    Yum Yum.


    The only thing is... I got nosy and asked what he eats. He eats beniful....
    I tried to inform his owner.. but it was a no go, i guess i have to try harder next time. I did offer to give him some of the yummy dehydrated chicken jerky i'm making, and he gladly accepted.


    Anyway, thats Sampson. Hes a funny pooch.

    Im sure you will. I want him and zelda to have a play session with running and all that jazz, but im just really afraid he would unintenionlly hurt her lol, he weights a lot compared to her yet. ^_^ Hes actually very gentle, but he likes to play like any dog too, and Zelda plays so crazy that she gets him all wound up and they were so crazy on lead. I dont know, haha, im just parnoid of my little baby getting hurt. :p

    edit, i noticed his nails we long too, but they didnt really touch the ground when he stood up.

    Rightly so.
    Maddie was litterally stepped on by a great dane when she was a pup. She yelped and everything - it was a pretty dramatic incident at petsmart... She's afraid of Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Newfs or any other Huge Dog at first, until she meets them and then they don't hurt her within the first 5mins :rolleyes: We've only met 2-3 in her whole entire life, they're pretty rare around here!

    He's a stunning dog!

    Actully merle is a bad color in danes, it happens when an arlequin mix whit a blue.

    The only accepted colors are

    Solid: black
    fawn
    blue

    Non solid:
    brindle
    arlequin (pure white whit black patches)
    mantle or boston (black whit some white markingslike the boston terrier or border collie)

    Even if is not an acepted color, this is a pretty dog :)

    One time I saw a puppy in a pet shop that was arlequin but insted of black she/he had fawn patches and in the border of the patches was brown, pretty puppy. ;)

    Uhhhh.... the merle gene is it's own gene, it's not a combination of them. (For example, a tri w/ white.. not it's own gene, a combo of genes to make that corloring.)
