Dakota

A couple of months ago, I measured Dakota for length and height. For while we didn't think he was growing at all, but in the last couple of weeks I could actually see a difference. When I measured him today, with hubby's help, he had grown 4 inches longer and 3 inches taller. He isn't a short stubby dog any longer. At one point I thought he might always be that way.


Here he is sitting beside hubby in the yard. I tried to get one of myself with him, but he wasn't cooperating.
Dakota and hubby playing. He loves to go outside and jump around the yard. He also does this with me, but not tonight.

Rough housing. Dakota is feisty and likes to play rough. He is more gentle with me and the boys.
Yes, he likes to dance too. As you can see he has changed a lot since we brought him home at the first of February. He has changed from a biting, scratching puppy to a calmer dog. He still has a lot to learn, but we can leave him alone for hours and he never has an accident in the house. He was one of the easiest dogs to housetrain that I've ever had. The one thing he's still doing the odd time is chewing. However, he is a good companion and very protective, which is just what I was looking for when we adopted him.

  3. He is really a beautiful dog! About the chewing -he's still a puppy, less than a year old -probably still cutting a few more teeth. Give him some rawhide chew toys or something like that to keep him occupied!

  4. He is beautiful....... I know that the chewing is a terrible habit but I hope he out grows that. I know how to train a dog but I have never figured out how to stop him chewing.......

    I am going to try and get back to the blog world.. Seems that time is just not there much.. I did not have time to email you today .. Maybe I will get to take a few minutes tomorrow...
