    Went for a walk yesterday with the two mutts and came across another couple with a dog that was the absolute SPITTING image of Harvey...and the size of a small horse!

    The guy asked if he could let his dog off lead as we'd put ours back on, so I said yeah they were fine and the 3 of them proceeded to charge around like lunatics on the field for a good 15 mins whilst we had a chat.

    Said dog was 4 years old, and she was a rescue. Staff x goodnessknowswhat, but they think it was either dobe or great dane! :eek:

    "How old is he?"

    "Well he was born on 17th October, so just over 5 months..."

    "Yip, she was about that size when she was that age."

    :blink:


    Oh christ, I'm going to have a monster dog...

    I think I did jokingly mentioned he may be crossed with a great dane:rolleyes:

    The mystery will unravel as he grows. One of the joys of having a cross:D

    I'd start saving for a bigger collar if I was you :lol:

    The only time you need to panic is when people get transfixed on the paws and instead of the ... "oh what a cute puppy" ... you get ... "oh look at those paws" ....

    what ever size he will be, I think his going to grow to be a gorgeous dog :D

    Best watch out though, eh...he's clearly going to grow up to be a killing machine:

    I'm glad though, that our patience is paying off. He's a lot less timid now, and off leed greets any dog like a long lost friend. He might be a vicious, evil staff, but he's my evil, vicious staff... :mad:

    Sorry, been reading that other thread thats been locked and am a bit hacked off with some of the comments on there, to be honest, but can't vent. Grrrrrrrr
