    I got a puppy so I wanted to make a thread for puppies. There's about a million old dog threads if you do a search so I didn't know which to reply to. None seemed very long or all inclusive for puppies. If you have a puppy put it in this puppy thread!

    I got Beatrix a few weeks ago. I just call her B. My mom got her brother named Dakoda. They turned 10 weeks yesterday. As of 8 weeks they weighed 17lbs (B) and 20lbs (Dakoda).

    This is a lot of fun for me. I've never had a dog that is all mine. I've wanted a Great Dane for a few years but wasn't ever in a good situation to have one. Now I have some time and live in a big house with a big yard (not that it matters, they never get left alone... big babies). It helps that my mom got the brother. I can leave B at my mom's house to be babysat when I need to go work and I can watch Dakoda when my parent's need a break.

    B is a black Great Dane female.
    (Her eyes only look like this in photos.)


    Dakoda is a Harlequin male.

    This photo is pretty recent. It doesn't matter, they grow so fast it's impossible to keep up in photos.

    Man, just when my head was about to explode from cuteness overload, you had to go do that. Thank you, Sonorous. You just saved my life.

    Granted, I may be blind and sterile the rest of my life, those are minor quibbles.

    Of course no TB puppy thread is complete without a picture of Roxie the boxer:

  9. Rick,
    That's a beautiful dog. It's not what I associate with the word poodle. I hadn't seen one until this past summer, and that guy was a big, sweet doofy dog named Elvis. He was way cool!

    Thanks. Yeah, he's been great. He's a very happy dog and and fairly mellow for a 10 month old. But he's always ready to go nuts at the slightest sign of play time.

    Most people do have a bad impression of the Poodle as the mini and particularly the toy have given them a bad rap.

    The Standard Poodle, as the original Poodle, is alot like Labs and Goldens. Just great, good natured, active retrievers but without the shedding.

    yeah, breed standard is 110 for a male :eek:

    he's able to yank on my arm fairly well, so i have to hold the leash with both
    hands close to my body. he's trained well, but i have accepted training will last
    during his entire lifespan.

    he will yank pretty hard when the trash can monster is in the front yard, but is even
    worse when the stick monster is in the yard after a good tree trimming ;) :D

    dogs are just so cute! :)

    i don't know what i would do with out Jaco.

    nothing is worse than taking Jaco out for a pee at 3am and one of the shadow monsters try to approach. Jaco's bark is like my Eden/Aguilar stack - thunderous!!! he can wake the whole street! :D
