Can't wait to see pics. I have a chocolate lab/rottweiller mix and a yellow lab/shepard mix. They're both about 90lbs and they're my babies :)

The pictures are only of one dog, Holley. A handsome boy or girl at that. I just *heart* those big dogs.

I bet he's going to shed like a fiend. Or my dogs. I'd suggest purchasing a "furminator" for the coat. It gets the undercoat out and is easy to use. I think we actually have the cat furminator, as I thought the dog ones were too big to use effectively. Seriously, that dog is going to shed and shed and shed. Regular brushings will help with him getting used to grooming.

If she needs to put weight on him immediately, pasta will do that. A cup or so a day with a little bit of olive oil will put some pounds on him. If there isn't an immediate need, I second the using a high quality food. My babies (95 pounds, 89 pounds and 55 pounds) alternate between Wellness large breed and Orijen. Carrots are a nice people food treat as well - our youngest is on a diet and she gets carrots as a treat and she really likes them.

Higher quality food with less fillers equals less poop. :rofl:

Congrats on your new granddog! He's a good looking boy!

There are two pictures of one dog and my baby girl. Yes, he is a gorgeous pup, isn't he? His name is Duke. He's mostly Great Pyranese with some Golden Retreiver and - the vet thinks - maybe a smidge of Husky. Note one blue eye and one brown! But he's a real love and so gentle! He's great for my oldest grandson, Zach, who is extremely hyper and easily frustrated. Whenever Duke hears Zach lose it, he wanders over and offers some doggie love, which seems to calm Zach down. I can't wait to meet him next month!

Holley, he's GORGEOUS! What a cutie! But yes, invest in a furminator STAT. Your daughter's house is going to have hair everywhere.

And it isn't a very big house, either!! With two very rambunctious little boys. I'll be up there in July-maybe a furminator is a good gift to bring along with all the Hot Wheels.... :lol:

I've always wanted a Great Pryanese. They are such great big babies!

If nothing else, you're going to need to invest in a lint brush with several back up rollers.
