When Winky passed away Sandy lost  his soulmate, best friend, front man, his everything, now with a paw on his shoulder Winky and Sandy have a new frontman! GREB !!!

Sandy we still all love you and thank you for allowing us to ride along with you and Winky! It will continue to be an honor to now watch Greb grow and learn to ride!!!

This is my human half Allan, but his friends call him Sandy! 

Sometimes being man’s best friend is a ruff gig. Training and caring for my human is an arduous but rewarding process.

If my human manages to stray from me, please give him a call. I can’t leave him to his own devices for long!



My Dad

More Wag, Less Bark

Welcome, Winky Lovers, fellow doggies and even friendly feline lovers (I’m not entirely convinced you exist, but I’m an open-minded fellow). I’m Winky, a Harley riding Canadian German Shepherd that is well known to many, who loves my human Sandy. I lick human faces, and chew anything and everything in sight, (Not to pieces though)

 I’m about 96 pounds of pure love. Neither my bark nor my bite is bad and, if you scratch me behind the ears, I’ll consider adding you to my inner circle of humans. As many of you now now I headed to the Rainbow Bridge as there were some fellow doggie riders and yes, feline riders that needed my help. Although sad for many especially Sandy, I am always watching over him. In fact, I helped him choose our new frontman, Harry Greb Glides. My dad told me his thoughts on the name, I was like really, I was cool and able to pull off the name Winky, but I'm not so sure Greb will be as good looking as I was, but hey maybe, you never know. Just make sure that you get him into the Spaw Day, so he will look close to as good as I did. I will be guiding him from above, to learn how to ride and how to look cute and get lots of goodies from Dad! I hope you will join us as a new chapter begins for Winky's Rides!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
