Puppies!!!

Well, I see Tim and Julie had puppies, and puppy posts are still allowed on ssnakess. So, without furhter adoo, guess what - Sarge produced puppies!!!

The story.....

As I had said, everything was against us for attending the Red Deer show.

One of the many obsticals, was, we had Sarge puppies on the way.

Shadow, our female dane from Kodiak lines was bred to Sarge, from Sheboan lines, a line of true boar hunting hound Great Danes bred in Germany since the Old World Mastiff. Sarge, himself, is the uncontested largest dog in Canada,

So, less than 2 hours into the trip (9:00 Friday morning), my mom calls, to let us know Shadow was having puppies. My mother was under the weather at the time, but camped out at the house with Shadow (We took Sarge to the Kennels the day earlier).

5 puppies were born, all looking like both parents (which means their genetics are pure and true). One had a cleft pallet (could be genetic) and was culled by a good friend of mine (the one he and his future wife had picked) The second one they picked (Curtis and Tara for those of you who know them), was laid on and smothedred by Shadow, the next day - and didnt' make it. We've had worse trouble when we had kittens - surivival of the fittest is sometimes a good thing. They decided not to jinx things, and wait till the next litter to pick one. I'm still paranoid she will lay on another, but they are now much larger and stronger.

So, we have 2 males and 1 female. The one that looks most like Sarge, and is by far the largest dog - is going to go live with Henry P. and family. If any dog has the chance to be bigger than Sarge, it is this puppy - I can't wait to watch it grow to 200 lbs.

Everyone wants a male like Sarge, the female of the litter, which looks like Shadow, is yet unspoken for. We hope to have another litter some time next year as well - and Shadow is being a really good mommy dog right now - so I expect that will go well.

I will get some pictures on here tommorrow - I love puppies!!!

Congrats! Given Sarge's size, the babies must be... what... 80? 90 lbs?

Holy! That's the picture I remember. Was it hard for your shadow to have such large pups? And holy cow, I hope he's friendly. HUUGE!

Liz, forum. You talk to everyone on a forum. And last I checked, anyone could reply. But chill, I never meant anything offensive.

Congrats on the Sarge babies - sorry to hear they didn't all make it, but good news that you are carrying on the line. He is a very impressive dog!! The pic you have of him by the truck is one of the best - no doubt that he is huge when you see him in comparison to a truck!

looking forward to baby pics,

mary v.

Thanks all. Will post pictures in a couple of hours.

Lizlady, after reading it over, I can see how my post does look like an add. I appologize for this, I was just trying to comment on how everyone wants one that looks like Sarge. I wouldn't sell one of these puppies to someone I don't know over the internet - so I can assure you that I did not intend the post to act as an add.

Many people on this forum know about Sarge, hence the post about having Sarge puppies.

Here are some quick pictures

Sarge by the truck (It isn't a small truck either, got me a 4 x 4)


Sarge, in his old age, enjoys company now - even new people


And finally, some puppy pictures. I did not pose any of these shots, puppies are just so cute and fun to take pictures of. I will get some better pictures of them when their eyes open.
