Sparky...


This is the puppy.
He looks bigger in real life (well, duh).
Weighs over 25 pounds and stands about eighteen inches
at the shoulder. This is the best I could do considering he
won't stop moving for more than half a second once per hour.
A real berzerk-o, lemme tell ya!
Only six months old and people are telling me he probably
won't slow down for another two years... or more. Damn.

A small price to pay for a friend that will always be loyal and love you no matter what. Good looking dog.

Jean said...

Larry - He is definitely a lover-boy :)
I plan on keeping him a long time.

The Lab/Scottie mix I had never did slow down. Ditto kdzu's remark. Sparky stole your heart fast, huh!

Winston said...

Fine looking specimen! He's lucky to have found you to adopt...

Jean said...

Bonnie - yeah... it was instant :)

Winston - musta been fate...:)

I never look at black dogs again after I heard the term "grimm" used to refer to them. Granted a grimm is usually something like an Irish Wolfhound of mythic proportions and flame shooting out his... er... well, and so Sparky isn't probably a grimm, but until potty training is over you might want to keep a fire extinguisher handy. *wink*

Yeah. photographing a puppy is like trying to photograph a falling leaf.

He looks... uh... energetic and happy.

Jean said...

Corby - a charmer, for sure.

Irrel - fire extinguisher?... dang, I need to google 'grimm' :)

Scott - heh... you've got him pegged!

Rick said...

Do I see some pit bull in that puppy? Looks an awful lot like my own pitador. Cute.

Jean said...

Rick - I was told he is lab and chow. He doesn't have the stocky head or barrel chest of a pit, that I can see, anyway.

Yogi is 4 this summer. He's purbread lab (official name Yogi of Jellystone Baker).

He didn't start to slow down until probably the last six months, even if I walked him 3 or 4 miles every morning and had a pet sitter take him out at lunch he was still raring to go when I'd roll in. Now he just hangs out with me while I paint or write. Ahhhh.

Purebred. . I can't spell until that first pot of coffee is gone.

Jean said...

Scully - 4... 4... guessing I am going to get some excercise!

k said...

And now your first puppy post! YAY!!!

Jean said...

k - hehe, thanks!
oh, and...welcome home!

Kinda looks like Bo's NeeNeeGirl - that is before she got fat from all of Bo's love and minus all that gray hair on her chinny chin chin.

Dogs are great! They're work but worth it!
