Meet Macy.......

Well, we said we would never do it again. Then a while back we really started talking about it. But no we have had such bad luck with "dumb" dogs since our boxer died 8 years ago. No I mean seriously DUMB dogs. Once we adopted this beagle and every time we opened a door he bolted and ran full speed down the street. Then a few years later we adopted this American Bull dog and every time we opened a door it jumped over the wall (on a really steep cliff mind you) and ran down the hill into the people who live below us back yard. Are you seeing a pattern here? We were starting to think it was personal really. Then we felt bad that every time our kids got attached to a dog we had to send it to some crazy dog farm to run wild. So we got 2 birds. Then we got 2 cats.....ohhh and a fish. Ya' an everyday petting zoo really. But then Ry really started to want a dog cause frankly you can't lay your head on a cat. And cats have well; an attitude when it comes to say oh shoving them in the dryer or throwing a hard tennis ball at them. They tend to get hit between the eyes as apposed to fetching it. Do you see where I am going with this? So Dan and I did tons of research and I will say right off the bat we DO NOT like small dogs. Not even small-medium dogs. Please, if you own a small dog don't hate us it's just one of those things. Like for example some people like huge homes. Me? I prefer one I can keep picked up in say 30 minutes. Or some like small cars. I break out in hives at the thought of getting in a 2 door, low to the ground car. Personally we will always own large trucks. OK so it is when people think of getting a dog. Dan thinks it could possibly put into question his manhood if he were to walk down the street with a chihuahua. It's a fireman thing. LOL! So meet the newest member of our family;
3 month old Macy
We spent some time finding a breeder out in Simi Valley that truly loves her dogs. We didn't set out to spend money on a pure bred dog. We originally looked into rescue pets. But with a dog this size we wanted to know her background. Also we wanted to get her young so we could train her to be part of our family. Do the things we love to do.

She already weighs about 35 pounds and thinks she is a lap dog.

Did I mention she is a Great Dane? :)

I LOVE HER!!! I know it's incredibly rude to invite myself over to your house, but I'm going to do it any way. So when can my whole family and I come over and meet this gorgeous, leggy creation of God? Please? I'll pay you! :)

Way to get one of the biggest dogs you could get. And might I mention, one of the sweetest too. I LOVE great danes. She's a beautiful one too.

Look at the size of her paws...that's how I knew my puppy was going to be big. She is precious. I'm not fond of small dogs either, and both my dogs 80+ lbs think they are lap dogs. Its kind of funny. Can't wait to see how she grows with your family :)
