Wait. I don’t see the lawn and leaf size bags you must have to carry to clean up after your pony!
natalie saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:04 am
love the long legged pictures! daughter and dog alike.
kristin saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:12 am
I can’t believe your daughter was wearing shorts. I think you live kind of near me, but I have certainly not yet experienced shorts weather.
I have to say, though, I like the combo of shorts and winter boots. Except only long-legged, skinny young things like your daughter could pull it off. I am none of those things any longer.
carson saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:14 am
People DO look like their dogs…in the legs, anyway. And that’s a compliment for your daughter. Hey, you’ve seen this gal’s site, I hope:
kylydia saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:21 am
I’d say that’s an accurate portrayal! Our Guinness Great Dane likes sniffing EVERYTHING, too, as well as the sideways walk.
Cat saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:28 am
I love Bossy’s daughter’s winterwear!
Heather R saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:32 am
My Dad just rescued two Great Danes… Lord bless you all, I have a hard time keeping up with my Greyhound and he’s about half the size!
Grandma J saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:33 am
I wear shorts with boots when I walk JJ too….in my dreams.
Stella seems to know her way around the hood…that’s a good thing so Bossy’s daughter doesn’t get lost.

Are you sure this isn’t an ad for Uggs?
jennifer saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:36 am
Oh, these pictures are adorable!!
Shania saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:38 am
Do people accuse you of starving Stella? My mastiff was skinny like her and I was constantly having to defend his eating habits!
Dayle saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:48 am
Are you sure you’re not from Canada? Because the whole shorts, uggs, down-filled vest combo is practically a uniform for Canadian girls at the beginning of spring. The shorts show our undying hope that yes, winter well end…eventually.
The Other Dawn saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:59 am
I’m sorry. I couldn’t hear you over the shorts with Uggs.
RuthWells saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:08 am
Is it a requirement that the dog walker have legs exactly the same length as the Great Dane?… Well done, Bossy’s Daughter. (Gawd, she’s getting tall.)
MariaV saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:19 am
How tall is Bossy’s daughter? I think she may be taller than me. I’m GREEN!
Bossy’s Dane isn’t just Great, she will lead you down the right path.
Rachel D. saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:28 am
She has long Model legs. Sooo Green.
I want to steal her Uggs to!
The Dane is going to start asking for a fee
for every picture soon…
kathy in b.c. saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:28 am
Bossy’s daughter looks just like my mailman. Boots and shorts in the middle of winter! What brave souls. I won’t wear shorts in public anymore.
My sister’s dog was a boxer and I always called him Scooby Doo’s brother Sniffy Doo.
Domestic Goddess (in training) saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:30 am
Thank god she’s not wearing a pencil skirt like those damn Westminster handlers! I hate to see them struggle to walk in those tight skirts!
Ellie saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:33 am
Six long lean and lanky legs.
Kait saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:45 am
At first I thought “How cute! Bossy’s daughter is wearing shorts with tights and Uggs to keep warm!”
Then I realized those weren’t white tights. Those were white legs. And I felt a little ashamed of myself for giggling that someone else has pale legs like me.
tuesday saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:45 am
Why doesn’t she just ride him?
The Subtle Rudder saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:49 am
I have a Smella, too! She’s a seven-pounder, though: http://thesubtlerudder.com/?p=81
David saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:59 am
Two more photos and you could have had a 12 of 12.
Lesley saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:12 pm
Brrrrrrrrr. Bossy’s daughter’s naked legs are making me COLD!
But the pics make the heart warm so it all evens out.
Kristine saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:13 pm
Wow, I wish my dogs would behave that calmly on a walk.
Ms Cranky Pants saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:14 pm
My whole life, I’ve wished for long lean gams like your two girls!
Baby Favorite saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:27 pm
Yes, the long, lean legs of your daughter’s make me envious, but that adorable, quaint DOWNTOWN area is what’s REALLY got me drooling.
I hate California. I want to move to wherever it is you live!
Gigi saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:29 pm
Your girl is just so cute I couldn’t even think about the giant doggy. And could you please have her belt out another song for us??
ashley saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:39 pm
BD looks ready to dog walk in NYC in her mod and fab outfit! And if she gets tired she can hop on her pony for a ride home…
Lisa saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:39 pm
is Bossy’s daughter wearing PAJAMA SHORTS!?!!?!?!?!
Reeb saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:43 pm
I was with #20/Kait, thinking they were tights in the first photo. Then, “wait a minute, that’s real skin!” I stand awed at the resistance to cold.
Note how long BD’s strides are, to keep up with Stella’s. And she does it.
Reeb saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:44 pm
You forgot to document the pause to pee on the grass.
HAGERDASH saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 12:58 pm
birdie23 saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 1:06 pm
Whoa pony!!bossy’s girls sure have long legs. Wish my beagle would walk instead of a blaze of fur whoof! Does the grey coat stroll with Stella too?
Cactus Petunia saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 1:52 pm
Bossy’s girls make quite a fashion statement!
lizski saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 2:06 pm
You have to have legs like that to have a Great Dane, don’t you? I guess that’s why I’m doomed to have miniature poodles and goldendoodles – all of whom have good sized haunches… *sigh.
kay saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 2:07 pm
You sure don’t have to worry about her safety when she’s out walking that horse you call a dog.
Momo Fali saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 2:17 pm
I love how the 2nd, 3rd and 6th pictures have the exact same leg movements.
justjuli saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:06 pm
My gosh – but your girl’s legs are long! And it cracks me up that she’s wearing shorts with her boots, scarf, long shirt and vest. 🙂 Oh, to have the metabolism of a tween again! 🙂
Kathryn saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:17 pm
Our Great Dane does that too! The sniffing, and then the tug-of-war battle to keep going when she wants to keep sniffing. She usually wins…
La Mom saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:43 pm
I shudder to think of the kilos of dog poop your sweetie-pie would leave on Paris sidewalks — that’s why you only see Yorkies here!
furiousball saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:44 pm
i want one
Beth saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:06 pm
For me to have a series of ‘owner walking similar-type dog’ photos, my pup would need to be a bull dog or bassett hound!
Maria saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:07 pm
I will ignore the fact that bossy’s cute daughter is wearing shorts. IGNORE. LalalallalalIcan’thearyou! kind of ignore.
Nice Chevy Nova.
reen saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:34 pm
Me three on thinking those bare legs were wearing tights at first…brrrrrrr!!
Stella’s looking a wee bit perturbed at you in the second-to-last shot…maybe cause you said it was time to go home…then tries to drag you all back downtown in the last shot. Dogs are so funny.
kate saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:50 pm
i don’t know whose legs are longer, BOSSY’s dane’s or BOSSY’s daughter’s.
Lisa saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:50 pm
What sweet, beautiful pictures!
Lizzy saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 5:22 pm
If I had legs like Bossy’s daughter, I would wear shorts every day of my life. (Heck, I would wear shorts daily if I had Stella’s legs, although I would only want two of them.)
Trini saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 5:23 pm
HAHAHAH. I have TWO count ’em TWO Basset Hounds, thus I have TWO owner/dog lookalike combos, broad butts, thick thighs and all 🙂
Michelle saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 5:40 pm
I am amused by the puffer vest and boots paired with the short shorts.
hippo brigade saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 6:27 pm
I am so proud of your dane. She is a superb walker. My tiny mother lives by herself and has a 170 lb great dane that pulls my mom everywhere. She needs to learn a few things from your Stella.
Ree (the Other One) saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 6:35 pm
I <3 Stella.
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 7:04 pm
Oh how I adore Danes… even when they ‘tow’ … has Bossy’s daughter considered rollerblades? Kinda like waterskiing but with Stella as the motorboat, the pavement as the river, and the blades as the skis? Now THAT would be worth a series of photos…
Our Cozzie was taught to ‘heel’ from a very early age… not that he wanted to. He was BUSTING to lead, but was such a good boy that 95% of the time, he stuck to his position at my side. The other 5% wasn’t pretty. Not pretty at all….
operagal saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 7:47 pm
my first car was a Chevy Nova – I loved that car. It was a ’76, and it was a really pretty medium blue color. Kinda sparkly.
Mr Farty saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 8:07 pm
Love the trendy white tights. Wait, what?
Carrie saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 8:42 pm
Wait….pajama pants girl swapped for pajama boxer shorts?
I love it.
I’ve got myself some pretty long legs and my dogs have two inch legs…no pet owner likeness like yours have.
I work with a girl who has three Great Danes. (THREE!)
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 9:13 pm
Bossy’s Dane isn’t just great; she insists that her owners resemble her.
Chicky Chicky Baby saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 9:22 pm
Gotta love Danes, they go where they wanna go and do what they wanna do.
Wait, wasn’t that a song? Fer chrissake.
Cheri @ Blog This Mom! saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 10:06 pm
Was that supposed to be How to Walk a Pony in Ten Exhibits?
Dorothy Stahlnecker saysFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:21 pm
Those are the greatest photos of your beautiful daughter and her miniature pony.
Great shots of the walk although not quite sure who’s taking who there..
Dorothy from grammology
Avitable saysFebruary 13, 2009 at 1:23 am
I want to meet your dog. Oh, and the rest of the two-legged fam, too.
Catherine McP saysFebruary 13, 2009 at 1:32 am
Bossy’s daughter is just a wishin for spring.
wrh saysFebruary 14, 2009 at 11:32 am
Sadly, I have learned that I can never have a great Dane because I cannot accomplish step 1 of walking a great dane: grow impossibly long and elegant legs.
Manic Mommy saysFebruary 17, 2009 at 6:31 pm
Stella to Bossy’s Daughter: Psst, I think someone’s following us.
Leatrice saysJune 23, 2011 at 1:06 am
Yup, that’ll do it. You have my apeprciaiton.
