Love the Vegas close up
We finally got a sunny day...and on the weekend! Vegas was kinda antsy this morning. Going in and out all day long. We have a nice privacy fence, but Vegas and Orion have not been able to be out in the backyard without a leash. Our neighbors have a German Shepard that they leave out all the time. I've asked them twice to figure out another solution. The dog starts barking at 5am and he keeps going throughout the day. He charges the fence whenever we go into our backyard and he barks each time our dogs go out to potty. Once the GS starts barking, Orion barks back. She will run to the end of the fence and she goes nuts. She's even fallen behind the railroad ties. Their solution? They put a shock collar on the GS. So he would still bark...but also start screaming. Our solution? We only let them outside on a leash. This has been an every day thing for the last 5 to 6 months. Every since last weekend, we haven't heard their dog outside. Finally today, Vegas and Orion got to spend some time off-leash in their own backyard. It was a beautiful day out. All Vegas wanted to do was sit against the fence facing the sun. He really tried. But the little spot where he likes to sit is currently a mud puddle. He still tried to sit in it. I managed to convince him there was a another way. I pulled out some of the patio furniture and grabbed cushions out of storage. He climbed right up. Orion tried to climb onto the chair with him, but it's a one dog chair. So I repeated the process for Orion.
I even managed to snap a few photos.
Love the Vegas close up
awwww look at them taking in the sun! the pics! love how you got them out their very own chairs. i know my boy wanted to hang outside longer as it was warmer here but we will have a few inches of snow left.
oh oh oh oh I love Vegas and O. They are sooooooo stunning. @Libra926 did you ever find out what was causing O's face to get all red several months ago? I looks great now.
I didn't do it
Both the close ups are great. O is getting so big and V, what can ya say,, what a hunka hunga
Lovely pictures! I would be soooo annoyed with my neighbors if I were you!! I am glad you and the bullies finally caught a break, and on such a lovely day!
Vegas and Orion both look very content chillin' in the sunshine
Wonderful pictures, you have 2 very beautiful bullys!

No..her face is a tiny bit better...but not much. I think the shadowing hides the tear stains. I tried the hydrogen peroxide mix...but Orion made a game out of trying to eat the paste off my finger before I could apply it to her face. She did this so many times..I was afraid I would get it into her eyes. We also got a bottle of ketoconazole shampoo for the face and chin. Vegas was tested and was positive for yeast and another form of bacteria on the chin. He said since he drools and drinks water by dunking his whole face...that it might be hard to get rid of it. Also, their stew has a bit of red in the color..and if it doesn't get wiped off their chins, it stains. So, I think it's just the lighting.
Those are such sweet pics! Love the close up of Vegas! The look on his face is priceless! Love it.

They are so adorable!!! I just love them. And you are WAYYY more patient than I am ... we had a neighbor with barking dogs. (We live in apartments that are like condos so she was right on the other side of a concrete wall.) Anyway, her two large dogs (pit mix and border collie mix) literally barked all day and ran up and down the stairs. We left her a few notes on her door (Figuring maybe she didn't realize what was going on because it didn't happen when she was home), went to the property manager, and eventually had to call animal control. These dogs were home inside ALL DAY (over 14 hours!!!) every day like this. Not fair. Any dog that barks like that needs a different kind of care - I feel the same about that poor GS next door to you!!!
