it and actually sighed LOL Wussy dog.

Now we have two pooped pups. Rio actually laying in the seat right again, and McKayla, dangerously, using Rio's butt as a pillow. ☺

Last Rio picture from our camping adventure. These two turkey's were, in fact, looking directly ahead at me, that is until I picked up my phone to take their picture. THEN they both decided to look away. Brats. Both of them. LOL


  1. LOL that last picture is priceless!! I love all of the photos. Rio is so handsome!

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
