You'll have to tell us when the games are on so everyone can watch.  He will be the most well supported (fan wise) player out there.

I have mice but they are living with us against my will.  I got Terminix out to take care of them but I still see their poop.

I think she missed the critical time with her mom and siblings where she was to learn the rules of being a social being.  Maybe a trainer could help with some suggestions or a home with a dominant dog that will let the puppy know forcefully but not feircely that what she is doing is not all right.

Wow, it's great to see your face in there with the girls.

We have a monthly bath routine in the tub. 
-Both get brushed throughly outside.
-We then go inside get treats and run up the stairs
-Rocco gets in the tub with a little dragging (he knows I plan to squeeze his anal gland and he hates that)while Maia stands in the bathroom and watches.
-As soon as Rocco is done and getting dried, Maia is already trying to get in.
-I keep Rocco in the bathroom with us until Maia is done
-I then open the bathroom door (make sure all other doors in your house are closed unless you like wet floors, walls, and sheets)
-The dogs both tear out of the bathroom chasing each other, in the winter they go in their room in the basement to dry more, in the summer out the back door they go.

-In between baths, I spray either people body spray (Rocco loves the Vanilla from Bath and Body) or the dog perfume spray.

I got lucky, my guys have always been decent at baths but I have been giving them baths monthly with the same routine since they were puppies.

What a handsome boy.

Just a funny story I thought I would share with you guys.

I am driving home from Target yesterday with my cousin who is my age.  We had been looking at baby stuff and everything else at Target (it being our favorite store and all).  She turns to me and says "Why can't you just get another big, drooly, hairy dog instead of having a baby?  You could even get another boy who is stupid like Rocco."

Well, all I could do was laugh.  The baby wasn't planned per say and I really would have loved to get a another big, drooly, hairy puppy but it's just not going to happen.

Since I became pregnant, Maia is attached to my hip, she even wants to sit in my lap, which isn't possible with her being so big.  She hasn't really acted out beyond barking when I put her in her cage and walk away.  I am with everyone else that she is feeding off your feelings and the pregnancy.

I wish I could help but Rocco loves to be brushed and Maia will tolerate anything I do to her because she is a big baby.

Maia, my English Mastiff has had quite a few UTIs.  I give her yogurt and cranberry juice in small quanitities twice a week.  It's a nice treat and she seems to be UTI free.

Thank you all for the congratulation s.  I had planned to increase by one good man before adding a little one but I got it a little backwards. 

I am open to advice on how to handle a crazy excitable Rocco and a shy, stranger weary Maia with a new baby and lots of visitors.

He looks awesome. ;D  If you decide you don't like him, I would like to be in line to get him.

I hope so, the baby is going to have to have great balance when it learns to walk or it's going to get push over a lot.
