Walk this Way

When we made the decision to bring home the adorable little black white and brown pup from the shelter (seen below), we knew only a few things about him:

1) He was rescued from Georgia with his 10 brothers and sisters and his mom.
2) He was born on March 28th.
3) His mom was a hound mix.
4) He came from a neighborhood known to have a high number of back yard breeders of Great Danes.

As time went on, the size of his paws, his markings and his head shape indicated that there was definitely something bigger than a hound brewing inside the DNA of our new little friend.  Day by day we would search his face, study his long, muscular legs and make a mental note of his lanky and athletic build.

Finally, after five months of daily study my husband had the a-ha moment that led us to understand the genetic lineage that produced this long legged force of nature -

Maybe he was born at Skywalker Ranch in California and not in a back yard in Georgia,

 I can't take credit for the photoshop effort here. This was all my husband's doing.  Nice work, right?

He doesn't shoot lasers out of his eyes or mouth, does he? I like the connection. :) Did he lengthen his legs or are they really that long??

Lin - they are actually that long. He is the most gangly thing you have ever seen. When he sits on the stairs, his butt is on one stair and front legs on the stair below it, because it's the only way he is comfortable.

Lord, that's my worst nightmare, picking a dog from a shelter that I think will be no more than 30 lbs when fully grown and it turns out to be the size of a horse!

Good luck! :-)

But still with that puppy face. Just like my 18 year old. xo

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

LOL : ) Maybe he can get a part in the next sequel!

Angelika - We knew there was a possibility of Great Dane, but we looked away. Duh. We just looked away...

Alexandra - Yes, exactly. Tough not to love them, even when they eat all your hairbrushes and you have to go to work un-styled.

MOTPG - That would be great, because then he'd be earning a share of his massive food bill.
