Last August we got a new dog. Dan's daughter had been involved in a dog rescue and wanted him to have a new home. She had been told he was 1-1/2 years old and a Canadian lab. The rescue dog came with the name Tank. If I had realized how scared he was of everything I would have changed it to Scooby-Doo.
We had lost our dog Sammi in May and "Baby" was still mourning the loss of her playmate. So we had talked about a new playmate. "Baby" was not impressed with her new friend. Her nose was severely out of joint when we brought him home.
It didn't take us long to realize "Tank" was much younger than we thought. He had not yet learned how to raise his leg. He was closer to 8 months. He may be a lab cross but he definitely is of Great Dane ancestry. He runs, looks and sounds just like Sammi. He also thinks he is a lap dog.
"Baby" is still not real impressed. She gets tired of him treating her like a chew toy. Are my older dogs impressed with Tank? Not so much. They think he is annoying.
When we first brought Tank home he was terrified of everything. In fact my husband farted and scared the dog. Now he runs away and then shortly comes back to investigate what scared him.
We really should have named him Scooby-Doo.
