Pictures of the Pack
« on: November 04, 2008, 10:41:33 am »
When I let Brutus outside and he doesn't have to go potty, he has been making a bee line for the side of our house.  I went outside to play with the dogs earlier this afternoon and discovered why!  Brutus has made himself cozy in his very own doggy den.



Here is a photo of both Penny and Brutus so you can see their size difference.  Penny is a little bit bigger than a pure bred corgi.



These two are getting to be best buddies and follow each other around.



While I was out there with them, Penny asked Brutus to play!


This is something I don't think Brutus has been comfortable with to date, as he is still adjusting to his environment but he surprised me and let his inner puppy lose!



Brutus and Penny aren't the only ones who are best buddies.  Someone else is completely in love.  ;D

Awwe, wonderful pictures.
He is such a handsome guy.  Nice to see your other dog in there as well.  :)

I'm not for breeding "designer dogs" on purpose but Brutus' mix is just amazing and I would be thrilled to see that mix turn into a new breed.  He is beautiful, graceful, affectionate, and just has all of the wonderful qualities of the different breeds.  Not to mention he's huge. :)

How is his shyness going? He looks so right at home. He definitely loves the momma. What a great, handsome looking dog.

It's too much work to get the line to breed true for me to undertake it, but this IS how pretty much all the dog "breeds" we have now came into being. It might have been directed by working ability or use a couple hundred years ago, but making a doggy cocktail and then refining the results is how we got the diversity we dog owners now enjoy (hello, Bullmastiffs!).

What I do think is nuts is the $$$ some people are asking (and paying!) for crossbreeds.

Brew is actually really surprising us.  Ever since we took him to the dog park last weekend, he has really been opening up, even to hubby a little.  He was attached to me almost right away but this has become stronger in the last month or so.  Yesterday he followed me out into the aviary to see what the squawk was all about and the night before he followed me into the bathroom when I went to give the kidlets a bath.  This morning when I let him out, he got silly again and then started barking at something (unknown to me) which is the first time I have heard him bark at anything.  Last night I was feeling a little down and he came and laid on me which made me feel a lot better.  He's such a snuggle rug.

I LOVE your boy :-* LOVE HIM. I think he's a breed all his own. I noticed on your page you said, "he's a giant creature from the "Muppet" Show" So True!

My totally bratty children nicknamed my beautiful Margaret:

This is Margaret, below..looking at our foster puppy.
