    Chances are even with his size he'll be the least destructive of the lot in the house. Once he's a true big boy they become so laid back.

    I do not miss that part of puppies growing up. Although mine were better as long as they had chew toys. Shoes still had to be up out of reach though.

    Oh noooo! Dh's dog has gnawed on the futon and a couple of other pieces of furniturel like my grandmother's cedar chest. He didn't start that until he was 9 or 10 months old, I think. That's what gets me. It's not like he doesn't have a buddy to play with or a shortage of toys.

    I just wanted to say that all 3 of your dogs are handsome. Sure wish my Great Pyr had Duke's markings.

    How is Duke doing now?

    He is growing FAST. taller and heavier then my female gsd who is 70lbs. Has a few more inches to go before he is as tall as moe my gsd lab mix, who is a lean 130 lbs.
    He is a kangal maremma mix, his coloring is more like a golden retriever. his face is his mothers kangal color. Here are some new pics. He is laying on a queen size bed for comparison. he will be 5 months old on sept 4th lol IMG_20190821_083055_211.jpg 20190821_082658.jpg IMG_20190824_093107_280.jpg IMG_20190821_083055_211.jpg

    One of the things I learned many years ago that had to do with horses. That they were exceptionally smart but if there is something they are going to learn and remember always it would be the bad habits/behavior of those around them. It proved to be true.

    Now you're getting to see that with the dogs.

    Didn't he promise? Is this like the kid that wants a pet, promises to take care of it and then it falls to the Mom to do it all after the new wears off?

    Yep he promised as usual and then did nothing. Same as before. Which was why i didnt want a puppy cause i knew it would fall back on me.

    You think a GS is big but dang, Sadie looks like a medium size dog next to Duke.

    I do not miss those destructive days. Although having three at the same time somehow I missed dealing with hit.

    The scary thing is, he's not done. You're going to have an elephant living in the house when he hits a year old.

    I like that first pic. That implies one pooped out pup but willing to be photogenic at the same time.
