Well my ovcharka pup Bear is getting huuuuuge! - he's the same size as our ridgebacks now and hes nearly 7 months old so plenty of growing left to do! He's turning into a pretty good guard dog so far and is spending more time out with the other dogs now, he nicks all thier bones and stashes them everywhere!! His knickname is Flump as he just flops wherever he happens to be standing and falls asleep in a big fluffy lump - usually in a doorway. He sits all night on our landing watching over the yard and woofs or growls if he sees something, he's done that since he was 12 weeks old which just shows how much guarding is in thier instincts, he's got a pretty impressive bark too!!! Anyway this was him yesterday: Talk about sneaky, I was out doing the horses and he climed over the garden wall and plonked himself on the setee - it's a tough life!!
