Slim Down Sunday ~ Aug 22 - Aug 28

Still no Yoga or Zumba but it WAS a fairly active week. :-)

Monday, August 22nd

Tuesday, August 23rd
Happy Birthday to me! Haha. I treated myself to yummy albeit fattening Italian food but it was OHHHH so worth it. Haha.

Wednesday, August 24th

Thursday, August 25th

Friday, August 26th

Saturday, August 27th
Went to Dad's and helped clean for a couple hours. Sweeping, mopping, cleaning cabinets and counters. Up and down step ladder.

Sunday, August 28th
Went back to Dad's for some more cleaning. More sweeping and mopping, cleaning bathrooms and helping hang a door. After helping it Dad's, I came home and worked on McKayla's room and if anyone knows how a 7 year old room's can easily get trashed (especially when cousin had just spent the night), you'll understand what a "workout" that can be too. Not what I'd exactly call "exercise" but it beats sitting on my hiney. Haha

I'm hoping to go to Zumba next week. It may prove a little more difficult to go...not that I've been doing the greatest at going lightly, but now it'll be a tad more difficult.....coworker I was going with started college and has classes on Thursdays now, so, it'll have to be Friday Zumba. Some Friday's may be darn near impossible to make it, but I'm gonna try. :-)

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…

The Official Illustrated Standard of the Great Dane Club of America, INC. 1945
(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.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAWN TO FAWN OR BRINDLE ONLY
Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
