Blossom is huge..... There is no other way to describe her. She is bigger than my other girls. Molly weighs 100 lbs and Emma is around 90. We can't pick Blossom up anymore so I have no idea what she weighs. She is about 10" taller than Emma... And about 5" taller than Molly.
On the 13th, she was 9 months old. She is still a young pup... I am going to wait till she is a yr old before we get her fixed... I want her to grow some more first... When I look at her, I definately see the bull mastiff in her but not the great pyrenees dad. She definately has bulk in her build. Sturdy and tall.
She is smart as a whip and by my side all the time. She is an excellent watch dog and great with all the cats. Well, I say she is a watch dog but that is only as long as her "friends are around her". I walked her to the a lot a few acres away where some people are building a little shack and they had a dog that barked and her and Emma ran like heck. It scared them so bad. Blossom ran to the end of the road and then she stopped like "what am I doing?".... She turned around to growl and I made her go on home. She is so funny.... And I think she is just beautiful!! She is my baby..
You can see how much bigger she is than Emma.... And Emma is not a little dog by any means. Blossom makes her look little however. Emma is such a good dog and is so smart. She teaches Blossom many good things. They have a lot of the same mannerisms which is nice. Emma is getting old and grey around the muzzle but I suspect she will still be around for quite a few more years. She is a very healthy dog. They all are... But Blossom has a good friend/teacher in Emma..
She is interested in everything. We are working so much I worry about her getting socialized. She has a huge head and jowls... She is going through growth stages. She'll get tall and skinny and then she gains weight. Then she gets tall and skinny again and then gains some more weight. She is a very very big girl....... She is solid, strong, and hard as a rock. She is not afraid of anything in her environment. But she has not seen any dogs since we have had her but that one time. And very few people. But she is well behaved. And non skittish. She is a very good dog and basically calm most of the time. She listens, watches and learns..
These pics are taken this morning. It was 22 degrees last night and I could not leave them out in spite of a nice hayed dog house with a tarped porch. Much too cold. I had put them an old sarape down to lay on but the cats took it over last night. That's Angie in the picture. She is a spoiled little kitty who alternates from being a dog or a human. But she is not a cat...
I am working two jobs right now saving money to finish our cat enclosure and to increase the size of the dog yard by an acre or so. It will take a few months to save up. We also used part of the extra money to winterize our tires. So I won't be on here very much. I don't have a lot of spare time and 4 days a week I am working 18 hrs.. Sun is my only day off and I use it for "catching up on sleep". Wed and Sat I only work 8 hrs. But mon, tues, thurs and fri........it's rough. I leave the house at 4:45am and get home at 1am. But it will all be worth it when we get all the work done. I told Juan I would rather him stay home and me work the extra job because as we buy the things to do the work, he can do it... I can't build fences too well... So right now, he is the caregiver for our critters and he is doing a wonderful job. I am so proud of him.
All the cats are doing wonderful. Jimmy is strickly an inside cat now. He hates the cold and sits in the room with us all the time waiting for handouts. Flower is fat as a tick. And all the others are doing great. Everyone is healthy and strong...
Now off to vacuum.......... hehe
p.s. Is there any kind of market for pet hair? I could make a fortune....
