Little dog - meet big dog


Barqs, our Cairn Terrier, has done great with the past two guest dogs we have had. They were her size, and males.

Today, and for the next 13 days, we have Angel. Oh GOD! I love this dog. I've always wanted a huge, cuddly dog. She is _75_ pounds (versus Pepper's 11 and Barq's 13)!!! Barqs still hasn't stopped bowing up to her. I think she feels threatened by Angel's size, even though Angel would gladly roll over and let Barqs do whatever she wants. This is the most laid back, snuggly dog I have ever seen. If you stop petting her, she plants one of those huge paws on you. They are bigger than my kids' hands.

It's going to be an interesting 2 weeks.

(BTW - Pepper likes her. Pepper likes everybody and everything. I don't even bother to leash her anymore when we bring in a new dog.)

What kind of dog is she?

I love big dogs too. :)

My fiance wants a Great Dane .. and I'm sure at some point we'll have one, but I'm not sure how Abbi would take to it since she's easily intimidated by dogs even the slightest bit larger than her.

She's a Golden Retriever. I have also changed my mind on the big dog issue. She laid down in a mud pit in the backyard. I'm used to my small dogs, so I pick them up, put them in the sink, and wash them off. Can't do that with a 78 pound dog! I had to get my dogs out of the way, hose her down in the backyard, bring out a towel, all kinds of stuff.
