Denali The Dog

In October 2001, while working in Pennsylvania as a photojournalist, I welcomed into my life a golden retriever. I named him Denali, after the mountain not the truck. Attempting to being creative, I put a bow on Denali, took a photo and sent it to my family and friends in Ohio as my Christmas card. Year after year, the cards became more creative, adding clothes and wigs. With suggestions from family and friends in 2007 I turned my Denali, Christmas tradition into Denali The Dog greeting cards.

People were always amused with Denali's photos and patience. Denali The Dog photos are all individual portraits that I currently take in my living room/playroom/studio. Its amazing what you can get your puppy to do with lots of love and a treat. Some of the outfits I've made or purchase from goodwill. The words for his cards are given to me from family and friends. In May of 2012 Denali and I welcomed into our life a puppy golden retriever named Wilbur, who also goes by the name Sir Wilbur. In November of 2012 Denali was diagnosed with nasal cancer. My heart was broken when I found out he had cancer. I sat in the corner crying for a bit and realized it was doing neither of us any good. I found out that Ohio State University Vet school offered a clinical trial nasal cancer treatment. Thankfully, I got him enrolled in the study and was able to spend a extra year and a half with him. Denali passed in June of 2014.

Wilbur continued in Denali's, footsteps of having fun and making people smile. At home Wilbur was surrounded by love and tons of hugs with our two little girls. Its amazing how great he was with our girls, they loved him so much. Wilbur suddenly passed away in January of 2020. It was extremely hard on me and the girls. He was here one day then gone the next. I miss him like crazy. In May of 2020 we welcomed into our home golden Wilma and she is follow in Denali and Wilbur's footsteps. You can follow day in the life stories about Wilma on Denali The Dog's Facebook page or blog at Denali The Dog's Facebook page is updated every Tuesday and Thursday.

I love and miss Denali and Wilbur.

Thank you for visiting my page, I hope you enjoy my cards.
