The Duke

5.03.2010

Andrew and I took some random photos with Duke this weekend before heading off to a party. We had washed him the night before so he was acting all proud with his fresh clean coat.
I don't realize how big he is until I see him in pictures. Our baby is 11 months old and currently weighs 125lbs. 18lbs heavier than me. Taking him for a walk is an absolute spectacle. As he's still a baby, he still tends to chase everything that moves...leaves, bags, anything and everything. You try holding him back when he's determined to catch that flying treat. My arms have become quite muscular :)
I love him like crazy!!!






He loves it when you blow in his face...lol

@ Sónnable: Congratulations on beginning your blog. The only tips I ahve to making great pictures are:
1. Have fun and don't be shy.

2. Photoshop, Picnik, or any other photo retouching site.

Good luck!

@ Anonymous: Does Duke drool? Let's just say that when he drinks, we need to be waiting beside him to wipe his mouth with a cloth. If you miss him and he shakes his head...SPLATTER!!! He only drools when he's excited or right after he drinks. That's the only set back but we still love him like crazy!!!

@ chichichic: Duke is a French Mastiff...Dogue de Bordeaux. His father weighs 150lbs and mother 130lbs. I'm curious to see how big Duke will be when he's full grown :)
