Meet the newest member of our family . . . Harley Maximus:
Birthdate: 7.6.08 (7 wks); Weight: 7 Lbs; Height: 10"
What you can't see in this photo (buried in the grass) are his huge paws . . . he'll be growing into them, as he's a Great Dane! And yes, we've had one before and know what to expect from them. They think they are lap dogs, will sit on the sofa just like a human and crawl up into bed with you when you are sound asleep!
When taller (at about 1 year), they can drink from the kitchen or bathroom sink and also make a snack out of anything you might happen to leave out on the kitchen counter! But they are the friendliest buckets of love you'll ever find and amazingly, very gentle with children. Watch out for their bark -- most of the time, it's worse than their bite!
The girls had been begging for a dog for a while and seriously, who could resist that face? A friend told me I had no backbone at all, LOL!
So if I'm not here, I'll probably be training or walking the new puppy or buying more food for him . . . hopefully I'll still be able to squeeze in some crafting time! Have a wonderful weekend!
