Hi everyone!

So I haven't been around for awhile.  Dante's getting so grownup! He's still stuck in the doberteens and tests me, but we make small steps everyday. He's 10 and 1/2 months now and he's finally a big boy!  He started to lift his leg when he pees!!  It's so funny watching him try to figure it out.  Sometimes he will lift his leg and loose his balance and he tries to right himself, pee going everywhere.  

so of course I had to post more pictures! 

Dante and Drake have a tentative peace between them now, and most evening they can be found on the couch together.

 

We call this sleeping postion the Dante Donut.  He gets so small. 

Took this picture because it mimics one I took of him as a pup

original pic for comparison same couch.

Oh my is he a handsome boy!! I love that he is lounging around with Drake - it gives me hope that someday Bandit will want to lounge around with our cat instead of play with him all day lol

I can still remember the adorable photo of Dante in your shopping cart!

He is beautiful/handsome.... So soulful:) Did his color actiually change or just the red in the photo?

Woof from B, she would love to play with him

Tal - His nose is so strong too!!  He's nose-butted me in the face a few times and it hurts!

emtowns - Like I said, it's a tentative peace, he will sometimes put his head over Drake's back when he's just lying there, causing Drake to hiss and paw at him, but we're very vigilant when they are together.  My little calico girl, Molly, though, still doesn't like him very much, lots of hissing and spitting at him when he gets too close. 

pb - The color difference is mainly because in the puppy pic it was natural light and the recent one was at night with my crappy phone camera, but he did get darker as he grew, he is a very nice deep rusty red on his markings now.  Dante sends woofs back to B!

Love the "Dante donut."  In our house when Ginger does that, we say "she's being 'little Ginger'" because she can curl up so small!

Dante is so adorable ! They all grow up so fast don't they.... Them lifting their leg really begins at the most random times my boy is 2 years old and still pees squatting lol I don't expect him to ever lift his leg especially in a house ruled by female dogs he will forever squat.

He definitely grown up as handsome lover boy now, what a sweet heart. Glad to see he's doing more male thing now and great buddy to your Drake!
