Hubby has gone and done it! He has basically dragged this family into re-homing another dog. I had wanted to wait, but a suitable dog, according to the Rescue, is available. So, Hubby is now set to have his wish fulfilled. As for me, once committed, always smitten!
Zack is now a golden oldie. He is a lot more laid back now as an older dog, but has become more picky with his food. At 11.5 years, he is still my darling boy, and very much occupies a huge chunk of my heart. Whisper it only: of the three Pyrenean Mountain Dogs we have given a home to, Zack is my all time favourite. I don’t know that another dog could ever take his special place. And he goes practically everywhere with us.
Our newest addition is coming to us on 9th February if all goes smoothly. He is a 1-year old blue Great Dane, and is taller than Zack. At this age, he is all skinny legs and large head, with a body that still needs to fill out. We went to meet him a week ago, and he came across as being biddable, friendly, and gentle. I hope I am correct and that he will be the same at home. More importantly, I hope that the two dogs will get along well and become good friends very quickly.
We have never owned a Great Dane before. So, to any Great Dane owners out there, please feel free to offer advice on how to care for them. I would be very glad to receive any tips!
