It's visually offical, Bogey has been caught in size. Bogey still weighs a few more pounds as he has more muscle than the pup, but otherwise they are eye to eye with Reese a week aways from 4 months old.

Reese put on 20lbs in the month between vet visits (50 lbs).

Wow! How much will he weigh when he is fully grown?

The Boys typically reach 150lbs. Being a Giant breed with short life expectancy (8-9 years), lean is good and is a high prioirty of mine considering Reese is VERY food motivated!

Reese's grand father (Cosmo pictured a few pages back) reached 12 years old a few months ago. reaching 12 warrants a "Grey Muzzle Award" from the Leonberger Association and unfortunately is a short list. Fingers crossed Reese inheritessome of Grand Pa's logevity. Age was the one negative that gave me pause l when considering a Leo.

I want to get some video. Last time out I forgot a spare battery and camera died immediately. Got my mom hooked as well. She wants to get on skype now more than ever. Forget her son, grand kids, she wants to see Reese!

I want to get some when they are playing together. From a Golden owners perspective you might think for the sound it Reese viciously attacking Bogey. Leo's are very vocal in comparison. Bogey is talking more as result of being with Reese.

Reese started puppy training last weekend. I'm not thrilled with the instruction on day one, but will give it a few more classes (location is convenient) before I shop elsewhere.

Katie (my 12 y/o daughter) wants violin for her Birthday. Not sure my house is sound proofed enough. Checkout the Leo singing while sitting (like a person with feet on the floor):


Guess these folks put their Leo in the garage without a comfy bed to lay on:


Yes I have too much free time at work today

Gave Reese's Breeder and update and got some reassurance He is fine, and not to worry so much about weight while growing. Cosmo (grand dad) was at 140lbs at 10 months. I feel better.

When a mentioned how vocal he is, she said "Oh Reese is a Wookie"... Very fitting title!

Two of my photogenic babies..

Hope to get some pics and maybe a video up tonight or tomorrow. Going to take the boys out to play at their favorite water spot this afternoon with perfect 60's weather today.

Reese has some eye drainage and never has prior to a few days ago. slightly green and thick. Vet is not concerned (phonecall) since he is not otherwise sick or showing any negative signs. She thinks it's probably allegies. Not there one day, and there the next surprised me. Will try some Benadryl tonight.

Couldn't find a rasied feeder that I wanted in the house, but found a wood worker on Etsy that made these crate style boxes than tables and having a raised feeder made with a tray insert for the bowls on top. That Etsy site is going to cost me but much nicer than the Chinese crap sold in the big box pet stores.

Reese is one step closer to being a swimmer. The boys are worn out.
