My rescue great dane is doing SO WELL.

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Today my hubby and I were playing in the garden with the dogs, well, truth is, Justin was playing and I was taking photographs as usual. When I looked back at the original photos I realized just how beautiful my rescue great dane Jewel is doing. Not only has she put on weight beautifully but she has become a confident and happy dog.
Jewel when we first got her 4 months ago.

Poor girl never lifted her head above her own shoulders.

Jewel today holding her head up as a proud great dane should.

Even trusting Justin to play games for treats.

And of course the beautiful Bronson who turned 1 year old. Its hard to believe he has been part of our family for so long already.

Bronson now at 1 year old.

Its amazing how Bronson has a carbon copy personality of the old man Chad we had to put to sleep and they are in no way related. Just goes to show how the company you keep matters.

So the dogs are looking awesome. Maybe at the end of this year I will be too emoticon

    Looking very good! Wish my pit bull rescue would hurry and look as good. But only had him 3 wks and I need to be patient. Love him so much, he and the schnauzer little white girl of 4 months of rescue love each other. Both spayed and neutered.

    They are nice fit babies!

I'm wondering how much does jewel and Bronson weigh and how much are you feeding them?

My 70 lb. lab is 4 1/2 yrs old and eats 2 cups of dry food a day.
