Meet Xander



Xander is the news member of our family. He's a 4 month old Great Dane. His father was 150 lbs. Xander has huge paws to grow into.

Trooper is not happy but then he wasn't happy when we got Willow. This will take some time. At least with a muzzle he won't hurt Xander.

Welcome Xander!

I have to tell you this: When my Mandy died, I couldn't quit crying. I know how everybody says you shouldn't go right out and get another dog.

My husband couldn't stand to see me cry, and he insisted we go to Wayside Waifs and get a puppy.

I knew it wasn't the right thing to do, but Cliff yelled at me, so I went.

I planned to get a baby puppy, but this one two-year-old dog kept rubbing against her restraining cage every time we passed.

We took her. It's been three years now, and I have no doubt she was the right doggie for us.

I think somehow you know when it's the right dog.

I haven't cried since we brought Sadie home.

Thanks Stacey!

Donna, Mandy wouldn't want you to be sad. Neither would Willow. We can not hold that love in. We just have to share it with another dog.

He is adorable. I LOVE the ears. And he's got a great expression. The markings on his face resemble those of my cat, Dixie.

Awesome mug on Xander - he looks like he's so happy to be in his forever home. Love that you can have joy. I always marvel how the wind slams a door shut but then ruffles the curtains and carries your spirit through the open window....

Spyder said...

Cate, He a very sweet boy too!

Melinda, Those ears are sooooo soft. He even has freckles on the pads of those HUGE paws.

Jen, We still get get choked up about Willow but Xander is really helps bring joy into our lives.
