    Because I have a lot to say about this dog and don't wanna crowd the forum with threads.

    He ate a lot today. I can see him filling out a little bit already, as odd as it sounds. The TOTW is giving him some loose stool but it's far less stool than he had on science diet.

    When I get my mom's camera working, I'll start posting video updates of his training. So far he just does sit, down and a halfassed recall.

    In the meantime, here are some photos from today.

    His worst foot, which is healing up nicely despite me still letting him run in the sand. He gets his feet soaked, cleaned and ointment-ed after every walk. I was thinking he might need vet care for this particular foot but it's looking much better today, we'll see how it looks tomorrow.

    The scars on his back, which will probably never regrow hair.

    Checking out his new front yard:

    *wag wag* I LOVE YOU, FOOD LADY!

    Zoom, you gotta wait 'til he's trained! :D Right now he's not very welcoming to anyone but me. But I think he'll be bolder and more sociable once he settles in and realizes that nearly anyone has the potential to be a food lady/guy.

    I think you'll like him, though. Once he does accept you, he gives the SWEETEST kisses. They remind me of Dobe kisses.. very quick.

    I won't be bringing him to NC with me to visit Eve's breeder so I guess that means I'm going to be making a separate trip out east with both the monsters for a meet :)

    He's got some pretty thick hair too...more so than a Dobe or Dane would lend I think...

    So, as I was feeding Zap tonight, my dad walks in and talks to him and pats him (while he's eating, no less! NO food aggression from this boy, at least not with people) and then makes this little teeny comment about how I should have a dog like this.

    *picks jaw up off the floor*

    Could it seriously be that easy?

    If there's no shepherd or lab in this dog, I'm Miss Universe. There's shepherd and lab in just about every mix around here. Same with "Pit Bull", which could very well be where he gets those adorable ears.

    Zap's movement at a trot (definitely not camel-gaited at the faster speeds, Renee)

    He's such a handsome dog. Love the ears! I'm glad things seem to be working out :). It looks like he's put on a few pounds already.
