  • Still Here (update on life)

    Ever since classes started back up I haven't been on here as much as I'd like to be, but I still lurk occasionally.

    I am also no longer keeping the boas I had. The IBD scare with my albino shut down any possibilities of ever acquiring any new snakes or future breeding plans. I wound up giving the two girls I had to a friend of mine who is keeping them as pets. They're still doing very well with him, and I plan on starting over in the future.

    On the other hand, my girlfriend and I got a dog! We've been talking about getting one for over a year, and we finally found the puppy we wanted.

    Meet Loki, our Great Dane pup. Born on June 7th and weighing 48 lbs at his most recent vet appointment last week.

    This was him at 10 weeks:


    Mom and Dad. Mom was 120lbs.




















    Thanks for looking guys,
    Tyler

    Sorry to hear about you not keeping boas.

    But excited to welcome you to owning great danes! I have 4. They are a handful! I strongly recommend as many chew toys as possible. I've never had a more destructive puppy than my danes!

      He's adorable! I love Great Danes! My friend used to have some and I loved spending time with them. Hope you enjoy your pup while he's still a pup and have time to get back into boas in the future : )

      My Plott Hound pup has graduated from tearing apart stuffed animals, blankets, shoes, furniture, to tearing the siding off the walls of our house...she wins the most destructive pup award.

            Lol, I can't even imagine how much they must eat! And I hear ya, he goes through toys very fast. Luckily he hasn't gotten to any of our shoes yet.

            I have to take pictures almost daily since he grows so fast, lol. I'll make sure to post them every now and then!

              200 lbs of dog food a month. More when it's colder.

                Beautiful pup! We have a Cane Corso whose name is also Loki, and he definitely lives up to the Norse god of mischief's name. Our guy is finally topped out size-wise at around 140 lbs. Enjoy him while he's "small"!

                  Just a couple extra pictures of Loki. Currently 4 months and 62lbs.

















                  And a few pics of the alligator that lives in the pond out back. Gotta love Florida!

                              I read that too somewhere, but I couldn't find a whole lot about it. Only thing I saw said something like 25% of the embryos don't make it. Are there other problems I should watch out for?

                              We try not to, but he loves to come over when we feed the turtles. He loves spaghetti, lol.
