    The pups on their way to the vet for their 6 week check up.

    1 boy, 6 girls- Leonbergers, gentle giants. Mom is doing fine and dad could care less! Havoc (dad) stands 5' 11" tall and weighs 155lbs. Mom stands 5'5" and tips the scale at a svelte 125lbs.

    5 pups are already spoken for and we're keeping 2.

    Well they sure are cute pups,

    I live a sheltered life and never heard of that breed.

    Are they guard dogs or, what are they bred for?

    They were bred in Germany in the 1800s as companions, portage dogs(cart pullers) and rescue dogs. They are widely used as water rescue dogs in Europe and Japan. Here they've been trained to be Search and Rescue as well as companion dogs for children with special needs.

    They are some of the most "child" tolerant dogs and make spectacular family pets. Easy to train, willing to work hard and play hard, but just as willing to be big couch potatoes. They do however shed enough to drive you mad. Daily brushing helps tremendously.

    Will post some updated pics of Roscoe at 8 weeks when we get him this weekend but in the meantime here's an excellent 10 things to remember with your pet, especially number 9..

    The 10 Canine Commandments

    1. My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from
    you will be painful for me. Remember that when you buy me.

    2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

    3. Place your trust in me - it's crucial for my well-being.

    4. Don't be angry at me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment.
    You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I have
    only you.

    5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I
    understand your voice when it's speaking to me.

    6. Be aware of however you treat me, I'll never forget it.

    7. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily
    crush the bones in your hands, but that I choose not to bite you.

    8. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy,
    ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not
    getting the right food, or I've been out in the sun or in the cold too
    long, or my heart is getting old and weak.

    9. Take care of me when I get old. You too, will grow old.

    10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: 'I can't bear to watch it', 'let it happen in my absence' or 'I am tired of you'.Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember, I love you

    Here is a pick of Frenchie, Mother was a miniature, father a standard, so technically he is a short standard,(two inches too tall for a miniature).

    Love that ACD, voodoo. One showed up on my steps on Christmas morning in 2003. She was a year old, hungry, and had been beaten badly. She hid under the car until we coaxed her out with food. My dad took her in and she became a tremendously loving, loyal and protective dog. And at age 13 she's still going strong out on the farm. Those heelers are some of my favorite dogs.

    They're all insane but you learn to work around it, Angus came to live with me at 10 months old (he just turned 8) and I was his 5th home that we know of, at some point somebody tried to beat the Queensland out of him so he's been a long term project
