Introducing Excitement!

Introducing Brutus!

He's 8 weeks old yesterday.



He weighs about 30 pounds, although that changes daily.

He's sorta housetrained.

His breeder sent him with a baby book, a blanket, and his own squeaky horsie (in the top picture).   He weighed 1 pound, 9 ounces at  birth!  He only gained 3 ounces in his first week, but clearly he's been making up ground ever since.

It was an exciting weekend!

Oh Marjie, just what i've been waiting for. Brutus is just adorable. I can only imagine how happy the family is and Thor would be too. Here's to a long, healthy and happy life with your new little man. One last thing. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeee. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

He's gorgeous ! Alex was only the size of a mouse when she was born (just a couple of ounces) and we saw growth, but nothing like seeing a big dog grow. Our next door neighbours have a new boxer puppy who's pretty much doubled in the last month. I think he's 15 weeks now.

Welcome Brutus - you've got yourself a great home !!!

Oh Margie, what joy! I had hoped that yo would eventually bring another big dog into your home and share him with us as you so graciously did with Thor. I know that when Thor passed many of us were heartbroken and cried for him and for your family. Best of luck and many happy years of love and happiness with your new baby.

I was wondering if you would have another dog! He's adorable!

Pam said...

Yeah! I am so excited for you guys. I have a feeling Brutus has a guardian angel watching over him named Thor. Congrats on your newest addition!

SissySees said...

Hooray! He's quite handsome already. I look forward to seeing more of young Brutus! Congrats to you and the whole family, and tell Brutus he's a very lucky boy.

Congratulations, we are so happy for you all. I know no dog can take Thor's place, but I can tell that Brutus will be loved a lot. Love the photos!

What a pretty dog. I cannot imagine having a dog that grows so fast you can notice changes on a daily basis.

Big Dude said...

Congratulations on the new family member. Hopefully he'll be a great addition and I look forward to watching him grow.
