Oh Geez....now I totally want one! No way I'd ever convince DH. I'm still hoping for a second Golden in a year or two.
Reese is adorabl, and I can't believe how calmly they are playing together!

I was very concerned about Bogey playing too rough with Reese knowing how rough he can be with us, but it's really not been a problem other than Bogey pulling him around by the collar... Bogey better enjoy it now as Reese should pass him in size in about 5 months old.

We had 2 Goldens that grew up together for over 13 years and LOVED having the two. After getting Bogey it was soon clear we needed to get him a little (in age only) brother. Chloe the little Westie who can be seen in the video is short on patience with puppies. She tolerates them in small doses. She may be the smallest, but is definately top dog and fits the "B" word for female dog to a tee.

He is already pushing his bowl around barking at you if you happen to forget his meals more than 20-30 minutes. Problem is we soak his kibble before feeding him so he sits and barks at the bowl while it is softening out of reach (cute yet annoying).

We put Bogey in the kennel while Reese eats his food in peace. Once Reese is done eating he takes just as much excitement in going over to the kennel and barking at Bogey.. "Ha Ha, Your locked up and I'm out here"!

All the neighbors are volunteering to puppy sit whenever we need (or not). He is such a calm but chatty boy. He loeves to be carried around (thats not going to last long), and snuggle until someone over heats.

First bath started out with him very interested in the tub and the water, until I put him in.. Then he freaked out trying to climb out. Those big puppy paws have cat like sharp claws. Within a few minutes of just splashing water he got over the I'm going to drown in 8 inches of water, and began to calm down.. I won't say enjoy it, but he did well after that. Bogey was nearby to say Ha Ha... Your getting a ba-ath!

Will get some better quality pictures up this weekend. It's amazing how many lower light pictures result in a dog with no face.. when he's outside at night and only a few feet away facing you, you see a faceless body.
It really is hard to photograph dogs with dark,coats. In case you didn't see my request for help, I'll post a link here. I got some really good tips. http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...ml#post1842987 (Dear photographers: tips please)

Bogey sleeps on his back a lot... It is a GR forum.

You are clearly having a great time with your Golden AND Leonberger. Maybe it's time to change the title of you thread! . Love your pictures.

I was getting "reminded" to get the camera out and get puppy pics from friends and family.

I was playing around with the camera and lighting setting to see what I could get away with.

But yes... I am having fun But I don't think I can change the thread title.

Great video and pictures, Reese is gorgeous. I am so infatuated with him, I've never been around any Leonbergers before.
