Doolin & VooDoo – it’s good to have a little brother
VooDoo our beautiful Mantle Merle Great Dane, who has SO much energy and is DESPERATE to play, 24 hours a day 🙂 is SO SO SO SO happy to have a baby brother Great Dane puppy to play with. I’m quite glad Doolin was about 3 months when he came to us. VooDoo would have totally squished him in her love if he was an 8 week old puppy when we brought him home. It took a couple weeks of careful monitoring and some behavior modification activities (think 5 minute crate time outs when she jumped on him in her love 🙂 ) until she learned that she had to be a bit careful when playing with him. After being kicked out of Doggy Day Care for her size and exuberance, she was so thrilled with her new baby brother.
These two are so cute and Doolin’s addition to the family has been a blessing for us and especially for his “sister” VooDoo. VooDoo and Doolin aren’t related by blood or breeder but they are of course still “brother and sister” in our book 🙂
