Enormous, huge, great, big puppy grin

He's a Maremma Sheepdog. 5 months old. Around the size of a small pony with feet the size of dinner plates.

He's being very good. Bit barky first night but not a peep last night. One wee on the floor yesterday and needs a bit of persuasion to go outside to wee but will go once he's out.

DH has taken him for a couple of walks and he's stuck very close and not wandered off.

SmallDog is a bit jealous. A few snaps and snarls over toys but again, not bad.

The cats have ignored him completely and he's ignored them.

So, I know it's all a bit honeymoony, but so far, so good.

And he's moulting his puppy fluff. I've hoovered twice since lunchtime..

AtYourCervix Mon 19-Aug-13 20:10:07

Small is being a bit of a jealous pita this evening. Snappy and growly. Problem is they can't fight and get it over with because of the expensive back.

AtYourCervix Mon 19-Aug-13 20:11:58
