Meet Soldier

Sable and Stella got a new BIG little brother this weekend...his name is Soldier!

We were all in love instantly and it's like he's been part of the family all along!

Soldier is a Great Dane and right now he's between 3 and 4 months old. I had a Dane when I was younger and have wanted another one for so long...we already have two dogs, though and Michael wasn't convinced about a 3rd dog in the beginning. But after lots of long talks and a lot of pleading he came around to welcome Soldier into our home. And now he's smitten!!! Just like I knew he would be! Just like the kids and I are, too!

The nickname for Great Danes is Gentle Giant and it's for good reason. Every Dane I've met is sweet and gentle and loving...and Soldier is all of that for sure. He is already attached to me at the hip. He's like a shy kid - he literally hides behind my legs! And if I get up and leave the room he's right there!!

Sable & Stella have welcomed him in as well - though Sable is definitely letting him know that she is the alpha dog in this house...and honestly, Soldier is fine to let her be, too! LOL! I have to admit I did bribe Sable a little bit & brought a very nice treat home for her before we picked up Solder!
Sable's in heaven - she got a treat as big as she is!! LOL 🐶🐶🐶
Sable can walk completely under Soldier right now he's so much bigger than her, but you wouldn't know - she acts like she is ten feet tall! Ha ha! Stella on the other hand is just happy for another playmate...this shaggy girl (who's going to have a spa day next week) didn't have a moment of pause accepting Soldier!!

Michael was out of town today so mother and I took the kids and Soldier to the park for a fun afternoon & a little leash work for Soldier! He did really well!

Our lunch was a picnic in the park, which is always fun!
