He's tall, he's blonde, he's of German descent...
Meet Dirk Nowoofzki the Great Dane!!!!!
See the resemblance?
His namesake, duh.
Brought him home today. He is as sweet as can be.
He has to wear the cone thing on his head a few more weeks and then 4-5 months of taping so that his ears stand up tall and pretty like his mommas. The breeder cropped the ears because she was going to show him and cropping is pretty standard for show Danes, although it's becoming acceptable to leave them natural (like Elle's were). And I love how they look. And no I don't care if you think it's cruel.
Housebreaking and crate training and leash walking and all that other puppy stuff is going to be a whipping, but he's so sweet. We are already having lots of fun. :)
Will try to take some better pics on my nice camera, but just wanted to post these for now!
