I took Shadow to the vet today for his 12 week checkup and shots and he weighed in at a whopping 29.7 lbs!! He is not fat. He is just going to be a VERY big dog. The vet said he thought he'd top out at about 130 lbs. YIPES! He is so beautiful right now. His fur is soft and silky and so very shiny. He's got a cute personality although I'm not sure he's the most brilliant dog in the world. He has a big deep voice and huge feet that he spends a lot of time tripping over. He has done so well on housetraining. His only flaw is that he seems to like to dig and he also likes to pre-clean the dishes before I run the dishwasher. Tonight he was actually standing on the dishwasher door with his body inside the washer. Funny dog.
I am a Mom to two fabulous children, Maggie (23) and Daniel (19). I live in Kansas with my hardworking husband,, and my three darling dogs. I am a writer. My dream of all dreams is to move to Pismo Beach or Grover Beach and open a little restaurant that only serves breakfast and lunch called The Black Cat Cafe or a fabulous hotdog stand like the old Der Weinerschnitzel and live in a ramshackle beach cottage filled with hardwood floors, books, rag rugs, dogs, cats and sandy feet. I'd also have to have great cushy furniture, beautiful flower gardens, lots of chippy paint and a ramshackle rocker on the front porch to watch the waves from. Heavenly. If that didn't pan out I'd settle for a hillbilly cabin in the Ozarks filled with quilts and my favorite mason jars. I would plant a huge veggie garden and befriend raccoons and walk around in moth eaten sweaters. I'm not crazy, just a little eccentric.
