I saw that dog on Westminster. My husband turned to me and said, "I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful Alaskan Malamute!" Gorgeous dog. I don't have any personal experience with them, but I understand they are very loyal to their pack leader (which would be you, if you got one). I also have read that they aren't the best dog for small kids.

You know what that little stinker did last night? He pulled them out. I could have strangled him. He said he didn't need them anymore, so he just picked them out. So now he has some butterfly bandaids until I deem him healed enough.

Good job keeping his growth at a slow/steady pace. I'm sure you already knew that having previously owned a GD.
You should get him a personalized jersey with his name on the back. LOL Be sure to post a picture of it if you get one for him. I'm not getting Domi his own jersey until he's full grown.

Definitely keeping his growth rate at a slow, steady pace. I recently joined a board of mastiff owners, and they have given me invaluable advice on what to feed him. He's currently on Eagle Pack for Giant Breed Puppies, but we'll be switching him to the adult brand in a month or two.

I like to walk him every day for about 45 minutes, but with this rain he missed his walk last night. What a difference. He's bouncing off the walls with energy. Maybe it's time to invest in a tread mill. LOL
