A New Family Member

We are anticipating a new family member in April!

Meet our new Great Dane puppy-- born on Valentine's Day. He'll be staying with his mamma until he's 8 weeks old. We're so excited to bring him home.

My sister and her husband recently got a Great Dane puppy too. Her name is Bella. Currently she's 3 1/2 months old and 51 pounds. She came for a visit the other night and I think I fell in love.

Isn't she beautiful?

Our little guy should look very similar to her in a few months.

And then when he's fully grown, probably something like this: Picture of Olaf, a Great Dane dog on Dogster

They are supposed to be great family dogs and are nicknamed "gentle giants."

We have a few weeks until we can pick him up, so we have a little more time to read, get a few things ready. . . and to pick out a name!
