Meet Baird

Hello Everyone!
As of the 12th of January our pack had been increased by one. This little fellow is Baird.
As you can probably guess he is a fawn Great Dane from some superb breeders across the country from us. Now don't let those eyes fool you, he is a total handful. He has yet to learn that he can't play 'bitey face' games with us all the time and that he needs to leave us alone when we are sleeping. Besides that he is a joy!
Mum took a 7 hour round trip to go get him when he was 8 weeks old-and she said he was such a gentleman in the car. He slept the whole way back, apart from when Mum stopped at the motorway services to get some diesel and came back to him sitting up wondering what was going on!
Where'd you go?!
After the little one had got home, gone 'toilets' outside (he held in it the whole journey back- Mum and her car where relieved!) and settle in, we were introduced to him! Dante and Daisy have seen puppies before, Dante simply put Baird in his place and then wanted to play, so did Daisy Boo..but as for me- I had no idea what to do! I wouldn't let him touch me ( I thought he had some form of puppy cooties!) and Mum was careful not to stress me out too much as she know that added stress can cause us Great Danes to bloat.
But it took all of four days to go from this... THIS (sorry for the bad photo quality it was taken on Mums rubbish phone!)
I hate to admit it, but I think I'm going to like helping my little brother grow up.Dante and Daisy Boo are enjoying having a little one around too, Dante for the cuddles and Daisy Boo for the bitey face games!
 We are getting a rather big pack of doggies now, so Mum is very careful to keep up all aware of what we can and can't do, I'm still a baby myself so I had to have some warnings from Mum to not to be too rough with my little brother- I am getting better, I just don't realise how big I am! We are all still on the BARF diet, but Baird is getting 4 meals a day while we get two. Mum is also bulking up his meals with Arden Grange dry food which have all the essentials for a growing pup.

Mum keeps the feeding routine the same first, she puts the bowls down, makes us wait, then release us Dante first, then Daisy Boo then me. Now Baird has learnt to sit and wait till he is allowed to eat. As you can all imagine it is hard work for all of us! Baird seems to be having a great time though.

We also got to play in the snow, but that is something to tell you about another day. I'm going to grab some sleep while I can!




  1. Welcome, Baird - you are just so cute, but we think you are going to get to be a big boy very quickly. You have found yourself one wonderful family. Congrats to all.

  5. I second what Frankie and Ernie said!! Baird is going to be striking!! He is now so cute--pretty--handsome!!! Getting a puppy is the way to go. I have had only one puppy a German Shepard and he wouldn't leave this fence even if the gate was left open. I have gotten rescue dogs since 84.
    THANK YOU for your visit to my blog!!!
    Zoie had a history of jumping fences and I was working on that with her. She had jumped the fence 5 times before but had stopped and had not jumped the fence for over 3 months until that night that she killed herself!!! It is so sad, I loved her so much and she loved me so very much too!!!

  6. Congrats on the new edition. You guys look like you are already enjoying each other.

  7. OH my C - I love your doggies.. I bet a couple of them would let me ride horsie back on their back. What fun we could have racing with the wind. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

  8. Oh my goodness oh my goodness. You just sent my MOM over the edge!! Baird is so handsome and cute and all that other stuff. MOM is still gushing over him. I think I told you already my MOM has a very special place in her heart for Great Danes. You made her day.

  9. Baird is sooooooo cute. We are really going to enjoy watching him grow up. We know you guys will teach him all sort of awesome things.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
